Helen’s Challenge

I have a blog and a challenge for you to check out www.helenstubbings.blogspot.com. This is the lovely designer of the PJ party book, and inventor of colourque (copyright symbol thingy – don’t know how to do it on here!)

Helen has issued a  challenge for her new designs (read the blog from Augst 27th), and the prizes are pretty good. Get designing!

Also, her Hugs and Kisses wallhanging class is coming up (Sept 22nd & 29th) Still a couple of spots left, so book in soon!



Happy Birthday Claudia


A Birthday for Claudia yesterday – wont give it away, but it ended in a zero, so required a celebration. So off we all went for dinner and drinks. Oh, and cake of course!

A very special night for a very special friend.

That’s Claudia and Ross above; and me, Claudia and Sue below.


Wishing you many more special Birthdays in the future, Claudia.

Naming Day Certificates




I did a beautiful naming day service for twins last week-end. Haven’t got any photo’s of the babies to show, so I thought I’d share their certificates instead.

When I tried to source some, the only ones I could find were very old-fashioned with butterfly’s or Teddy’s (and not beautiful ones!)

So I did what any of us worth our salt would do, and made them myself. Let me know what you think!



These kits make great pressies, or a fun treat to make over the week-end. Everything needed is included in the kit, and the end result is easily achievable.


Or of course you could just buy the finished product!


For all the wool embroiderers out there we now have Dr’s Flannel in stock.

What’s in the box?


Meet some of our new friends!

Who’d have thought so many bears could fit in this size box! It was like Mary Poppins bag…they just kept coming out!


Amy Butler Scrappin’ Bag


I so want this bag! Designed for Scrappers, but will work for any craft – gorgeous design from Amy Butler….drool! Better get in fast….
