And finally…

I know I said I'd written my last blog post for 2011 but when you feel like being creative it can't be helped and this is just a really quick one! Besides, all the Christmas shopping is done, presents wrapped, cards posted, just some mince pies to make (and mulled wine to drink!) I've been... Continue Reading →

Beanbags for the girls…

Well, I've been so busy these last two weeks, almost too busy to write blog posts, but not quite...  These are two beanbags I made for a mum at school who ordered them as Christmas presents for her girls. The fabric on the pockets is a gorgeous floral pattern, one in blue and one in... Continue Reading →

All nice and cosy…

I know not many people use egg cosies these days but my six year old wanted me to make him one and how could I refuse? It gave me a chance to have more of a practice at machine embroidery and was pretty simple to make, thanks to my lovely Poppy Treffry book. I look... Continue Reading →

I’m so excited!…

The cushion had originally been made from a lovely pink, spotty fabric left over from the curtains in the room. It was just... Continue Reading →

I have finally set up my gilhoolie shop on folksy! HOORAY! You'll find a few gilhoolie things on there so far but I'm still working on adding some more including my bags, bunting and the rest of my lampshades. So please come back in a week or so and have another look (don't worry, I'm... Continue Reading →

Cuddly Christmas trees…

I spent the day in front of the computer yesterday as well as taking lots of photos for my folksy shop (nearly there, promise!) and really, really missed doing something creative. So I took a trip to the sewing shop this morning and bought some red cotton fabric to make some more hanging Christmas trees.... Continue Reading →
