Oh where do I start? Done loads recently, which is why Iv hardly blogged, do you like the birdie? made for my friend wendy, its a page in her birdie book, every page must be based on a song about birds, am I the only one who remembers this song?
And the silly book? finished at last, do you like it?
Could I have got any more onto this cover?
This started life as a white pillow case, its been painted, stamped, printed, embellished,
there may well be a bell on it somewhere.

and of course, a union jack...
as if I didn't have enough to do, I also entered the big postcard swap, the theme was celebrations.
I v based it on bonfire night, it may be a little odd explaining that we celebrate the gunpowder plot to someone from the USA and then I  will have to explain the guy,   hmm awkward....
I have also got ahead with my Christmas sewing
, ha! as if.
actually finishing last years Christmas sewing
And this? ah well this something I will tell you about in my next post.
 and this? its a little delicate page that Iv painted and stitched, I wanted it to be lightweight but have a firm backing so I used net curtain, it doesn't work- its too wobbly, but after consulting a kind fellow blogger, Pam from the crafty mugwump, I now know I should have used cotton organdie, I keep learning new stuff by picking the brains of friends I have made on line, thankyou ,all of you, your a great help..


  1. Blimey! I hope I get to see some of this later! Let me know how big Wendy's pages are too! You've been busy!

  2. I LOVE the manic ..ness of this xx dont know if thats a word.. but Im sure you know what I mean xx

  3. I love all the colour here on such a miserable wet day as today. Your birdie page is lovely and yes, I do remember the song! I know what you're doing with the shirt and it's fab!

  4. It is very beautifull. I like very much. Congretulations and good luck.

  5. Love it all, especially the bird and the silly book. Fabulous!

  6. What a burst of colour and joyfulness! Thank you!

  7. What a lovely page. Another type of fabric that you can use you're backing is turban cotton. Mind you I'm not sure if you can get that in Lincolnshire we are here in Wolverhampton with plenty of turbans! Anyway it's a very fine cotton you can get it in white. It costs about £1.50 a meter.

  8. Lóve the book and the bird !!!!


I get very excited when I get a comment. So do please send me a comment, thankyou.
