It's been a while since I have had time to catch up with you all but here is a quick update. The last couple of months have been manic, working, working and well more working. I've been setting up my only little business and it's finally hit off the ground and I'm very proud to announce, I have opened a shop where we specialise in smaller pieces of fabric for patchwork and small home furnishings. We stock a lovely range of fabrics from Michael Miller to Tilda and even a little bit of Cath Kidston. Although busy I have managed to finish a couple of stitching projects and here they are for you all to see:
I've had a real passion for making lampshades recently and this one I sewn by hand, I simply love it for it's vintage but retro style.
I've finished my Emily Peacock Cross Stitch and I'm very happy with it, it's looking rather beautiful next to my handmade bunny, given to me as a gift from my little sister.
I've even tried more modern lampshades, added a bit of Ric Rac and walla! The lampshade looks simply gorgeous, best part is, you can use absolutely any fabric you love, to customise it to suit your home.
So I've been very busy. :)
My little fabric store is called Patchwork Paradise and you can find some lovely fabric bargains and advice from me when ever you need it.
Some of the beautiful fabrics me and my husband stock are shown below. :) Happy Stitching to you all.
