Rabbits in our rockery!!

Well the weather here in Sheffield is wicked it today it is windy, wet and dark a very gloomy day and to top it all snow is forecast later!! Anyway I am very nice, warm and dry here in the studio sorting my scrapbooks out. Since I got back into sewing my scrapbooking has taken some what of a back seat...

For this layout I have used Graphic 45 papers from the Once Upon A Spring Time collection Primrose Cottage

It was this picture that gave me the idea for the page, Ava looks as though she is watching something in the rockery.

The little rabbits are cut out of a sheet of Fairy Folk from the same collection. I stamped some grass here and there and have decoupaged the flowers and rabbits to give some depth to the page.

Really enjoyed myself doing this, always did like Beatrice Potter stories.

Patchwork and Applique class at Craft Den last Saturday

Hello to all my crafting blogging friends. I have some pictures from Saturdays all day patchwork and applique class to show you today. The ladies made cushion cover fronts...






as you can see we had a lot of animal lovers in.




and Wendy's on her fabulous new machine.

Don't you agree aren't they all wonderful? Some of the ladies joining us on Saturday were sewing for the very first time on sewing machines they had already got but never used. If you are interested in any of our sewing classes email sales@craftden.co.uk for more information.

Another Quilt...

This one is what I made for my Mums Christmas box, she had no idea that I was making it...when she unwrapped it on Christmas day, she said "Is this for me" lol

Again I tried it on my bed for size...it would be a shame not to wouldn't it? :-)
The fabrics are Moda and you may recognise the design and colours Basic Grey Origins.
Isn't it great when you can get your favourite papers in fabric, what more could a girl want?

Happy Sewing and Crafting

Black and White Quilt

Brrrr isn't it cold today? Defiantly a day to stay in doors crafting, thats if you are lucky enough to be able to stay in. I thought I would show you what was keeping me busy and quiet before Christmas. This is the quilt I made for my daughters Christmas box. I was just trying it for size on our bed, tempted to leave it there...

If you are interested in trying your hand at some sewing and patchwork our timetable is available here
We now stock fabric and cotton in the studio and are in the process of adding it to our website here

Happy Crafting

Patchwork classes

Happy New Year to you all and best wishes for 2012, lets hope it's a good one! :-) I am not sure where the last couple of months have gone, I blinked and it was 2012... lol

Although I haven't been blogging I have managed to fit some crafting in

 After making so many Christmas cards it was a pleasant change to make a birthday card. I used the fabulous Graphic 45 Alice in Wonderland papers and some rolled ribbon flowers I love making these and I think they finish the card off perfectly, don't you?

I also decorated the inside.

Since Jo and I started the patchwork classes a few months back I am hooked again. I hadn't made anything for ages and now there is no stopping me, bags, cushions, blinds and quilts.... If you love sewing or fancy having a go at patchwork and quilting, no experience necessary the new timetable can be viewed here

These are the cushion covers we will be making on Jan 21st 

in your colour choice and applique design choice, more information available on booking.

Over on our challenge blog Anything Goes we are on challenge 57
The colour BLUE and one other colour, so why not pop over and take a look at what our fabulous design team have been up to and join in?

Happy crafting and sewing.
