Sewing, Sun and a Cup of Tea!

Been a busy week this week making things for up and coming craft fairs throughout the year.  I’ve also taken some more pictures for my portfolio book which once finished will be photographed and uploaded in this blog.   Been really beautiful sunny week too and I have interspersed my sewing with tea breaks and, I had my first cup of tea of the year in the garden again 🙂  I am sure February is the earliest I have ever managed it!  Although I did have my down coat and furry boots on!

snow boots!

These boots are wonderful – good grip in wet/snowy weather and warm to wear! As I have a dodgy knee and need a knee replacement I can’t risk slipping anywhere as then I will be disabled again for a few days and unable to do anything much, let alone sewing!




Here are some ipad and netbook covers I will be putting on folksy this weekend! I only make things in fabrics which I like to look at and feel! I  am currently in a retro/shabby chic phase, having  developed a liking for Cath Kidson prints and flowery fabrics in general.  The exception to this is the cow fabric for my new moo range – more items to come in this!

Here are some of my new mobile ‘phone covers mainly in Tana Lawn fabric which I really like as it’s so soft and the colours are all visually appealing to me.

Actually the Kaffe Fasset fabric has been made into a Kindle cover!

This is a Kindle cover which has a retro look – it reminds me of my teenage years in the 70s!!






And now  it’s time for Dancing on Ice and a look at what other interesting things fellow crafters have been doing over at Wendy’s Handmade Harbour!

  1. Sitting outside in the sunshine at any time of the year is lovely. You just have to alter the amount of time spent outside appropriately!!! I like the moo fabric but am to, generally drawn to more floral fabrics. Hope you see more sun this week 🙂

  2. What a wonderful variety of fabrics you’ve used for your lovely creations! They will look so lovely all together on your craft stalls 🙂

    I had lunch outside in the garden a couple of weeks ago… such a wonderful novelty and hopefully a taste of things to come! x

  3. Lovely fabrics in that first iPad cover.

    I’m just trying to decide what fabrics to use to make one for my mum’s new iPad – I’ll have to hurry as I’m trying to get it done for Mother’s Day

  4. Well sitting in the sun would be lovely, but, unfortunately in our bit of supposedly sunny Devon it hasn’t shown it’s face 🙁 Maybe it’s saving it up for the summer 🙂 I quite like the retro 70’s fabric, maybe it’s my age Lol!

  5. I love the soft florals and the cow fabric the best, but the Kaffe Fasset covers look great too! The retro 70’s fabric is great and reminds me of granny’s kitchen curtains 🙂

  6. Ohhh I love your gadget cases – they’re absolutely gorgeous and especially the moo print, really fun 🙂 Well done on managing the first cuppa in the garden – I’ve not braved ours yet! Simmi x

  7. Love the moo fabric. I enjoy being in the warm too much to risk having a cup of tea outside at this time of year.
