i love paper chains...


do you like the paper chain i made for christmas? i used a lovely wrapping paper from oxfam, its brown parcel paper with red snowflakes,stars, reindeers and swirls printed onto it. i love christmas decorations that look old fashioned like this.

pearly heart...




i just thought i'd show you this little pearly button heart i made recently. the main heart is made from plain calico and its covered in lots of mother of pearl buttons and finished with a black ribbon to hang it up with. i make these hearts in different fabrics and with different embellishments all the time and they are lovely to give as presents, and can be hung on a door handle, drawer knob or even hung on the christmas tree.

im brand new...

so this is my very first post on my very first blog!
once i figure out how to use it properly, i will show you lots of things that i make and lots of things that i like.
