Secret Swap

What a super day I received my swap in the post today, from Kool Kooky Kreatures.

I got the jiffy bag open and inside i found 2 parcels wrapped in tissue all covered in butterflies, so pretty.
I decided to open the little one first, just as i pulled the tape off i seen a little Kitty keeking out at me, it was a kitty face brooch which i am sure will find its way onto one of my bags.

Filled with excitement i opened the next package as i look in i see a set of pink legs...

those pink legs belonged to a cute little needle felted bear, isn't she cute!
She is mostly pink with purple cheeks and pretty purple eyelashes. She has poseable arms and legs that have tiny pink buttons on them (i love buttons).
I think i will have to keep an eye on her, she has a look that she might get up to some mischief!
I haven't decided on a name for her yet, i need something that captures her mischievous look and her cuteness.
She has found a nice place for herself on my bookcase.

You can see everyone elses swap items in the uk handmade secret swaps group on flickr.

It's Been a Bookmaking Day

I got two notebooks made today, my plan was to time myself making them and time each part of the process. This was my attempt to find the most efficient way to make them and keep the costs down. It didn't go as planned, things kept happening that messed up my times.
Well I have two nice books to list in my shop so on the whole a good day!

Brown and Turquoise spotty

Red with flowers and matching stitching

Sale or Return

Some of my felt brooches have found a new temporary home in Damselfly on great western road in Glasgow.
These are my first items to go on sale in a bricks and mortar shop so wish them luck finding their way to new homes.
