Christmas in July…

Last month I completed my first Christmas project of the year, its a Dresden table runner for the Craft cotton Blog and I wanted to share my free pattern with you guys here aswell.

Christmas fabric from Craftcotton

I love the Dresden blocks, and their versatility.

This is a fabulous size table runner, measuring 21″ x 66″

The Dresden blocks are sewn onto a white background, with hand sewn red binding, to really make this table runner pop.

busy busy busy…

Wow, can you believe November is coming to an end, I’m feeling slightly uneasy about Christmas this year, not sure its going to be the same at all, but my kids are still very excited, so much so, we spent the weekend choosing our tree and decorating it.

The lounge is looking very festive, and smells amazing as this morning I made the Christmas cake – my favourite part of Christmas – so it is beginning to feel like Christmas.

This week I got to play with the new collection ‘Kyoto’ by Stuart Hillard for @craftcottonco, teamed with a gorgeous shimmering coral fabric.

Craftcotton also just released some new Christmas fabric, so I designed this cute Christmas present table runner. Both my patterns will be available soon on the Craftcotton blog

My cat who returned last week after being missing for 81 days, is super keen to be involved in all the photo shots

I’ve also been busy making luxury handmade ties, I’ve decided to personalize them, to make them extra special when giving them as a gift. I don’t know about you, but I find men really tricky to buy for, and I think these ties make a beautiful and thoughtful gift. A short message using a few words can be added to each tie.

Great for dads, grandads, uncles, nephews and friends, for lots of special occasions, whether it be a birthday, Christmas, new job, wedding or fathers day.
