Patchwork Hearts And An Etsy UK Christmas Feature For Handmade Monday


Another week of Christmassy makes, its an exciting time as i never know what is going to take people's fancy next... This week the focus has been patchwork - one of my favourite things, yay! Before i tell you about that though, there's been some other excitement afoot... 


Etsy Christmas Style Guide Feature

A few weeks ago i had a polite request from the team at Etsy UK for the loan of a couple of my Christmas stockings for a photo shoot they were doing to promote shopping handmade in the UK this Christmas.

I popped them in the post and they were soon returned to me but it wasn't until this week that i got to see the pictures... I'd been getting views in my Etsy shop from a completely gorgeous handmade lifestyle blog called Heart Handmade UK. Intrigued, i popped along there to find the Etsy Christmas Style Guide photos featuring my stockings!



I love the colourful kitch look they've gone for and feel really chuffed to see my stockings among so many beautiful things.

If you're interested, they are still available to buy from my Etsy shop and other outlets, £12 each as they are or £16 personalised.



Patchwork Lavender Hearts

On the making front i had a lovely custom order for three patchwork lavender hearts. When i work on something like this i get a real sense of helping one person sending love to others, its a pleasure and a privilege and i really enjoyed making this little trio.


They are wrapped and off to their new owners now...


... but i have also made these mini versions (11x11cms)...



...which will be listed in my shops shortly priced £10 each. As always, if you've taken a shine to them you can get in touch with me before then!


Nature Finds Christmas Cards Update




Finally for today i just wanted to let you know that my Nature finds Christmas cards are now available either blank or with 'Season's Greetings' printed inside.



Thank you very much to everyone who helped me to choose which greeting to use!

Thank you too for finding time to visit my blog at this busy time of year, i know you're all busy getting Christmassy too... i can't wait to see what you've been up to this week over at Handmade Harbour!

Have a great week :) x
