At last it seems as if Spring has sprung! Fairs are on the horizon and we are looking forward to showing off our lovely blankets. We are also crafting and at the moment are making an assortment of doorstops and felt cupcakes. So far the doorstops are in the shape of ducks, chickens and owls , but we have sheep and cats in mind as well.
Bridget has a lovely collection of vintage style prints from her time in Hong Kong and we have had great fun mixing and matching them. Each animal seems to take on its own personality. Some cheeky, some serious and we have to restrain the children who would really love to have then in the garden!
The cupcakes look very yummy indeed and making them is fun and relaxing. Bridget can be seen of an evening stitching away and debating over chocolate, lemon or strawberry and then of cause there are the toppings, again as I am sure you can imagine, the children would love to have these in the play house. Friends have also asked for some to be used as pin cushions, so you see, they are multi functional – fun to make, fun to play with AND useful!
Should you want to get crafting, contact us and we would happily help with patterns and advise.
Our first fair will be the Dorset Knob Throwing in Cattistock, please come and say ‘Hi’.
Mary and Bridget
