Valentine`s Hearts.

During the past few weeks, I`ve been busy making lots of Valentine`s and Mothers` day brooches for my stockists. They all needed a good topping up after Christmas and I enjoyed making some pretty brooches that look forward to Spring.

Hearts galore for Valentine`s day! These round heart brooches are new.

Another batch of layered corsages. I`m so pleased that these are selling really well. They`re my favourites at the moment, I`ve been wearing one almost every day!

I also had a couple of commissions last month, for a wedding fascinator and a Jaunty Jim cap.

These were people who had found me online and it has made me determined to get on with my online shop. Now that my stockists are topped up it will be my next plan of action!

Catching up…

Whoops! No blog for a couple of weeks…

I must admit I`ve been taking advantage of the sunny days to catch up with friends, get some gardening done and go for some lovely woodland walks.

I`ve been busy sewing too, making stitched heart and daisy brooches for Boho in Aberdour, top ups for my other stockists and lots more fascinators for Katie Cupcake (she`d sold out again!).

I made a fresh batch of decoupage brooches last week, I really like these pinky-toned ones.

I`ve still got lots of other brooches to catch up with to make sure my stockists have plenty for the summer. In the next few days I`ll be sewing rosebud corsages, rosette corsages, tweed hearts, embroidered brooches and lots more little stitched hearts.

I`m so glad that my new little hearts are selling well, they are definately my favourite at the moment and I`ve been wearing one every day. They are really light and dainty, perfect for wearing on a T-shirt or Summer dress.

I hope we have a few more sunny days next week so I can sew in the garden. There`s nothing nicer than sitting on a rug under the apple tree with a cup of tea, getting on with some sewing while listening to a play on the radio. My cat, Matilda, loves the sun and usually keeps me company, sprawled on the rug beside me.

More Fascinators!

My new mini fascinators have been in Miss Katie Cupcake for a week and have been selling so well I`ve had to make more! Hooray!!

I`m loving the mix of gorgeous silks with vintage tartans.

Katie has definately helped with sales as she looks so great while modelling one!

I`m growing my hair a little longer again so I can wear it up and pop a little fascinator in at will!

A visit to Miss Katie Cupcake is definately advised just now as she has recently got lots more lovely stock in and her beautiful shop is absolutely crammed with gorgeous goodies. The fascinators are £24.

New Fascinators.

These cute little fascinators are made with a trio of recycled fabrics plus some veiling for added quirky glamour.

I`ve finished them with a vintage button and a tiny cameo button. I found the cameo buttons in a craft shop and couldn`t resist them. I think they give just the right vintagey touch to the fascinators.

These two are made with vintage tartans topped with some lovely Loire silk furnishing fabric recycled from a sample book. I only have a tiny piece of each colour, just enough to make each fascinator unique.

The little fascinators are now available in Miss Katie Cupcake, Cockburn Street, Edinburgh.
