Works in Progress

Things have been a little quiet on the blogging front and that's because I have been busy starting a million and one projects and finishing none! But then this blog isn't just about showing you all the lovely edited crafty goodies, it's also about the disasters along the way.

For the moment I am putting together a new window for the shop which has been spurred on by ceramic cake stands I had ordered for a customer. She had wanted to paint them as a thank you gift for her mum and future mother-in-law.  When they came in they look fab, so i immediately decided to have a new summer tea party themed window. So i abandoned whatever else I was working on and started crocheting some cute cupcakes for the stand which are now complete! et voila:

However I am feeling I need some woolly cherry bakewells and battenburgs which I cannot find patterns for! So have resorted to making it up myself so no photos yet. Also plan on knitting a retro inspired tea cosy, so many ideas! so little time as always.

I also made these fabric flower corsages from my scrap box, a mammoth box I am working hard to try and reduce but no sooner do use up a load more fabric seems to find its way into the box. hmm och well. I seem to be having an obsession with fabric scraps at the moment, I can't bear to throw anything out but at the same time it does seem to be overtaking a little. More on that laters.

The never-ending scrap box - project ideas??

The window is half complete so hopefully we shall have some photos soon of scrumptious cakes and nostalgic tea cosies. Also have been scouring for more ideas for things to do with the scraps but that's the next chapter.

And finally as promised photies of the jubilee crafting, I didnt take as many as I thought I would but the ones I did look amazing. Dont you think these ladies look fab??
