2nd post in a day!

Wow - i'm on fire today!

I've spent the whole day crafting, and creating items for my stall. I had to email the organisers you see, and forward photographs of my stock so they can decide whether I can be put onto the list to be able to apply for a stall.
One of my items, is mug cosies. I love this idea, but I couldnt find a pattern for any that I really loved. So I just came up with my own....
What do you think?

I just made up the daisy as I went along, and I think it turned out ok?! 
I only made the first one this afternoon, and i've already had orders for 3 more! Woohoo!

oh and p.s. they put me on the mailing list! :-)


I am applying to have my own stall at a local craft market. It's held every other month in a local pub/music venue and its always packed! It's very popular with students and 'alternative' types, so I hope my stuff goes down well!
Here is something I have been working on over the weekend.... While I was in Nottingham on Saturday I visited The Bead Shop for some Swarovski gems and AppliGlue as I have had an idea for some necklaces....
What do you think?

 The cupcakes themselves are made from mini hama beads, and then the Swarovski gems are used as sprinkles, and on the cherry. I used 2mm and 3mm gems. 
The photos don't do the gems justice - they are so so so sparkly in real life!! I made one for myself and put lots of gems on, so its really glitzy ha ha :-)
I will be showing you another item I am making for my stall soon! In the meantime, my copy of Twinkie Chan's book arrived on Saturday, so i'm busy deciding which scarf to make first!! :-)

Sneak Peek!

These two pictures are sneak peeks at what I am currently working on! I'm not going to disclose anything else yet, but when I am ready, I will have something hopefully very exciting to share with you all!

One more picture.... This is something I have been working on, here and there, for the last few weeks.....

My granny stripe blanket has begun!! The picture isnt great, because its in artificial light, and I took it on my iphone, but still, you get the idea! woohoo!!
