Recently i have had an influx of sock animal orders. These latest are for a lady at work who wanted 2 for her grandsons. The zebra is for a newborn so i added felt eyes instead of buttons. Zac and Henry are now off to their new home and i have another 3 orders to make up so best get back to my sewing room..

I have been such a bad blogger recently. Its been over 2 weeks since i last posted!!. Unfortunately life has just got in the way. I had a really big agriculutural show a couple of weekends ago so spent ages making things. It was well worth the effort as i sold loads and it was a busy day all round. On top of that i have agreed to stock my handcrafted items at Botany bay in Chorley (if you have never been and are local check it out its 5 floors of shopping heaven!). Last week was the official launch of my items so i seem to have spent every spare minute (in between working full time and managing family life!)sewing,crafting,candlemaking etc. This coupled with 5 orders for sock monkeys from work plus folksy orders has meant i haven't had a minute to enter blog world. Not only have i not been able to post i also haven't been catching up with whatevery one else has been doing!. Anyway i'm back now and promise to get back to my old routine. So to start with i'll share a few of my recent makes...
Stella the sock kitten is really easy to make. The tutorial is here if you want to make one.
Simon the sock monkey. He is now in my folksy shop. if you want to have a go at making one then e-mail me at email@example.com and i'll send you the instructions.
Anyone for tea?
Lili finished school for summer last week so we made some pressies for her teachers. these cookies taste yummy and i love the red polka dot hearts i managed to find to decorate the bags with.
