Hi everyone, here is my latest progress on Mirabilia Royal Holiday.
I have stitched her face and a little more on the next part of her cape, she is looking quite pretty, just need to get some beads stitched to her crown and she will look amazing!
I have also been designing some more digital christmas gift tags in a traditional red and white colour theme, if you pop back to my blog on Friday they will be available as a freebie.
Until next time........

Ever since I started blogging I have picked up a very bad habit, well it is a bad habit for me and now drives me crazy, the absolute inability to resist starting too many projects at once, trust me, I never did this before, I only ever did one project at a time!

Hi Everyone, I am currently signed up for a mini quilt swap from Cherylls Blog over at Gone Stitching here this is the mini quilt I sent to my partner Sue over at The Jersey Scrapper Blog here

Hi everyone, this is my Freebie Friday post a few days late, I could not get access to my blog last week, hence the reason for the delay.
I have been making some shrink plastic gift tags for part of a mini swap, I then decided to wrap them in a small gift bag and designed this gift tag topper to finish off.
The tags can be downloaded for free, just right click and save to your computer, print off and fold on the white line and staple to your cellophane bags at the top.
In my next post I will show how I made the cute gift tags using shrink plastic, I can't show them now because it will spoil the surprise for my partner in the mini swap.
Edited : You can now see the tutorial for the shrink plastic gift tags in my next post here
Update re Mother's accident.
Thankyou so much for all of the kind comments left for Mother, they were all really appreciated.
She is finally coming home on Wednesday of this week, yay!!! We were quite worried at one point but she is now on the mend. Mother is camera shy but here is a photo of her fractured wrist including bruises! She is temporarily walking with a frame until her hip is properly mended and there will be carers looking after her for 6 weeks but at least she is coming home, which I am truly relieved about.
I have just sent a mini quilt for the mini swap,I am also working on a stitchery design at the moment to make a framed picture and I have been crocheting some squares for my first crochet cushion which should be finished soon.
until next time!

Hi everyone, thankyou so much for the lovely comments given to my Mother following her hip and wrist fracture, I passed them on and she cried when she read them, she says to pass on her heartfelt thanks to everyone for their kind words.

Remember these photos when Mum was crafting? Well on Tuesday morning Mum and I went shopping, we were just leaving a store and she fell over with an almighty bang which resulted in a fractured hip and right wrist, she has had to have a hip replacement, her wrist is in plaster and she keeps fainting every time the nurses try to get her moving. We are all quite worried but I am sure with the fantastic nursing care she is receiving I am sure she will eventually be on her feet again.
So nothing to show you at the moment, I have managed to do a bit of crochet but I tend not to function very well when I am worried.
Hopefully Mum will soon be better and things will be back to normal.
Until next time.........

It's freebie friday again!
I have made these Hand Made Gift Tags just for you to print, just punch a small hole in the top and thread ribbon or string and you are ready to attach them to your gifts.
I think you should be able to cut them out with a 2" punch.
Until next time - Happy Stitching!

I thought it was about time I showed you more of my craft room as I know you have only seen one side of it, also mum visited recently and she showed me how to make beautful cards, I have made some in the past but really it is my mum that is the card maker in our family. We had three full days of card making, all we did was eat and craft all day long, it was wonderful!

I have now moved away from my blue stitching for the moment and concentrated on a bit of red stitching, I designed this pretty little bag including the cross stitch design which is available as a freebie, I showed a sneak peak last week.I then decided to make a necklace with a mini sewing machine, so here it is!
