New Name and New Look – Dragonfly Dreams

After much deliberation I have decided to change the name of my soap business. The name Udderly Divine just wasn’t giving me the look and image I am now looking for so I have changed it to Dragonfly Dreams. Why this name I hear you ponder? Well, when we were on holiday down near Hereford a couple of weeks ago we met a beautiful dragonfly whilst we were just coming back onto the campsite and as plain as day Dragonfly Dreams popped into my head – maybe my angel whispered, well shouted to me  that this was to be the new name so Dragonfly Dreams it is.

I have a new logo and a new look to my soaps, well not the actual soap more the packaging.

So here is a sneak preview of my new packaging. I have yet to build a new website but I do have the domain name as a

The WOTs on Day Release - Festival of Quilts 2009

On Saturday I went with my friends – The Wots,  stands for the Witches of  Telford – to the NEC in Birmingham to The Festival of Quilts. I haven’t been to a quilt show for 3 years so it was a real treat for me to get back into it. There were some stunning pieces of art and some not so stunning pieces. Some were just pretty quilts and some were making statements, political or otherwise. I didn’t buy a catalogue so I have no idea which quilt belongs to what person/s but I thought you may enjoy seeing these works of art.

Credit goes to all those who entered and made a fabulous show.

In no particular order are some and I mean some of the quilts that were exhibited. My batteries died on my camera so I could have taken about as many again.

There are waaaaay too many pictures to put them all on my blog so please go and look at the album.

And just in case you may be wondering what WOT am I, I am WOT the hell!

I have been a little slack in my blogging just lately but just because I haven’t posted anything doesn’t mean I have been idle. I have made a few hearts for my craft stand in September and I have also become addicted to making little posies. I have made just one or two and have discovered that you can make them in any fabric, any size and they look great. I have even turned one into a hair slide for my granddaughter who thinks it’s ace. Aren’t granddaughters just brill?

They look fab made with Broderie Anglais lace as well. I’ll post some more piccies later as I have a chocolate fudge cake to make first. Sigh! Dirty job but somebody’s got to do it.

My Heart Belongs To……..?

Over the last week or so I have been busy making a few things for my craft stall, some things are working out OK and some aren’t but these I am pretty pleased with. This is just a very small selection of  some hearts that I have been making. What do you think?
