New Soap Labels

I have been very lucky to have some new soap labels designed for me. Here’s a sneaky peek at them.

I have just had the finished labels delivered and will post some photos of the boxed and labelled soap soon.

A Hunting We Will Go!

Well, it’s the start of the hunting season again and this morning I went to see the North Shropshire Hunt meet for the first time at Sansaw Hall which is just across the road from me. It was an incredible experience and here are a few photos of the morning. Enjoy! I even managed a small glass of port and ginger and a small piece of rich fruit cake. Moss, my collie, was an absolute star, he wasn’t fazed by all the horses or the fox hounds, who I must say are sooooo friendly and love doggy snogs and cuddles.

Please click on the link to view the full album. And just in case you are wondering about the guy in a kilt on his horse, he is Scottish and was wearing it to raise money for MacMillan nurses – a very worthy cause. I wonder if he was wearing anything underneath it??????? Could be rather painful methinks. :-/

Playpen Creations

As I mentioned in my last post I’ve started making a few Chrimbo pressies and am enjoying every moment of fabric choppy, sew it back togetherness.

I have made 2 place mats for my dad and stepmom. They lay the breakfast table everyday so they are for the festive breakfast table.

I’m making a series/set of cushions for my eldest son and daughter in law using cream and blacks with pinky,peachy, salmony fabric. Very graphic and modern.

Here’s a few sneaky teasy pictures for you to look at.DSCF7470

The fabric is by Moda and is designed by a designer called Sweetwater.

Depending on how this turns out I may or may not post a finished picture but I think it’s going to work out OK, it’s a cross between graphic funky and feminine. Oops poor Robert. :-)

More Musings from a Wannabee Hippy

I can’t believe it’s been over 2 months since I last updated my blog. Doesn’t time just fly by? I can’t believe in just over two months I shall be …. well let’s just say if anybody gets me a subscription to the SAGA magazine they’ll get thumped big time :-)

My little grand daughter is now smiling and cooing and blowing baby bubbles as they do.


My son absolutely adores his “Little Princess” as does her mom, Anne. She’s growing really quickly as babies are want to do and this grandma is currently plotting what Santa is going to be bringing her for Christmas.

Talking of Christmas I have been making a few Chrimbo pressies as I just love to make things for my friends and family.

Robert and Anne have a gorgeous bright salmon pink leather suite and wanted some cushions to go with it so I have been making some using black, cream and pinky peachy salmony coloured fabric. I am rather pleased with how it’s looking at the moment.
