I really must think of more exciting titles for my posts but I really can’t think of anything very exciting to call this post. It’s only a very tiny post just to show you my new fridge magnet really that I made for myself.

As my car has been off the road now for nearly 5 weeks I haven’t been able to go anywhere so I’ve spent plenty of time in my ‘Playpen’ creating and making and sewing.
A few years ago I machine embroidered some Autumn outlines I bought but had never gotten round to doing anything with so I designed a quilt especially just so I could use them. Well, as the designs are autumnal I used mostly fabrics from The Crayon Forest range from Moda adding other bits from my stash.
Hope you like it!

Well, as you may well remember a few days ago gave you a few sneaky teasy shots of a cushion I was working on. Well, I have finished it and another cushion in a different design. I think I prefer the second cushion myself but I have had some very pleasing comments about both of them from different peeps. I just hope Anne and Robert like them. :-)
This picture of the cushion is taken before I sewed the binding down so in reality you can only see about 1/4” of red on the outside. The colours aren’t totally accurate on here either.
Recently I have been commissioned by Shropshire Council to produce a range of soaps for them for their retail outlets like Rowley's House, Acton Scott Historic Working Farm and other places. The label has been designed by Mathew Lloyd from Think Graphic in Ludlow. The fern design was inspired by a herbarium specimen collected near Much Wenlock by William Penny Brookes, founding father of the modern Olympian movement, courtesy of Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery.
I hope you like them.
