Crafty Sunday #4 & Sunday Stash #53

Due to work commitments I didn't get the chance to post last week for either Crafty Sunday or the Sunday Stash. I had every intention of making a last minute post late on Sunday evening when I got in, but had had such a busy day all I was fit for was bed!!

Well I'm in a similar prediciment this week as I've just got in from working last night and am working again tonight. So I've decided to delay going to bed and post now incase I don't get the chance later!

So first up is Crafty Sunday #4:

This week I've had a fairly productive week with two of these been the main product, see my post here.
I also want to show you the handmade element of the parcel I sent to Maryannlucy for the 'Good Enough To Eat' swap last week. I couldn't enter them for Crafty Sunday the week they were made as clearly she hadn't received them yet!

I appliqued a store bought pot holder and tea towel with huge cupcakes and I also made a coffee cozy that snuggles round your take out coffee, protecting you from burnt hands, you can see this on the top right of the photo just above a cute hand sewn needlecase I made that has a donought on the front! I've also made the hand made element of the 'Fabric Addict' swap this week which again will be shown at a later date so as not to spoil the surprise for Bluberry Heart, who I'm partnered with.

Now onto Sunday Stash #53::

Well if you've read my blog this week you'll know I've had a little splurge on fabric. (Tee hee hee!) So here's a couple of shots of my yummy scrummy purchases, click here to find out what they all are.

Well thats all for now as I'm way too tired and could end up waffling big time. Believe me it's not a pretty sight. This weeks to do list looks like this:: finish bridesmaids dresses, finish apron for the Great Apron Swap 2010, finish 'Little Miss H's' ragdoll. Wish me luck!


  1. That doll fabric is fabulous. And those things you made for your swap partner are gorgeous too.

  2. Hello! I'm your boudoir swap partner! nice to meet you. I'm off to work now so will have to catch up with your lovely blog tomorrow. Looking forward to our swap! Bettyx

    I think the bodice looks beautiful. It looks like there is elastic in the straps, what a good idea for little girls.
