I love... ornithology!

I simply couldn't resist this fabric, designed by... Edwyn Collins, from Orange Juice! 

In 2005 Edwyn suffered a severe cerebral haemorrhage that he took six months to recover from. As part of his rehabilitation he drew a bird a day, each of which has been used by the Liberty Fabrics Team in this remarkable print. The design created pays homage to Collins’ dedication, like a sketchbook on fabric complete with names of birds and dates when they were drawn.

Button pins set...

There are coming up in my shops, and aren't they good stocking stuffers? Talking of which, I've started making stockings... and hope to finish these soon!

A thrilling etsy purchase!

A little before my birthday I purchased this vintage watch from a very friendly seller, Sharon from DeliciousBling on etsy. I didn't really know what to really expect, as not all my online purchases were a success... Sometimes you open a package and feel a bit ... disappointed. But on this occasion, my jaws dropped... in delight! I'm so thrilled with this purchase, and now I can be on time too!
