A change of stitch....

I fancied a little change from the norm this weekend and had some spare fabric leftover from my stall so I hunted out an Etsy email that popped up a few weeks ago and gave it a try.

The video tutorial made a bit more sense to me than the written version, but it was sooo easy!

I made my very own skirt! and it works and everything :)

If you can stitch in a straight line then I recommend giving this a go, I think my winter wardrobe may have a few of these :)

Brunswick Festival 2011...

Stamp And Stitch had such a brilliant weekend!

I was getting a bit nervous to hold my own stall for the first time and I've been working so hard to get everything ready but it was so worth it.

The sun was shining all weekend and we had the nicest comments and customers.

It was so nice to be right outside our pad too, it made the tea and biscuit runs pretty easy :)

Thanks to everyone who came along to support us and thank you to all my new lovely customers!

In the pink....

Things at S&S HQ have been very pink of late.....not a problem for me :)

I've been getting quite a through custom orders through for my bunting and bunting cards, this is one of my favourites....

I've got a two day stall at this years Brunswick festival which is now in less than three weeks! Eeeek! panic stations. I've been snipping, stitching and printing like a mad thing, theres bows and bunting everywhere, but I need more!! As soon as I'm home from the 9-5 I'm straight down to work, these next few weeks are going to be pretty full on but I'm really excited about my first stall :)

I finally got my hands on these beauties!! Mr P saw them posted on Facebook a while back and I've been stalking the Vans shop and Schuh ever since, they finally arrived last week and I practically ran to Schuh after work; shoes and Hello Kitty?!........I'm in heaven :)

I've been wanting to make these for ageeees! and then I saw that a lovely blog I follow (LittlePeaches) made a big rainbow cake so I had to get going on these rainbow vanilla cupcakes, so pretty and sooo yummy...nom nom nom

Right I'm off back to the work station.....any elves out there fancy a job before the xmas rush?
