Felt flowers and a blog award!

Hello everyone on this lovely day where we had sun and a blue sky (hooray!)

I am only half way through this little felt flower creation... but thought it would be nice to make a little collection of them in different colours and turn them into colourful hanging decorations for a Springy/Easter tree type thing. Feels a bit like making Christmas tree decorations but different :)

On the subject of colour, last weekend I popped into Cath Kidston to have a little nosey at the new bits and pieces on offer and saw this beautiful tapestry cushion (which is also featured in Cath's latest book Stitch!), and yes I know it is a bit pricey for a cushion, but I could not help but completely love it to bits, and it has now also made me want to indulge in a bit of cross stitch - only another thing to add to the million other things I want to do then!!

Pop over to the fabulous blog Faith, Hope and Charity Shopping for a chance to win 'Stitch!' in a giveaway...

Last week Lakota from Faith, Hope and Charity Shopping also awarded me with a Liebster blog award and I was very chuffed and honoured. Thank you very much Lakota!

It is very very difficult to chose only a handful of blogs to pass this on to from the multitude of amazing ones that I already I am awarding this to a few of the fabulous younger blogs that haven't been up and running that long, and definitely deserve a good read!

I hope that you are having good weekends



  1. Oh what a lovely surprise, thank you very much for the blog award! I am so chuffed to receive my very first award! I love your felt flower, such pretty colours. I also have entered Lakota's fab giveaway, I have had my eye on the Stitch book for ages. Bx
