Round up for the last week

Hi Guys

Sorry I have been out of circulation a tinsy bit.

I have been busy with deadlines and still am so I will post when I can.

What news, well my cafetiere cosies are now appearing in a local coffee shop in the town that I live in.  I am so happy about this and fingers crossed they take off locally!

Mandi from Designbirdie designed my packaging and I am so happy with the end result.  The tan colour is for the medium sized cosy and the purple topped packet is for the small cosy.  Thank you Mandi!

You might see one of the mini cosies (the black chicken on red) in the left han side of the photo?  See the ribbon hanging down?  Well that was a suggestion that my hubby made which was to show the customer what is inside the cosy i.e. the insulated wadding.  Great idea D, thanks!!

So what else, well I finished two cot bed quilts for two little Caoimhe's!

The photos might be a bit fuzzy but it hasn't stopped raining here today so apologies for the quality.

I used KONA white (as usual) and "Children at Play" by Sarah Jane Studios for Michael Miller.

I love this fabric, it really reminds you of what childhood should be, you know, carefree, fun, playing and pink!

Then the other quilt was made using K white and Alexander Henry Starling in Pink and Alexander Henry Willow Wren in green.

That's it for the moment, at least that I am blogging about!

Hope you have a good week and look forward to catching up on your blogs!

In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.

You need to change your settings and input your email address so that I can reply. There are blogs that walk you through the process but fear not it is not hard to do!
