im in the big city

I'm back in London for a few days visiting friends and doing some essential shopping... fabric shops watch out I'm coming....(liberty and john lewis i love you) is it wrong to spend birthday vouchers on fabric that i can turn into things that ill sell for more profit ?.. or should i buy pants ?.. but my main reason for coming back to this stupidly busy place is to meet and greet a new box fresh tiny baby, and if course i had to make him some gifts, first a picture for his wall with his name on...
and secondly he needs his own happy accident to play with, so he got an extra special one with a big letter Z on the back,and a few extra ribbons in its hair..

i cant wait to meet him, and ill take some pics of him with his things, hes 2 weeks old now so surely he can sit up and pose with his gifts right...

im very jealous..

don't know if i told you this but years ago i used to own a shop with some friends in central London, it was so exciting and something I'm gagging to do again.. but for now I'm sharing the excitementt of my friend Zoe from love from Hetty and Dave who is about to open her very own shop.. and this pic was taken just as she moved in.. i think it was already there but it so reminds me of my shop as we had one too, it hid our tiny cupboard full of rubbish... every shop should have one....

im getting inked,

isn't that what the cool kids say, inked ?.. well in just over a weeks time im finally getting a long thought about tattoo, i already have one around my wrist, and i have for a long time wanted to add to it, and this picture is just a tiny part of my design, my right arm will never be the same and i cant wait..i will of course blog about it once its all nice and healed... you dont want to see it all bloody and sore do you ?

a cape fit for any super hero

its not just superman who needs a cape, small tiny girls do too, so i made them one.. OK i actually started making these last year and they sold so well in the shop in London where i sell lots of things, that i have started them again now that there is a nip in the air and a few leaves are falling from them there trees.they are roomy enough for arms to freely throw snowballs and will easily fit up to 4-5 yrs.. i love making them so expect to see more here soon.

vintage lovely

i found this lovely fabric in the bottom of a box at the local car boot sale, and i just knew someone could give it a better life so i rescued it and it's now in stevensstuff, its 70 inches long and 47 inches wide, I'm not sure what kind of fabric it is but it has a glossy shiny textured feel and it's in prefect condition.
i didn't know what i could do with it, i have kept a tiny bit, enough for a cushion maybe, but i wonder what someone else will use it for..

all for darcy

so a few weeks back now my friends had a baby and named her Darcy bloom,cool name or what. (i wish i had a middle name) and she lives many thousands of miles away and technically in the future, all the way over in New Zealand.. and i made her a quilt/blanket thingy, can i call it a quilt if it has no actual quilting on ?..anyway i loved making it and heard today that they did too, so i can finally show it here.. maybe i should make these to sell... what you think ?
