Sewing pretty things!

A weekend of crafty business was had here at La petite chouette. I have a mother who is very very talented, she does all sorts of crafts crochet, knitting but her real talent lies in her embroidery skills. I get her to embroider pieces of fabric so I can make pretty dresses for my dolls. Everyone she finishes is differet to the previous one. This particular one went into my Etsy store and was snaffled up immediately...........I am glad there is other ladies out there that love my mums work as much as I do!!

You can see her tea cosies at her shop Teapot Rosie  and here is a few more of her creations.

Live, love, create!



Well the time has flown since my last post here and let me tell you there has been many a thing going on. I won't bore you with all the details they are not so interesting but I will tell you about a little postcard swap I signed up for at the end of last month. It is called The great big stitched postcard swap. I haven't done anything like this for a longtime and thought it would be fun, simple and alittle different to my usual sewing swaps. It involves creating a postcard, incorporate the theme create, use some paper and do a little sewing.....how hard could that be? 


 Voila here it is...............live, love, create!!  I hope my swap partner likes what she sees when she sees it  and I can't wait to receive mine in my letterbox.

Pop over to the blog Do what you love! or the FB page that has put this swap together, it is a very creative, inpiring blog to read with oh so much stuff going on.
