Notes From My Days

Thank you so much for all your lovely and encouraging comments on my bunting, they mean so much for little olde butter fingers. I really am not a natural maker, though methinks I am getting better. I am enjoying making my pretties and I am so spurned on by your wonderful comments :)

So much so that I didn't want to pack my crafts back into my vintage suitcase. I wanted to make a little something else, and what a good excuse as we had a little birthday present to buy for a little male friend of Big Sister. Well why buy when I can make, so here is the mini cushion we made for the 2 year old special little man. I love the retro cowboy material and it is backed in a lovely Ikea red gingham. I filled with a little of my lovely Lavender from my mother's garden in Wales, so hopefully he shall sleep like a baby.

Are we all enjoying our new look CK magazine, Mmmmm

Here is what I am loving. Textured rose blue cotton bag.

Affordable china.

I love their little spray flowers beaded food cover.

Gorgeous rolls of prettiness and now you can buy from 50 cm.

Mmmm how sweet shall Big sister and Little Man look.

As for my wish list.

A gorgeous and pretty Daisy crepe mini dress.

And my special favorite, a wonderfully gorgeous Sprig stone fitted trenchcoat.

I would love to know what is on your CK Wish List.

Thank you so much to all of you who have left wonderful comments for my Giveaway Good Luck :)



  1. I've still not had my catalogue yet! Wonder if it is ever going to come! Gorgeous cushion Mary, you are very talented :) I have tagged you but don't worry as I see you have already done it!! X

  2. How can you say you're not a natural crafter. That cushion is fab, love it. I'm sure the little man it's been made for will love it too.
    Big hugs

  6. I've been oogling over the CK cat too. Theres some lovely stuff. Love the cushion you made. xxx

  7. I wish you had chosen me for the photo tag, for my 4th folder 4th photo is genuinely hilarious!
    It made me laugh anyway, maybe the tag will work its way to me, I do hope so.

    Yes I have the CK 'magazine!'
    They sell the craft fabrics in John Lewis, so no p&p expense. they are pretty but a little watered down CK and not very wide.

  14. I spent yesterday looking at my catalogue and dreaming ... I would love the white dress with lilac sprigs and the blue bag with boats on it. Have a good Sunday

  15. What lovely bits and pieces!! How did I not know that there is a CK magazine??? Right ... will be back in a bit with my CK wish list!!!

    Hope you have had a lovely weekend ... I'm in Wales staying with some friends (who are all in bed with sore heads!) and am desperately missing my knitting and sewing machine!!


  16. Your bunting and the little cushion are lovely. I've packed away my creativity at the moment. I bought a sewing machine a year ago, but I have used it very little so far. Thank you for the scans of CK new mag. I love it!

  17. Oh I'm so jealous my catalogue hasn't arrived yet!!!!

    Victoria xx

  18. Thank you so much for the tag - it made me laugh when I found the photo. Just about to post about it now!
    The catalogue looks scrummy, but mine's not arrived. Hope it does soon, or I'll have to give them a ring!
