A few wee updates!

Greetings from a super busy medical student!! Sorry I haven't been keeping you up to date! Here's a quick run through of what passed through my crafty fingers recently...

These guys i found over at weewonderfuls who's blog i adore! I had a go at Santa, Mrs Santa and a little green elf. I hope she doesn't mind!! They were shipped off to a few family members with kiddies at Christmas (and a few big kids). I enjoyed making them soo much - especially using glue for once, not sewing every little bit on. Cheating but shh....

I sent quite a few presents off in little bags like this recently too - made out of enveloped would you believe it! Fantastic for my student budget - see how to do it over at HowAboutOrange.
The next photo is a gorgeous french knitted necklace that Tom's Mum made for me for Christmas - isn't it beautiful! A few little buttons sewn on add a nice but of detail and the yarn she used is sooo soft - I love it! The other necklace I found on vintage stall - it's lots of sequins and beads sewn on to what i think is an old dress collar. Really different - everyone always comments! Just thought i'd share with you too...

Ah yes MummySew made me the most amazing tea cosy!!!! Look how fab it is! Completely lined
too. It's made of felted wool and she'd appliqued on lots of adorable little figures - it's the pride of our teapot!!

She also found these amazing books - 'The Screwtape Letters' by C.S.Lewis, 'Vision of Sir Launfal' by James Lowell and 'A Gallery of Children' by A.A.Milne.

How amazing to find books by well known authors - old, well -loved but beautiful! The first it dedicated to J.R.R.Tolkein - imagine that!

On a cutesy note...we decoupaged this little Piggy Bank over christmas - he's just waiting for a big pink nose-button!! The pencil pot is another new love too - Cath Kidston fabric and pink pompoms! What on earth could be better? I hope your New Year is just as colourful and exciting!


  1. What a lovely blog you have. Your blog header is so cute and I really like your pencil topper friends!

  2. Yes - CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien were good buddies and drinking friends, isn't that cool? I am glad you stopped by my blog to enter my OWOH giveaway so I could come by and meet you! Bravo that you have ANY time to create while being a 2nd year med student!
