New Craft For My Shop

Hello everyone. Hope you are all well.

I've been incredibly busy recently. On Saturday I had a stall at a local craft fair so I was preparing for that all last week. We didn't get many people come through the doors but it was an enjoyable day nonetheless. I sold a few pieces and had lots of lovely comments which is always nice.

I've also been working on some other things, which brings me to the main point of this blog.
New Line of Products

I can now announce that I will be adding ribbonwork flowers to my Etsy shop.

I picked up a gorgeous craft book a while ago and was immediately inspired to have a go at some of the creations. I then quickly moved on to trying my own ideas. When I haven't been tatting, this is what I've been doing. I'm now hooked!

Sneak peek of some of the creations:
The picture above shows a blue fantasy knotted flower hair clip. I'm thinking of trying this in different colours. Below is a slightly different version with one layer. I used a cute black ribbon with silver spots. This would look great with a punky outfit.

This lilac and white pansy hair clip was one of my first finished pieces. It's so cute. Watch this space for a gothic version.

I've made this red and gold piece into a hair barrette. This is great for parties or proms.

I will launch this product line on Thursday 1st September in my Etsy shop.

If you have any colours you'd like to see, feel free to comment below this post with your suggestion.

Have a nice day,

Wedding lace and Artfire

Hello everyone. First of all I'd like to say that my heart goes out to anyone affected by the riots happening in London and other areas of the country. I hope this stop soon. Stay safe wherever you are xxx

I've been hard at work on some new pieces of tatting. If you are following me on twitter or Facebook, you'll know that one of these creations is a white Celtic bridal cuff

This is how much I'd completed the other day. It's taking ages as I'm working with four shuttles simultaneously but I'll get there. Hope it looks good when it's finished.


I've also been working on my colour scheme on Artfire using their new design. Have a look here.

There are new listings on there too:

This one sold recently on Etsy and now has a home on Artfire. Click the picture to take you to the listing.

This is a lovely variegated pink star charm pendant. Perfect as a gift or as a treat for yourself.

This bookmark was a custom order and it is now available for anyone to buy here. I've also added customizable listings: one colour, two colours and variegated colours.

I will be listing more pieces on Artfire very soon.

Back from holiday

Hi everyone. Just a quick post to say I'm back from my holiday feeling refreshed and ready to get back to working on my tatting shops.

My family and I decided to visit Shropshire this year. It's a lovely part of England with lots of history. I will do a blog post about this soon with lots of pictures.

Yesterday I started working on some new ideas and I hope to show you the results in the next few days.

Have a nice day,
