Fancy a Swap?

I'm organizing a Cupcake themed Swap!
Everyone loves Cupcakes, so why not make a normal Swap...
A bit more fun!?
You can include anything that is Cupcake related
Fabric, Soap, Candles, Jewellery, Books etc.
If you can make a Handmade gift aswel that will make the swap extra special :)
The Closing date will be Saturday 20th August, I will announce the Swap partners at 12:00pm

If you would like to join in the Swap, you must be a follower and leave a comment on this post.

Cross Stitch Fever

I've always loved Cross Stitch, but never managed to finish any projects... I got this fantastic book the other day, and have been Cross Stitch crazy ever since! I've never tried lettering before and this was my first attempt...

Country Cross Stitch, 99p on Ebay!
Children's Alphabet Letters
Farmhouse Projects

I was very pleased when i received the book, it has over 500 designs and will definatley keep me busy over the half term!

I also managed to complete my first ever cross stitch in just 3 hours! I buy the CrossStitcher Magazine every month, they have some beautiful little projects for beginners right up to Pro's. I'm just a Beginner at the moment, but i'm sure in time i'll be a pro. I'm currently designing my own Cross Stitch, so keep a look out!

Are any of my lovely followers fellow Cross-Stitch fans? I would love to see your designs and completed pieces!
Hope you've all had a lovely weekend and enjoying your week :)

Love to you all xx

Busy Monday Morning...

It's only 2:00 and i've already managed to stitch together 25 lavender bags...
Make 8 Candles,
Clean the Rabbit out,
Done a load of washing and hung it out to dry,
and prepare lunch...

This is one of the lavender bags
Pretty tea-cup candle

Fudge was happy with a nice clean cage, she enjoyed a run around in the living room while i cleaned her out. Finlay has been asleep for last 2 hours, and she doesn't get a good chance to stretch her legs while Finlay is awake. It's ends up a game of hide and seek!
Isn't she a little beauty?

One happy Rabbit :)

Hello Mr Postman :)

I've been waiting for a certain parcel to arrive through my door...
And today it came :)

Absolutely scrumptious Lemon Meringue Wax Melts :)

I can't believe how delicious they smell, almost good enough to eat! Even the Postman asked what they were, he said he'd been smelling the parcel all the way down the road, which made me chuckle :)
Thankyou very much KandiPandi I will definatley  be returning to your shop very soon!

And another parcel came yesterday...

This was my fabulous Giveaway prize from Swirlyarts :)
It contains lots of different sewing and crochet patterns and designs. Really looking forward to getting my head stuck in and having a read, I will be making the Baby Sampler soon as my friend is expecting a little girl so that was an extra bonus getting that one!
Hope your all having a lovely day, any plans for the weekend?
Love to you all, Jodi xx
