Hand Sewn Hearts

Hello everyone!
I love hand sewing little things out of felt, and my little felt charms are very popular in my shop. So, I have now started listing these on Folksy, so please do take a look! http://www.folksy.com/items/442498-Felt-Button-Heart-Charm?shop=yes
More creations to come soon!

I watched Heston Blumenthal creating his Fairy Tale feast on TV last night - it was fantastical! I love all things Grimm and a little macabre, so I found it very inspiring. I want to go off into the deep, dark woods and see what I can find there......

Looking forward.

Like these little cuties, I am feeling all dressed up and ready to go this week. I have so many things I want to work on though, it is difficult to pick one and just start! So, I decided to start with ordering supplies, and have managed to spend a fortune already and it's only Monday lunchtime - oops!

Anyway, have a lovely day all - if you get chance please check out my Folksy shop as I am listing lots of new loveliness in there.

Bye for now,

Ailsa xx

Happy Sunday!!

Sorry I left you alone for so long, loyal readers of my blog! I have been busy making things as usual, visiting people over Easter, and taking photos of my stuff so I can list them online! I am not a great photographer, and it takes me ages to get a good enough pic to use - I have a new camera though which is helping a little! So, here are a few pics I have just taken:
These lovely creations can be found in my online Folksy shop! www.folksy.com/shops/coucouheart
Speak to you again soon, dear readers! Until then, I must get back to my camera....
