Buttons, glorious buttons

I’ve been loving making these button charm bracelets lately, it’s colour therapy at its best. Picking out combinations of sizes, shapes and hues is one of my favourite makes at the moment.


They’ve been listed over at my Etsy shop and I can’t wait to make more. I think my personal favourite is the ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ yellow bracelet (front left) it gets me in the mood for spring time and on a rainy, dull day like today it is much needed.

Look what Nanna knits!

Had a lovely, lovely day today. Started with a visit from my dear Nanna. She brought with her what is possibly the best present I have ever received!

nannas tea cosy

A KNITTED TEA COSY! isn’t it just FABULOUS! (The photo isn’t the greatest as I was in such a rush to share this with you!)

It has elastic around the base to keep its shape,  holes for the spout and handle and a very VERY cute drawstring top. It was knitted from a 1950’s pattern that Nanna found in amongst her pile of patterns. Nanna is currently knitting away to fulfil family requests. I’m trying to encourage her to get them online and share her knitting with the world. It’d only be fair, wouldn’t it.


Kirsty of Paperfish on Etsy has launched her own online shop. includes lots of her much loved lines such as Pin Pots, Needle books and ooodles of glorious, superb quality buttons.

What I love most about is the ideas and inspiration page. It is filled with ideas on how you can use the supplies available on the site to create your own handmade projects.


My favourite project has to be the Log Cabin Cushions


Such a fab way of combining all of your fabric remnants.

I ordered my items on Thursday and they arrived by Saturday! Super speedy delivery!

I shall be visiting again very soon and urge you to do the same.
