They are now all for sale on Ebay to raise some money for Sue Ryder - so please visit ebay and type "sueryder" in the search button. There is some great stuff on here which would make excellent Christmas presents - all handmade, AND you would be helping a charity at the same time.
I am rubbish at adding links to blogs so I've linked to "Cuteables" site (who featured one of my items :-) BIG THANKS!) as they are soooooo much better at it than me!! http://www.cuteable.com/

French, vintage, and gorgousness(!) - all things I love and all combined in some beautiful old Parisian Fashion Magazines from the 1930's, that i recently took possession of - soooooo elegant. No one does it quite like the French do.

Inspired by a day in the garden - I decoupaged some small plain notebooks and made them into Gardeners pocket books. I used vintage seed packs on the top one and garden twine on the other. If you cant live without them, visit my Folksy shop where they are for sale.

Took possession of the FAB vintage sewing machine today! Had to drive 56miles to collect it but it was worth it... and we had to stop in Stamford for lunch (really worth it!). Beautiful market town where the BBC filmed Pride and Prejudice. Mmmmm loverrrrrrrly hand made truffles and the best Latte I have ever tasted! Then we had to stop for cream tea on the way home... it's a hard life!
Sooooooo... watch this space for wonderful, nonsensical,whimsical creations from the Seigfried the Singer sewing machine!

Had fun making button flower brooches (to see how to make your own design go to my folksy page at http://www.folksy.com/shops/anniefloribunda) - Oh, and I made clay and paper beads, (and some other things that I am not quite sure what they are yet)!

I created some pretty flower garlands, using up crisp bright cotton fabric.
These look great in a children's room or outside in the garden - a lovely way to invite Spring into your home!
Really simple to make:You will need an assortment of scrap fabrics, a sheet of iron-on bonding fabric, few buttons/beads & embroidery cotton/twine for stringing.1. Bond the fabric pieces together as per instructions. This way you will have a pattern on both sides of each flower.
2. Cut a flower template from stiff card and draw around it onto the bonded fabric.
3. Cut flower shapes out.
4. Lay the flowers out in desired order and pierce the centre of the first one with the threaded cotton/twine.
5. Add buttons and beads to either side of the flower and knot so that the flower does not slide along the twine.
6. Tie a loop at each end of the garland and hang!
Try some variations on this basic pattern - cut different shapes or sizes of flowers or experiement with different fabrcs and styles.

Found this gorgeous antique lace in a charity shop today and need to find a project to use it in - so delicate - lovely.
