Button Brooches

I thought I would share with you my new brooch design. I have had these two large buttons for about a year now, knowing that I loved them, but still unsure what to do with them. And although this design is simple, I love it! I have now ordered some more of the large buttons in various colours, and then I will be uploading some of these beauties into my shop.

Baby Blanket

So, eventually after much falling out with my sewing machine (including lots of growls and 'stupid Bernina's) I have finished the baby blanket I have made for my niece is currently cooking, ready to make her appearance in December!

Obviously, I thought I would share this new make with the world!

Sunshine & Weddings!

Well I return at last after a lovely few weeks of holidays! First we were lucky enough to spend 11 days at my Aunts villa in Gozo, just off Malta which was just beautiful.

Driving from the airpot in Malta I was too impressed with the scenery, however after catching a ferry over the tiny Gozo island, I found the place to be a lovely place. Gozo is made up of lots of litle villages, each village has a square at its centre, and being a very catholic country on each square is a church, usually quite large and impressive!

This is the largest church we found, in a tiny village!

We also took a lovely boat ride, visiting the Blue Lagoon, visited Popeyes Village over in Malta (where the 1980 film was set), saw the Azure window, and attended one the villages Festa's (a celebration of their Saint).

We took the boat ride sitting on the front - the best views!

So a lovely time was had by all! I then had the joy of returning home for the grand total of around 40 hours, before taking the long drive from Cheshire to Kent with my Mum for my cousins wedding.

Me all dressed up and ready to go...

So all in all, a good few weeks have been had. Although there's always something nice about coming home after being away for a while...
