Biscornu Pincushions

I have had a busy week but have managed to fit in a bit of creativity - I have been making a few Biscornu Pincushions this week  (available in my Etsy shop)

Why Biscornu? 

Have you ever had a moment when your OH has completely forgotten to buy anything for his Mum's Birthday?  Well this happened to me last week and i was looking in my craft supplies and looking on the Internet to see what i could make for her.....  She loves sewing and i thought that a Pincushion would be a lovely gift - i then remembered getting a craft newsletter through email for the Biscornu Pincushions and thought that it would be a perfect present. 

Anyway... I loved how quick they make up and the endless possibilities for patterns and thought they would be a wonderful addition to my shop.

Baby Shower Gift Solution

Hi,  I was asked the other day for a custom listing from a lady that ordered a baby blanket, actually it was the one i featured in an earlier Blog posting.  The custom listing was for a beenie, booties and mittens in the same colours to match the blanket.

I am not sure why i had not thought of selling these before!

So... here i am writing this blog to let you all know that the Newborn Gift Set, that is perfect for any Baby Shower gift, is now available to buy in my Etsy shop.
