Waddle it be?

It has been beautiful summery weather this week which has been so welcome after all the puddles we've been splashing through lately!  But who said that rain can't be inspiring!  I thought you would like to have a little peak at a brand new range of illustrations I am busy working on, there will be Prints, Cards & the cutest Party Set.   So better get back to these new friends so you can meet them as soon as possible!  
* Thank you to Charlotte of Cottontails for the top middle photo of one of her gorgeous ducks!
Thanks for visiting, do waddle back soon!

The Great British Party

Firstly a huge Thank you to everyone for supporting my Fundraising Raffle and the chance to win my one of a kind Bumpkin Bear, Callum.  There is still time until May 25th to join in, click here for details.

Although the weather here of late has not exactly been Spring like the Birds are still very busy in my garden, with Great Tits nesting in the bird box and a constant traffic jam on my bird feeders!  Love this cute little Blue Tit, see he has a little ring on his leg too, they must be monitoring them so I feel very lucky they love my Garden.


Inspired by these feathered friends I have designed this new Great British Range.  Personalised Party Invitations, perfect for Tea Parties, Weddings or the upcoming Queen's Jubilee Celebrations.  Tags perfect for getting creative with, turn them into Gift Tags, Cupcake Toppers, Banners.....  I am over the moon to have the following items featured by the wonderful Kirstie Allsopp on her Handmade Britain Facebook Page.  So if you are new to my Blog, welcome, I always love to meet new friends so do leave a comment.



Great British Bird Embroidery Pattern, created with a wonderful mix of stitches, a really relaxing project to work on with a cup of Tea!  



I now have a question for you all, if I am able to copy this Embroidery and create it into a Paper Print would you be interested in it?  I've had quite a few queries about stitching them and selling them but they take me a long detailed time and I just don't have the time right now to do this alongside my shop orders so I thought this could be a nice addition to my product range... would love your thoughts.  Thanks
