Singing for Cookies!

Recently my Christmas Card with Ducks singing Carols was spotted by the very talented Paula of  Vanilla Bean Baker.  She was taking part in the fabulous Christmas Card Cookie Project and asked to use my illustration as inspiration.  I was thrilled with the idea and look what she created, isn't it fabulous!  Do check out all the other Cookies in this project, these folks are artists and they have all shown how they made them!  If you fancy trying your hand at cookie decorating there is a tutorial for this cookie on Paula's Blog 




Do you remember these Ducks were inspired by the cheeky ducks from the wonderful toy store Cottontails .  Christmas Card available from my Etsy Shop

I could have done with some ducks to help me with orders lately, although I think elves would be more helpful!  I will be away from my Studio from 29th Nov-5th Dec for family parties back home in the UK.  But any postal orders will be sent out to you wherever you are on Dec 6th.  Embroidery and Ornament PDF Patterns will be sent out as normal via email when I am away, so you can keep stitching all those crafty gifts!  This Bunny will be hanging on lots of trees this year, so cute in your favourite colours.  
"Rabbit's Favourite Outfit" Ornament PDF Pattern available here

Last Postal Dates for Christmas:
Australia & New Zealand - 6 Dec
USA & Canada - 10 Dec
UK/Europe - 12 Dec

I will be back soon with lots of festive photos from my recent London trip and some exciting new projects I can't wait to share. 
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs

Sewing, stitching & playing..

I am over the moon to finally be able to share my brand new "Sew your own Bumpkin Bunny" Craft Kit!  Oh what fun to see my illustration printed on fabric!  These will be perfect for little crafters and adults alike, great to keep occupied and happy over the festive season.


This Bunny is called Berry and she is keeping cosy in her sweet vintage winter outfit.  I have only got a very limited stock of her so if you would like to welcome her into your home to make (& like to bake carrot cake, her favourite) hop over quickly to catch her!



She is available from here in my Etsy Shop

I am so so busy with custom party orders, christmas orders & new product design that I don't know whether I'm coming or going lately!  But wherever I'm going it's fun to be creative.   Talking of new products I must not forget to show you my other exciting products - a Bumpkin Memory Card Game & new Embroidery Pattern!

The Memory Game has 18 pairs of Bumpkin friends to match including previously unseen illustrations!  All held in a handmade illustrated box.  It would be a real treat in a stocking this Christmas, keeping little ones occupied whilst christmas meals are being made!

Available here 

Last but not least to share today is my new "Tea Time Song" Embroidery Pattern with a very merry Robin!  I could just imagine this stitched on all sorts of projects, even a table cloth or napkins for Christmas.  But don't forget Robin's are for life, not just for Christmas ;-)


Available as a PDF Pattern sent straight to your email here 

Right, must dash, there is a To Do List pulling my sleeve for attention!!  I went to London recently and have photos to share soon.  Hugs, Catherine x
