It has been so nice to be back at my sewing machine this week
I have missed it lately
my back is much better now
thank you for your kindness

So...want to see what I've been up to???

Birdie pocket organiser

Two personalised buntings 
for two little baby girls

a cute owl for Martha

a little butterfly for Eve

and a sweetpea bunting perfect for a new baby

made from thrifted pretties

I have even made my gift this month
I know....even I am shocked!
(you can read about my plans here)
I am very excited about it too
but I will save that for another post
sorry to tease 

!!!! My big brother is home !!!!
Y-I-P-I-D-Y-D-O-O-D-A-A *
It's his birthday today too
we have decided to celebrate properly in a few weeks time
when he is feeling a little better
he is doing well but has a nasty chest infection
He is so happy to be back in his own home though

Thank you so much as always for your gorgeous comments
I just love reading them all
you never fail to make me smile
and a BIG "Hello" to all of my new followers

Happy weekending

  12. Happy Birthday J's big brother!
    Oh! such beautiful things :o)

  13. love your bunting absolutely gorgeous!! and your organizers are soooo cute x

  14. sweet pea is what we called our first born before he was born! He even wore a 'sweet pea' one-piece outfit to his aunt's wedding when he was six months old. If he wasn't going on 13, I'd get him that! Or maybe, that's even more of a reason to! ;)

  15. Hey Jooles, your brother must be so pleased to be back in familiar surroundings...wonderful news and Happy Birthday wishes to him all the way from Australia.

    Love the birdie organiser, what a great way to use those stamps. I have the same set and just love them.

    You have been stitching up a storm and it all looks wonderful ....

    Have a great weekend,

    Claire :}

  16. Wonderful news that your brother is home! And wonderful news that your back is feeling better!!! :-)
    You and your sewing machine have been super-busy! I love all the latest makes - especially the little pocket bunting! What a brilliant idea!!!

  17. Goodness, so much sweet bunting :D I think the sweet pea affair is my favourite, but they are all lovely Jooles, you clever thing!

    Oh, and frabjous day for your brother, I'm so pleased for him, and you x

  18. Hi Jooles, what fab news that your brother is home despite a pesky chest infection - make sure he takes the full course of his Antibiotics, plenty of fluids, encourage coughing and moving around...(Nursey advice over!)
    Your bunting is so gorgeous and make me think about things differently - I always applique plain letters, but floral ones look even better!

  19. Oh my adorable...a countdown to daughter was joking with me the other day and told me we needed a countdown to Valentine's day and I chuckled...but now I am thinking Easter is a good idea. xoxoxo HUGS

  20. These are all beautiful, i adore the pocket organiser with the birds :o) Scarlett x

  21. Wow, lovely blog! What find! All your bunting is very desirable but i particularly love your countdown to Easter, what a nice idea. gillian x

  22. SO glad big brother is on the mend.
    I've had some lovely new visitors over at mine thanks to your valentines post - thanks for sharing the love!
    Wishing you a happy new week - I'm looking forward to getting back to my workshop...fee ♥

  23. Oh my goodness Jooles: there is so much eye candy here I don't know where to begin! I absolutely adore your first birdie organiser; the colours are so pretty. The sweetpea bunting is so ADORABLE! Sigh of pleasure.

    A very happy birthday to your dear brother. I am so glad to read he is on the mend. It will make your celebrations all the more special in a few weeks' time.

    Take care,


  24. You have been busy Jooles, I've been away for a few days and come back to see your lovely posts. Glad to hear your brother is doing well and is home. I've suffered with a bad back for years, so I feel your pain. Loving all your new makes, they are gorgeous xx

  25. I love the bird bunting best. Glad your brother is on the mend.
