A special order quilt

Eeeeek my busy life again has come between myself and the blog AGAIN(which I hate).
I need to share something absolutely beautiful with you today.

I have a couple of images of a special order quilt I did for a lovely customer, Dimity. Her daughter Sienna was born premature & is still in NCIU, but the good news she is getting stronger.

This was her very special message to me .

Thank you soooo very much for the AMAZING quilt you made for our tiny princess in ICN / NICU.. It's just absolutely adorable!! Our 22month old daughter Mia, thought it was so pretty,, she wanted to keep it:) so it's definately a hit!
Sienna had heart surgery yesterday and is on a special theatre cot bed under special lights, and with loads of support / tubes attached.. So I haven't been able to place it with her.. But as soon as she is well enough to be transferred back into the humidy crib, I will take a picture of it for you.
Kindest regards and loads of loving thanks
Dimity x

I love what I do & makes every hour I spend worth it.

Here are some images of the quilt sent by Dimity, and how it is being used currently in NCIU.
My heart fills with warmth look at them.

A great way to end my week.
bring on the weekend. I hope its fabulous for you.

New Designs

After weeks of work its time to start loading some new products to my stores. I love this part, taking photos and the editing. I make no claim at being a great photographer or editor, AT ALL. What I have learnt is like so much of my artwork back ground is, "trial, error and determation". 
Thats it, oh and did I mention a few tanty's inbetween especially when I cant get it right haha!

So here we go...

Rainbows Unicorn personalised cushion

Blue Sausage Dog and owl personalised cushion

Elephant and Hot Air balloon - girls

Elephant and Hot Air balloon - boys

Choo Choo Train personalised Cushion

I still have quite a lot of work to post which is coming through slowly.
You can buy any of the designs in my etsy and madeit stores.

Creating tiny artwork for new necklaces coming soon!

I am still working away on my newest collection for Quirky and Quaint, which is due out March 1st.
I am having a new product made which will be converted into glass magnets & also necklaces for both BOYS and girls. I am really looking forward to have these complete. I have someone making them for me, and she does a brilliant job & I feel lucky to be putting our resources together.

I had to create a collage of designs 2.5cm in size for her so she could print them off, cut up and stick them perfectly to glass. They will be then created in to magnets so they can be inter changed into pendants. I will be sure to be clearer when I actually have images.

I have decided on square for the boys that will sit on gun metal grey pendants and chain.
For the girls I want round pendants and bright silver.

It was hard to select what I will use for boys as they are challenging at the best of times. I cant make them too cute, or use anything licensed. I dont feel like having the pants sued off me! All of the images are mine & have been rehashed to accomodate a tiny 2.5cm square.

Here are the designs I will be using for the boys.

Here are the round girls designs, I have to admite they are so much easier to design for. I think the colours will be great on bright silver hard wear.

 To be honest I am loving them so much I will most likely sell them via my Tiges and Weince shop!
I am having a sample made over the weekend so stay tuned for a few photos.
