Things I made for my wedding

I wanted my make my wedding unique, and as I love crafts and making things I wanted to create as much of the stationary as I could myself.  I made all the invitations and have made all my thank you cards too.  I also made the placecards, seating plan and table names which were each named after one of our favourite big cats.  I did a drawing of each cat to go on the table names.







Earrings and a Bracelet

These are some earrings and a bracelet I made while sitting in the sun last weekend in my parents’ garden.  I’m hoping to sell some of them at a car boot sale soon.

Stone Bead Jewellery

I made some jewellery this afternoon using some of the semi-precious stone beads I got for Christmas.  The black, grey and clear necklace is just made with normal glass beads.  I believe the grey beads on the bracelet and the pink coloured beads are both jasper, but obviously the pink ones have been dyed.


Wedding planning is also going well, we have venue, registrar, photographer, car and dj booked.  I’ve started making the invitations, my brother’s girlfriend is going to do my hair for me, and I think I’ve chosen which dress I want.


Firstly some exciting news – I’m now engaged!  So lots of exciting wedding planning coming up!

Secondly here is some of the jewellery I have made.  I have sold several pieces of jewellery now, which I’m really pleased with because it means I can get some more money to buy more beads and jewellery stuff!

Hampshire Cross Stitch Group

Hi everyone, hope you are all well.  I’m looking for a cross stitch group in Hampshire, somewhere in the Southampton/Winchester area.  If there aren’t any then i’d like to set one up, but I need at least a couple of people to help me get started.  So if you’re interested in going to a cross stitch group in Southampton or Winchester please let me know.  I know that there are other similar groups around, like knitting groups, but they tend to either meet in pubs where it is too dark to cross stitch, or during the daytime on a weekday when i’m at work.  I really hope that there are some people out there who’d like to meet up with other cross stitchers around here.

To anyone reading this, welcome to my new blog.  I’ve never had a blog before so i don’t know quite how this will turn out, but i’m hoping to be able to share my artwork and craft with you as i do it, so that you can see the work progressing as well as the finished pieces.  Feel free to comment on any of my future entries.
