Cover that Kindle

Practicing my ruffles on this Kindle cover for my lovely neighbour.

And also sewing a straight line which seems to elude me...


Shop Update

Over the next couple of days I will be stocking up our Folksy shop with some lovely new bags and other goodies...

Stella has been a busy girl making these gorgeous bags which are all reversible!


Upcycling 2011

We have been 'upcycling' Cath Kidston tea towels and here are the results!
Laura, Florence Hope's resident model, wears hers when making lovely cup cakes:)


A Rare Night Out for Florence Hope

Last night Florence Hope came out to play – oh yes, we attended a small but very beautiful craft fair.
Our hostess made everyone feel extremely welcome opening up her beautiful home; while people walked around the various stands mulled wine was served and the cutest little mince pies.
We were in the dining room so our table was half of a lovely old oak table and with the wood panelling which surrounded us it seemed the perfect foil to show off Florence Hope at its best.

Apologies for the poor photo….but you can just see Stella doing some last minute arranging.
A big thank you to everyone who came to say hello.


A rare gem -
