Presents for you (and me)

The creative buzz continues and I have been making house-warming and birthday presents. 

I spent a wonderful afternoon with an old friend at a pottery painting cafe- drinking tea and catching up on gossip. I have a real weakness for pottery painting cafes- I would go all the time if I could and this place in West Hampstead is one of the best I have been to:
This time I painted a Teapot for my friends Hazel & Chris who have just moved in together (they nearly just got some flowers as I was rather pleased with the way it turned out!) and a little sushi dish for me.

A Novel...
...TEA item
Sushi dish with cross-section of beaver dam and most excellent pun.

On my sewing machine I have been stitching up a storm making some vintage kimono bunting for another dear friend's birthday - the perfect present to make sure everyday is a parade-

and a matching laptop and cable bag for me! (Ok so I only have a cable bag because I didn't follow the golden rule of measure twice, cut once... a lesson for us all?) 

I am in love with this fabric. You will be seeing a lot more of this...

Lovely bright orange and soft grey felt to protect my new shiney

If you see anything you like then don't forget to ask me for a commission!

  1. I love your tea pot. I've never heard of a pottery painting cafe before - it certainly sounds more fun than my local costa! Hope all of your lucky friends like their gifts. Anna x
