Ring Cushion for the Wedding

I decided to make my own cushion for our wedding rings, as I wanted to carry through my wedding colours and the pattern I used on my invitations. I used Sanderson's Dandelions fabric, which I got a sample of through the post from their website.

I think it's very cute, and not at all like other ring cushions which is exactly what I was hoping for...

New Shoes?????

Ahh don'tcha just love the sales, picked up this lovely pair at Monsoon for over half price, and just right for New Years and my Hen do in Feb. Just got to practice walking in them now...

Christmas goodies

Two of my favourite gifts this year, a carved wooden mushroom and a lovely cake stand....

Today I began work on one of my favourite characters from the book

Beaded Headband

Iwanted to make something for myself for the wedding, almost everything at my wedding has been handmade, just not by myself. For my evening look, I wanted a 20's/30's style headband, and found some inspiration from this lady on Etsy... Quirky Beauty

And here are the beginnings of my 'beaded leaf' headband....
