This is my secondary blog and is designed as an archive of my handmade creations, past and present. I also add dates of fairs I'm attending, where I offer for sale my handmade pieces and also carefully sourced vintage goods. I hope you will enjoy taking a look, Niki x

Country Blessings

After making a cushion for our living room from an old men's jumper, I thought I'd use up all the offcuts and make some seasonal country style decorations... 
These pure wool Fairisle hearts are filled with cinnamon, cloves and star anise for festive fragrance...
And come with a rag ribbon hand stamped message fixed with a vintage button. 

They will hang easily from the Christmas tree by their curly wire loop.
There's a little stocking too!

Perfect for those who prefer a natural country look to the usual glitz and sparkle.
The even smaller off-cuts were trimmed into tiny hearts for some one-off greetings cards...
Combined with antique lace and a hand stamped message.

Other pieces made this week include some magic keys for Santa (for those without a chimney on their home!) - Made from antique French keys. 

And a little photo collage...
All are stored away ready for the Winter Wonderland Fair next month.
