Christmas Wants

Dear Santa,

I have tried to be very good this year, I haven't spent too much money on crafts or homewares (well, not all of it, anyway), and I've eaten lots of vegetables. I really, really hope you agree, and can find the following in your sack for little old me:

A new Cath Kidston carry-all bag to take my lunch / magazine / book / crochet to work in, as the one I got free with Easy Living magazine has met a sad end.

The delicious patchwork-style quilt from Toast, which would look absolutely yummy on our bed.
A divine velvet tunic, also from Toast.
The wonderful two-tone brogues from Kate Kanzier. Lovely!

Almost everything from Zara. Beautiful clothes that could well have been made just for me and my style.

Thank you very much, in advance.

Yours Festively, Vicky x

More Arts, Less Crafts

As well as my current crochet projects, I've also been working on some arty pieces lately. I'm not too sure what to do with them now - I think I'm going to make them into cards and then try and peddle them round the local gift shops and galleries. Wish me luck!

Further Adventures of a Fledgling Business

Another lengthy absence here in blogland to apologise for - I've just completed and posted my second crochet order, which has been keeping me busy for the last couple of weeks and away from the keyboard. I've discovered over this time that there is nothing as nerve-wracking as custom orders - will it fit? Will they like it? Will it even arrive safely?! The answer was yes, yes and yes, and thanks to a few well placed photographs on Facebook, I now have orders coming out of my ears.

Drum roll please.... drrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.........

It does help that my friends little girl is utterly adorable, and looks like one of the toddlers from the Boden catalogue, but I have to admit, they do look wonderful! I keep looking at them and finding it hard to believe that I actually made them, and not even from a pattern!

I've also been busy designing a little business-card-type-thing that I pop in with all my orders before I post them, which should hopefully direct everybody here to my little slice of blog-world!
