Floral this, doily that.

Over the past few weeks I've been making bits and pieces at my own leisure.  It seems I have a little catching up to do on my blog since I have been unwell this past week!!  Around two months ago I had fun making a couple of pretty headbands for myself, which you can read about here and here

I love doilies, so thought it would be worth trying to create something for my hair using them.  This is what I came up with. 


I absolutely love it, but know doilies aren't for everyone.  Which is why I was SUPER surprised when I wore it to church one week and I lost count how many compliments I got about it.  I was super excited!  This of course got me thinking about the possibilities of doily headbands.  Here is what I've come up with so far.




I'm working towards popping them in my shop in the next day or so.

And while we're on the subject of doilies...  remember this table runner?


It's making it's way into the shop too!!  I'm excited!!

And last but not least.  My new favourite fabric flower!  I have been making a couple more out of gorgeous vintage fabrics and am undecided whether to make these two hair clips or brooches.  What do you think?



This one I made into a brooch and absolutely adore.  It's made from a gorgeous soft grey velvet and musk pink corduroy.  I LOVE it!!  I'll be popping it into the shop soon also.


So what have you all been up to this past week?  I am on holidays next week and SO looking forward to being able to spend more time in my 'quaint' craft room!  Hope everyone is avoiding the horrible colds, flu's and tummy bugs going around, and staying WARM!!!  Brrrr!!!
