Teacher gifts

So my eldest daughter has just completed her second year at school and has had the same teacher two years running, last year she made her teacher a painting on a canvas, but this year i thought something a little more subtle and useful was called for, so having found my inspiration from this lady at lost button studio, although i have to say i struggled somewhat with the flatness of my bookmarks i feel i should maybe have put them under the car tyre and flattened them, well thats what my husband suggested anyway!

Anyway i have decided to not send these as a gift for the teacher but to keep them for myself as they are maybe a little too rustic for a gift and need to be perfected a little first.

Sweet Peas

So its been over a year since ive posted....... how bad is that, there must be a psycological link between here and my creativeness as i havent sewn a sausage since then! I have a list of things that i want to sew but just where to start?
I will try to keep my blog updated now in the hope that it may inspire me to be fruitful in my stitchery.
These beautiful sweet peas are one of my successes of the summer so far.
