Project Complete

I realised I hadn't shown any pictures for a while of the Peter Rabbit quilts we were making. Well last Thursday, I finished not only the cross-stitches but the quilts too. Then I heard next morning that my friend's waters had broken on Thursday night - the exact night I finished. The babies were born at 35 weeks, so good thing we had them finished "early".

I made one of these for my oldest niece when she was born. That one I made in yellow and green. This time I decided to do two different shades of brown. In the end, I decided I liked the brown better.

I'm glad to be finished, though I did enjoy making them. Now I am directing all my attention to sewing for my upcoming markets on the 11th and 18th of December. More details in a couple of days. Hope you can come and visit me there. I'd love to see you.

So, what do you think??

I'm Turning Two!!!

Craftycrackpot is turning two today (well on etsy at least), and I'm celebrating by offering 10% off all stock on both etsy and madeit until the 30th of November. Also, if you spend over $30 (not including postage), I will send you a $5 gift voucher for your next purchase.

You can either buy and then I'll refund through paypal, or you can let me know what you would like to buy, and I'll change the price of the listings for you. 

I've had a lot of fun with craftycrackpot. The first year I felt like I was just becoming accustomed to it and learning lots about taking photos, tagging items, etc. Within the last 6 months though, I feel like I know what I'm doing, and hopefully I'll see sales picking up too. I'm still learning, but I can definitely see a difference from when I first started.

Birthdays are fun!! :)

This week I found lots of pretty hair clips. There is a large range on madeit, and they're all so cute! They would make a great stocking stuffer or even just a small present.

Have fun looking!
