The Wedding - Part 4 - The Cake and Dessert Buffet

Here is my older sister's (The Baker) dessert buffet and wedding cake. It was spectacular and the best bit was everything was delicious. The Baker sourced the ever so cute cake topper from Megan from Melabo a lovely crafter on etsy.

The Wedding - Part 3 - The Table Decorations and Bridesmaids

The little birds were all handmade by my nieces, the bride and myself. They were so cute and people took them as keepsakes. The kitty bridesmaids outfits were designed by the bride. She's a clever one and made sure all the kitties behaved themselves.

The Wedding - Part 2 - The Invite

My little sister 'The Mogul' got married on Sunday. Here are the invites I did for her. They came in a pink envelope with a black wax seal. As you will see pink is her colour de jour. Her wedding was absolutely beautiful and so was she.

More Scoop Bags

Here are some scoop bags I've been making lately. I love them. I haven't decided what patchy combo to make for myself. Lots of people turned up for The Olive Tree Market this weekend, despite it raining from 11am through to 2pm and being a long weekend. Thank you everyone who showed up to support the handmade loveliness on offer.

I was discussing with one of my crafty mates how lovely it is when people tell you the stories behind items they have purchased off us. Some of the stories are funny, sad, happy, but always heartwarming stories about how much they love our stuff. Although it feels like I'm chained to the sewing machine and print table it is the joy that my items bring to people that makes my crazy crafting all worthwhile. My most special story is of a woman who bought her daughter a handmade doll from me. When she visited her grandma, who had dementia, her daughter took the doll with her. Her grandma loved the doll so much the woman came back the next month to buy her a doll. She told me her grandmother was a seamstress when she was young and she just loved the heavily patterned doll and cradled the doll like it was a child. It gave the woman alot of comfort knowing her grandma treasured and loved the doll.
