Welcome to the land of Clootielugs where squirrels, rabbits and their like rule the roost. I love to make and sew and find inspiration from many sources although nature in its many forms tends to be the thing that fires my imagination most often!

You can see and purchase many of my creations on Folksy:

Flowers Galore!

I've spotted some brave little snowdrops starting to break through the frozen ground whilst walking Lucy this week and so to celebrate and encourage their efforts I've decided to do a flower feature for my contribution to this weeks Folksy Friday.

I think these would make a cheerful addition to any home, I love the effect of the ribbon yarn petals and the bold shell button centre! They are made by hmsdesign and ffflowers

I love the bold simplicity of this next piece. The wave shape of the glass makes it appear that these poppies are swaying in a warm summer breeze. Beautiful! Made by the aptly named Poppyfields Design !

How about this for a bouquet? Isn't it stunning? Unique and gorgeous it is made by the Felt Florist, have a look in her shop for other wonderful felt florals!!

I had to include these! With their happy smiling faces and cute little flowers they are just adorable! These are made by Pink Stars and Fairy Cakes
If you're after delightful girly creations - then this is the shop you've been looking for!

I love the work of designer Hannah Madden. These are her 'Blue Primula Bundle' of cards, pop over to her shop at Folksy to see her other pretty designs around a nature theme!

Flowers often feature in my own work, usually alongside hills or birds, but in this little aceo I've put them centre-stage! I think they deserve it just for surviving this winter!


  1. Great choices - I've been admiring that piece from Poppyfields, and you ACEO, elsewhere this week! Have a great week-end

  2. Everyone loves to receive flowers. Give loved ones the gift that will last forever and not wilt away in a matter of weeks.

  3. Lovely choices - thank you so much for featuring my flowers :)

    I'm moving my flowers into a new shop on folksy - you will find them at http://ffflowers.folksy.com
