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:

Royal Wedding Essentials!

Here comes the bride - well after all the build-up, let's hope so!
I've gathered together some lovely Folksy items you will need to see you through the big day..

First of all you'll need to decorate yourself appropriate to the day ahead - I love these little brooches by Landbaby - they're cute enough to make any day special!

If you prefer wristwear I doubt you'll find anything better for today, or more patriotic, than this fantastic cuff from Jezebel Charms

"But what about the kids?" I hear you cry? There are plenty of girly accessories out there so I thought I'd hunt around for something for the boys and found this AMAZING tank-top at O'Hara Design's shop! Isn't it adorable?

Now for some all important room decorations - far too pretty to be used for one day and put away - surely this bunting by redneedle sewing is the perfect excuse to make this summer one long garden party!

To make certain you don't miss a thing, you'll need this gorgeous cosy from Uniquely Yours to ensure your cuppa stays nice and warm for the maximum time! It comes with a matching coaster for the excellent price of £6.50!

Oh! and you'll need your tissues to hand and after all that decorating you don't want ugly sniffle catchers spoiling all your hardwork! This sweet little cover will make sure your tissues are discreet and stylish! Beautifully made by Moody Cow Designs- it's another Folksy bargain!

Unfortunately washing up will be an intrinsic part of the day so why not make it as fun an activity as possible? This tea-towel by Jillty Drawings will certainly guarantee that - or if you can't bear to sully such a perfect design why not have it framed, it would make a fab artwork for the kitchen, don't you think?

There! Now you're all ready, so put your feet up and enjoy the spectacle!
