clever sticks

a few weeks ago one of my customers - val heslin sent me an email with these lovely pictures attached. val is based in norfolk and buys fabric from me for making beautiful cushions for various norfolf interiors stores. she is an incredibly talented maker who can turn her hand to anything - as these gorgeous Easter bunnies show. Val sells them for £19.95 plus p&p.

Lovely Kirsty Elson who writes the very popular blog sixtyone A
started me off on this talented reader thing, when she bought some spotty linen and enclosed a beautiful card with a cheque, it took me a second to notice that the birds and cage are made from my fabrics - i had a proud mother type moment!! kirsty sell her wares which we have featured here before on folksy and not on the high street. I covert the driftwood boats and think i will buy one for mr C's room when he is out of his cot and in a bed.

Becky from vintage fairy tales in sweden won our cupcake competition. She is not only a talented artist but she also has a garden to covet, and shares my passion for the bright and cheery zinnia - in fact I am taking Beclys advice this summer and i am going to grow mine in a big tub in the hope that this year they won't be a sluggy banquet!

talented tracy who lives in the far north of scotland, is a fellow notonthehighstreet seller.
she recently won our birthday giveaway and i am ashamed to say with the bag hell I still haven't finished putting the parcel together (though it is nearly done).

i love these pears they are simple but really elegant. Tracy is a multitalented crafter who can knit, sew and crochet - as well as looking after a veritable menagerie!

tracy writes a lovely blog cupcakesathome and her on line shop is cupcakes direct .
if you are a talented reader send us some pictures of your creations.
