A couple of Sock Friends

I made a couple of sock friends today. The first one was a sock monster called "Freddie" who loves to party with his mates (see below)
This sock friend was made especially for my DD as she came home with this pair of socks and asked for a friend. She has named her Monkey "Cosy" as it is extra snuggly!

They decided to hang out and watch the world go by before my old shelf gets sold on Ebay!!!

Hoping to add a few more to my shop soon!!

A Busy Day

After waiting in all day for this to arrive, it has taken me about 3 hours to get it built!!
I saw this in a local shop, all made, but it was in Walnut and a bit tatty!! I did a search and found
it on addtions direct and I promptly ordered this one and a bigger one! This one has arrived but the bigger one is not coming until a later date!
It has a runner and a front shelf and a back shelf and I am trying to get my house sorted out and have some sort of filing system.

Making the bigger one is going to fun......NOT!!!

I also made these Birthday invitations for my Mum's 70th Birthday in January. She is sending them out with her Christmas cards and wanted them done quite early!

Hope she likes them!!

Need to make some commission work for glass hanging decorations and also some sock aliens that have been requested!!

Button Brooches

Originally uploaded by Glamglass
Well I finally got round to buying a big shot machine as I have been wanting something to cut fabric for ages! I went and got the daisies die cutter today!
Here are the results of my first effort. They are a combination of felt and material and all have a button centre.

I am really happy with the results :-)
What do you think?
