This fine example of the Crabbittz breed is called Hannlore, she likes Astronomy and Poirot re-runs and some how by some miracle she's made it all the way into the folksy shop!Find her here if you want a tad more info on her.
This picture shows how much of a mess the desk gets into when we have to make jewllery...jars of buttons everywhere!
These guys are also up in the folksy shop. They are called Fat Bears and we think they are the cutest thing to come out of StuffedNonsense for a while.
The new dust bunny Christmas decorations, i was hoping to list these this afternoon but the pictures i have just aren't up to scratch so they will have to wait a little bit....but what do you think? good or bad?, yay or nay?
These are mini button wreath decorations...which are really hard to photo...we came up with these to help overcome the increasing population of white shirt buttons at the shop, they are just a metal ring packed full of white buttons with a few coloured ones thrown in for good measure, they have a pretty ribbon loop to hang from your tree...would you hang one in your tree??

And then i picked out one lucky winner.....
Congratulations Beth from The Linen Cat....I'm rather chuffed that it was this lovely lady that won because i have followed her blog from the beginning of my blogging adventure, and every time she makes something i fall a little bit in love with which ever item she's made. Please go and have a look at her blog because the things she makes are truly wondrous!.
Right, i shall return tomorrow with pictures of the result of all of the manic sewing i have been doing.

Isn't it wonderful?? To some it may seem like a horribly tacky old tea trolley, but to me it is a wonderful retro solution to the impending storage crisis about to arise with the on set of frantic Christmas sewing. You see my sewing desk was getting to be a mess with various projects awaiting completion, but with this wheeled wonder i can carefully stack the half finished projects into neat piles and kid myself that by shifting them around and neatly stacking them i am actually getting closer to completing them.Also my jars of buttons and knitting needles look cute on top....i wish i could crochet...if i could i would make some of these like the talented Tif...
Another 'essential' purchase on this recuperative trip to the charity shop (i was sick at the weekend) was this lovely tartan coat...
Well...i was supposed to start work on the dustbunnies at 12...and its rather past that now!

A fantastic old Kodak Camera with the orignal case.
A grumpy looking owl money box which i find appealing despite it looking quite naff....but in a good way.

We will leave the give away open until next Thursday and then we will pick a name out of the hat (if there's anyone who enters!) You can get another entry if you blog about it too, just head back here and let us know that you've done it...make sense??
Right....onto the Crabbittz....
And here they are all together...in a crinkle....which is definitely the scientific name for a group of Crabbittz....FACT.
Sooo, there you go, hopefully some peeps will enter and then we can send out a package of wonderfulness to one lucky StuffedNonsense fan (said package will include a Crabbittz...of course)

Lots & Lots & Lots of Jewellery...We found the plastic vintage animal tokens in a charity shop a few days back, but its taken us a while to get cracking on them. I'm a little bit taken with the bird ones. We also made some more scrabble necklaces and earrings and also some vintage button bracelets.They are all to go to MADE Cirencester so we couldn't put them out on the shop so we decorated one of our shelves with them.
Then i played around with some manila gift tags and came up with some new packaging ideas.
Lots of the Jewellery is now up on the folksy shop...i think that's a good few days work...don't you?

Then i got distracted by the washing line of Crabbittz and felt that they had to be photographed...After the 'urgent' distraction of a washing line of Crabbittz was dealt with i cut out some lovely belly shaped pieces of fabric...Then i sewed these pretty pieces of fabric onto the grey balls of loveliness in order to make some lovely Warm Thoughts...
Soo cute and soo squishable, they are now (well hopefully will be in the next few days) winging their way to MADE in Cirencester.
It was rather lovely to lose myself in some hand stitching for a few hours.
Next week (Thursday-Sunday) El and I will be at the End Of The Road Festival running more monster making workshops. We're both really excited about it but I'm worried i will be teaching 8 year olds to make monsters when i could be watching this rather wonderful lady sing her rather wonderful songs....fingers crossed hey??
Because of our trip to Dorset the StuffedNonsense will be shut, but do not fear! we will return post haste with lots of new and exciting ideas for you all!

(We also popped into a Charity Book Shop and i was thoroughly tempted by the lovely burgundy book, if only for its title!!)
Well, i really should stop procrastinating and cut some lopsy lapins.
Just so you know the shops going to be shut this Friday (new job getting their heads around my availability, Also on Saturday the shops shut but we will be running a stall at the Brewery in Cheltenham which is about 10 minutes from the shop so you could come and see us there if you want??
Anyway, stay dry!

(We made fifteen in total!)(These three are up for sale on folksy.)Inside each pack is enough monster making supplies to make a rather sweet palm sized monster.There is also a sheet of instructions included with some of El's rather lovely illustrations, we liked the little pictures of monsters soo much we have decided to come up with some stationary sets with them on. What do you think??
Anyway...time to get on with the rest of our Saturday.
