The Fairy Shoemaker

Faerysteps started a blog way back when the internet was practically pedal powered (that was in 2008). These days I tend to use Instagram as a daily record but sometimes you just can't beat a good old fashioned diary entry...

Childhood Summer revisited...


Straight back to age 6 when the great drought of 1976 happened...


The grass is tinder dry and we are rather feared of fire. Fires in various parts of the country already :( so we are being extra vigilant.


Late evening trip down to the river to swim. Well... they did, I didnt... Im a terrible wuss about water ;) 


Youngest had little fish nibbling her toes which was tickly....

Naughty sewing machines and new stock...


JINKS belt pouches in the making. Appliqué placement completed, ready for stitching.


Out of chaos, emerged ISOLDE. Lots of lovely clutch purses getting ready for their applique stitching.


Reggie and I had to have ‘firm’ words about tension and suchlike this afternoon! No place for yumpy tension in my workroom… Reggie apoligised profusely and asked to have the rest of the afternoon...

Stitching magic again...


I cant tell you how much Ive enjoyed making accessories again after such a long break. Its wonderful to work alongside my Husband on these as well :) Keeps both of our sewing machines busy.


There will be lots of these being made over the coming months so do look out for many more.


I thought a little working shot from my studio was in order. Stitching in the sunshine as we have...

Sparks and Smiles...


Been so busy.


And it shows...


Because my worktable is full to overflowing...


Of treasures...


Ive had so much fun since Christmas!


More treasures to follow :)
