My friend and neighbour Clare Render turns 40 tomorrow. She is a twin and is having a party with her sister Rachel in her home town of Liverpool. Unfortunately we cant make it, so I have made Clare a funky badge to wear at her party. I hope she likes it.

I have had a busy week working on three different commissions. The christening garland, a Jack Russell badge for my friend Judys'neice and a garland for a new baby called Poppy. I have enjoyed custom making these items. As you can see the babys name lent itself easily to a floral design.

My friends Claire and Steve asked me to make a garland for their neice who is to be christened at the weekend. Her name is Phoebe which means the sun, so I decided a sunflower theme would be fitting.I have used almost completely pure wool felt and a few pearl beads. My friend Angela has asked me to make a similar garland for her friends new baby called Poppy.

My neighbours and dog walking friends Kate and Mark became the proud parents of twins a couple of weeks ago. I decided to make them some bunting to decorate the nursery. I recycled some terry towling nappies, a little unusual and it has taken me a while to decide if it was any good. I have embelished each flag with a pastel coloured heart shaped button. I neglected to take a decent picture of it when I hung it up temporarily, and had begun ironing it and neatly folding it before I remembered I should probably take a photo. Oh well. So heres a small snap to give you an idea of what it looks like.
