The love of notecards

Before I declare my love, a quick round up of some of the things I've made during November:

Retro Flower Quilt, Vintage sewing pouch, Christmas table cloth, vintage embroidery, Kids 'Good' reward chart, donkey basket, Starry Starry notebook cover, Bienvenue Bebe Quilt.

I also made some Rose Star blocks and blocks for the How Far Will You Go? QAL.

All in all a great month, I imagine December will be a little less productive as I am getting more and more tired - also it really is hard to sit still for too long so can only manage bits of sewing here and there. I do have one quilt I want finished before Christmas though and a couple of little projects in the works but we'll see - comfort is the key in these last few weeks of pregnancy!

Linking up to Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day

Lily's Quilts

Now I have to share...

I have discovered the most wonderful Etsy shop! It is called Made In Pixieland and I came across it when I was searching for reasonable priced cute notecards because I can never have too many of those.

I struck gold - Claire is so talented, she draws the most adorable pictures and she designs prints and cards and other gorgeousness. She uses 100% recycled card and paper, as well as vegetable based inks.

pixies, mushrooms, a bunny and yellow envelopes!
Even the curved corners of these cards make me happy!

My order arrived quick time and I have already placed another, that's how much I love the quality and the whimsical nature of the cards made me smile so much.

adorable note cards. And what's that peeking out?...
the cutest little stamp stickers!!

I'm happy to support a small business in the UK, I'm happy she has 'green' credentials but mostly I can't help just fall in love with her characters and vintage style.

I highly recommend a fun trip to Pixieland and I know I'm saving for one of those ballerina baubles and
a delightful print.


p.s. just to clarify - I don't know Claire, she did not ask me to write anything, I genuinely just love her products and there is no commission involved Susan ;) but I do hope you'll all support her!

p.p.s. Those fruit loop muffins did not go well the other day. Not sure what I did wrong but I will be making courgette muffins this weekend - yummy and I'm sure a bit healthier.


  1. Thanks so much for the heads up on the notecards. They are amazing! And so are all your makes for the month! Wow! I adore your sewing machine pouch.

  2. Gorgeous sewing and love the note cards. Off to investigate. Hope you are on commission! ;-)

  3. Great work Lucy! So many beautiful things! You have earned a rest - hope you get one!

  4. Such lovely things this month! I love the Rewards chart, it's a lovely idea :D If you run out of energy to make more badges, you could always use scout or guide ones! Hope you have a happy and restful December.
