Christmas Orders 2012

My order book for Christmas 2012 will close tomorrow evening 10th December 2012. I will still be taking orders, but cannot guarantee delivery before Christmas.

Wishing you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year. Thank you for your support it has been much appreciated.


It's good to be back

I have almost fully recovered from my recent surgery and I'm looking forward to being able to drive once more. It's so frustrating feeling well and not being allowed to do something!!

I have added a couple of new items to the site today; Memo Boards and Pencil Wraps. I've also added a couple of new Tea Cosies to the range.

I will be making a start on some new Christmas items over the next couple of weeks, so do please check back.

Temporary Closure

Unfortunately, due to requiring surgery, I will temporarily be closing my site from 21st August until 30th September. If there is anything you would like to order before 21st please order sooner rather than later. From 1st October until 31st October I will be open but running at half capacity and hope to be fighting fit and back to fully functioning by 1st November.

Thank you to all my customers for your support,

Little Paxton Scarecrow Festival

I will be at the Little Paxton Scarecrow Festival again this year on 21st May 2011. Hope the rain stays away this year. There will be lots of crafts for you to come and see in the Village Hall, Little Paxton, St Neots, Cambs. As well as lots of events on the sports field; a good family day out for all. Do pop along and say hello.

Diddington Village Craft Fair

I will be at the Diddington Village Craft Fair tomorrow 14th May 2011. If you're in the area do come along and say Hi.

Charity Event

I will be at a Charity Event tomorrow Sun 1st May 2011 raising money for the NSPCC at Central Park Peterborough. Do pop along if you're in the area. Lots of other attractions too.

Site Re-vamp

I have spent the last two days updating and revamping my site. I've added a few new items and i'm particularly excited about the wedding keepsakes. Unfortunately i've had to increase some of my prices but on the plus side i've lowered some P&P prices.

I also have stalls booked at a couple of craft fairs later this year - details will be on the events page. I really enjoy doing them and hope to book some more soon.

It's a busy day today making up orders. Placemats, tea towels (to be added to the site this week) oven gloves and aprons. It's such a joy working with beautiful fabrics.

Craft Fair

I will be at the Christmas Food and Craft Fair this weekend 20/21st November at Wood Green Animal Shelter, London Road, Godmanchester. Do come and say hello :)

Craft Fair

I have been busy making stock to take to the Craft Fair at Wood Green Animal Shelter this weekend. Yesterday it was padded hangers and today it's toddler aprons and door stops. Busy busy times!

If you are looking for unique Christmas gifts then do come along to Wood Green, Godmanchester this weekend, lots of exhibitors inclusing me!

More Christmas

I have been busy sewing Hearts and Stars in Christmas fabrics. They should be available later this week.


Today I will be making Christams Stockings and will have them on the site by this evening.

Craft Fair event

I will be attending the Autumn Craft Fair, at Wood Green Animal Shelter, London Road, Godmanchester, Cambs on 23rd and 24th October 2010. It's my first "major" craft event so if you come along do please come and say hello.


Christmas is approaching fast and I will be adding my Christmas range later this month. New items will include stars and stockings.

I will also be adding new items to my all season range later this month.


After some delay (unexpected holiday!) and redesigning the Toddler Aprons are now available. To ensure a snug fit, the straps cross over the back before tying at the waist. Available in most of the fabrics for £7.00

New Items

Following on from some enquiries at Little Paxton Craft Fair, I am going to make some aprons for toddlers. Hope to have them on the site early next week.



As well as writing a blog on here, I have made a Facebook page for Essentially Country.


Little Paxton Scarecrow Festival and Craft Fair


Had a stall at the Little Paxton Scarecrow Festival and Craft Fair yesterday. Despite the horrid weather there was a good turn out. I managed to sell some handmade aprons, handmade ovengloves and handmade wheat/lavender hotties.
I also met some lovely fellow crafters who shared their wisdom, knowledge and tips. Special thanks to Anna from Urban Ice.
