An even craftier Minx!

One Crafty Minx has had an overhaul. Whaddaya think? Big Minx has shown how clever he is by creating my very own logo which combines two of my great loves - Lurchers (one in particular) and sewing. :-)
And of course whilst he had access to my account, he made other design tweaks and made my blog generally look a bit nicer.

In other news, I finally have my own modern sewing machine!!! I am massively indebted to my lovely friend, Hannah, who has lent me her Bernina for the past 7 months and indeed enabled me to embark on this venture. But I now have my own little Janome beauty to accompany the gorgeous vintage Singer. Here they are nestled together in perfect, racially balanced harmony.

I know it's still almost a month until Christmas but as I've been busy making Christmas pressies and items for the house, I thought I would show you the stockings I've just finished. They were supposed to be rustic although I think that may have gone too far in to the realms of 'made by a 2-year-old. Ah well, hand sewing has never been my strong point. I'm just not precise enough!

  1. LOVE the new logo, it's fantastic. What a clever Big Minx. The stockings are great too - the hand sewing is perfect rustic style. I love it that you made one for Toby! Maybe I should do one for Tango. :)

  2. Thanks Foxy, you're very kind. :-) I'm sure Tango would love one!

  3. Oooh, love the logo - so clever! xx
