The one where it was very Cloudy

 Oops! I did it again & took a bit of a break from the old blog. Was totally unintentional but once again life is kicking my backside. But enough about that, lets talk about more interesting things.

For a while now I've had an idea about making a felt cloud mobile type of thingymabob. I've seen lots of cloud cushions, mobiles etc around Blogland, & wanted to make my own but just never seemed to get around to it. I've recently introduced my eldest daughter to the world of Kawaii (I'd add a link but am posting from my iPad & haven't figured out how to link from it, any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!). One evening whilst pinning lots of Kawaii images to show my daughter, I had a lightbulb moment & decided to try a Kawaii style cloud. A few days later, I actually had some time to sit down & try it.

In progress.

Ta Dah!!!!!!!!!

One little felt cloud with crocheted rain drops.

& a happy Kawaii style face!!

I posted the above photos on IG & got some brilliant feedback, in fact a few people even requested to buy one.

These three Sweet Dreams Clouds sold straight away!!

& there's a few more waiting to be finished!! I've named them Sweet Dreams Clouds as I'd imagined them hanging above my daughters beds & I've lightly scented them with dried lavender. They measure 17cm x10 cm approx, & I'm selling them for £10.00 each & £3.70 p&p (uk 2nd class recorded), if anyone is interested, please drop me an email at

It's a great feeling knowing others like what you create so much so they want to buy it. I'm definitely one of those people that are super critical of themselves so this has been a massive boost to my confidence! (Don't worry about me getting big headed though, no chance of that!)

So once these clouds have been completed, I've got some more ideas I want to try, the main one being an autumn style garland (autumn is my favourite season), something along these lines:

But bigger, with leaves, acorns, maybe a squirrel or two.

What makes you think of autumn?

Well cloud stuffing (& maybe a bit of crochet) is the plan for today, along with making a big pot of stew. We are having a grey & rainy Sunday here, def a day for staying inside in the warm.

Have a good
