Yarn bombing, yummy yum and yay!

Hello all,

I've been very naughty (tut tut) and haven't blogged for a week, but I'm back - yay!
I recently got a new phone (yay) which I've had to teach mum how to use, I tested out the camera on it when we went to look at a yarn bombing someone had done on the seafront.
(These weren't from my phone.)


We also went shopping and we bought...
(sounds like a game)

...a teacake tin in the shape of a giant teacake!

Yummy :)

We will be at the Wells moat boat race tomorrow so pop down if you can!

I'm just popping over to see the other lovely blogs on handmade Monday...

Parties, Penguins and pottery painting


Yesterday we were at Puriton Party in the Park, a family event with live music that stretches well into the evening with crafts, BBQ and entertainment. It was a good day for In a Pickle as I sold 3 cushions, 2 lots of mini bunting and a bookmark!

Me with Bongo the baby owl!
I had a fab day painting birthday pressies with purr - fect pottery, I painted 2 bowls for my Aunts.
The weather was a bit dull but lots of people turned out.
Today me and Mum went down the seafront and had a look at a few stalls set up, the clouds are starting to disappear and the sun is shining away so I think I'm going to relax now, I was planning to bake but we ran out of eggs. :(

Looking forward to next week as a friend is coming over - I better tidy up!

New Bunting - coming soon!


It's my first Handmade Monday so I'm looking forward to seeing all the other blogs!

Butterfly, butterfly fly away

Mum's been nagging 24/7 lately about making new stock, so I finally got round to making this butterfly bunting. The butterflies are a Michael Miller design and look fab with the spots ( If I say so myself!)

Too cute!
I've also taken some new stock photos of my cushions to add to my Facebook page! Here are a couple.

Summer Holidays!


I've realised I'm half way through the holiday and haven't done as much as I've wanted to. In previous years summer activities were put on hold due to injuries, but this year I planned to make up for this. So far I've:

Visited The Wild Place

Almost There...
Been to Guide Camp:

Been to Nunney Street Fair:


And had the results for my Grade 4 ballet exam - I got a Merit!

But I plan to do so much more - starting with a sleepover - bring on summer!

Ra Ra skirt workshop and lots of lovely fabric!


Today I did the teen skirt making workshop at the gorgeous Millie Moon in Frome!
We made pattern less Ra Ra skirts out of polka dot and plain fabrics.

Making the skirt!

As they were all one size I had to add an extension panel on the top so it didn't look like a frilly belt, but a bit of ribbon and the skirt was perfect.
The finished product!

 I had an amazing time and it was great fun! All the people at Millie Moon are especially lovely and Anna the tutor for today's course was very patient with me when I had to add the panel!

(I was so happy when it was done I secretly did a little dance!)

The shop!
I Just want to say a massive thanks to everyone at Millie Moon for an amazing day!
You can find their website here.
(They have lots of lovely fabrics!)
Keep sewing,

p.s keep your fingers crossed as I get my ballet exam results today!
