How to get 15 minutes peace, confessions of a summer parent

I know what it's like two weeks into the Summer holidays and you've exhausted all your ideas of how to keep the kids entertained for free and you just want 15 minutes peace!

Mocktail Bar for Kids

I recently got offered the chance to take part in Robinsons Enjoy more Water challenge. As a mum of two I know how hard it can be to get children to drink enough water, especially in the Summer holidays when the weather is warmer and they are so busy playing. They can easily become dehydrated.

Hedgehog designs and patterns

Things have gone a little bit prickly around Craft with Cartwright towers recently. I have been invaded by cute little snuffly creatures. This week I have been mainly drawing and sewing Hedgehogs. Rarely seen around our parts these days, they remain a fond childhood memory and I love to draw the little critters.

Transport Redbubble collection

 As a mother of boys I am always looking for things to decorate their rooms that appeal to their interests and my sense of style. Posters are O.K, but soon end up falling off the wall and getting dog eared. So the perfect solution for me is a framed Art print. What could be nicer than this busy seas print for a toddlers room?

Free cross stitch pattern, country traffic

Here's a set of cute vehicle motifs. Perfect for adding to birthday cards or sewing on a car play mat. They are only small and can easily be adapted to suit colour preferences. I titled these country traffic as I'm often caught behind caravans, trailers and horseboxes!

Free Father's day blackwork card pattern

I know it may seem a little early to be sharing this pattern, but Blackwork, if you haven't already tried it can be quite time consuming. So I've given you lots of time to stitch the beauty up for your Dad.

Free cross stitch pattern, star flower

 It's been a while since I posted a free pattern. I've been busy doing jobs that earn money, as I can't support myself on my creativity alone. Shame.
So feeling in the Summery mood, I thought I'd share this pretty flower design. I called it a star flower but I'm sure it has a better name botanically.

Spoonflower daily favourites

Well, I can't believe it really. Two days in a row, one of my designs have been featured in Spoonflower's daily favourites. I'm so chuffed, as I got a sale straight off the back of yesterdays feature.
Spoonflower is such a great market place for different, distinct and quirky fabric designs. Don't just stop by my shop (although please do!), take a look at what everyone else has to offer. There are fabrics to suit everyone and every occasion.
