Planning a romantic meal for Valentine's Day ?

If you are, then why not make it extra special and make your own candle wreath holder, felt heart coasters and felt napkin rings ?

If you fancy giving this a go (it's really, really easy !) then you can download a copy of the Tutorials for FREE from our website !

They're on there NOW !!!

The new website is here !

Hurrah !!!

After a very loooooooooong time, our new website is finally here. Well, I say "new website" - to everyone at Blooming Felt Shedquarters it is a "new website". To our customers, it probably looks exactly the same, but look closely felt fans and you'll see some fantastic new features have appeared !

New features like "Create an Account".
"What will happen if I create an account?" I hear you ask. Well, if you create an account with us then you'll be eligible to receive Loyalty Points on all of your Blooming Felt purchases ! And what do Loyalty Points make? They make a nice little stash of money that can be redeemed against future purchases with us ! It's just our way of saying THANK YOU for shopping with us. We really do appreciate it ! Full details of our Loyalty Scheme can be found here

We'll be giving away BONUS Loyalty Points for different occasions. The first will be to anyone who leaves a Product Review for any of our products, and that we publish. Don't forget though, you need to Create an Account to be eligible for Loyalty Points. We cannot, unfortunately, award Loyalty Points retrospectively. You have been warned !

So, "What else is new?" I hear you cry !
Oh, where to start ?!!!
Create an Account with us and you can set up a "Wish List" of all of your favourite Blooming Felt goodies. Store your favs in your wishlist and then, when it's Christmas or birthday or anniversary, or "I'm having a bad day and need to treat myself" or "I'm sorry I'm such a mean person" time, you can give people the link to our website, along with your email address and they can see exactly what's on your wishlist and then buy it for you !!!!! How cool is that ?!!

And if, for whatever reason, they don't look at your wishlist (some men are like that I know), they can always buy you a GIFT VOUCHER !!!!!!!! Or, you can buy someone else a Gift Voucher if you fancy ! We can email you the voucher for you to print out and give in person to the lucky recipient or, you can have it emailed directly to that lucky person by inputting all of their email details, along with a lovely little note from yourself.

If, heaven forbid, something that you want to buy is out of stock (I know, sometimes it happens) then you can click on the "email me when back in stock" link and that's just what we'll do ! You'll get a jaunty little email from us and then you can go spend your hard-earned pennies on the stuff you've been patiently waiting for, and of course, earn LOYALTY POINTS on it.

Now, at Blooming Felt Shedquarters we luuuuurve Craft Books. The problem we have is that there are so many craft books that we love, we just don't have the space to stock them all. The other thing is that Amazon likes to sell all of our favourite craft books at way below the RRP, and at way below what we would be able to sell them for. So, in order to combine our love of craft books with Amazon's super-cheap prices, we have created a Blooming Felt Bookstore !!

Go to the Craft Books section on our website and you'll see all of the recommendations from the Girls here at Blooming Felt. If you want to buy any of those fantastic recommendations, just add them to your shopping cart. NOTE: These books will be added to your AMAZON shopping cart and not your Blooming Felt shopping cart. You can then purchase and pay for your selected books through Amazon, take advantage of their low prices and, in most cases, free shipping direct from Amazon. The other thing you need to be aware of is that sadly, you cannot collect Loyalty Points on Craft Books purchased through Amazon. I mean, come on ... you're getting cheap prices and free shipping !!

More new features will be added to our site on a fairly regular basis and we'll keep you updated as to when these happen. In the meantime, we hope the new features mentioned above will make shopping with us even more exciting ! There might be a few blips in the system to begin with so please bear with us - we'll be keeping a very close eye on the website for any problems and would appreciate your feedback with regards to any problems you do experience, any also any feedback about how the site looks / feels / works.

And finally, something you might want to double check. If you've got us, or any of our products saved in your favourites or bookmarks, please delete them and resave them from our new website. Even though we look pretty much the same, we aren't ! Behind the scenes, elves have been working away and this means that links that were saved previously ie. before 20th January 2012, won't work. So do please clear your caches, browsers, temporary internet files, favourites & bookmarks, of any links to us and then resave them from the new site.

So, I think we've taken up enough of your time reading this - hopefully you're itching to get onto the new site and see what all the excitement is about.

Off you go then .........

I fear ...

I am turning into one of those mad old women who insists on furnishing their home with bright colours, many of which clash. Who wear bright coloured clothes, many of which clash and who just don't really care what other people think of their "style".

I make no apologies for turning into this type of person. Maybe I've always been this type of person but have just reached an age where I have realised that I don't have to be "a dedicated follower of fashion".

After having my inherited chair recovered in a patchwork style

I am now itching to decorate the rest of our living room.

This week I received the latest edition of "Making" magazine. And what an edition it is !! I sat down with a nice cup of tea and my original plan was to just flick through the magazine. But on opening it I became completely engrossed (this doesn't happen with me and magazines very often !) After seeing this ....

I have decided that I MUST get one ! Sadly, the website that sells them has sold out, presumably because it was featured in the magazine. So the hunt is now on for a papier mache deerhead that I can cover in decoupage. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it !

Our living room walls will soon be adorned with embroidery hoops featuring different brightly covered fabrics.

The lampshades also need replacing and I have plans for these, but it may take a while so I'll have to update you on this when it happens.

The furniture also needs replacing and so I shall be scouring salvage yards for individual pieces that can be given a new lease of life ... again, more updates as and when this happens.

So, that's what I shall be doing in my spare (!) time over the next few months.

I saw a sign in a shop the other day that said "forget the rules, if you like it ... buy it"

So that is what I shall do !!
