Cobbie’s Corner news.

Well here we are again, already half way through May, were does the time ago!! Its been a busy few months both on the home front and in Cobbie’s corner. Before I go any further, a few new items to show you……

Coasters; £3 each, two for £5.50 or 4 for £10 +postage

These coasters can be personalised and made in fabric colours to suit your decor, they are made from 100% cotton with a heat resistant batting layered between, making them fully washable. Email me with names, base colours etc.

Also new in my shop is this lovely cushion, measuring 12″ x 12″, again in 100% cotton with a duck feather inner cushion pad. These can be made in pink or blue, and for an extra £1 can be personalised with a baby’s name. £12 each plus postage.

These have been proving very popular with four orders in the past few weeks. They are delivered cellophane wrapped and tied with co-ordinating ribbon.

Hand towels make lovely gifts, they can have all sort of designs embroidered on to them, this is a pair I recently did as a housewarming gift. They are also nice for engagements, weddings and a special gift for your young people leaving home to go to Uni in September.

I have lots of suitable designs so email me with your requirements and I will get back to you with design suggestions and a price.







I’m sorry it’s still not possible to order directly from my website but I really do hope to be able to offer this facility soon! In the meantime, email me at and I will get back to you very quickly.

Birthday Celebrations

Away from sewing, I have been celebrating my 70th birthday recently and this went on for several weeks…….starting with my meeting David Essex at a book signing, just a few days before my birthday. Anyone who knows me well will know that he has been my idol since I was about 15!

This was followed by my having a tattoo done, this has been on my bucket list for ages………I now have the prettiest little angel sitting on my right shoulder! We then had a lovely family lunch for my birthday, sadly one of my sisters couldn’t be there as she had been taken ill two days before. There were still twenty five of us for lunch, including my lovely son and daughter-in-law who drove down from Cambridge to be with us. We enjoyed a beautiful birthday cake that my sister had made and Sue at Pipedreams had decorated, which was a lovely surprise as I’m usually the celebration cake maker in the family. Pat had organised this before she was taken ill.

A few days after my birthday OH and I flew off to Las Vegas for a weeks holiday. while we were out there I was able to cross one more thing off of the bucket list….I zip wired down Freemont Street……

As a friend quite rightly said, I’m growing old disgracefully!

The next part of my birthday celebrations was an amazing day at Cowarth Park Spa. This was a gift from my sisters and my niece and great niece.  A truly wonderful day of pampering, relaxation and good food! My niece and great niece joined me for the day and in the evening we met up with OH and had a lovely meal out to round the day off.

All in all I have had a pretty amazing couple of months, I am very lucky to have such an incredibly loving and supportive husband and family….I feel very blessed!

Well I’m signing off now as I’m in the middle of making a handbag out of a beautiful piece of Harris tweed (watch this space) and my sewing room is calling.

Enjoy the bank holiday next weekend, hope the sun shines for all of us.

Happy days!

Jenny xx
