News on the gift swap.....

The first Mosaic Tree gift swap has now taken place with another crafter from Folksy.

This dark blue mobile phone cover with a deep pink heart detail was chosen and swapped for some lovely jewellery items from MarthaMooBeads.  Both of us were delighted so here's to many more!

Wookey Market - Local Somerset produce and crafts at its best

Wookey Local Produce Market is being held this Saturday 17th September 2011, with the promise of a bumper autumn harvest. Cooks and gardeners will offer tasty homemade cakes, savouries and preserves.

There will be locally grown and harvested autumn fruits and vegetables, Somerset apple juice and honey. Beautiful handmade crafts and cards for all occasions will be available. Refreshments and bacon rolls will be served all morning.

Everyone is welcome to this celebration of the produce and skills of this area. The Market is held in Wookey Church Hall from 9.30am -12noon.  Mosaic Tree will have a stall there and Annie and Maggie will be delighted to see you.  Perfect for a bit of pre Chirstmas shopping!

Room to grow!

Mosaic Tree's range of baby hats are for new born up to 6 months.  However, Annie at Mosaic Tree recently made an exception for a baby who's been modelling Mosaic Tree hats since she was born and, in fact, sported the prototype for all that are now stocked in the online shop

This wee lass has worn and worn the hats until she's out grown them.  She recently celebrated her first birthday and Annie knew that her mother would be delighted if Mosaic Tree could produce something a bit bigger.

Of course, we were more than happy to oblige (Mosaic Tree waves fairygodmother's wand on cue!) and here's what we created.....something that is such a limited edition that its not even in the shop!

We also wanted to make sure that this hat lasts for as long as possible so we introduced the 'double roll' turn up which means that mum can simply unpick the stitches securing the roll and - voila - baby's hat has magically grown by several centimetres, making both mum and baby very happy indeed!
