                                                               Sale time

It’s that time of year again when I am making lots of new samples so it’s a very busy time for me, I have to move a lot of last years samples to make room so it’s sale time over on ebay so get yourself a bargain, ends today

Just a little up date as to what I have been doing since my last post, it has been a very busy year so have not found time to post much as its been heads down all the time sewing and posting out and then there is the invoicing and end of year accounts, its never ending when you run your own business. :)

Have also started a workshop on Wednesday evening teaching sewing by making a project every week, this is working very well and I'm very impressed with my class, will be showing you each week what we have made which might just give you all some inspiration     


Well Autumn is upon us so time to make a few samples for coming season, this is one little number that gave me great pleasure in making as the colour has turned out very well although it can be made in any combination of colours.

This is a new colour of turquoise added to my
 colour range  very electric 


Although I usually only make for the bridal and dance trade I do make a few items for the family and friends when called upon also a few items from the workshop I hold once a week, below you will find a few of these.

A Baby Girl

I became a grandmother for the 4 th time, my daughter Zoe gave birth on 16th March to a lovely little girl named Polly Jemima weighing in at a nice 6 Ib 15 oz, it will be lovely having a little girl around again, been knitting and sewing ready for her arrival and buying things from Folksy like these things below.

Whats this all about

Well its all about another craft related site called Zibbet recommended to me by a friend, I wandered over to have a look and hope you will too, although it is an U.S. site it is well worth a try as it is FREE, I found it very fresh and the whole site easy to use and has a nice feel about it and its FREE for standard account which you are able to list 25 items and upload 4 photo's, there is a premium account which gives you a few more features but as I am only giving it a try so I will stick with the standard account for now. Try It's FREE Zibbet
