A fresh look

What do you you like my new blog look, I LOVE it! It's been designed by the very talented Kathy from Modern Polka Dots on Etsy and now brings into line my Website, my Etsy Shop and my Blog, please do let me know what you think.

On the home front, I had grand plans for this week, however all best laid plans..... Jamie went back to school on Monday, but after a nice walk home and tea, started to flag and said his head hurt. By 8pm he had a raging temperature, which continued through the night. He spent all day Tuesday camped out on the sofa watching tv and Wednesday playing lego, with the odd 'lets see how your head is' restricted session on the computer playing his new Star Wars game that he got for his birthday. By Thursday he seemed back on top form so I sent him back to school........ how bad did I feel when school phoned for me to come and collect him mid afternoon and even worse the fact that I had gone down town, the first time all week and had forgotten my phone. Thankfully Grandpa was at home and went on the mercy dash to school. As soon as Jamie got home, he fell asleep on the sofa, woke briefly asking to go to bed and then slept deeply until 4 am! Anyway thankfully the horrible bug is on it's way out and he is returning to normal. There is a God though and Poppy hasn't caught it, although I've been fighting a bad head for days....... only 1 more week until Andy gets back hooray!!!!

On the sewing front, I have some gorgeous new Buntings going into the Etsy shop, his just some of them

Rosebuds, an oh so pretty Bunting in pink, pink and a little more pink

Nautical, a classic combination of Red, White and Blue


Blossoms, a stunning and dramatic Bunting in Black and Hot Pink

And here are just some of the Custom Orders that have been sent on their way, lovingly wrapped in tissue paper and tied up with string

Sherbert Pips and Tutti Fruity Vintage Fabric Bunting

Hand Appliqued Nautical Bunting

and Pretty Tilda

Thank you so much to my lovely customers for allowing me to do what I really do love what I do.....Sewing !!

Finally, I've nearly reached some major milestones, I'm nearly at 300 Sales on Etsy and nearly at 100 Likes on Facebook. SO when I get there, I think it will be time for another
