Well I have been sewing madly for a while to complete a custom order. (thanks Sandy x). As they wont show up on my etsy mini I have put them in my flickr account.

As I have said previously, I do not make the exact same bag twice but for anyone looking for ideas for their own bespoke bag, previous work is always useful.

Tomorrow I will start work on a new line for all you doggie people out there. Watch this space folks.

New Look

What do you think of the new look to the blog. New layout and a great new banner designed for me by `keutipie` - a fellow etsian.

Been busy sewing today, working on a custom order. Still a few to go. Actually, I have had one of those very satisfying days really, despite having a migraine attack in Tescos, which I find most unnerving.
Bought some new fish for my aquarium and seemed to aquire one more than I asked for. The chap must have liked me. Or just couldnt count as my son put it. Kids!

Also bought some cute little books on etsy, heres a link. I think theses are brill.

Etsy sellers

Phew a whole week has gone since my last post! I am glad to say the weather has heard my pleas and perked up.

Enough about the weather. Onto the post topic. I have decided to feature some of the etsy sellers I have found on my travels each week.

This week I have found a fab UK seller (had to start with a fellow Brit sorry).

Check out her unique jewellery.

Next up, bearing in mind its still a bit on the nippy side, LOOK at theses. they look so cosy, another Uk seller.

Next up I just adore these baby shoes from a seller in Israel. Dont know anyone expecting sadly but I am sure someone reading this will.

Why Is February so Horrid?!!!!?

I do not like February. Sounds a bit gloomy I know, but seriously guys ...........its pants isnt it? Its still bloomin cold. The sun has forgotten we exist and we are all still so very skint from Christmas. For me its kinda hectic ( and expensive). I counted 8 birthdays this month! I am not sure I can cope. To top it all my daughters 18th is one of them. So Happy Birthday love if you read this ( thats a big if!!!!!!!!!!!!, like an 18 year old is gonna read this rubbish).

I really cant wait for the summer now. I hate winter clothes and am starting to get urges to buy new sandals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Must be mad. Also I get to indulge in my other passion, which is tropical gardening. Still deciding whether to put that on here or go for another blog on that theme. Any thoughts would be welcome. Though it has to be said that my garden is a tad compact and not sure I could write too much. Hang on though, this is me we are talking about, I can spout on for hours. Just ask the eye rolling husband.

Maybe next week will be better. Its half term. I hope to get lots of sewing done as well as a garden tidy up. Oh and some sitting down with hot tea for once.
