A Productive Couple of Days

Well its been half term this week and the weather has been predicably damp! In between cleaning like a thing possessed because we are selling our house I have managed to create some new designs ready to go in my etsy shop. I have conquered my zipper fear and am truly unstoppable now, um well until I bugger one up, and then I will get so disheartened.
Here are the new arrivals.

My creative juices are on overdrive at the moment, which is probably why I am drafting this post at 01.39! Somebody has asked for a zebra print bag with some specific criteria, and now all I see when I close my eyes is black and white stripes. There are 3 potential designs floating around in the grey matter. If I have enough fabric, I will probably do them all and let her choose. The others will go into the shop. Watch this space.
Also my thoughts are on small local craft fairs. I thought now would be a good time to give that a try. The large ones are so expensive I dont know how anyone other than the organisers ever break even, let alone make a profit. So we all have to start somewhere. If there are any organisers of suitale events in Norfolk reading please drop me a line. I would love to here more.

I am still Alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have neglected my little blog lately, life has that habit of just getting in the way dont you you think. The cushions are still not done, the sofa is still not here and thankfully, the old one has not sold yet - phew! If it had, we would all have numb bums!!!!!

Look at these lovely shots we took on a day out to Fritton Lake. A nice day if a little chilly still. The first picnic of the year though. Always good. :)

Just made, after a spell of non stitching (flipping life again) a larger basket style. Like this one a lot. One for all the poppy lovers I am told are out there.
