Summers here

And I am going to foreign climes, typical. I am happy nonetheless as I am not at work. Felt strange the first day, like I missed it. The offspring are bored which is a bummer because there is not much to do here and the other half has my car as the fuel economy is better on mine. Damn his impractical car purchases and damn the bloody oil companies. Went for a fruitless walk to find the shop in the next village yesterday. I know where it is, just did not want to walkup the busy B1113. It was a lovely day for it so all was not lost. We have car today, yay.
I have the trusty sewing machine back and have produced some bags for some custom requests. Just need postie to bring me the handles and I will post some pics.
Oh, I found my daughters blog today - its ok folks I did not wince. She actually spins a good text.

New Items in Shop

Before the machine went to visit my parents, I ran these up. I am so pleased with the lilac one. I went out for plain linings and this fabric just screamed "buy me!!!!!". I resisted to start with, but my purchases slightly exceeded the cash in my purse but did not quite reach the shops card minimum so I just had to didnt I????????
Found some great royalty free graphics of fairies and have some ideas floating around the grey matter. Watch this space.

New Fave Etsy Sellers - July

That should ready June Part 3 but the last few weeks have proven rather busy. I have not had time to sew which is a good thing as my Mum has borrowed the sewing machine. I say borrowed, but it was hers in the first place and my Dad banned her from using it. Apparently father has lifted said ban for a short time. No matter, no bloomin sewing time yet. Why is the summer term so hectic? Trips, new schools, fetes, the list goes on! Only 2 weeks and 2 days left till a glorious 6 weeks off. Yes, I know that is one hell of a holiday, but there has to be some perks to cooking school lunches!!!!!!!!!!!

This time the etsy seller feature is Sherrie Spencer. The detail in her artwork is quite unsurpassed. Fans of Johnny Depp should take a peek in her shop. Lots of fairies, which are my particular thing (not that I do not like JD).
