New Little Bags for Girls

I have nearly finished Elspeth but I realised her dress was a bit short for the cold weather so I am making some knickerbockers. So you will have to bear with me.

This afternoon I was working on a sample for a possible supplier. The brief was for little handbags for little girls. Right up my street as I am still a little girl at heart. If not in the mirror sadly.

This is what I came up with for style. The client will be having her choice of fabric so this one is up for grabs at the very reasonable bloggy price of £10 if anyone would like it.

Birthday Goodies and some Floristry

Well I think the heart of the blogger issues are deep rooted in a conflict between blogger and AOL. They have been fighting I think, because if I do my posting on internet explorer I have no issues, headaches or well um swearing! I have some catching up to do.

Last week I had a birthday (no not telling which, I am at that point where I try to forget).
My work college bought me some lovely gluten free fudge chocolates and a bunch of magenta carnations. When I got home I realised all my vases where a bit on the large side so I popped into the garden. I did not expect to find much to fill it out with, but look what I came up with. I was rather pleased.

I was a lucky girl and have a shiny new purple i-pod nano and the most luxurious half length dressing gown from House of Fraser. I have also a cd I wanted for ages (Disturbed, Indestructible. So so good). In addition a voucher and some spends. So I will be off down the town at some point. Thinking maybe a nice big Yankee Candle jar. Oh that will be a long sniff and decide session.

Now its half term and I am looking forward to some crafting. Although I have some housework to catch up on. Not so great, but it must be done.

Next time I shall reveal my first `elephant`. Elspeth is off the needles but needs sewing up. She has given me achy hands as I have been so keen to finish her.

Where have I been, you may ask. Well the truth is, nowhere. I have tried to blog a couple of times but Mr.Blogger has been up to naughty tricks and all I got was error messages and unable to post a thing. Well now its seems he has been told off and sorted out so here goes.

You remember `Tess`, my first experimental Teddy? Well let me introduce you to `Tilly` her sister. She has a few tweaks on her older sibling and I am more pleased with the result. The question is, do I accept that everyone is different, even teds, or do I perform atheistic surgery (ie, off with her head and re-knit it). I think I will put it down to the former and not put her through that. She is not exactly ugly.

A quick reminder of Tess
