best in show

OK so this wasn't an award that i was actually given, but my stall at the event i have just done was easily the most colourful and interesting... or at least i think it was... and it certainly helped sales as i sold lots of things...

could have should have

i love a good rummage around etsy vintage and put lots of things in my fave album hoping one day that i might have the spare cash for a bit of a splurge, but i always risk the chance of things selling before i can grab it, i accept this and have missed some lovely things.. but hey, if they were meant to be mine then they would be i guess... but look at what i could have and should have bought, and this will most likely give you an idea of the kind of things i like..

i love cushions

i like making things, i LOVE fabric and i love having a project on the go and have many things on my to do list... but i really really like making cushions.. from lovely lovely fabrics.. and i have just finished some for my new shop, and they are real happy accidents.. i didnt think about it too much, i just got a mix of fabrics and sewed them together and then got my bag of ribbons out and like a lucky dip just kept going until the edges were trimmed in a frilly ribbony splendid lovlieness... and they might just be a bit too much.. but i love them...
