Exhausted...but happy!

Phew!!! What a tiring week! First the Cheshire Show and then a day off followed by three days at the Capesthorne Balloon Festival. I sold out of all my best lines at both shows! It was hard work but made a lot easier by the fact that I had my lovely friends Joan, Terry, Wendy and Margaret next to me - it made the quiet times very bearable.

Wendy makes the most wonderful personalised canvasses, my favourite is a stork carrying a baby which can be customised with baby's name, birth weight and date of birth but as she is so talented I think you could have anything you wanted. I am hoping she will put some of her lovely designs on my web site so watch this space! Wendy's website is and you can order her wonderful canvasses on line.

Saturday, 13 June 2009 rest for the wicked!

Sorry for the long time between postings - I don't know where the time goes! Well I do, what with supplying three new shops and trying to hold down a part time job, life is pretty hectic. Well, what have I been up to? I have been making lots of lovely new things for my next craft fair which is at the Cheshire Show, like these lovely bunnies, filled with a fresh linen scent they have a little tail and are too lovely to hide away in a drawer.
Reproduced by kind permission of my friends Rachel and Catherine at Fingertip Interiors, these fabric gift tags look great on bottles of wine or any gift. Check out Catherine and Rachel's lovely products at
I can't resist hearts - I just love them, small and compact like these lavender filled hearts or big and cuddly like these primitive style hearts, I love the fleece material, it feels lovely.

Anyway we are off to Bruges soon (second time lucky) so best get on and finish the millions of jobs I have started!!!
