Crikey is it really nearly 3 whole weeks since I posted?
A lot has happened in that time. Real life took over and I ended up working my day job (you know the one that pays) most days. Not that I minded. My boss was very poorly and I learnt a lot, did things I'd not done before, generally pushed myself that little bit harder and had fun most of the time.
I got to go on a trip to the Eden Project.
Not just to admire the lavender and wildflowers
but that was the first part of the day and they loved it!
A long day 13 hours with 65 children but what fun! I'd definitely go back with my own two but perhaps on a slightly cooler day. 45 degrees in the biome was a bit much for a paley like me.
I tried not to think about the Talent for Textiles fair back home and all the gorgeous things I might be missing... thank you all for making me green eyed with your piccies!
However I've missed making stuff. The sewing machine had a little break but needed to be brought back to life on Monday for teacher gifts...
Now I'm another year older my kind sister sent me this gorgeous fabric for my birthday. It's carefully folded up in my latest stash stack whilst I ponder what to make next...
In the meantime to make room for some new stock and to celebrate a fantastic month selling 6 beds I'm having a little sale in my Etsy Shop. 20% off for the rest of July so hurry on down while stock lasts and all that...
It includes the last beach bags and patchy t-shirts... just enter the code JULY13 at the checkout.
Now I'm hoping for a bit more of that sun we had before term finished.
This was where the little jammers wanted to go when school finished on Tuesday. A sunny afternoon at home a few miles inland, however the sea mist put a bit of a grey tinge on things!
