A Well Overdue Catch Up!!

Did you all have a good Jubilee weekend last week?  

You may remember from my last post that I have been chosen to be on the Design Team over at The Sewing Boutique.  I was so excited when I received my first parcel of goodies that I couldn't wait to get started.  This is what I made...

It is a brooch which I proudly wore all weekend.

Hubby is currently listening to the cricket and I have bribed the children with rich tea biscuits so I can have 5 minutes to write this long overdue blog!!!!

Isn't it amazing how time passes so quickly.  I have given up writing to do lists lately as I have been finding that I spend far too much time writing lists then not actually ticking anything off them but now I feel like I am being pulled from all sides trying to remember all I have to do!!!!

Anyway, firstly we have been away for a weeks holiday to Lancashire.  6 hour drive for us which meant James my eldest (4) asked about 5 million times "are we there yet"!!!  The above pic of me wearing the brooch is at Blackpool Zoo.  It was a boiling hot day and had a lot of sunburn by the evening!! 

We stayed here...

It is Ribby Hall Village.  Really gorgeous and we will definitely look to go back again.  So much to do with the kids.

On site there is a very lovely tea room and farm shop.  I got so excited when we sat down to find that our dinner was being served on Emma Bridgewater crockery and LOOK what was in the middle of the table...


And this is my youngest, William (1), (also behind the name of my business)!!

I got hubby on the case who has taken some lovely pictures of these flowers in case I need them!!!

I had a wonderful delivery of buttons when we came home.  Aren't they pretty...

I still have lots of the polka dot ones still in stock but these super cute teeny tiny ones all sold out within a few hours so I have more on order.

I haven't had chance to add them to the website yet but they can be purchased via Facebook.

I have some exciting news also in that I have been asked to supply a further shop with some of my goodies.  I am thrilled.  I will keep you updated with what I make :-)

But for now its back to sewing some more of these...

Enjoy what is left of the weekend xxx
