Thank you so much Melmel for my lovely award. It's been a delight to discover your blog, and it was so lovely of you to give me this. I love it. I need to pass it on to five peeps, huh? Well, here goes, but it's hard to choose as so many people have been so kind given you are all such new (and wonderful friends):
Angel, for being such a wonderful new friend and for her blog, which always makes me laugh so much.
Trish at Trixie's Trinkets for the same. It's been so lovely to make online friends, and I love reading your blog also.
Bloomin' Myrtle for all her encouragement and advice, given I'm such a baby at sewing. Her comments have helped me so much. And as I said a couple of posts ago, she is so jaw-droppingly talented, it hurts.
Sootypea, for trusting me when she didn't know me, and posting me bits and pieces of fabric.
Raspberry Grace for helping me with my blog in the early weeks, and giving so much time and care over it.
And I've just got to add a sixth, because Biker Boots and Chicken Feet has been such an inspirational new blog, and Heather has been incredibly kind.
You are all truly valued, and it's lovely to be able to tell you all so!
So, I know you are all dying for a peek at the roadshow of the year.
But before that...
Now, also, hee hee, somebody asked (silly them!) to see the skirt I was struggling with for my middle daughter, which we were inspired to make having seen the wonderful tute for it on House on the Hill. I have to say, it's very pretty to look at, but there is rather a lot of material, which bunches around her waist a little too much. I think it's probably an ideal pattern for a toddler, or slightly older 5/6 year old, but 10 years is possibly a bit much. My fault. We loved it so much, we scaled it up. But my daughter did a lot of it herself, and we are really proud of it.
Now, more about the wonderful sale. Yes, THAT wonderful sale I went to at the weekend. A little quiz for you...
Which of these yummy things do you think I bought?
Or maybe my things are already hidden!
I'll tell you what, it was so hard to choose, given I'm on a tight, post holiday budget!
The best bit, of course, was meeting Fred and Happy. What lovely people they are.
More pictures to come...
