How quickly the last week has gone, I say it every year, but each year I seem to mean it more than the last. Time is flying by. Sometimes, two weeks has gone before I even feel I have blinked. I do think that time is very precious, and on a deeper note, all this time whizzing by has made me think about how
I spend my time and how I can be a little of a time waster, do you waste time. Am I wasting my time here now writing this, I happen to think not, as blogging is a passion of mine, a joy, an outlet, sometimes a little secret world, a fun place to be, a sometimes very thought provoking place to be, so no I don't think writing here right now, is a waste of my time. Especially when I have a giveaway winner to announce.
The lucky winner is Claudia over at Backcombing & Bows well done Claudia your pretties shall be on their way to you. Thank you all for taking the time to comment and go in the hat, I dearly wish you all could have won.
Ohooo the ladies evening went well, made a little wonga as we call it in our house and even though it was late when I got back, Miss. Poppins and I sat and counted all the pennies I made :0) More orders too to keep me busy and am booked in for two more tables coming up at various events. Have I told you I love the face to face selling, I am in my ickle element behind that stall ;0) Didn't get a chance to take many photographs, but here are one or two of some pretties I had on offer.
Large lined shoppers were very popular....
I have to say the cowboy one was a real favourite of mine....
With its pretty red gingham lining....
I think I must have given off don't buy me vibes on the cowboy one as everytime someone went near it, I pounced on them as if to say it is mine ;0) Hence it came home with me and am now wondering what to do, is it a keeper or seller, hmmm.
A cushion I made about hour before I was due at the ladies evening, yes I know, I must like to work under pressure, sold within 10 minutes. I used a lovely linen and the CK Provence rose and each letter had on it a hand sewn vintage mother of pearl button.
I also sold a lovely cushion in one of my favourite fabrics and here the lovely young lady, whose mum kindly treated her to it, walking away with it. I love this photograph, for me it kind of captures why I like making pretties for people. I don't do it for fame, though of course we all know I can like a little fame occasionally ;0) or the money, I just love handmaking something pretty and it makes me smile knowing someone likes it enough to want to maybe buy it and take it into their home or indeed give to someone else as a little gift *sigh* I am a softie aren't I.
