We’re off to do our very first market at Driffield tomorrow – not that I’m worrying or anything but I don’t expect to sleep much tonight mainly coz I’m hoping I’ll need all my mental maths brain to add up lots of metres of ribbon sales in my head. This is just some of it I also have a basket of odd metres that I’ve collected over the years to sell off – nowt like a good rummage to attract folk – fingers crossed

I have a giveaway on my Facebook page – the winner can choose a character and letter of their choice. These cute characters are interfaced for stiffness and then backed with felt. This set was requested by tall child to hang on her noticeboard – fortunately she has a short name!
If you don’t have a Facebook addiction you can enter here by leaving a comment stating your choice of character and letter. The giveaway will end on 18th March
They are available to order at £4 each plus P&P and can be finished as either a keyring, bookmark, bag or phone charm.
Sometimes I just stitch something I absolutely love – these cute little feet are 8 inch cushions and I even made the insert myself – finished with an envelope back in crisp gingham fabric. I can add baby’s name and date of birth if you request a stitched to order one – these 2 are ready to grace someone’s nursery right now
I’ve been a bit lax at updating just recently but have been kind of snowed under with orders and if I’m honest have been finding it a bit hard to keep all my balls in the air – who needs to dust and hoover anyhow.
New cushion design of this beautiful heart made of various cogs – I’ve stitched it in blues in greys but I can do it in colours of your choice. It’s 12×12 inches square
Just when I thought I’d made my last trip to the post office I have another sale! can’t complain **grins** The Winnie the Pooh and friends key rings have been really popular this year along with the Christmas decorations – not to self will start with the decorations earlier next year as I know I could have sold a few more
I’m going to make some different key ring designs next year along with re-stocks of my heart hangers including an owl design and some new designs of my own – all great plans but can I pull it off – watch this space………………………………
New this week a 12 inch cute baby cushion and coordinating 6 inch mini cushions in the pipeline. The fair yesterday was ok but there were a couple of local clashing events which probably didn’t help attendance but I now have a couple of orders to complete so in the words of that famous supermarket – Every Little Helps!
EDIT: Have just sat down for some lunch – so far today I’ve finished the 2 smaller cushions, 4 hangers, cut out 3 foldy up shopping bags and prepared 2 keyrings for hand finishing…………….
