Phew...


The end of yet another really busy week. Customers numbers have now swollen to 855. I've altered 5 bridesmaids and made 3 voile bridesmaids sashes as well as the normal run of trousers to shorten, cards to make etc etc. [Oh and managed to make myself a new top!] It's nearly back to school time too and this week has also brought in the first few pairs of back to school trousers to shorten and more booked in for next week already.
Along with that Ive managed to slice, blanch and freeze the beans that big sister, Twiglet, picked for me here in our shared allotment. It's been a great year for produce. We have enjoyed the potatoes, beetroot, french beans, kidney beans, onions, the occasional courgette, a glut of tomatoes and the odd cucumber here and there. If nothing else this years weather has suited the garden.

Love the pic - but where do you keep your sewing machine!!

I've just had a nice look around your site - you are a busy woman!
I have one cairn (to your three!) but she takes the attention of a pack of humans. She's the second cairn we've had and I don't think I'd be without one.

Phew! I feel exhausted just reading all that! At least you don't have time to be bored.

When do you find a spare moment?

Have to agree that after a slowish start it has been a good year for produce - except for courgettes.

My goodness; you have all the distaff matters well in hand (I think). Congratulations on both having an expanding business and getting things done for yourself! Usually it's the dentist's children who are the last to have their teeth fixed, so I thought it might be the seamstress family who are the last to be properly clothed. Not so, in your case.
