Firstly I want to make a special offer to all my WOYWW friends. I am reducing my rubber stamps for one week only by 20% [postage still to be paid in full]. To qualify you have to be a WOYWW and as the stamps I am selling are already less than half the price I bought them for this is a real bargain. So folks if you are one for a bargain then please pop over to the shop and grab yourself a couple of sets.
I have to say I am still on cloud nine from all the exciting news on Saturday. [please scroll down if you want to see why :-) ]. What has really spooked me out is I have now predicted all my 5 grandchildren successfully [even down to the exact weights of the two we already have!!]. I am aware I have a 50 50 chance of being right but 5 out of 5 is pretty spooky......and I really had no doubt as to what they were :-)
I am going to show you what our friend T made on our fun day Monday this week. T is pretty new to sewing and she came armed with material and a seat pad from her newly painted garden garden shed that she is converting to a summer house. Twiglet and I helped and guided her into making her new seat pad cover including putting her first zip in and by the end of the afternoon she very proudly went home carrying her finished project. Isn't it pretty material and didn't she do a wonderful job girls?
This is what is on my work desk today. It's gone Wedding crazy here over the last couple of weeks. I have shortened 4 bridesmaid dresses [3 hems each!] and still have another to do and isn't this Wedding dress just gorgeous? It's a sort of oyster colour and has lots of beaded detail. I have to shorten the front by about 1 1/2" and thankfully the netting and under skirts are short enough to not need altering cos there are loads of them.
On top of the wedding items I have also had prom dresses, evening dresses and several customers arrived with bags full of other items needing altering. It was certainly one of my busiest weeks and of course it all had to be done in just 3 days cos I'd taken Monday as a catch up / crafting fun day and Tuesday was a 'have fun being a Nanny day'.
I wouldn't change my life for the world.....I have more than enough wonderful things going on that the frustrating, not so wonderful bits fade into the far distance.
Now girls it wouldn't be me if I didn't share a few garden bits with you....
Skye said she would pose for you so you can see how my Triffid is growing. Still no flower and it seems to grow literally inches daily!
And to leave you on a high with a smile on your face I have snapped this treasure for you. This is a poppy plant blooming for it's first year. It has just 2 blooms on it and this one, believe it or not, is 8" across!
It's just gorgeous.
Right friends, thank you so much for dropping in and sharing my world. Pop over to Julia's blog and join in the WOYWW fun and then go and have a wonderfully creative week.
