Wow how the time flies when you're having fun :-)

Here we are at another Wednesday....one of my favourite days of the week.....they are all pretty good to be honest :-)
I've had another busy week enjoying my extra munchkin days and customers are beginning to find me at the new abode.....about 200 fliers have already gone out around where we now live and another 200 will hopefully be delivered this week.  The best bit is that my existing customers are searching me out too :-)
On my desk this week is.....

I've used more of that stash of gifted fabric and have made a heart garland, a heart ring and 3 little individual hearts hanging on ribbon....rather pretty aren't they?
Just hope they sell. :-)

Can you guess what I'm making next?
Tea bags?...hehe no...I don't drink tea. :-)

They are little bags of lavender to make some pretty lavender bags with.

I then made the 12 little pyramid shaped lavender bags to put the above in with pink ribbon hangers.

And then decorated them all with tattered flowers made in matching fabric.

And just so you can see I've been busy doing paid work too here is my to do /completed sewing rail with.....
  • 6 pillar box military hats that I've sewn ribbon bands for.
  • 4 pair trousers / jeans I've shortened and
  • 2 new men's shirts that came needing their pockets sewing on...has anyone else ever seen shirts with optional pockets like this?  It's a new one on me :-)

And here is a quick pic to show you the new sign my daughter, Amy, and her hubby, Dave, printed for me.  It's just a small sign to help folk find me and it's simply perfect.  If any of you need banners / signs printing for anything then please follow this link to Big Value Banners because they do an brilliantly quick job at very competitive prices.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.  Please leave me a little hello message and I will pop over tomorrow to see what you've been up to this week [I shall be having a play day with my munchkins today ].

Glad your customers are finding you and that you are getting new ones too. Wish you lived closer, I could find you a job or two that I keep putting off.
Love all your heart-shaped makes and those lavender bags are adorable - of course they will sell.
Enjoy those munchkins

So glad everyone is finding you, Annie. Looks like the word "boredom" still won't be added to your personal dictionary!
Great lavender bags - those flowers on them just make them extra special.
Take care. God bless.

Hi Annie,

What cute lavender bags. A friend of mine makes lavender pillows for eyes. She usually sells out of them at the craft fair so I'm sure you'll do great. The heart bunting is adorable too.

Happy belated WOYWW (thanks for visiting me already)!

Oooh, lovely sewing projects, Annie! The little heart garland is a delight, and I love the lavender bag that look like teabags, both flat and pyramid shaped, and the gorgeous flowers. Great stuff.

Happy belated WOYWW,
