Before I start to tell you about my week I want to say a big thank you to all who joined in the fun last week by sharing their smiles. I really do love to see what's making you all happy so thank you for taking the time out of your busy lives to link up.
So onto what's been making me smile this week?
What a week it's been here for me....it started off with my Mojo going on holiday and I really was struggling to get creative. I mentioned this on my Wednesday post and the comments that came back really made me smile. What a truly wonderful lot of friends I've got.....many I've never met [hopefully I will meet many more at the crop at Llandudno in September though] but even from a distance you were able to really make my day. You lifted my creative spirits my friends so thank you soooooo much.
From having a couple of quieter weeks this week turned manic. Everyone had left much wanted sewing to the last minute so I've been chasing my tail all week to not disappoint anyone.
- Shortened two dresses for my daughter, taken one of them in on the side seams and lifted it on the shoulders ready for her holidays
- Shortened two hems on an evening dress ready for a posh event
- Shortened the sleeves on a young man's jacket ready for his school prom
- Made 3 school memory bears to give as end of year gifts
- Altered a Kindle cover/stand for one of my customers to take away with him on his holidays
.....and yes it all makes me smile because I love my job and work best when under pressure. I was rewarded for my efforts by selling another of my eye spy quilts yesterday too so that really made me smile.
My photos for this week are of my orchids because they are really stunning at the mo and two of my plants that flowered last year have thrown out new flower shoots and yesterday when I snapped the pics the first of these new flower shoots had a bloom opening.
I hope these have made you smile today. You should be able to click on the pics to enlarge them if you want a closer look. Please leave me a little comment to let me know you've called in and then link up to your own smiles below. I will be along as soon as I can to check them out.
