Should have done the lottery

My luck seems to have been in lately (if you don't count the sleepless nights with headbutting boy) as I have won 3 giveaways! My first was the gorgeous Geisha Girl last week and this week I received these beauties in the post...

The gorgeous personalised picture from Helen at Petal Textiles for Isabella.



It is even more gorgeous in real life as the colours are really vibrant. I love it and can't wait to get it framed and on the wall. Check out this gorgeous bag from Helen's Folksy shop. Beautiful.



I also received this fabulous brooch from Emma at Sew Recycled for my mum. Its really lovely and a mix of fabric, crochet and silk flowers topped off with buttons and beads. Really gorgeous thoughtful present which will be one of the 70 presents given to my mum on her birthday on Christmas Day. Thanks so much.



Emma also have a folksy shop Sew Recycled I'm loving her Cake bunting!





I think my bank manager wants to have a word with Kate at Emily Pickle. She put a great fabric link on her blog Fiddlesticks Fabric. It would have been rude not to go and have a look and this is what I ended up with......










Note to self - STOP BUYING THINGS, GET OFF THE COMPUTER AND START SEWING!!

They were all very reasonably priced tho and as I have sold a few things recently I thought I would treat myself.

Thanks for the comments about fellow headbutting children - I am not alone!! Sam has slept much better the last couple of nights so fingers crossed now he is feeling better the headbutting will not be so bad. Thanks also for the good advice about my Christmas markets. I'm going to stick to the things that I know sell well rather than trying to make dozens of new things. It feels much more manageable now!

  3. You weren't joking about being a fabric addict were you! I just spent so much money, ouch - I hope I can recoup it all by selling all my stuff! Perhaps we should just become dealers!
