Busy....

Busy...
making this very "big" bag for a lady in the US.

And some more Lavender Strawberries for Our Shabby Cottage and My Shabby Cottage.
Pin cushions are also in the making as well as a few other goodies.
Etsy seems to be going really well at the moment, anyone else experiencing a busy spell?
I thought it would never pick up after the Christmas/New Year lull.
I'm off to the "Stitches and Craft Show" tomorrow with Mum.
We always enjoy it and one another's company.
It's not often we spend the day together, just the two of us.
If you happen to be going tomorrow and somehow recognise me, please come and say
"Hi Shabby!"
Now, I have my list and my credit card at the ready......only one more sleep.

Ooohhh Kathryn...... if only you had of been going to the Stitches and Craft show on Sunday - we could have caught up. I have some gorgeous friends who are brave enough to take me in my wheelchair.
Hope you have a great day with your mum.

Have a wonderful day at S & C, Kathryn. I am so envious of you going midweek; my visit has to wait till the weekend crush. Gorgeous bag - no surprises there, you always make such pretty things.
Cheers, Jan

Now that is my sort of bag..big enough for all my....stuff, was thinking of another word but will leave it at that.
Enjoy Stitches and craft, they have new designer areas now so it should be wonderful, not just the same old, same old.
Have fun,
Kiss Noises Linda

I make those very large bags as well and when I do they sell like hot cakes. Yours came out very beautiful. I like your little sachets as well. Very pretty. I'm going to have to teach myself how to make those to hang from my own shelves and display in my own china.

Nice work and glad to see you back on!

You need a little baged that says "I am a blogger", actually we should all have them and then we can pick each other out in the crowd.....

Actually Etsy has slowed down suddenly for me, hopefully will pick up again.
Maybe its because your items are so lovely that they are selling well :)

That bag is gorgeous!!! Great news on the shop front. I never had much luck when I tried etsy out last year but would love to give it another go sometime later on in the year.... Hope you had fun at the fair with your mum...

Take Care
