sewing and housework in that order!!

Well today is Wednesday and I had several tasks do some sewing (no surprise there then!) and some housework.
I did manage to get some sewing done. I finished a set of cupcake happy birthday bunting.. which i just love. I'd really like to keep it for my own birthday but as we have birthday bunting already, I'll post it in my folksy shop sometime this week.

I have done ok for sales this week. One set of cushions sold and posted to there new home and the daisy glasses case, will find it's way to my friends grandmother. Someone at work this week also asked me to make her a glasses case, with a cat on, as she's a super feline fan. I won't post a picture of this until I give it to her...i don't want to spoil the surprise.
I have been making a pretty cushion for a lovely little girl who has a birthday coming up so spent a little time in this today.( i can post this as she's a bit young for the world of blogging). This one is still work in progress.

Whilst in the mood for children's cushions, I also whipped up this cute sail boat one today. i love the nautical theme, especially as we live near the sea, and it's lovely to use that inspiration.

As for the housework today... I did clean the toilet and pick up the thread I'd walked through the house. never mind life is too short. Someone ( I'm not sure who) once said...

"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walkway before it stops snowing.  "


  1. I love all of your stuff... super designs, you clever little lady!!!
    I wonder who asked for a case with a cat on it!!!! xxxx
    And yes life is to short....

  2. Hi , Lovely makes :0)
    I'm wondering about the craft stall issue too.
    There were a couple at a local event at the weekend and they seemed to have exactly the same stock at the end of the morning as they did at the begining .
