As you can see - I have not been blogging recently! In fact, I haven't been making much either. Mainly because it's the school holiday and I have my daughter at home so we've been having lots of fun together but also because I've run out of steam!
I made a treasury on Etsy today and called it "All at sea..." as this seems to reflect my mood at the moment.

Been busy with my day job recently. However, last week I picked up some gorgeous embroidered silk remnants on a fabric shopping trip - so here are some of the results.
Chatting to the shop assistant paid off as she bought out lots of extra remnants from under the counter!
I also made some little purses (mainly for a house party I have coming up). I've decided to open a shop on Folksy and list those there - see what interest I get. Folksy is a UK based version of Etsy

Almost forgot - I joined the Shop Handmade directory, Fantastic site which any UK based crater/artist can join to list where they sell their products. So much amazing talent out there. Just go to http://www.shophandmade.co.uk/ for a real treat. Also an interesting blog to follow, with articles on featured artists and more.
Really pleased to have a bag in another treasury today. Things have been a bit slow recently, so I've been concentrating on making new stock. But this cheered me up! The treasury is called ... secret places ... and it's by Monarchdancer a very talented crochet artist.

Had a great day again today - Husband, daughter and I joined some friends for the British Heart Foundation Round the Harbour bike ride. 32 miles in total and we only got rained on once! My daughter and her friend where the youngest children we saw. Didn't make her ride her bike that far of course, we have a tag along bike so when she was tired she could just take a break and sit back! Had a lovely surprise when I got home. Logged on to Etsy to find two people had chosen one of my bags to put in their treasuries. Chartreuse Green clutch bag is in a treasury by AREjewellery called "I can't decide..." and Chrysanthemum in spring green and sky blue clutch bag is in treasury west by prettylittlepearl called "Haute Summer Bags!"

I've been waiting for a good day to start my blog - and yesterday was definitely it!
Spent the morning at my daughters school helping her class make kites. She was thrilled to have me there as this was the first time parents have been invited in (it's her first year at school) also really great for me to just see how she's getting on and what they get up to.
Came home in a really good mood and got stuck in to making some new bags. One of those days when things just seemed to be right - so here's the result! I'll be putting these beauties on my Etsy shop very soon. Let's hope people like them.
