I am thinking of introducing my Googley Chum Badges onto my Etsy site. You will never be lonely again!

I feel I have been sewing cushions and cosies in my sleep; here are some of my favourites. The lady in the green specs. reminds me of Diane Keaton in that Woody Allen film, whatever it was called??
Have been really busy with orders for the past two weeks, but I am back on the blogging now! Here is an order that went out to a lovely shop, www.landbaby.co.uk. I am delighted to stock it. It was really nice to do an order of 'just men' for a change!

Went to a book launch of a lovely friend of mine over the weekend at the brilliant 'Much Ado Books' www.muchadobooks.com in the picture postcard village of Alfriston. Her book is called, Crocheted Accessories, and it is stunning! www.vanessamooncie.com One for the craft shelf I think, you are a very clever lady Vanessa!
Aaahhh, the sight of flapping bunting in the summer breeze, the sound of children laughing and people clapping the winner of the 'waggiest tail' in the dog show. The Summer Fete season is well and truly upon us. As I enter the field my first thought is, 'where is the bric-a-brac table???' (swiftly followed by 'is there a Pimms tent?'). A rather good 'bounty' from this particular fete I think, especially the lovely, and in parts faded, 1950s curtains, Pins and Needles magazines (a bargain £1) and 5 reels of Sass & Belle ric-rac!
(Not sure I will be taking tips from Beryl for Top Fashion though!)

I am finally back from my holiday in North Norfolk; lots of Gastro Pubs, fish n' chips, buckets and spades, Hollyhocks, bunting, changeable weather, colourful beach huts, art galleries, delis, sandy beaches, crabbing, fetes, huge skies and ice-creams. Jolly nice...
