Sunday catch up – a day late!

Anyone would think it was a bank holiday! Here’s hoping Handmade Harbour link party is still open..

I’ve had a productive week, yeah!! I have finished my daughters dress… sadly the finished result does not fit, the straps keep falling down, despite taking in the sides by a good inch. I suspect it will be shelved until my Mum next visits, Amy and I are confident she has a rescuing idea (you are forewarned Mum!).


I have been working on research re my bags business, if you fancy spending ten minutes filling in a ten question questionnaire I would be very grateful:) The plan is to identify blogs potential customers visit. I have also been working on setting up a Newsletter – this remains a work in progress (or should I say the test e-mail does not work… need to find the one box I have not ticked).


Finally I have been working on tidying up my sewing room, in particular the windowsill. This has led to a whole new product range (as I said a productive week),

Denim Upcycled Brooches

Introducing denim upcycled brooches. Perfect for jazzing up any outfit or bag.

These are listed in my Etsy shop. As I still had a lot of fabric left I have also made a few more of my popular flower brooches.

Now I just need a craft fair to attend, plus a few more brooch pins! Sadly the windowsill remains a work in progress, I had no idea how much fabric was stored.  I am off to whip up some denim baskets to keep on it, for storing different colours of fabric scraps:)

I hope you have had a productive week:)
