That was the sound of the last 2 weeks whizzing past me. I have no idea where February has gone let alone the last 6 months, which is how long we're been living in our beautiful 'new' home. 

I finally feel settled and content now and there are so many to do lists I'm almost making a to do list about the to do lists :D ha ha! A lovely friend of mine is coming to stay this weekend (waves at Andrea) so I'm planning on chattering lots, relaxing, drink some vino, maybe more that just some ;) and enjoying a tasty meal on Saturday. 

There has been lots of sewing going on here at Bagladee's new HQ's so I'm planning on another website session next week. Oh yes and I've received another custom order for a completely new style of bag, which is very exciting, the sketch is lovely just hope I can transfer that into constructing the pattern too.

about bloomin' time!

Today I finally added some new items to my previously neglected website. I spent most of last week re-shuffling pages, changing content and adding new pages. Then yesterday and this morning I busied myself with listing 16 new items. 3 new mini clutches......

and 4 new cosmetic pouches (1 of which has sold already).

I still have some other items to list and some group images to pop onto the main menu pages but I'm pretty happy with things so far. Please spend 5 minutes popping over to take a look, I always appreciate your feed back and if you spot any errors please let me know. Sometimes you get blind to your own mistakes when you've been staring at the pages for hours ;)

fabric + buttons

While I was really busy browsing my fav craft shops last week I also bough these fab buttons from Blooming Felt....needed for some more felt flower hair bands.

I've been after these prints for a while now, I can see them making gorgeous make up bags. Bought from Frumble.

This week I've been trying to be more disciplined with myself and my craft, its been too long since I updated my website. I have lots of new makes to add to it but I've just been putting it off for this reason and that. So Monday I had a bit of a reshuffle of pages and deleted a few I felt weren't adding any value to my site. I have lots of other exciting bits and bobs to add so I'll keep you posted along the way. I'm also contemplating adding some of my bags etc to my etsy and folksy shops. First things first!

Its a lovely sunny day out today with blue skies so I thought I'd team it up with these bright and cheery ribbons that I bought this week from Sarah @ Paper-and-string. Aren't they fab!

Cant wait to start using them :)
Today its so peaceful in my studio, this morning I did a little more work on my 'special project' for Blooming Felt Sarah and started a couple of other makes I've been meaning to for a while.

I'm hoping that today's sunshine is a sign of the start of Spring, could really do with some extended hours of daylight. Winter always makes me feel lethargic. Bring on the Summer!!

this afternoon

I've been working on something special for a very lovely lady called Sarah. I love sitting with a bit of hand sewing and a cuppa perfect way to spend an afternoon.
