Catch up?

I know you're probably thinking where have I been for the last few days and I have felt a bit duped that I've broken my continuous blog run :( I have been so busy this past week it hasn't felt like the Easter break at all.

Not that I'm complaining Ooooh Noooo......we had a week shutdown at work last week so I spent the time working on orders from BCTF and lots of other bits and bobs that seemed to take up more time than I had planned. As you can see from the photo above, mid week I had a couple of supplies deliveries including these very yummy coloured zips for my cosmetic pouches. And now that I have found a trade supplier I can get them in larger batches :D I also received some interfacing (not so yummy but essential) Still waiting on fabric, some more findings and clutch frames.

I have also been packaging up some more fabric that will be winging its way to new homes where I hope they will be transformed into wonderful creations. If you haven't checked it out have a peek in my new destsash on the right side bar. It was about time that I stopped hoarding fabric and did something productive with it. Offering a bargain seemed quite appropriate.

I have managed to get a lot of sewing done this week and as a little reward we took the day off yesterday and rode out to Matlock on C's bike. This is the first time that I have been on this bike. Previously C had a sports bike and I wasn't too keen on it, far too fast and not comfortable to ride on. This one is a Honda Shadow and has been customised by C himself. As he is a massive fan of American Chopper on Sky its beaming with Chrome and has had a custom paint job Very pretty. Its an 'easy rider' bike so we had a nice leisurely ride, a nice walk in the sun, chatting to other bike fanatics, fish and chips and then a little more brisk ride back. Lovely day......back to work today sadly.


  1. oh yum, look at those zips! I'm waiting for a shipment myself. I know an Esty shop where they're about 20p each.

    I didn't realise you were in Derbyshire, we pop over to Matlock sometimes and to Cromford to visit the aazing book shop.
