Home sweet home.

My blog has been neglected for a while.

I went back to Winchester on an errand of mercy when my friend trapped her sciatic nerve and was completely immobolised and in severe pain. As she runs a Bed and Breakfast in her home she needed some help to run her business. So off I went.

After a couple of days I managed to get a nasty cold virus and have been ill ever since. It has turned into a chest infection and knocked me off my feet too.

Meanwhile I have opened my booth in 'The Old Salerooms' indoor market.

I'm selling my Vintage style flowers and stitched textiles. Being away and being ill has mean't that my business has been neglected but with the antibiotics nearly finished I'm ready for action.

It's great being 'Home Sweet Home'
so I made this Shabby Heart Garland to celebrate.

It's made from pretty floral fabric that I've tea dyed, the pink bows are chiffon Sari silk and it is completely hand stitched. It's going in my shop today and I'm making more for my Etsy shop.

Only a few more weeks until Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, I'm teaching a little crazy quilt heart collage so lots of kits to get ready.

I'm busy, busy, busy but also taking time to smell the roses.

Keep well everyone.

How wonderful. It is all so pretty. I am hoping to participate next year, just couldn't make it happen this year. Thank you for sharing - am adding your blog to my follow list:) You are welcome to take a peek at mine if you like as well.
You have a beautiful space.

Nice booth! Although, I can’t clearly see all the items, I assume they’re all nice, given your superb stitching skills. I hope you being sick is not a regular occurrence. While your hard work and passion towards your business is endearing, it wouldn’t do any good if you’ll end up awfully ill because of it. Take care!
