For the last few weeks I have been busy helping my friend Jilly as she opened her new shop
"JILLY TILLY AND BOO"
as a lady who is passionate about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint she is delighted to have the chance to work with them full time and sell them in her premises.
I'm proud to be able to have some of my stitched textiles for sale too.

It's that busy time of year when I'm getting ready for Christmas fairs, my house is in chaos and I'm stitching full time. I've so many ideas and not enough time.
Ah well back to the sewing machine... I'll keep you posted with my progress.
Have a peaceful week.

Here's space for a little notepad and a pocket for threads.
and here's Rosie a little doll who loves to wear pretty clothes,
