Thanks everyone!

Thanks so much for all the orders, I will get started this weekend.

I have had a good week and bad , I installed an Interior Design Job that has been delayed because the fabric was stuck in customs but on Thurs night we installed. I take my Interior Design very seriously and always feel it need to be 'just right' well It was fab, lots of silk, Designers Guild fabrics, a buffet of Pink and green and choc...ooooooooooooooooow lovely, felt really proud.

My lovely Harvey (8 yr old Cocker) is not well, he is my little boy my substitute baby , he has been poorly before but think its come back...he can walk but cant walk up of down the stairs he just cries....its breaking my heart, keep thinking he will get better but think we need to go and throw money at the Vet tomorrow (they really should have soooo much money) it costs £50 to walk through the door, the last time it was £500 and the Insurance only paid out £300...
Anyway, my boy is sooo special I would sell ANYTHING if I needed money to make him better... I will keep you posted.

After hubbys car setting on fire and the engine blowing up after Lady K dropping my Blackberry in the bath and hubby standing on his Iphone its been a very expensive month....dont call me unlucky..

Hubby went out tonight, he was drinking Champagne and eating tapas...I am at home with the kids 2 dogs (1 poorly) and a mad kitten so I treated myself to some scrummy but health food. I was unloading the car in my bare feet dropped the flaked poached salmon on the drive, stood on it (remember I have bare feet) it squished through my toes-great, so I put the squwished salmon in a dish for the kitten and was left with nothing.Hubby arrived at 1am with a lovely hunter warrior style kebab which I caught him feeding the kitten, not his best move, he loves to tell me how much he loves me (a good indication of just how drunk he is..) then passes out on the sofa, tonight he even threatened to put the heating on! this was a shock because he is like the bloke from the royal family, if he goes out the fire goes worries about me still sitting here!
Its 2.13am and he lasted about 11Min's before he passed out after putting our marathon episodes of come dine with me on, I'm not sure if Harvey or Stuart is snoring the loudest. Its not chucking it down outside so I'm off to bed, shall I wake him?

The problem is what to do first, I'm sewing ,sorting, selling and child minding...(sorry the child minding was at the end of course that's first!)
My office is coming along nicely I hope to have some pics shortly I have moved the furniture round and I am ready to paint....The sewing room is a mess, it wasn't but is again and I have someone coming round later to buy some fabric so need to get cracking. The problem is there is a new craft shop opened in the Village its 2 mins away, haw amazing , I NEEEEEEEEEED to go and have a look don't I?

I have a new really lovely customer for my bags, doorstops lavender hearts etc etc I did a craft fair and a really nice lady bought some of my bits and bobs , she has a lovely village shop and would like to have some for her shop. How amazing is that! I now have 3 outlets!

My second article is going into Sew Hip magazine so I am really excited about that too here is a sneak peak of the project.

Any no-one guessed the Dog bed I designed I thought I would offer a FREE LAVENDER HEART to the first person who has seen my first article in this Months Sew Hip and know how many pages it was...(something little me is very very proud of)

gotta go painting ect to crack on after a little crafty visit of course......
