Have had a really busy week this last week. Two local ladies I met at a fair I did in a neighbouring village have ordered some Christmas bits and pieces from me for a Christmas barn they are opening just for the month of December. They are showcasing all local produce and crafts and have asked me to make them some lavender hearts and Christmas gift bags from vintage fabrics.
I have finished the hearts, and am in the process of making the bags after having a few hiccough's with my new sewing machine.
I have also been busy raiding a friends garden for her beautiful Hydrangeas this week. They are the most divine red colour. I do wish mine looked like this in the garden, but sadly they never go this colour, something to do with the acidity of the soil I think.
I just pick them and put them in baskets or jugs and leave them to dry and they last for ages.
Another recent purchase, some Halloween bowl fillers. I love American primitives, and these have been handmade by a lady on Ebay, Fab aren't they? Looking forward to Halloween, not long to go. We decorate the house and dress up every year. Last year we used a fog machine outside the house and filled the road with fog, hence we had to turn it down a bit!!
