Saturday 1st February AKA day off that wasn’t a day off (in pictures)

Hello. Today is my day off. I am meant to relax. I’ve been working hard all week. BUT OH NO I’m having to do loads of stuff for the Vintage Fair next week. I am enjoying preparing for it. Just not with a headache. Here is my day in pictures.     Everything is a […]

Butchering, Downton Abbey and More Beading

I admit, when Downton Abbey started a few years ago, I couldn’t see the hype. I’d read Catherine Cookson and knew all about the guilt and heartache of people at the turn of the century. Now my view has changed – if not for the drama, then for the fashion. My last couple of creations […]
