Im a bit happy today
 mainly as the headache i thought would attack me today did not, and also the bag straps arrived today!
Really quitw happy about that as it means i can finally post an order out, that seems like i have had forever.
It is a sunny stroke cloudy day here but very warm in the sun.
My order book is filling and summer is on its way.

Well it has been beautifull today, summer has poked it's head around the corner, but know good old british weather it wont last for long.
 i got to enjoy the sun, in the classroom at college today,
I have been attempting to decypher shakespears much ado about nothing, personally i think the man was missing a few marbles, but then again compared to some of the dribble on tv these days arn't we all.
I f you do not follow my facebook page, it is 10% off day to try and pick up my mood from yet another failed auction, :(.
Not to worry tho, as it means i have more time to do my college work. boo!

Why i do what i do

Happy sunday!
Today i have made a cushion cover from the very hungery catepillar fabric i have.

Apart from that its a boring sunday, i have no fabric and no more cotton, so im hoping i may sell more things to make more things.
People keep asking me do you want to do this as a buisness?.
Well my answer is. Yes, but not just yet, for now its a hobby, a hobby i do get joy from. The main reason i do it as i love to sew.
I do it as if i were to make what i do i would have a house full of homemade things and no money.
I still dont really have alot of money, as i dont really make anything from my "buisness".
But its fun and i love the feeling that people like what i make and trust me to make things for them

All quiet

Well that's my two maths exams over and done with, i think i did well, well i hope i did anyway.
 Bit of a nightmare last night as boo woke up with an awfully high temp, so she spent the day at home watching films with daddy.

Its a bit quiet here in Vikki land, no orders and I'm waiting for my fabric to arrive, so cannot really do much, altho i have been toying around with some ideas, for mothers day and Easter, mainly cushions but when i get some felt in i will get my cath kidston on and make some egg cozies. Here is a rough idea of the cushions i was thinking of making for mothers day, what do people think?,
i personally love the idea of something plain and bold, but also using patterned fabric for the heart.
Anywho, i have to keep an eye on my facebook followers as i am giving a prize this eve so keep your eyes peeled
