Its been a while.....

A few things have happened since my last post. I have had my first, well first 3 sales in Beakyberdashery. 



I have treated myself to a pincushion ring from Art Nest. Its fab I love it and is is great  when sewing little projects like my babushka dolls.



I have been placing a button order for an age, but I finally decided on the buttons to order and they have arrived! I love them! They are so bright and funky, I want to sew them to everything. Not sure the boys woulds appreciate that though. These are just a few of them, pop over to Beakyberdashery to see more.



I also finally got all 36 dolls made and sent off, then it was the turn of the Jute bag! I have had an order for 5 of these and a few of the big ones too. Isn't it funny how you seem to have runs on things. I have two left to finish today.



We have all had a crappy cold in the Beaky household (hoping its not swine flu!!!). I'm finding it so hard to concentrate on anything. Ok I'm off to start preparing the dinner - Thai fish curry!

Oh and we are getting new windows and a door fitted on Monday, wish me luck!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend,

that ring is hilarious! I can't believe someone thought of that. . . so much safer than the mouth. (yea, that's how my momma showed me how to do it . . .)

oh, those buttons look like candy - all the colors and stripes and I can almost hear the sound they make when they are all in your hand, and while you're sorting them....takes me back to grandma's button tin....Love your pictures!!!
