Etsy and beyond...

well my feet have been floating about 6" (metric...mm about 15cm!) off the ground this week...just blown away by the lovely responses here and on Facebook to my Giveaway...so thanks to everyone who took part...sorry you couldn't all be winners, thanks for all the lovely comments and compliments xx

...and I'm celebrating my first sale on Etsy!! 

...and at Tullie House Gallery and Museum in Carlisle,  a certain C-art Pop up shop has been selling work for me and want me now to sell my goodies there more permanently!!

...and the email came saying I have been allocated a stall at Woolfest in June...book it in your diary now 28th and 29th June...it's a fab event!


it's all so wonderful! Thank you Universe! Big hug xx

so to get my feet back on the ground...I've ordered 1000 brooch pins...how many?!!

...and been a making a pretty bag...which is of course the best bit, sitting in my lovely warm studio, sewing and getting creative again, with a stunning view of the fells, chickens scrattling about outside, husband of patience out planting willow in the field, daughter mine zooming something amazing on her sewing machine...half term happiness!

I seem to have been asleep for the last couple of months but now like out in the garden I'm waking up...and just loving that all I need to do is get some fabric and thread and start to play...and this is what may happen....colours just come together and then a brooch appears...and...

mind you there is a certain lack of house loving been going on...so I think maybe that's the next assignment...but there is just a half finished bag may need my attention...what do you think??

hope you've had half as good a week as I have, and have a lovely weekend... Emmax
