Just a quick post as I wanted to move on from the sad slaughter of my hens by naughty foxy-loxy...But thank you for all the kind comments that you left and I am sorry to all of those who have also lost dear feathered friends in the past - thank you for sharing your stories...
Today was a quieter day in the shop...well, lots of people came in to chat, which was very nice, but most were holding tightly to their purse strings...never mind, it did mean I was able to get the shop tidied up after the busy Saturday and I also had time for a bit of sewing too.
Lola was glammed-up, after spending Saturday in her 1940's pinny...
I gave her an ostrich feather boa, corsage, glass bead necklace and a large flower brooch...What? Too much you think?!...Can you have too much glitz and glam? ;-))
I bought this lovely old panel of embroidered linen from Lizzie at the weekend.
I loved the soft muted colours of the wool yarns used to work the design.
The unusual shape allowed me to create a novel shoulder bag, with rounded bottom! Floral linen teamed with it for a hard-wearing eco-bag. I brought it home this evening so that I could add my 'trademark' coordinating costume brooch and a vintage button. It'll be back at the shop tomorrow though.
Belinda at No.21 has decided to change her shop's days to closed on Mondays, and open on Wednesdays...I may do the same if Mondays continue to be quiet...but I'll let you know for definite if I do, and will alter my website details accordingly.
And another quick thank you to Hen this time, for her very generous blog post about my shop after her recent visit!
Have a great week,
