Some images from the weekend and some items for sale

Dear All
Well it was well worth all the hard work and sewing last week the shop looked so pretty this weekend and I had a lovely day sitting sewing there on Saturday finishing my little brooches that I had started earlier in the week and thanks to all who popped in and chatted with me....... we even had some famous faces in and to mention one Erin O'connor I just so happened to have my camera out when she was in with her family and I am afraid I only had the courage to catch the back of her leaving the shop with a gorgeous white dress that she bought from us...
What fun!

I have been asked by a few of my lovely loyal blog followers for some inspiring spring gifts so some of the images below are of items that are for sale in my shop if any of the items take youe fancy please email me or call me directly to reserve and pay for the items as they will all be in the shop for sale again on Thursday

Enjoy and have a great week all
