Some Secret Sewing...

My younger sister had some rubbish news last weekend. She is in her final year at a Performing Arts and Dance School, but she has just found out that she can not receive any funding for her last year. this is bad bad bad news because mum and dad don't have a huge amount of pennies so Rachel is stuck....unless Rachel and the school she is at can talk some sense into the people who fund her accommodation. I'm not 100% sure of all of the details but i know for a fact shes down in the dumps so i thought a surprise present was in order. sometimes mum and Rachel read my blog so I'll only give you a've always got to put some buttons in it haven't you?!Sleepy time??
I thought i should pop a little something in for my mum and also my nanny (as shes visiting on Sunday)Well...that picture isn't too ambiguous really is it?!
I also listed a load of children's bits and bobs over on StuffedNonsense's folksy shop... a load of bibs like this one...

and also something new we were asked to make by the shop in Cirencester...

We kept a few back for the shop. We've called them 'Dummy Tamers', you attach one end to the dummy (with a press stud) and the other connects to the push chair/pram (with a button and hole)

I found this great looking new magazine called Cloth Magazine, you can find their website here. When pay day arrives tomorrow i think I'm going to order a copy!!

Righto I'm off for a bath and some book...have a nice evening dearies.
