This week has been a little hectic what with eldest daughter returning from sea totally unorganised I have been busy trying to sort out this years accomadation for her but as of yet its not sorte dthis is why she was up at the crack of dawn this morning to get a train and a bus to college still at least I managed to get on here now shes safely on her way
I have done a little bit of sewing with the gorgeous fabric I picked up recently

Littleton Show always the 1st Saturday in September

Before I start just pop over to Handmade Monday 34and comment on the lovely blogs and a big Thank you to Wendy for starting this amazing idea I love it
Heres this weeks Handmade Monday
I have been doing Littleton show for 4 years now and I love it
I always get to be next my Friend who makes Fimo dragons and have a lovely Day
The first Year I did this show I sold lots of things the following year less then the following less again but this year was different I sold a lot more
Each year I try to do something new to add to my basic stock this year I decided as I have lots of Childrens beads  and to sell them in mixed bags with elastic this went down very well with adults and children
I didnt sell any jewellery which is very unusual mainly people were looking for something different so cushions and aprons went down well
Heres a few pictures of my stall

Yayyyyyyyyyyy kids back to school BLOG time

Wow the holidays seem to go on for ages this year
I love the lie ins but my 11 year old with the bad knee is feeling very bored and lonely without her sisters (one is in Alaska the other working every hour saving to go to uni) so its up to me to lay on the entertainment which is not as easy as it used to be when she was younger
Soooo craft well I have to say I have been looking at rather than doing it but we did manage to make some russian doll pin cushions these were in a kit for my daughters birthday I tried to find them today to take photo but they are well hidden in her bedroom next week maybe
We went away to Scotland and I came across this shop
It was a cute little place and next door was another art shop I picked up a great book with lots of ideas and some cupcake shaped cookie cutters
The photos came out well
 Traditional Thistle
The bridge from the Harry Potter films
It was a lovely week away wet but very green

We had some great exam results too the only complaint was 1xB how shocking lol (her words not mine )
It was also her 17th birthday so we had a lovely BBQ full of home-made cupcakes and mini pavlovas

This cake is a giant Oreo cookie
I have done a little sewing this weekend a couple of orders
 Spongebob bag
Spongebob Cushion
And heres a few cards I am in the middle of

So I guess I had better get back to the painting dont forget to pop over to Wendys Page Handmade Monday and make some comments on the other blogs I am off out again for a hospital App so I will be checking them out this evening
