Shop,shop and more shop!

It's been so long since I did a post I thought while it's a little more quiet here I'd pop by and say hello.

I have had the most amazing few weeks work wise, and it still brings a smile to my face whenever I sit and think about it. It's been very strange not getting up in the mornings to go to work after years of doing just that. I have really missed the friends I made at school and the children, especially this time of year, with all the glitter and glue!
I hadn't done any Christmas shopping up until Sunday when my husband and I went to Brighton and I've been to the shops every day since. Makes a change from sitting at the sewing machine for hours on end!

Talking of sewing machines, mine decided to stop working two days before the last Christmas order was made. Luckily I had bought another Bernina, a secondhand one, that sewed like a dream, well up until the last day of orders when it decided it too had had enough. Luckily my niece came to the rescue and lent me her shiny new Bernina and the last order was posted on Saturday.
I have my machines back working now and am ready to start on the next batch of orders for dispatch after Christmas.

Tonight is my husbands work do, not a big affair just a meal and a few drinks in the pub so on that note I'd better go and find something to wear and make myself look presentable!

I wish you all a very peaceful, happy and safe Christmas and I'll see you all very soon.


  1. I dread the day my beloved Bernina gives up! Hope you found some relaxing time once your orders were done and have a fabulous New Year! Bethx
