Hanging on the telephone.....

These new red telephone box phone cases are proving popular. 

Maybe it's something to do with all of the London festivities later this year!

Time out

After making a few orders today so there's a little less to do tomorrow my husband and I went to Lewes to our favourite place to have lunch.
Just across the bridge in the High Street is 'Bills'. 
It's a really busy, lively place and the food is fantastic.

In the summer the seats outside are always full and you struggled to find somewhere to sit and inside is always as busy.
The shelves are stacked with delicious jars of 'Bills' own chutney, jams, sweets, chocolate, you name it they have it!

This pile of delicious oranges were right in front of us as we ate.

The main seating area was behind me as I took the photos but I felt I couldn't really turn around and take photos of random people while they were eating as I may have been thrown out!

This is the view as we came out of the high street.....
and across the bridge with the Harvey's Brewery behind me.
In nearby Ringer there has recently been a wind turbine installed to power Glydebourne, the Opera house with electricity.
 I just love them. I know a lot of people hate them but I find them really peaceful and relaxing to look at.

This photo made me laugh. I'm on the right and it looks like I ate far too much in 'Bills'
and that my tummy has sagged even more than normal!
 It's actually my new 'Cath' bag hanging messenger style on one side.

Look at the colour of the sky. Who would have thought it's February, it looks more like August!

A quick snapshot of Glyndebourne as we went down the country lanes back to home.

It was good to get out and away from the sewing machines for a while!

All that glitters

I had a little break from sewing yesterday afternoon to do one of my other favourite things.....baking.

 I made these cupcakes for my nephews birthday party. I'm not sure he appreciated the glitter sprinkled on the top though!

Good Day Sunshine!

I think the lovely weather we had on Thursday got people thinking about summer as I've had lots of orders for my 'bring me sunshine' sunglasses case!

Ps... It's not to late to enter both of my giveaways below!

Freebie Friday!

I had to make quite a few Kindle cases yesterday for orders and after finishing this one I realised I'd lined it with the wrong fabric. It should be green polka dot but I'd used pink. 
So.....I've decided its going to be another giveaway!
You are welcome to add a comment to this giveaway even if you have entered my glasses case one below.

Just leave me a comment and I'll draw both next Friday 2nd March!

Spring has sprung!

The new NOTHS Spring Gift Guide is now out and my glasses cases are featuring in it. This photo I've taken isn't particularly good as the true colours aren't really shown very well. They are the cerise pink and salmon.

There's still time to enter my giveaway to win one and I'm going to extend the draw until the middle of next week.
Good Luck!

One bag....two bags


Made with 'Cath's' Royal Rose blue cotton duck fabric.

Another new bag.

I spent yesterday afternoon making a bag. I got the pattern from the brilliant 'Mollie Makes' magazine. I got the fabric about 6 months ago and had forgotten I'd got it. When I saw the pattern I knew it was a bag for me. I love messenger bags, I find them the easiest to carry as they don't hurt my shoulder. Like most women, my bag is like Mary Poppins carpet bag, full of everything and weighs a ton!
I've got another one half made out of 'Cath' fabric and I'll show and tell when it's done.

Ps......Don't forget to enter my giveaway in my last post.

My daughter did a bit of sketching yesterday and I made the designs into phone cases. We are both very happy with how they turned out and they will be added to my NOTHS shop later today.
They will link in nicely with some London themed goodies I have planned for this years celebrations!

Medal Monday

I was asked at my recent meeting at if I could come up with some Olympic themed items. Between my daughter and I we came up with this.
We have other ideas which I will share with you when I've made them.
The Spring Gift Guide is out next week, which I'm featuring in and I'm excited to see the photo this time as it's a little different to the others.

Well, I'd better carry on building stock in preparation for Mothers Day.
Only seems like five minutes ago I was doing the same thing for last year!

By the next post is my 100th so there's going to be a giveaway!
