... Gets Folksy!

I have finally put items on my Folksy shop! Have a nosey at my handmade Pretty Flamingo Tote Bags.  Made using recycled fabrics including some vintage pieces. A perfect unique accessory to go with the summer trends.

I will soon be adding tea cosies, pin cushions and needle cases. x

... feels a little guilty.

So I haven't done a blog post for over a month and I feel a little bit guilty but here's some of the things I've been doing to fill you in...

Big Sister Bertie and I had a go at selling crafty stuff at the Worcester Flea. Unfortunately after having a lovely sunny week the weather decided to be completely rubbish.  There was rain, sleet and a very chilly wind which meant that there were very few people and we spent most of our money on hot drinks.  I sold one pin cushion and traded a bag for a vintage skirt.  Not a great success but we still had fun meeting new people.

As Middle Sister Harry was turning the big 30 this month and was having a bit of a difficult time with a poorly knee, Bertie and I decided to throw her a surprise birthday party with a railway children theme (as it is one of our favourite films).  All friends and family were secretly invited,  costumes were made and we transformed a damp old church hall from this...

... to this...

We basically moved the contents of our parents living room half a mile up the road.  There were metres of handmade bunting, iced buns with pink icing and lashings of ginger beer. We showed the The Railway Children film (1970s version of course!) on a projector and everyone had a jolly good time.  Harry really had no idea which made it all the more wonderful!

In other news I will soon have some brand new glasses and sunglasses which I am rather excited about and this weekend I will be making cushions for Hampton Court Chapel.  I have also set up a folksy shop and will have tea cosies and flamingo bags on it very soon!

See you soon x
