Sorry, Sorry, Sorry!

No Pictures today as I have no new ones.

Right to start with sorry number 1 - I have been a very bad blogger as I have lots on at the moment, lots of fairs, getting ready for Christmas, husband very busy at work which has forced more day to day chores onto me & then on top of all that I am organising a 'Ladies Pampering' evening for little dears Pre-School tomorrow evening here www.hodsockpriory.com we have sold 100 tickets I have 10 stall holders, 2 beauticians and an Indian takeaway arriving mid way through the evening. I will take some photo's and let you see how it goes.

Sorry number 2 - I have not been leaving lots of comments as I have loaded all my blogs onto Bloglines and it is then a pain to go and leave comments.

Sorry number 3 - The winner of my 100th post competition result, so in theory there is still time to leave me a comment saying anything as you then get entered into the giveaway.

I will try to resume some normality with blogging after this weekend.

Teachers Gift Sets!

This is the 1st time ever I think I have tried to promote you lot some of my products, but I have sold so many and received some nice comments from teachers who said " I wish someone would buy me one of those" that I have decided to plug them. They are £5.50 each they contain a tissue holder & a lavender heart with the words 'Best Teacher' on it. It is beautifully boxed with Christmas ribbon on it. If you are interested drop me a line as I have more designs of Cath Kidston Fabric available that are not photographed as yet.
Plug over!
I am doing the draw for my 100th post later tonight so there is still time to leave me a comment, to be honest if anyone leaves me a comment they are getting added into the bag.

A build up! (Not in my bowls)

You know when you have a lot to blog about but downloading the pictures, making the time just seem to get in the way of you actually sitting down and writing a post, well that's how I have felt for the past week, so today at work I have made the effort.

Look what arrived in the post for me, a much awaited parcel from Natalie at Roseberry Crafts, she was my swap partner in the Campervan Swap arranged by JellyBelly, Jelly Brain.
Look at the gorgeous parcel, are you excited at this point as much as I was, I think not!

More build up, more gorgeous paper, but the chocolates were lucky to get into the photo action!

Yeh! The campervan picture is amazing, the amount of detail and effort was fabulous, the vintage cotton reels are now added to my little collection that I got from my holidays earlier in the year.

Gorgeousness! (Is that a word!) Waiting to be displayed in my studio, talking of my studio, look below!

My studio looks very lovely from the outside, now it is all rendered and painted and accessorised. Ignore the cable going in through the window, I have light in there but as yet no sockets are live! My hubbo is working on putting the radiators in there this weekend to get some much needed heat in there. I will do an inside shot soon.

Look what loveliness arrived on my door step on Saturday, don't get the impression that I need a different brooch for every outfit, I sell these at my fairs! Lovely friend Sara @ All about Eden makes them for me. I have to say my favourite one is the aqua one and guess which one sold!

I also received an award from Joe over at Josie - Mary, so thank you very much.
The rules are that I pass it on to 6 people so here goes.
Well done ladies you thoroughly deserve it!
My next gripe it with all you ladies that have not entered my giveaway as yet all you need to do is put up a link on a post to my blog 'Passing on' Jamies Mackeral Pate. And then just leave me a comment saying the deed is done. (I have altered the rules slightly to make it easier for you)
Have a good day, don't know when I will next post as I have a big fair at the weekend, so I may be sewing and packaging stuff!
