If at first you don't succeed......

try, try again! Eureka!! I have been trying without success to add new posts this summer and finally my photos seem to be uploading again, who knows what went wrong but it is good to be back.

We have had a busy summer, both girls in final years and heading for new challenges in September, exam results......fantastic!, how proud am I that my girlie got A* for textiles!? words cannot describe.

Hospital visits with a positive outcome and relief all round, but tinged with anger that prescribed medication and restricted diet have been the cause and not the solution, we await final tests to be sure there is no lasting damage done, but am so thankful to have my beautiful girl back to health.
Holidays to St Ives, this photo is from our bedroom window we had a great week and pretty good weather considering how foul the rest of the summer has been. Holiday #2 to Hampshire to catch up with family and prepare wedding outfits.

But what about sewing? yes I have been sewing, lots of sewing making up stock ready for Christmas. My shops have been super busy over the holidays too and I'm so pleased that my Etsy shop has burst into life. I gave it a bit of a sort out a while back and it has really paid off, new banner, new stock, keeping the stock unified to give an overall 'look'

and to come, my sisters wedding, back to school and then autumn awaits.......and as I have pretty much given up on summer now, I am looking forward to autumn its colours and smells, we have large areas of ancient beech woods in the Chilterns and they look spectacular come autumn.
