Pillowcase Dress & Frou Frou Flipflops

At last some photos,not great as I left it too late in the day but better late than ever.

I am really excited about getting started on some new stock...the kids go back to school tommorow and I am just about up to date on my arts work stuff, so this week I will make a belated start on getting my stock ready for the festivals.

Trying to source more flip flops as thats my big new thing this year.

Home At Last

I haven't updated for awhile but I have been busy!!!

Today is a happy day as my mum has finally been allowed home from hospital. She suffered a severe stroke back in January and has been in hospital ever since. This came as a major shock as although there were some warnings last year to see your mum who is not very old, be struck down so severely is horrible. She is regaining strength and is learning to walk again so the future looks good. I am close to my mum and missed her desperately when she was ill but feels like I'm getting my mum back.

I had a tutu workshop and another fairy wing workshop last week plus a fairy dress up party and its half term. Despite this I have managed to get in my workroom (I wish I could call it my studio but I think that would be slightly overegging what is essentially a study!!) I have been making frou frou flipflops and improving on the pillowcase dressses. Will update with photos later today.

Well today I have another busy day with two different workshops planned at Whoosh in Chelmsford. I have a bugs and butterflies in the morning which should be hectic but fun as I'm taking my two youngest with me as well. Then after dashing across town to drop them at the childminders i will be back at Whoosh for a crazy creatures workshop. I have bought some fab and funky fabric for the kids to work with so looking forward to that.

The Whoosh workshops are totally free and are aimed at disadvantaged/vulnerable children. There is more coming up that are booking now so if your interested please contact either me or Whoosh direct at

Work Room Finished

At last I am in my new work room and it is all painted, clean and clutter free! How long for is another matter, to tell the truth I had to retidy it so I could take the pictures. I was making frou frou flip flops yesterday and had the floor covered in ribbon.

Just to give you an idea of what my old study looked like....
