Happy Post Day

It’s been a busy few days in the madhouse with me taking on the role of Nurse Polly. Pluto seems to be getting better, but we are going back to the vets today to get one of his stitches checked. The monsters now both have stinking colds and I think Monster No2 is teething so you can imagine the snotty grizzly mess he is 🙁 then to add to the poorly brigade Sean and I have caught the cold too.

Thankfully we have still managed to get out a bit and Friday night we went to meet Monster no1s nursery friend in the pub (with his parents of course). While we were chatting it came up in conversation that the village is having a festival on 7th July and the nursery friends mum was organising it. Somehow this has led to me having a stall!! Over the weekend I busily checked through my stash and shopped for supplies as I now have just under two weeks to get myself organised.

Today the postman delivered just what I had been waiting for, my online orders from Fabric Inspirations and Backstitch. I would thoroughly recommend these shops as the delivery time is always fast and the fabrics are fabulous.

Look at the lovely packaging from Alice at Backstitch. These fabrics are Lu Summers Summersville Town, Lu Summers Scandi and Loulouthi Triflora.

I did pick up a few more fabrics from Hometown in Rochester and some Amy Butler beauties in the sale in John Lewis

I plan on making make-up bags, zip pouches, purses, iPad and Kindle cases. I might make some bibs and shopping bags too if I get the time and knowing me I will probably think of a few other things as I go along. Mmm keyrings maybe?

As you can imagine my quilts have had to go on hold but once everything is ready for the festival I will be back to my floral squares again.

What have you got on the go this week? Why not leave a comment sharing your WIPs for the week.

If you are free on the 7th July and local come and say hi at The Aylesford Festival
