It's good to be back, hello everyone. I've missed you all x

Well here it is the reason I've been away for so long.



A huge order, I've been working my bum off hehe! up most nights until midnight. So I can only say sorry for not keeping up with you all. I have popped on every now and then to read a couple of posts and see how you are. And I see that most of you are just as busy. Isn't this time of year great. I am loving it. And have now taken on a couple more orders.
Also got a phone call last night saying that I have been chosen to have a stall at the Christmas fair in Maidstone a couple of days before my birthday. So I'm hoping to get a lot more stock made up and ready for that. Will be a fun day, as I'm next to my best mate Claire from www.madeinpixieland.co.uk and I can't wait.


Half term as come and gone and the girls have been the best at this mad time. So we thought we all deserved a little weekend break. And Ben still had his 30th birthday helicopter ride to take.

So off we went on Friday night to Cheltenham. It was a good drive no traffic at all and we arrived at 9.30pm. A first for us, it's normally about eleven before we get there. So the girls back to bed and a nice hot drink for us. We sat and chatted to Ben's mum, until we where all sleepy again.

The next day we got the meet baby Ava and her uncle Ben got all broody. I'll pop a photo of her on here sometime soon. I'd better ask first. She's a real cutie and I have to say I'd think about having one more. But I'd love to be married first. I still live in hope for that big question to be asked.

That afternoon all of us set off for Ben's birthday treat. And he just loved it. I couldn't get any really good photos of him flying but I did record it all for him. I think he's now been bitten by the bug, as he's been playing flying games on the computer. Bless him "ok honey one day if we win the lotto, I'll get you a helicopter" x

The girls enjoyed watching him and Molly now tells everyone my Daddy went in a helicopter. lol

So it was a good weekend, Grandma babysat and we went out for a nice drive. And to top off the weekend, I went into my favourite shop in Cheltenham www.rosablue.co.uk and bought a few bits and Penelope the owner said that the pegs I made her had sold within a couple of weeks and she was very pleased because someone bought one of her own handmade peg bags to go with a pack. So she placed a bigger order with me and I left with a even bigger smile on my face. And some goodies of my own too. ;) I'll pop a photo on here soon. Checkout her website, she makes everything herself. In the most beautiful fabrics.

All in all it was a very nice weekend and I'm glad we had a break. It done me some good I came back refreshed and I got the huge order all finished and it's now on it's way to my customer. Now I can get on with the others and prepare for the fair.

Thank you to all of you that have left lovely comments on my posts and I will catch up with you all very soon.

And one last thank you to Jennifer from Buttercup & Roses for my beautiful heart she sent, it is hanging with my hearts on the fireplace. And looks lovely. Thanks sweetie your a real honey. I hope your teeth are all better now. x

Hugs.

Wow, looks like you've been really busy. But glad to see you've all been having some fun and relaxation too. So pleased that your lovely things are selling so well. Not surprised as they are really cute. Now I have my flat to myself and I'm getting it sorted I need to find a lovely place to put your pegs. I want to string them up somewhere so I can display pretty postcards. The lovely wooden spoon sits in a jug next to my oven. I don't use it though, it's just looking decorative!

Hi Catherine,
Wow I don't know how you manage to do all that,you really are amazing.
I know your things are gorgeous and I'm sure that this is the start of things really taking off for you.
I'm so glad Ben had a good time.
Forget the lottery win,your sales may mean you can afford more flights for all of you very soon.
So glad things are going well.
Love to you all Kat xx
