Oh my goodness, it's over a week since my last blog post. I've had a very busy and productive week, both with Pretty Fabrics and Trims and also many hours spent happily crafting. Autumn is most definitely my favourite time of year, I love wrapping up and going for walks, coming back to a warm cup of tea and maybe a piece of cake, although honestly, I really am trying very hard to eat less cake!! I have been busy working on a little felt pattern inspired by my daughters love of fairies and pixie's. After quite a few prototypes I am rather happy with Tilly the Toadstool Pixie and her little portable house, with it's hidden little pocket for when she needs a nap. Poppy loves it too which is great!
As I sat working, I found myself reflecting how the view from my window has changed over the last few months and indeed how much things have changed for both myself and my family since I embarked on my Grand Plan. I now make time to do little things with my children, for example, the other morning, as I drew the blinds in my living room, I noticed loads of spiders webs had formed overnight. So there we were all of us in our PJ's at seven in the morning on our front lawn watching this spider industriously weave its web. When it was time for school, an hour and half later, it was completed. Before the Grand Plan, I have to be honest and say, that I would have plonked the children in front of the TV and I would have been tapping away on the computer or already have started sewing. An improvement, wouldn't you say.
PS there is still a few hours of 30% Thursday left over Pretty Fabrics and Trims, so please do pop along a take a peek!
