Hello, seems ages since   I updated this blog, a lot has been happening in my life since the new year....    

Today I have been taking photos of new handmade ragdolls to update the website, as it was a lovely day I have done this in the garden.

I shall also be updating the event pages, this week,   so   visitors know where to find us this year in   Derbyshire   .

I have introduced new sewing kits so mums, aunts and grannies can spend time with their little ones helping them create their own doll, check out the new items page.    


Workshop Progress 3

The OH has been busy building whilst I have been labouring and providing regular refreshments. Oh yes and today I have sanded down and undercoated the window frames.

after a very busy and fun weekend in London back to reality - that being a broken dishwasher :(, ironing :( and an empty fridge :(. So went to gym early, rang repair man, shopped, then washed & ironed. Finished all the stitcheries for Ashover on Wednesday all pressed & ready to sell :)

sewing machine away at last and stitcheries just waiting for sticks and string - nearly packed - going for a girls weekend in London and dinner at the Ivy tommorrow night.

a day of sewing for Ashover Show new style dolls nearly finished and a big pile of stitcheries waiting for sticks and string - a productive day - now wine time


A busy day
