I'm back

Hello everyone,

Yes I know its been so long since I last blogged.  It has been so busy at work I just haven't had the energy for much else really.

Today I have got the jumpers out, yes its that time of year when summer is definitely coming to a close.

We have a new resident on the farm, he sits on the same post outside our kitchen window between 7.30 and 7.45pm every evening,  a beautiful little owl.  We have a resident tawny owl but this is a little owl, apparently quite rare.  He is just magnificent.  We now plan our supper around watching for the Ollie to arrive.  We are so lucky.

I have had to buy a new printer, oh my goodness its so difficult trying to buy something like that, so many to choose from and so many features, I just want a printer that prints a good image I said frustratingly to the assistant, I don't want to know if it stands on its head whilst printing A3.  Anyway I managed to get one, and now I have no idea how it works, its a copier/fax/scans/prints/A3/A4/double sided, but strangely doesn't make the tea.  Seriously its quite good I think.

I haven't painted any furniture of late, but some new designs of napkins, these would make fantastic Christmas presents, (yes its coming) and postage is free to UK and a bargain at £14.95 for four or £7.95 for two.

I also have been busy making some cotton coasters, the same as the napkins but coaster size, these are just super presents at £4.95 for four.

I have a new shop I am supplying called Scotts Garden Supplies in Congresbury, super shop and a lovely cafe called Heather's right next door who make the most perfect cuppa and cake.  I am supplying old recycled pots painted and designed exclusively for Patricia of Scotts, I love the shop and wish her well in her new venture.

More napkin designs

Shortly I will be adding some new items to my crafting empire, some best tea towels, best as in the ones you lay over your aga when you have guests staying to make your kitchen look posh.  These will have stencilled typography on them, also burlap table runners, trouble is I love them myself so want to keep them all.

Last weekend was epic, on Saturday I marshaled for the Tour of Britain, up on Dartmoor, I was posted on the KOM2 just outside Princetown, and it was great fun, what a huge turnout and everyone had such fun.  And I was on the tele, how exciting, although TV does nothing for your figure.  So if anyone watched stage 7 of the Tour of Britain I was the one on the left with a fluorescent safety tabard trying to look cool. In fact I looked like a giant space hopper.
Then a long drive down to Sussex to stay with good friends (thanks Diana and Duncan) to attend the Goodwood Revival on Sunday.  What a day it was, pictures to follow.  I dressed up as a 1940's land girl and Mr P as a Naval Commander, it truly was a epic weekend.

So things have been rather hectic around here, but I do promise to blog more.  I do promise really.

Have a great weekend
