Who am I to disagree...

Hello my friends out there.
Thank you for your continued support and friendship.

Just a few snippets I wanted to tell you about...

The lovely Katie of madebyhandonline created this advertisement for
Elle Magazine,
with a vintage theme,
which will be on sale first week December.  
So very happy Katie chose to use one of my purses for part of the ad!
Lets hope it brings lots of new custom to madebyhand, as in this world of mass production,
it is a joy to visit a web site supporting handmade pieces.

Talking of handmade,
 67 brooches created for
9-13th November
Business Design Centre,
They will be with the wonderful Jacquie,
on her stand... 
So if you are going to the fair, please stop by and say 'hello' to Jacquie,
she is a superstar. x 

I made a hole in my finger, I did so much stitching :-)

Onto other handmade things.
Purses made with lovely old linen, with tatting and embroidery.

There is always a needlecase or two, to be shown here and this post is no exception.

Well that's me for today.
thank you for stopping by. x

Wahoo! Such wonderful news.
Its a treat to see all your things grouped like that, your photos are so clear, being the proud owner of some of your work, they really capture the detail and whimsey.
