I'm Back..

I'm back :-) I have not been anywhere really, things just got a little hectic there for a while. 

I was writing about all the things that I have been up to when I realized it sounded like those school essays 'what did you do in the summer holidays' great as a writing practice but boring to read so I am just going to tell you what I have been doing today the rest can wait.

Today I have been trying to photograph my christmas goodies for my shop everything was going well then it got a little dark .......... so will have to wait till another day.

Superheroes and their pants !!!

For ages I have wanted to make some purses with pants on them....hehe I love that word makes me feel like a naughty child, anyway as I said pants on purses, sometimes ideas bubble around in my head half formed waiting....and then a series of random thoughts come together to form an idea. These new items were a combination of thoughts about,

blue sky fabric I bought, 

a documentary on Salvador Dali, 

 my love of superhero films,

and balloons,

Hope they make you smile :-) they have given me great joy in their making and all will be working their way in to my shops this week.

W.I.P Scarfs

I am working on some new ideas this week, my local fabric shop stocks the most wonderful collection of dyed muslin, about 20 different colours in total every time I am in the shop I wander over and have a look trying to think up ideas for them. 
It finally came to me last week while making a present for my Mum.....Scarfs the muslin is so soft and light and would make great scarfs for all the year round. 
So far I have narrow hemmed a strip and washed it to soften it a bit more and am now appliqueing little colourful hearts all over.

Its going well at the moment will post a picture when its finished.

A good idea in principle !

Went to visit my brother ( he is a wedding photographer) this weekend and picked up this beauty

My son and myself are clubbing together to buy it off him as he has just got a new one. My son is studying A level photography and hopes to continue it at degree level and I thought it would be a good step up for taking photos of items to sell, a good idea in principle the only problem is it scares the pants off me :-/  I do have a little knowledge, a GCSE in photography but that was the old film based system........help, where do I start !!! so many buttons and settings.

A disjointed week

Its been a funny old week with out much time to catch up, I have been busy with a wholesale order and some new designs, my brother is getting married in June so I have started to think about getting  a dress I am finding this a bit of a challenge as I am a jeans and a t-shirt kind of gal and dresses are a bit of a mystery ...and also I have had a health issue that needed to be dealt with ( I am ok :-) its all sorted now and everything appears clear ) just saying all that make me realize how busy its been. 
Well its Friday now and I am looking forward to a nice long weekend with my family and a bit of
Rand R.

My Folksy Friday this week was going to be about more of my favourite things but I am going to be a bit cheeky ;-) and change it to reduced items in my folksy shop, its getting a bit congested and I just want to tidy up ready for some new things so here's your chance to get a DinkyDaisy item for a fab price.


This is just some of the items reduced to see more and prices go to my Folksy shop

It's also the last day of 15% off any item in my own shop  (you will need the code new001)

Hope you all have a lovely bank holiday weekend
