You only live beautifully!

I had a huge weekend with Market Stalls and Guy Fawkes celebrations.
I had such fun on my stall and I met some lovely people.
With the two Market Stalls that I had I sold 3/4 of my stock. 
Which was wonderful. 
But now I am wigged out as I have so many markets booked between now and Christmas 
so I must sew like crazy. 
But as my friend pointed out this is a good problem to have.
I missed doing this Moment on Sunday but here is Master O with a wonderful candle and candle holder that he made at the Michael Park School Fair. 
I just love the colours.

Recently I went to the bank to set up a business account. 
I had a lovely young man Andrew run through everything with me. 
On his computer he had written a quote.
"In making your life don't forget to Live it " 
What a wonderful quote and so true. 
I think I need to be mindful of this in the coming weeks with all  my 
sewing and markets and family life.

With all this sewing to do I decided to spend yesterday working on something new.
I have just got a great book from the Library called " Stash Happy" by Amanda Carestia that has a cute Whale pattern in it. 
Here are my Whales:


I will not be loading many things to sell on line over the next few weeks as I will be concentration on my up and coming markets. 
Should you see something you would like to buy on my blog please do email me on
