Valentines flowers and lots more sewing

Well I am doing very well here and making the effort to blog more regular, so I do hope someone is reading this !!??.  Valentines day has been and gone, and I got a card and chocolates and these lovely flowers that still look really fresh.

I went to Dewsbury market with a friend  last week, using my free bus pass for a long journey for the first time, up to now I have only been using it to nip into town. Anyway it was quite a good market and had a large haberdashery stall where I bought these pretty laces, which lend themselves beautifully to making dolls clothes and were very reasonably priced. The lilac lace has glitter on the picot edges but hasn't come out on the photo very well.
Last week I have continued to make good progress in sewing for and stocking the shop, and was working on the American Girl doll range. 

 She's being very good here holding on to all the pieces I have to sew up yet.
Here is a little hooded Jacket in a lovely fine floral corduroy fabric. So I do feel a very positive productive feeling this week, got a lot done. and here are some of the finished articles!

If you want to see the rest you can look here in my shop.
Today I popped into town for a few household supplies, it was a lovely sunny morning, still cold but so nice to see the sun showing itself.  I came home and did some chores, then got out my fabrics teat I have recently bought to make a start on a custom order for a customer.
Any Ideas what it's going to be? I'll give you a clue it is a charector for what, if i'm not mistaken was one of Disney's first cartoon feature films.  If anyone wants to know I will tell you in my next blog post, might even put a photo of the finished product on .
