SCHOOLS OUT FOR SUMMER...

Well, that's it for another School year and six weeks to enjoy before we have to start it all over again !

I managed to finish off the the little pouches that I made for the children's teachers...


 I hope that they liked them....



I think this Amy Butler fabric one was my favourite...

So, what have I planned for the next few weeks ?..

A bit more of this....



....name tape sewing, I have always used the sew in woven labels, but now having three lots of uniform to sew labels into I am questioning why I have never gone for iron on !...

I need to update my Folksy shop and list some new stock, as well as contacting some 'real' shops that have been expressing an interest in my 'stuff'.

But the best thing is not to be bound by school runs, and not having to be any particular place by any particular time....
