I made the very first thing with my new sewing machine, it worked like a dream, from a new book full of simply gorgeous ideas and inspiration.
A material heart door hanger scented with Rosemary from my garden and finished with vintage buttons.
That night Jake had cut his head open and scared me half to death and as I sewed his sister came back downstairs on his command seeking the plush toy Captain Banicles, unheard of, unprecedented, she loves him really you know, she was scared for him.
I eased away from my gung-ho attitude of creation and made it carefully cause, well you know I am setting up a little business, selling fabrics, buttons and ribbons. Crafts and gifts on the side.
It’s going to be called Homemaker Helper and the creations are by Arty farty.
I am contacting suppliers, creating an eBay shop and so on. Watch this space.
