new things

So I have been planning to write this post about ten times all with different content But, no longer am I holding onto the summer as it is truly autumn here in Devon, no longer am I manically harvesting chutney making plum ketchup making lady, and no longer am I crazily getting everything together to start the new school year! In fact he time has passed and we are set tiling in nicely.

What I did find in the last busy weeks was I was desperate to start a new sewing project, but I had to stay focused all the other stuff. What that did though was give me plenty of time to dream and plan, and that's just what the beginning of a new season needs.

What did I come up with though well lots, big and small, gifts me and others. Here is a little sneak preview of the shopping I have been doing :

And where did I buy all of these lovely goodies, my new favourite shop Trixie Lixie this is a lovely shop in Cardiff, and brilliant online shop too! I ordered and received my lovelies in three days ! So many great offerings here with opportunities to show off your own creations too. Great service and very friendly, I will be doing lots more shopping here.

AS for what I bought, well some secrets will need to be kept, But I am planning to make myself an autumn Laurel very soon.

I know many of you are planning new seasons, and there are still a few summer offerings which I am enjoying too. I hope you have ll had a lovely weekend. x x x
