We love Terry

My Darling and I have a thing about monkeys, we went to Monkey World twice last year on holiday. I don't know what it is about our Simian friends that we love, we just do. So to add to our ever increasing monkey family my I introduce Terry.

Made by the wonderful Sian of Sianburys. Thanks you Sian for letting Terry come live with us.

Off to the Big Smoke

My Darling Husband and I are off down to London tomorrow, to see Kevin Smith at the O2 arena. I am expecting to be in pain on Wednesday with laughing so much.

I don't really like visiting London, it's strange but I find it claustrophobic. Anyway I will be dragging the Darling to as many fabric and haberdashery shops as I can manage tomorrow afternoon. I probably won't buy much (I'm think option paralysis will be a big problem) but I will drool a lot.

Introducing Betty & Belinda Bucket Bag

I've been busy sewing this weekend and seting up a Folksy shop, all so that Betty and Belinda can go off and explore the world. Lets hope they get the chance to have a big baggy adventure.

People say the nicest things

So my bag in the Bag Swap arrived safely and here are the lovely things Annelies has said about it.

Thanks, now I can't wait for mine to arrive.

The strange things I do in the name of amateur dramatics

This is a bag I made for my darling a few months ago (it, sorry she, got a lot of use this summer). Originally she was a pair for Fluffrick's shorts, but the zip had broken and there were a few paint stains, so they were destined for the bin until I had a brainwave. So Simone was born:

As there are rather a lot of bags residing at our house we tend to give them names, a request of "Darling can you get me my green bag" is likely to result in five different bags being dropped in your lap. However, "The biscuits are in Simone" and everyone is happy.

Handbag Swap

I am taking part in the Bag a Holic bag swap as hosted by the lovely Made By Petchy.

Here is a sneak peek of the bag I have sent to Annelies in Belguim

Taking back the blog...

My better half, darling Mr Fluffrick has started up a new blog over at Wordpress ( I think he is sulking with blogger), so I decided to claim back this blog for myself.

Here I can talk about what I’m sewing / refashioning. This now includes making costumes for "The Heeley Hoofers".

I can mull over my embryonic notion of opening an Etsy/Folksy shop. Do I have the time to blog and sew and cook and fuss our terrific terrier and rehearse and oh yes go to work. I could easily give that going to work business a miss, except for the fact they pay me, oh well.

And just because no post is complete without a picture, here is the terrific terrier, the lovely Bonnie.
