October madness!

Hello!  Hasn't the last week been glorious! I have been looking at the beautiful weather out of the window in my sewing room as I have been whizzing away on my machine for all my fairs and events in the next few weeks! October has only just started and is turning out to be my busiest month! 

On Sunday I was really excited to be at the Lincoln Wedding Fayre with Robin Red Bunting Hire, meeting lots of lovely brides who really liked my bunting!

I have been tweaking my tooth fairy pillows (removing buttons and anything that could potenially be a hazard to little ones and substituting different appliqued designs), and completing custom orders of these and sending them out!  They are featured on the new website Dorothy and Theodore.

 And I've had lots of fun with my collection of embroidery hoops producing some appliqued embroidery hoop art, here are just a couple, I am planning some christmas ones too!

I have two craft events this weekend, one for Macmillan this Friday, and a WI all day craft market on Saturday and then the following Friday a ladies christmas shopping evening so I am busy busy busy prepping for those. Phew! Following a trip to Batman live the other week, my son has asked me to make him The Scarecrow costume from Batman for his School Halloween disco! (At least it looks fairly simple!).

I have joined a 12 week fit and firm programme at the gym focussing on nutrition and exercise,  tonight there is new Hulahooping and Zumba class in our village hall that I have signed up to for six weeks, I have never managed to hula hoop so am hoping not to embarass myself too much!   Harvest festival, general taxi-ing children around, washing and ironing, helping my mum in her house sale and purchase, designing my husbands graphics & promotional literature for a trade fair he has in a couple of weeks!

It's good to be busy, but am starting to wonder how I am going to fit everything in!

October is definitely a month of madness for me this year!



  1. Wow, will there be time for sleeping too? You are going to be very busy. Good luck with the exercise classes. I love Zumba.
    Your new products look fab as ever.

  3. Hello again. I only bought the dotty bag yesterday so it is a current line. They are sold as laundry bags and I bought the large. It is about 45cm when stood upright. Hope that helps.
