Life's good!


Goodness me, how quick time has flown by! I am sorry for my absence recently, but I have mostly been watching the football and the tennis! Well, kinda.

We had a fab weekend at Silverstone with our friends Chez and Waz and saw some excellent motor biking action – great results for our British riders and a fantastic victory for Lorenzo in the first Silverstone GP for however many years. It was bloody freezing though! I know everyone else enjoyed a scorching weekend, but sat at the track we wore skiing gear, woolly hats and gloves and still felt cold!. Typical British MotoGP! Mind you in a couple of weeks I’ll be moaning about it being too hot in Barcelona! He he!

Check out my shots of the riders at the Saturday evening interviews...

Colin Edwards - Nicky Hayden - Jorge Lorenzo - Bradley Smith and Scott Redding

Otherwise its been business as usually, making cones whilst listening to the football, and sewing some new pictures.
This is what I produced from the green and pink fabrics – what d’ya think?

Off to Wimbledon tomorrow – hard life! :-)

My last craft fair?

Happy Birthday to my auntie Fran! :-)

Busy day yesterday at the craft fair at The Mill Race, Walford – bit of a disappointing event, but Andy and I were kept on our toes trying to stop all my products blowing away in the wind. My friend Becky came to join us and it was lovely to see her. Might be my last craft fair for a while though, as they never quite seem worth the effort – I have sworn now to only attend shows that come with a personal recommendation – so if anyone has any suggestions please let me know! Here’s a couple of pics of the stand –

I learn a lot at these shows though, and we decided on some new areas to focus on – I have been thinking about streamlining for while, and this decided it for me. So watch this space – I may have a big sale very soon!

Catching up on admin today, and writing to suppliers and galleries – if you know any shops or galleries that might like to sell or show my work please get in touch.

Green and pink...makes me think


Been busy this week updating the website – can you spot my changes?! Hope you approve! Also been sorting my stock before the craft fair on Sunday - click here for more details. Looking forward to it!

I am in the process of designing new textile pictures – a neighbour gave me some fabric scraps and they are inspiring me – I’m feeling the green and pink combo.

Have a great weekend!
Love Sally

P.S – for those of you who have been wondering, my cyst operation went well and my eye has just about returned to normal size. I’ll spare you the photos!

Get well soon Vale!

Oh what a weekend! Far too much to fit into one blog entry – kayaking, gardening, murder mystery, bbq, curry, the Mugello Moto GP and oh my goodness Rossi has broken his leg!

I should introduce one of my greatest passions in life – following the Moto GP. I don’t ride a bike due to my vision problems and I would be far too scared anyway (!) but I love to sit on the back of Andy’s. I love the freedom and the exhilaration. And watching the bikes race is so much fun!
Three excellent races this weekend from Mugello, near Florence, Italy: We went there two years ago and it was mental! The Italian fans are just the best – so much noise! Anyway, the big news of the weekend is that Valentino Rossi, legend, had a big off and broke his leg. Possibly out for the rest of the season. We have three trips planned to watch the GPs so that’s a bugger! Hoping he might make it back for his home race in Misano in September – we’ll be there.

Loved the 125cc race on Sunday, and the new class, Moto 2, was fab too – such a lot of overtaking! Exhausting!! No success for the English boys but its Silverstone up next, so let’s hope for a podium from Bradley Smith at least. Check it all out at

As I say, a lovely weekend, except that I turned out to be the murderer at the Wick Club Murder Mystery evening! Ha ha ha!

This afternoon I am off to Cheltenham Hospital to have the cyst removed off my eyelid – VERY scared about this! Will let you know how it goes.

And on the work front I am busy prepping for my sale on Sunday 13th – at The Mill Race pub in Walford, Herefordshire, 12 – 5pm – a food and craft fair – sounds good to me! Come along and say ‘hi’ if you’re looking for a nice day out.

Love Sally

Here comes the sun

Such a gorgeous day!

I have been sat in the sunshine making my lovely confetti cones – coming to my online shop very soon – watch this space!

This is the view from my office window at work. It’s so pretty I thought I would share.

Hope you all have a great weekend,
Love Sally x

I've finally started blogging!

So I am fresh back from a fantastic holiday to New York and Boston and I decided to start my new blog today!

I would love to share my sewing, my life and my thoughts with you all out there so you can enjoy my website and my work all the more – by really getting to know me!

No photos today as I am not looking my best – bit jet lagged – and it’ll take a while to sort out the US snaps, but I plan to share my creations, myself and what I am up to. Just thought I’d start of by saying ‘Hi’ and encouraging you all to follow my posts.

Love from Sally x
