conkers or just bonkers....

...sometimes I fall in and out of love with this blog....maybe it's the time of year ( my favourite ) but I just seem to want to be anywhere but looking at a screen...

I want to be outside walking in the fresh air...kicking orange leaves...finding spikey conkers...(mum of sons)...with pink cheeks and cold fingers. chasing a little dog with legs that never tire.and then inside for hot chocolate, a magazine, a pile of crafty stuff and my sketchbook....

I've made some things for home...

and some cushions for the shop

I got new fairy lights  :)

and found some fabrics that are a bit different to my usual ones....

...as well as my old  favourites....

so if I'm not here much at the moment... you know where I am :)

this week......

thrifting...birthdays..painting...wallpapering...chopping...not much sewing...
lots of blowing noses... thinking...drinking hot chocolate...making soup...more thinking...
eating birthday cake...crochet...a bit more thinking and lots more blowing of noses...and even more thinking....( too much thinking me thinks )

our #2 turned 10 so I made  Wacky Races bunting :)

our #1 needed new bedroom things :)

I bought new yarns and fabrics for some Christmas projects :)

I painted and papered an old spice rack :)

and a little thrifted wooden house :)

I hung my shelf on the wall :)

and to clear my head I decided to have a big sort out..I have been ruthless!
(clear shed = clear head)....so there will be bundles of vintage fabrics and wallpapers in the littleteawagon shop this week...

I'm changing a few things too, over here and in the shop so things might look a bit odd or missing 'till I get them sorted.. Thank you to all your entries for the Mollie Makes Book giveaway...I am looking forward to seeing who wins on Thursday...(still time to enter - see previous post )
