Going slightly mad...

Well i really must confess i am already slightly mad but this week is just pushing me further into that crazy world of stress and tiredness.. a great combination. Alice said i should post a photo of myself. (as i have already put one of her up). Well i really don't ever look good in a photo..my husband always says i look better in real life as i have a very animated face.. maybe he is being kind. The ones Alice took yesterday do portray a kind of craziness and are also a little blurry ( a blessing maybe ). Well here goes....


Sewing on Alice's trusty Bernina. They are great old machines. I have one too from the 1970's . It was my mother in laws but i inherited it about 5 years ago. They really are fantastic.


We have finished our new shoppers and i can reveal some of our other designs...


My favourite are the peas

and the onions.


And here are the cherries.



We also have strawberries and carrots as well as the apples.
You can tell i have been inspired by my veg growing this year. We have had a lot of rocket and lettuce so far, along with the raspberries but are now waiting for the potatoes, carrots and onions. The dwarf beans are coming on well too thanks to the rain. And this is an exciting sight... the cherries ripening....



Just one week now to Hampton Court so if i can get on the computer (my man is doing our website most evenings) then i will do a kind of countdown.
So today, Sunday is day 8. and i will count down to day 0 ( lift off!) which is Monday 2nd July... our final dressing of the stand and then the Gala evening from 6pm.

Yesterday we brought the paint, some high visibility vests for the get in (very sexy) and sourced some shelving. Today we have been making more stock and i have put together a press release (awaiting Alice's approval).
Tommorrow,.. well tomorrow is another day with lots more to do!
until then...

I'm sure those bags are going to be very popular. I think my favourite would be the peas, though I do like the way you've done the onion.

The bags are great! You don't look mad! I'm sure you'll be a huge success!

remember to drink lots of tea and eat lots of cakes - it works for me at stressful and busy times!
the bags are wonderful - the peas get my vote too x

Love the bags - especially the peas, they'll go down a treat!

Good luck with it all, as Tracy says, lots of tea and cakes!

Some of my favourite lino-print designs are the vegetables - I have some lovely onions and carrots, perhaps I'm a vegetable obsessive?!

Good luck with Hampton Court, it sounds fantastic! Can't wait to see photos :)

I think they're all fantastic but I think that the onion is my favourite!
Good luck with it all!
