It's Sew Fabulous...

Morning folks...woohoooo I am so lovely buddy Anne's gorgeous new shop is now open for business...
44 Main Street
an exciting new retail sewing destination,
where you can create and make in the studio workroom,
 support and inspiration always on hand.
 workshops , sew socials and private tuition.
not forgetting retail therapy
after weeks of painting....laying new flooring and giving the gorgeous shabby chic shop fittings the Annie Sloan treatment....Debbi and I were itching to see the finished result and it's even better than we ever imagined...absolutely fabicilious sewing heaven along with delicious little bits and pieces to buy for all you retail therapy addicts...

Anne will be teaching workshops in the spacious workroom area...a workshop list will be available whether you are an absolute beginner...want to make friends with your sewing machine again or are a dab hand at anything stitchy...there will be something for everyone....Anne is so talented and a great tutor...

 So why don't you pop out to Alford and see for yourselves.
A little "GOOD LUCK" pressie from the cubbyhole crew....
Wishing you all the best Anne in your new adventure....
I know it's going to be a huge ENJOY IT AND LIVE THE DREAM
And once again after a week of skivving off several times to socialise...I am skidding in by the seat of my pants with the DT stuff....fingers crossed I will have something to show you for the challenge over at Penny Black Saturday tomorrow.

    Thank you and your wonderful furry sidekick for the gorgeous candy. It has just arrived and I'm tickled pink. :)

  9. Super lilac colours of your project & I love the way that tailor's dummy image picks up on the real one in the photo. Hope the nose to grindstone doesn't flatten your nose too much - you're the exact opposite of me - don't do skidding very well.
    Have a brilliantly productive day.
