I couldn't believe my eyes yesterday when I logged into my Folksy shop, I had 5 sales, Yipeeee!!! I had been contacted early in the week by a lady who was starting a party plan business selling handmade items to see if I would be interested in her selling some of my wares. I said yes and thought that would probably be the last I heard of it as I have had enquires before but they have never led to anything. I was so pleased yesterday when she emailed to say she had bought the items out of my shop. Her first party is in September so watch this space for an update.

Today I have sold two embroidered towels on Folksy and I have been featured on Friends of Folksy blog, what a week this has been.

Seeing as it rained again today I managed to get a bit more sewing done. I used a pair of hubby's old jeans for this project, thought I'd have a go at recycling. I embroidered a mini (we're big on minis in this house) onto a piece of denim then made a patchwork cushion using denim and a piece of spotty fabric I had in my stash. I was really pleased how it turned out. What do you think?
