And the winner is...

Congratulations to the lovely Emma @ Me, The Man and The Baby. Her name was pulled from the, blue tin... by my lovely assistant Jessica. Emma, I'll be sending your handmade lavender heart in the post this week, once I've got your details.

Well, we had a lovely halfterm break from school.

We chilled out, walked the dog...

and I did some much needed sewing. I am now making matching hairbands to go with my skirts...

Check out the face on the model! I think she may have had enough of hearing me say "Stand still will you?!"

I am also working on Lavender Birds (rather than hearts) and summer dresses, which I'll fill you in on later in the week.

Big news for me...I made my first sale...

...3 SKIRTS!!! Woo-hoo!

All in all I had a productive week last week, I'm hoping for the same this week...with a little less rain and snow...and perhaps...some sunshine...?

Here's to wishful thinking!

What are you wishing for this week?

Take care,

Blogiversary giveaway...

Happy Valentines Day to you all!

And Happy Blogiversary to me!

I really can't believe that a year ago today I started this amazing, enlightening journey.

I have made some wonderful blogland friends and learned a lot about women and how resilient and enterprising they can be.

In honour of this day I thought it appropriate to do my first giveaway. And because it's the day of lurve and I'm expressing my new found passion for fabric and all things crafty, I decided to give away my heart...

...made of calico, stuffed with English lavender and rice and topped off with an antique button - oh, and full of love!

For a chance to win, all you have to do is post a comment and become a follower (if you're not one already) Don't forget to leave your email address. Do excuse my amateurish first giveaway attempt but I'm not particularly techie, so all entries will be put into one pot and the winner will be picked by one of my gorgeous assistants; Jess, Max or Eva. There will be photo evidence of the event ;o)

The competition is for anyone, anywhere in the world, I will pay postage, and closes on Friday Feb 19th at 12 Midday GMT.

Have a fun week!

Little Bee; starting to fly...

Oh, well hello!

How have you been?

I'm sorry I haven't been around's just...I've kind of been immersed in this cutting...measuring...designing...sewing world. It's been fun, and frustrating.

Anyway, here I am beavering away and I realised that I hadn't been spending anywhere near enough time with my friends. Actually while you're here, I was wondering if you could give me some advice?

It's really just a matter of opinion I guess, but I think it will help me know which styles will be more popular for my new clothing line "Little Bee".

So, of the skirts pictured in this post, which would you say is your favourite and why?

Thanks so much for your help, you guys rock!

By the way, it's my 1 year blogging anniversary coming up very soon (I can't believe it) for which I am planning a give away - my very first! So, keep checking back for more info.

Have a fabulous week, won't you?
