Schools out for summer......

Holidays are here, kids had their last day on Monday, so they are delighted so am I but apprehensive too as many other Mummys are, it is a lonnnnnng holiday until September. We will fill it with camping jaunts, days out, rainy afternoons in the cinema,Country fetes, baking and make and do, oh and me moaning that the house is a pig sty and I can not hear myself think!!

I have been very busy making lampshades and sourcing fabrics and trying different designs, so far my lampshade range which I will be selling will be Cath Kidston, Kate Forman, Cabbages and roses and Laura Ashley and any vintage fabric I can get my little mitts on. So this is what I have made so far, I will not put them in shop yet waiting on more fabrics but if you are interested in any of the following ones sure let me know, I would love to hear from you!!!
