2 reasons to smile

2 reasons to smile

OK, I have many reasons to smile, but yesterday, out of the blue, I had 2 more.

Do you recognise one of these? (BIG HINT – Brenda Ballerina!)

Abakhan September winners

Abakhan September winners

Well, would you believe it, I had won myself a £20 voucher to spend at Abakhan!

And then, prompted by a friend who told me I might want to look in my Love Sewing magazine, I saw this

Freya, in the kimono I made her!

A double whammy!

Love, Lucie xx

About lovelucie1

I cannot sit without something in my hands to sew, crochet, sketch etc. This becoming something of an addiction. In fact, I start to get twitchy if I am stationary somewhere, waiting for an appointment, waiting for my daughter, away with work, without some project to keep my hands busy. Minutes wasted make me anxious. This blog logs my progress to raise funds through my creations to feed my textile habbit.

    • Now there’s a question. Being brought up on the North Wales coast in the days before internet, Abakhan was our nearest fabric retailer. My mum and I spent many a Sunday morning in there. I think I’ll have more enjoyment choosing in person than over the net so I’ll hold onto it until my next trip to see my parents.
