Folksy Listings and Some New Stash

I've been working away at listing some new items on my Folksy shop this weekend.  I still have more to list but I'd been asked to put a few things on by my next door neighbour, whose daughter in law had one of my bags and has been asked by all her friends in Cambridge where she got it from - nothing ventured and all that...

This was the bag she had, I liked doing the applique on

it and am planning a couple more applique designs on some nice strong canvas I just bought.

I'm doing a giveaway on my other blog but don't seem to have attracted many takers - go an have a wee look and see if you're interested...

As I sit here blogging, I'm listening to 'Round the Horne' as I copy it from a cassette to my PC for Hubby.  Unfortunately we no longer have the technology for playing cassettes, except for one side of the old hi fi which still works - and I don't want to lose all the comedy radio shows we have.  I've already done two hours of Dad's Army, Two hours of Hancock and two hours of John Shuttleworth - I'm all comedied out now really!  Hopefully I'll be able to educate Hubby in the art of using an MP3 player so he can listen to them all again.  I've used this great little free program called Audacity which you can download really fast.

I just paid a visit to the Fabric Guild for some new stash.  I don't go very often but find its well worth buying up a job lot when I'm there.  I'll be posting about that later.
