Sorry for the extreme lack of blogging lately. I've been back from Wales for 5 days now and I just haven't had the time or energy to focus on anything.

I had to delay my holiday by a day because I came down with a chest infection and I was on the go the entire week so haven't really had the opportunity to just STOP and GET BETTER. I was back Tuesday; Wednesday was a day filled of packing orders (which by the way, thank you very much! I reached 300 sales while I was gone and I'll be announcing a giveaway/shop special offer on Monday!) and Thursday I was back at the day job, coughing and spluttering away.

Nevertheless, tomorrow at 4pm when I finish work I will promptly be RELAXING and won't stop doing so for 5 days. I really want to try and work on some new designs I've had drawn up for a while, seems like forever since I did a spot of sewing!

Anywho, thank you for sticking with me at this time! I will hopefully have something more substantial to read next week (and don't forget the giveaway!).

Going Away!

Hi all! Just a quick message to let you know that I will be away June 15th-21st. I'm going to Wales again because my dad's getting married (3rd times the charm???). I'm not hugely excited about the whole thing but that's a whole 'nother story. I've also come down with a rotten cold which isn't helping matters.

Nevertheless, I will be keeping the shops open (except for Folksy) but orders will not be sent out until the 22nd when I return. Sorry about that!

More new fabric!

Sorry for not blogging much in the last week. I've been a bit preoccupied by work, family and health issues which I won't bore you with today. I just wanted to show you my recent fabric stash haul that I received from Japan the other day.

It does seem like a lot, but I assure you that some of those pieces are quite small (they were in a taster pack). Can't wait to have a play with them!

Also happy to report I've had my first couple of sales at my Folksy shop which is exciting! I will hopefully add some more items there soon. :)

Finally, I know I haven't done a Seller Spotlight in a while. This feature will be taking a breather until the end of the month and it will return in July! :) If you would like to be featured, either reply to this post (and please include your email address!) or send me an email here: titchables(at)gmail(dot)com!

Shire Horse Centre

Last week my 5 year old step-cousin and her mum came to stay with us and last Thursday we went to the Shire Horse Centre which is in West Runton, near where I live. I will admit right now that horses do actually scare me quite a lot, but the horses we did see were all in their paddock's and I did pluck up the courage to pet a few of them (they were very docile and sleepy on our visit!).

As well as horses the centre is also home to llama's, alpaca's (my favs!), sheep, pigs, bunnies, goats, a whole host of birds, cows, etc etc. I had a great time and I have no shame in admitting I turned into a 5 year old myself walking around.

Sleepy horse!

This sheep really made us giggle. It looked like it had had a really good night on the town!

Alpaca! I love these! They're so odd looking, but cute in their own way and so fluffy!

I can assure you it is not dead. All the animals were very sleepy, I think it was probably the heat!

Bunny cuddle!

Fabric Delivery!

I thought I would treat myself to some new fabric the other day and it arrived yesterday. Can't wait to start using it for some fun projects I've got lined up. I got it from the very lovely Fabric Rehab.

I got some more fabric from Japan in the post today but didn't get a chance to take a picture. More tomorrow!
