Handmade Monday No. 86
The weather has been appalling dog would not go out and appeared to be super glued to the floor, finally DH and I hauled him out, all the way round the village he looked so sorry for himself, never mind that we were getting equally wet and the more he dragged his paws the longer the walk took and the wetter we all became.
Never mind onto the crafting front, won some fantastic Charlie Chaplin fabric on ebay, supposedly for the school bags but as paid more than I normally do it may get used for other things and the first is a trio of wristlets with a vintage camera embroidered on one side.

Mad Hatter Tea Cosy
I love Alice in Wonderland and had the idea of a linen tea cosy with the Mad Hatter and a 'Drink Me; label. As I tend to make in 3's (think this is something to do with gardening I blame Mr Titchmarsh, lol) 2 more to go but hopefully these would have been done and dusted by the time this post appears.
Have also bought a pretty 'Tea for One' set to use as props and my single cup of afternoon tea but what am I going to make for it? next week all may be revealed.
A local networking group open their online shop doors this week and what better way to network than to join in. Although in it's infancy feel that being local this is a good move, I attend my first meeting in Farnham of a new group on the 25th October, will let you know how I get on. Networking is a brilliant way to reach potential customers plus enjoy a business chat with in this case other women in business.
We can all learn from each other and also help each other out, business is not about me, me, me but sharing what you know and learn with others. Groups are always stronger than an individual but sadly some business people never realise this, some forget those that have helped them to greatness along the way. Remember those that have helped you and lend a helping hand to someone who is struggling.
