Do you remember the wasp spider I blogged about here? well I just kept thinking about her yellow and black colouration. So much has it been on my mind that I am being drawn to yellow and black fabrics now and when I found this floral abstract in Blendworths I was just leaping about the place. I think it has some linen in it but I cant be sure - is there a way to tell? It feels like a blended mix ... almost a bark cloth even. Anyway its lovely and I have enough to make a couple of things from it. Today I made a 'buzz bag' , so named in honour of my garden spider and I have popped it in my shopforsale.
I also want to say a BIG thank you to everyone who entered my booty giveaway. If I can be candid - it wasn't a tremendous success and its just as well I am thick skinned enough to continue blogging. I am not sure why some blogs do well and others pale into insignificance but then we can't all be Attic 24's or Crazy Mom's I suppose. I had hoped that I would get a dozen or so suggestions but hey ho I like the ones I got ... we had Blippers, Chuboots, Kozys, Chubblies and Sloots as suggestions. I liked them all! So who to give the booty giveaways too? Well guess what - you are all going to get a pair! I have the 3 'development' pairs that are shown in the blog to giveaway if any of you can use these sizes BUT I will make bespoke pairs if they are no good for you. I know Bilbo who suggested Chubblies wanted 10" ones ... so you will get a special pair. But can you other ladies please contact me and let me know what size you would like too and an snail mail address I can post them to please. To get a size measure your feet in inches from heel to toe and add 1".
As a reminder the 3 booties in the picture are : The red pair are BIG! and will fit an XL adult size (12" toe to heel) , the green are child large (8.5" toe to heel) and the pink Infant large (5.5" toe to heel)
