A nice surprise

Well what can I say, had a pleasant surprise when I got home today, some velvet I had ordered a little while ago that I have specially tie dyed arrives ahead of schedule and the colours are gorgeous. The lovely lady that dye's them lives in the beautiful county of Norfolk, in a village called Gooderstone. The velvet is really scrumptious and soft and the colours Sandra has done for me are lovely. Sandra has even dyed one in a turquoise colour for a special bag that I am going to make for a friend Joanne who takes part in re-enactments, Joanne also makes her own outfits to suit the period they are doing. Tomorrow Joanne is off to Bath on a Jane Austin weekend and again has made hers and her husbands outfit, well hello Mr Darcey, I am envious !!!!



  1. Austen reenactments? So jealous! I'm stopping by from Kelly's. Welcome to blogland. :)

  3. Hi there! Its always nice to meet a new blogger. I love your scissors keeps, they are gorgeous! Gotta tell you off though, you mention gorgeous dyed velvet in this post and there are no pics!! NO PICS!!! Thats so cruel, we need pics to drool over, lol. Maybe I should ask very nicely. Please Connie, may we see some pics of that lovely velvet you were talking about? Can we have a link to the lady who dyes the stuff? x

  4. Thank you everyone for making me feel welcome, I am looking forward to keep in touch, as for the Velvet, watch this space, but only have a phone number for Sandra.

  5. Hi Connie,
