My work

Hello lovely bloggy friends , hope you are all well and enjoying the last half term before Christmas ,I really do love this time of year, the build up to the big day  and all the decorations and twinkly lights ,it seems to come round quicker every year
It is also a busy time of year for my little business too with a couple of Christmas fairs planned so been busy making these for my shows
I do love my work ,especially working from home which fits in with my little brood ,I would of course love to have a shop with a tea rooms but I know it would cost too much and also take up all of my time and be away from home a lot so for now I am  very happy with what I do and would consider it more when the children have flown the nest  to keep my me busy which is a long way off and by then I will probably be too old , tired and have even less money !! but it is a nice dream
In our previous home I had a separate room for my work but our new home is smaller so I have a corner of the conservatory which is lovely , very hot in summer and chilly in winter but it is my little space and I love it and spend all my free time here making all these
Loving these collages my daughter taught me how to do ,I do have a website through vistaprint  but have decided to close that now as it was costing quite a bit and I was not really happy with it through vistaprint so that will be closing in about a week , one day I would like to have a professional website done where I am free to put on what I like , where I like so that is something to do after Christmas 
If you would like to treat yourself I sell my work in my  etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/patchworkandlace 
time to go and get busy thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments
much love Francine xx

  4. Hi Francine, I thought I had left a message on your last post but I don't see one so I will start by saying how great it is that you are settled in your new home and it is looking wonderful. So pretty. I am amazed at how prolific you are with your gorgeous makes and now so many beautiful Christmas goodies. You really are so clever and I hope your dream of your own shop comes true one day. Blessings, Trills
