My little world

Hello my lovely bloggy friends, hope you are all well , time is whizzing past as always and Autumn is certainly in the air ,i do love this time of year , the cosy nights in by the fire , candlelight and lots of warm comfort food like stews, pies and dumplings and lots of snuggly blankets too
Christmas bits and bobs are creeping into the shops already and i am determined to be more organized this year ,with presents and my work as i always feel like i am playing catch up
Quilts are always popular over the colder months and i do love to make them but i just need more space, which i will have soon as i am reorganizing the house so that i can have my very own work room which is all mine, where i can spread my wings and i can make all the things i want to in the bigger space, i have made a start so i will keep you updated over the next week
My youngest daughter has just turned 10 so we celebrated that this week , no big party this year , she had a couple of friends over and i took them trampolining and then for a pizza which was a lot less work then having a party with 30 or so friends to entertain , thank fully we are passed all that
My son is now 20 and is enjoying his Apprentiship as an electrician and will qualify after Christmas and my other daughter is 17 and is in her second year of college , still not sure what she wants to do yet , i am so glad they all still live at home , i will be heartbroken when they all fly the nest
Cath kidston is still my favourite shop by far in fact it's the only shop i ever really go in , i could buy everything , i do miss the old prints and the displays they used to have in the shops which they dont really have now but i still love it , every time i walk into a Cath kidston shop i feel like i'm coming home
 I am still busy with my work and have just finished these pink patchwork curtains which are very popular and i have sold a couple already , they are just very time consuming and it is surprising how long they do take to make but i am not going to make them to order , these are a standard size so the thought of any bigger ones is just too much work
I am still considering taking someone on to help me take my business forward , i know it is the next step if i want to grow but we shall see , maybe when i have my own work room it will be easier to bring someone else in
I still long to have my own shop , it has been a dream of mine for so long but the expense and pressure is so off putting, i am however very happy working from home , i do not have any overheads and i don't have the pressure of a shop rent to find every month, i have seen so many shops open and close over the years it is such a shame as all the people started out with dreams like i have so for now i shall stay as i am where i am happy and under no pressure
well that's all for now i am going to go to bed and read for a while , i only ever manage a couple of pages before i fall asleep so thank you for popping by to see me

 and here i am so i'm not just a faceless business, much love Francine xxx
