New fabric shelves!

My lovely Hubby could see that I have been struggling to find homes for all of my fabric bolts.  I had run out of room and needed more shelves,
 so...look what he made me at the weekend!!
EXTRA storage!! 
 He custom made this gorgeous wooden shelving unit for me

 He is in my good books!!
 I was given this lovely "Homespun Loft" bunting as a gift, it's so cute and sits perfectly above the fabrics

 All neat on day one...
It has made a big difference already, I needed this extra space and can now keep more fabric collections together.  
He's even asking if I would like some more!!! :0)

Introducing my Customer Corner

It makes my day when my lovely happy customers are kind enough to send me photos of sewing projects that they have completed using fabrics bought from my store.  I have been meaning for ages to add a new page to my blog and share the photos (with the permission of the owners)  Finally I can declare it open!
 I would love you to click on the link over there on the top right hand side of this page and take a peek.  It is still work in progress,  more to be added.  Simply click "Home" to return to this page.
If any of my customers, it doesn't matter how old or new, would like to appear on my page, have a name check and share your beautiful work, then please do get in touch, just click on "email me" and I would love to hear from you. 
Thank you friends,
homespun hugs, Charlotte xx

My trip to London to see The Royal Wedding!!


Hello lovely THL friends. I have just had the most enjoyable few days away in London joining the 1 million other people who decided to make the trip into London and celebrate The Royal Wedding! I hope you will enjoy looking at some of our family snaps of the occasion!
We arrived in London Thursday afternoon and went straight to Buckingham Palace to see the sites before the Wedding the next morning.






We took full advantage of the roads being closed and wandered around outside Buckingham Palace and along The Mall where many people had been camping for days to get the perfect vantage point!
      The "press pods" where we saw Piers Morgan!  
Round the corner from The Palace just off The Mall, the guards outside Clarence House



Down The Mall and along to Trafalgar Square
 

Outside The Savoy Hotel! 

The BIG DAY
Looking down The Mall towards Buckingham Palace


Her Majesty The Queen and Prince Phillip,(tiny dot of yellow in the car to the right!) 
The Bride!  
We headed off to Hyde Park to watch on the big screens with 120,000 others and waited for the balcony appearance 

The Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane fly right over our heads 





A nice touch from The Ritz Hotel 


and also from The Lady magazine offices 


I'm very proud to be British and so glad that we went on that special day. 
 Thank you for sharing it with me
Hugs, Charlotte xx
