Three totes, all slightly different, made from the Designers Guild Passiflora Collection of fabrics.

Winter Sun - in pale, wintery yellows, creams and beiges.
Autumn Leaves - in russet, chocolate and orange
Cruise the Med - in turquoise, lime and lavender.

I've been tagged .....

This is new - hope I do this right! I have been tagged by Lazydaisy Glass whose blog is and is now added to my blogroll. The rules are as follows:1) Link to your tagger and list all these rules in your blog. 2) Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird. 3) Tag 7 people at the end of your post by including links to their blogs.4) Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs.

Now for the facts, this is difficult!
  1. My sewing machine was a 21st birthday present from my Mum
  2. My family used to run a restaurant called 'The Taming of the Stew'
  3. I've been on the top 5 roller coasters in Florida (2000): The Incredible Hulk (Islands of Adventure); Duelling Dragons Fire and Ice (Islands of Adventure); Kraken (Sea World); Montu (Busch Gardens) and Gwazi (Busch Gardens)
  4. I have 10 chickens in my back garden and run poultry keeping courses in my spare time
  5. I was Milnthorpe Ladies Darts Champion in 1987
  6. I'd love to move to a smallholding in France
  7. I gained a BSc(Hons) in Public Health Nursing in 1998.

I am going to tag the following bloggers (getting hard to find people who have not already been tagged - I should've done this sooner I think!):

I hope they don't all have to be crafters or blogspot blogs!!

Have fun tagging! :-)

Sage & Terracotta Funky Chicken Pot Holders

A pair of funky chicken pot holders in soft sage green and mellow terracotta. Space age insulating wadding keeps hands cool when man handling your hot pots out of the oven!

These chickens are very well behaved - sitting quietly where they are put until you need them, they will not go rampaging off to raid your veg patch and will definitely not leave any unwanted presents on the kitchen floor!
