Thank God For Thursday..


As Thursday is now my day off I'm starting a new blog project in the run up to Christmas...
This is week one of my Blog Project 'Thank God For Thursdays!' where I will pick up to 4 crafter's and let you know about their businesses, which I will pick out of my own favourites to share with you all. Each of these crafters have beautiful pages so let me give you a quick background on each of them...

Truly I Do
A beautiful wedding accessories page (sister site to Crafty Chics), everything from shoe clips to bridal tiara's. Charlie (brains behind these beautiful items) makes custom orders, so if your wedding is coming up or your part of a bridal party head over to this beautiful page to add a special touch to your big day.

You Mother Punker
Head over to this page if you have a warped sense of humor like I know a good few of us have and I'm not alone in laughing for a good while at these.. My personal favourite being '
I Still Think I Could've Done Better'... Card's sold on Esty so pop over to have a giggle along with the rest of us!

Dots and Spots
As the name says these beautiful designs are filled with colour, dots, spots and loveliness! Brightly coloured card designs, wrapping and even sticky tape. Any friend you give a gift wrapped with their paper is going to be a winner! Head over to their website to order.

Muddy Puddle Crafts
Wooden loveliness with splashes of bright colours you won't be able to resist having a nosey through all of their items! From wooden hearts to beautiful hand painted boxes. Great place to head if your wanted a personalised gift for a friend or even your children's teacher.

Time flys by..


As this blog is about my life as well as business I thought I'd share my summer with you all...
With the whole of our summer flown by a lot has happened, unfortunately a lot of bad BUT a few good times thrown in there too. As many of you know we went on holiday in May, since coming back from our amazing time away a lot of bad news came our way. I took a lot of time away from Sweet Cotton Threads as everything was too hectic at home running backwards and forwards between looking for new homes and my Grandad ill in hospital, without keep orders up to date which I knew I couldn't juggle too. In the time we we're closed we had a family death and we moved! Two of the most stressful moments in our lives, both of which I had never experienced before. My Grandad passed away in early July from Cancer and then two weeks later we moved. I just want all our loyal like's and customers to know that I did have good reason for closing (I wish it was for spending the whole summer on a beach). I know a lot of people appreciate others honesty in situations like these. But everything is slowly getting back to 'normal' and we are settling in our new home!

I've been busy this week with sorting through my fabrics (properly) and took a few snaps along the way so you lovelies could see too!! I even made my poor boyfriend drive 2 hours back home so we could pick up yet more fabric last weekend...  we arrived back home on Monday night with a car filled with food and washed + ironed clothes (thank you Mum and Dad!!), missing the fabrics for Christmas stock!! So we shall be taking another drive back up to Lincoln tomorrow to collect it all (I will remember this time haha) and then the Christmas sewing can begin!

Now for the fabric photos!

 What a mess!

 
 Buttons and ribbons finally sorted out. Still a few jars of buttons to go but I shall get there!

Sewing room tour very soon, thanks for reading and see you all soon
