I have also had a look on Folksy and found a seller who I'll be buying from this month. If you would like the link to the shop please leave a comment before Friday 1pm, as that is when the children and I will be heading down to Dorset for a week. This is good news for us and especially for Mary as I'll be taking my paper bag swap to work on and Mum is much classier than me so she will probably temper my flamboyance a little!
I hope you all have a brilliant half term, and any Dorset readers if you fancy meeting for a brew just say! See you soon. xxx

These potholders are gorgeous too and technically baffling!
I should have added something for scale- this is a darling little square- coming soon to a brooch near- well me actually!
This pile of fluffy, felty, loveliness, in just my colours, is to embellish an indigo zip up felt purse which also came along for the ride- I'm thinking a paisley shape in honour of Terri.
No one was left out, the children each received T-shirts, colouring books, stickers, magic pens and crayons- (which is what is buying me the time to write this post!) but absolutely no prizes for guessing what Anna played with first;
I'm not sure what I will play with first, I can't thank you enough Terri. You are a real pal, in any and every sense of the word. xx

I haven't yet made a Folksy Pay Day purchase from Septembers pay day because I have been mulling over a new idea. I saw a while back that a U.S group were organising people to buy from a previously un-discovered Etsy shop, all in one hit, like a random act of consumerist kindness. I wondered if something similar would work with Folksy. I picture that I might have a little list of people who I would e-mail on the 21st of the month with a Folksy seller who we would 'hit', they would have at least 6 items in their shop and they would have items for under £10. Ideally they would not yet have made any sales but I would be looking for others than just brand new sellers. It would be optional to join in each month, no pressure. If you like what you see in the shop you could make a purchase within the next 48 hours- then I would do a blog feature on the sellers shop. Because of the way Folksy works this would increase the sellers visibility for the future as well as making them all warm inside from having a sale. I would obviously be trying to find sellers with high quality items, this is not sympathy buying, just supporting fellow makers and starting a little Christmas shopping perhaps? Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks xx

Anyway enjoy your weekends, one and all, I shall be peeping out for the harvest moon, some cultures see this moon as the perfect time for nurturing friendships and joining together around a fire for a dose of merriment- good plan!
