HELLO !!

Well its been a long time since ive written on this blog !!  ...last year i went back to the hotel ...you may or not remember i had to because of the stressful situation i was in with the tax credits , it all remained really stressful but working 7 days a week kept my mind off it but also kept me busy as i was determined to fight them as their decision was just plain wrong , trouble was the people you appeal to are the people that dont believe you and their minds wont be changed , so in the end i took it to the next stage which was to go to court , i was so frightened and sent off all my evidence ...within a week i heard back , i didnt have to attend court , they believed me , i didnt owe a ridiculous amount of money and hmrc had to pay me £200 compensation , such a weight lifted off me ...working so much left no time for sewing , i planned to sew in january when the hotel shut for winter but then zach the dog died and i couldnt do anything , i was just too heartbroken ...then the virus !!! such a crazy time of uncertainty ...i decided to pull myself together , i couldnt mope about lounging in pjs every day being sad , so i started sewing to keep me busy , then came the lockdown , ive no idea when coach loads of elderly folk will be able to come to cornwall , so looks like ill have lots of sewing time  !!! ive been desparately looking for a puppy ,  i put a deposit down on one and was getting lots of photos sent but it died at 5 weeks !!! just dont think its meant to be at the moment , rich keeps saying to put it out of my head untill this is all over , i just miss zach more than they will ever know ....anyway im just adding pics here of what ive made so far , all destined for ebay in the coming weeks , if i continue making lots , there maybe things for the blog at some stage , just think ill list a few bits at a time on ebay ...hopefully ill put the 4 silk dresses on ebay tomorrow night ...i cant reserve any of these or take orders , just thought itd be nice for people to have new photos to look at  .... hope your all ok , stay safe and hopefully next time i write things will be normal again xxxx

CHANGES ....

Well this past month has been rather stressfull to say the least , lots of stuff going on all out of my control ....ive not been able to sew , the outfits below were made before all the stress , the doctor even gave me a sick note for a month due to stress and anxiety ...then the next saga was universal credit deemed me as not being gainfully self employed as i dont earn minimum wage per hour ....so i have to prove to them im spending every waking hour looking for full time employment , plus i needed to attend sessions on how to grow the buisness and provide buisness plans and projected figures !!! ....i just like sewing , im definiately not buisness minded and dont even know half of what they were on about ....sooo by this time my head felt like it was going to explode , the simplest thing for me to do was go back to the hotel and waitress part time , so then they wont be harrasing me so much...ive read lots online about how badly they treat self employed people trying to make a living , they very much seem penalised by the new system ...anyway for the next few weeks im working loads in the hotel to cover for a friend thats poorly but soon i'll be part time (at least thats the plan) and i should be able to sew again , not loads but hopefully at the end of each month , theyll be outfits , either on here or ebay ....the only good to come out of all this is that ive lost some weight :) plus im getting excersise , hadnt realised how unfit id got untill i woke up after my first day back feeling like id been stamped on all over !!! ....anyway keep an eye out for new clothes but it wont be for a while yet xxxx

REROOT....

Finished the reroot and shes now on ebay , it was so sunny today i think it made her hair look more vibrant than it really is !!!!  the brunette girl was a bit of a disaster , she came to me in a sorry state her hair was cut all over and the crown was scalped to stubble  but it wasnt  falling so i kept the hair and bobbed it really short and did a no fringe side part , looked dreadful , so then i added a fringe , still dreadful , so as a last resort i did a barely there centre part and added more fringe ...so now shes got a really wide thick fringe (just like me !!) so she will be a new model but as yet has no clothes ...i think shes still got hair trimmings on her in the pic as i took them in a hurry !!! ...
