O is for #October

O is for #October It's here, it's finally (nearly!) here! I have no idea how we're in the 10th Month already but I'm glad. Because I absolutely love October! I'm posting this early because I won't get chance in the morning. Covid has put a stop to most things this year but it won't stop me from decorating my house and getting involved in Pumpkin carving! Things I love about Autumn: Dark Nights, Cosy Jumpers Thick Coats and Scarves Turning Leaves Crisp Mornings Sunny Days Woodland Walks Rubbish Saturday night TV and of course...Halloween! With all its messy Pumpkin Carving and Hilarious Halloween decor. I couldn't be happier that it's here! #smallbusiness #Autumn #October #HowtheHell #10thMon

#GinPigSewingClasses

Monday Night Sewing classes at Gin Pig! I said it last week but it’s so good to be back!! Tonight we finished off our aprons. Binding, pockets and wrap around the straps, you name it, we’ve covered it! Here’s a photo of mine. Complete with front patch pockets, a frilled skirt and a pompom hem. Adding a bit of glamour to baking! #smallbusiness #handmade #sewing #sewingbee #thepinkflamingo #ginpig

Who doesn’t love a crisp, Autumn morning. Especially when it’s Friday! This morning was a hive of activity! We had make up bags, flower corsages, draw string PE bags and of course... masks!

Everyone welcome, from beginners to experienced! Classes run every Friday morning from Lower Holker Village Hall #smallbusiness #handmade #sewingclass #friday #sewingbee

G is for #GinPigSewingClasses

Last night was my 1st Gin Pig Sewing Class after lockdown and it was great to be back doing what I love! This was the class that I had to postpone due to lockdown #1. So fingers crossed we can make it to the end of this course! We started making aprons! A great gift idea, or just a way to brighten up your kitchen. Here’s a few photos of mine in progress. It is made from a royal blue cotton fabric, printed with flamingoes! #smallbusiness #handmade #sewing #sewingbee #pinkflamingoshorts

#RoadTrip!

Just a few from our Scottish Road Trip! Dumfries, Kirkcudbright, Castle Douglas and Annan. It's not often I would post a photo of myself but here we are in Scotland. We took full advantage of the Sunny weather, jumped in the campervan and went on an Adventure! We ended up in Scotland! We woke up to a stunning beach view and visited Threaves Estate and Gardens before coming home on Saturday! #adventure #weekendaway #friday #sunny #roadtrip #Scotland

#Inspo

A little bit of inspiration for you this morning. I'm in the middle of gathering ideas for my SS21 makes . Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes, the main one for me is COLOUR! Anything bright, printed, patterned, rainbow.....as daft as it sounds, fruit, flowers and nature are the main things that inspire me with colour. I love anything vibrant. And here is my other love (inspired by my obsession with mermaids no less!) anything IRIDESCENT! www.thepinkflamingodesigns.co.uk #smallbusiness #ideas #inspiration #colour #shiny #rainbow #oilslick

M is for #MondayMindset
