Glad to hear you are all well. Looks like an impressive amount of snow to me!

It is a very lovely ladder, it falls under two loves of mine, libraries and furniture! However I think you are right, it would take up quite a bit of room, maybe the next house!

I know a lot of bloggers get "stick" for seemingly being perfect, but you know if I want to look at endless piles of laundry, dirty bathrooms, homework being done at the last minute, etc,etc all I have to do is get up off the sofa! We all live very busy lives and wish things were a bit tidier, prettier etc. This is why I have a list of bogs I read daily, they give me inspiration, a desire to try new things and just "try" to be a bit better today than I was yesterday. So yes I have voted for you and should you publish a book I will buy it! I love your blog, keep up the good work!

Being a wee bit obcessed with interiors, with a particular interest in little girls rooms, I for one am very excited to see how this room turns out! Not sure my husband is as excited as it may mean re-decorating in our house :) Amy

I think it IS magic, to take something which can be a waste product and make a useful and beautiful item can only be pure magic! I take my hat off to your patience levels, which far exceed mine ;). Amy

Ah happy days! But have to say I am glad the snow has gone, the school run was much easier this morning! Amy

Oh this is lovely! I loved your last embroidery too! I have most of those books but the "Storybook Toys" is on my wish list, looking forward to seeing how your rabbit turns out! Amy

Some good words of advice from the above comments. I found an excellent piece of advice on Pinterest (oh the irony), which is not to wait around for inspiration but to get making and inspiration will follow. It was phrased more succinctly than that but that is what I took from it. Now I just have to see if it works!! Amy

Beautiful! Both the top and the wearer! Love haberdashery departments, in fact I am hoping to go to one tomorrow, fingers crossed they have Liberty too!

I am afraid I don't have any helpful book suggestions but just wanted to say, as a new (in my case a hobby) business myself, I am finding your posts really useful and helpful! All I would say is that I find it is useful to have a friend who is in a similar situation that you can meet up with and inspire/motivate each other. So thank you and good luck with your endeavours!

That is indeed wonderful! Could just sit there and read my new clothbound version of Sense and Sensibility! If the children would let me....

It looks awesome, well done! I agree, the dress does look grown up but in a sophisticated way. Amy

I am really enjoying your blog posts at the moment, they are so pertinent to my family experiences! With regards to healthier treats, we too struggle with this. What with my fussy kids and nut allergies in school my ingredients are restricted and snacks and treats tend to be choc chip related, however experiements with the amount of sugar and fat can be useful. I have on occasion (accidentally) left out the butter in some cakes and no-one noticed! Only when I found a bowl of butter did I realise it hadn't been added! I would imagine that the biscuits I make don't need as much sugar as the recipe says either. As a rule of thumb though I would rather they ate home made biscuits with all the sugar and butter that I add (if I remember) than shop bought biscuits with a long list of ingredients that I can't pronounce!

Oh my, I wish you every success with this! Something I constantly do is tidy up "stuff". I don't have any advice as such as I am a magpie and am married to a hoarder but if you are actively getting rid of stuff and buying less eventually you will see an improvement? I enjoy reading your posts on this subject and do enjoy a good clear out, once the hoarder is at work ;-)
