1st May 2011

A day of Reflection

What does May 1st mean to you?
To some it's May day, to others it's just another day.
To me it is a day of reflection.

It is a bitter sweet day!
A day where I think about the many joys in my life
and it is also a day of much sorrow.

I thought I would share with you why the day
is such a huge one to me.

First of all it is the Day my mum was born.
On May1st 1937 Margery Davies came into the world
she was the 3rd and last child for my amazing grandparents.
I think Nana was so excited to have a little
girl after 2 boys.

Here is a photo of mum holding my first born "Blake"
he is two days old. The date is 14th December 1996 

 She was so proud to hold her first grandchild in her arms.
I look back at that this photo and wish I knew then
what I know now.
You see mum was to pass away 9 weeks later.
She was 59, I was 28 and the date was
14th February 1997.
Valentines day 1997 mum chose to be reunited with
He had passed away 16th September 1977 I was 8.

When I meet Drew in March 2004
little did I know I would marry him, and our 2 families would become one.
On December 25th 2004 he asked me to marry him.
Here is a photo of the two of us on our wedding day.

The day was May1st 2005.

Last year my amazing Nana aged 96 got sick.
She was still living on her own.
Taking care of everything for herself.
She was amazing I loved her to bits.
Since Mum had passed away she was
not only Nana but Mum as well.
When I was worried or had news to celebrate
she was the first to know.
I would sit with her and she would help me solve the
problems of the world.

Here is a photo of her with us on her 96th Birthday
24th January 2010.

Sadly Nan passed away
on May1st 2010
Mum's 73rd Birthday.
She was reunited with her baby girl.

So now you understand why May1st is such a bitter sweet day.
A day of reflection.

You see these two woman are who helped me
become who I am today.
They nurtured me they made be believe I could do anything that I wanted and more!
They are the reason I love to sew.
They are the reason I followed my dreams.
They are the reason behind
Frillys Designs.

Frilly's Designs is a tribute to them
and my amazing husband.

Hello everyone.
Wow April already this year is certainly running along at full speed.
My baby just turned 11 and I am sure it was only last year she actually
arrived into this world. She was such a cute little bubba.
Now she is what she thinks is a young lady.
11 going on 21.

Well there are going to be some changes to Frilly's.
Starting the 1st of May,
After some expert marketing advice Frilly's is going to wind back on
all the creations.
I will still make all the things I do now, just they will have to be requested.
I will not advertise them.
I am going to concentrate on my most favourite things and the ones you love the most.

Bunting Flags
Towels/Face washer/Sets
Satin Comfort Blankey's
Baby Blankets.

I will only be taking 10 custom spots a month.

I will work on getting some ready made items happening where you can
"Add a Name here"
Once payment has cleared if will then be posted the next day.

I am going to really work on getting designs and fabric samples for my buntings and satin blankets uploaded.
So it is just a matter of  you picking A,B and C and I get to it.

I want to make things less confusing for you the customer.

Please make sure you visit Frilly's on Facebook and my OZ Handmade Store.

I would like to hear your thoughts so please comment below.

Have an awesome day
