Penny's shop

Posted by PicasaPenny Baker, who makes pretty applique cushions and vintage fabric packs for Handmade Happiness, has just opened a shop at Bosham Walk near Chichester. The new shop is upstairs and Penny also has a shop area downstairs. Penny collects and sells vintage clothes and household linens. She says the clothes often have tiny waists by our standards and she sometimes alters the skirts accordingly. Penny is a good needlewoman and everyone admires her cushions in my shop. She also sells in Marmaduke's in Midhurst and has a stall at the Midhurst monthly market.

Yesterday was a day off work for both of us and we had a day out in Chichester. A quick whizz round the shops followed by lunch at the revamped Marks and Spencer cafe. Then we went to the cinema and saw 'The very exotic Marigold Hotel' with Judy Dench and Bill Nighy. It's different to the book but a great 'feel good' film. I recommend it. Finally we put the world to rights over a coffee. So good to have a proper day off. Thanks Penny, I thoroughly enjoyed it!
