Again I'm not doing very well with this blogging malarky and have slipped out of the habit of nattering with you all.

A few weeks ago I was reading a blog by SleepyJoe in which she sets herself some goals for blogging and I think I really need to take a leaf out of her book and set some of my own.  I seem to find the time to read blogs and comment on facebook but never to write anything of my own!

I am going to make a conscious effort to keep in touch - lets see here's my plan;

  • I promise I will say hello every weekend and show you what I have been crafting (lots and lots of photos)
  • I will also check-in once a week with a short post about life in general and anything good that has been happening.

I am still having massive problems uploading pictures onto here anybody else having problems????? : (

Simply plodding along!

Again its been a while since my last entry and I can't say that I have achieved much more since then!

My table at the local art and craft exhibition was not a huge success I must admit, but I did sell a few items so at least I can say I had a go ; )   I suppose in a sense I am also a little more prepared for next time too.  The items that I have made and not sold won't be wasted either as I have signed up to do another event in June so it's not all bad.

We are still waiting for someone to want to buy our house - we have had 4 viewings since Christmas and 4 no-shows.  I think that has something to do with my deflated mood.   Oh yeah and probably the fact that i am back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off  : (   I'm not a happy bunny. 

I have at least finished a ripple blanket that I have been making for a friend - but again my computer is not letting me upload the picture!

I have however started to think about what other things I can start making and have ordered some beads off the Internet at and can't wait for everything to come.  Once it's all here I will upload some pictures and you can see what I have got!

Easter Fair

Woo hoo - Happy Easter everyone!!!!

I have finally got the time to blog and have managed to upload pictures although not by using my computer : ) I hope it's not poorly : (

I may have mentioned it just a few times that I have a stall at a local Arts & Crafts Exhibition for the next 4 days over Easter.  I went to set up on Wednesday evening and was very nervous!  Here is the result - what do you think?????

I did have fun making everything but it took me a long-time and now I worried about whether it will all sell and if it does I will not have anything to go in its space so it will look very bare!

I have also managed to get a couple of private orders for my little rabbits.  I got the pattern from a post on Attic 24 and I think it originally came from a blog called Greedy for Colour.  They are so cute, I just tweaked the original pattern so that they came out slightly smaller and more colourful on their tummy's.

This post is not going to be as long as usual as I'm popping over to the Exhibition to look for a special birthday present x

Have a lovely Easter whatever plans you may have
