Wednesday 10 April 2024


Well, last week flew by with time spent with friends and family and, sadly, a funeral.

This week is unusual as hubby has been away for a few days so I have been free to roam! Nothing exciting but nice not to have get meals etc. 

Today I am out for brunch and then decorating my wedding anniversary cake. When I was young I thought it was old folk who celebrated their Golden but somehow now that's me! We are not having a do but have invited friends and family for cake and a celebratory drink over the weekend. Then we plan on lots of nice days and meals out with them over the next few weeks.

The only crafty activity has been a bit of dyeing for Tilly. I found a new use for my net veg bags....

They were perfect for containing the wool, fluff and curls while they dry on my washing line 

I am sure Tilly will love them and make good use of the results for her pictures and workshops 

So that's me for this week 

Have a good week. See you next week.

 After a hectic week,, last week, I am back in my sewing room getting a few jobs done.

Apologies for not posting last week. We were at a wedding. It was a lovely day if just a tad parky! 

Here is the card that I made for the bride and groom.

This week I have had Nanny duties and also admin for Tilly Tea Dance. She had finished some beautiful sunflower pictures so I framed them for her, ready to go into the shops and exhibition.

The time is flying by isn't it. 

I just hope it will warm up soon and maybe rain a little less!

Have a good week all.

 Another week, another Wednesday.

I seem to have been busy over the last week and thankfully have my bounce back so have been out and about a bit more. 

My crafty activity has involved knitting another Twiddler.  

I just need to add a few bits and bobs to twiddle 

Then I finished off two tiny cardigans....

Baked this yummy veggy puff for family tea on Monday 

Now I need to use these pretty fabrics to make a wedding card.

Happy days!

Have a good week all.

 Good morning all 

Having had success with my egg covers, I have started to fill another box so that they can be sold asap as Easter will soon be upon us!

I made a few more rabbits and some funky chicks and lambs. 

I used white eyelash yarn for this one....

Cute isn't it 

Apart from that, I have been finishing off the stock labelling for Tilly. She has been very busy with her artwork and even managed to order some coasters from her latest designs.

I hope you are enjoying the slightly warmer weather - we could do with some dry, sunny days now.

Have a good week.

 Good morning all 

 No photos from my desk this week.

It has mostly been covered with artwork which I have been pricing and labelling ready to restock Tilly's shelf at the Bog Visitors' Centre at The Stiperstones.

My own crafty activity has been limited to these little cuties ..

Our hospital put out a call for tiny baby cardigans so I found my patterns and yarn from my stash and set to. They are tiny so don't take too long to make.

The knitted egg covers from last week , all 50 of them, went to the charity on Saturday and were all sold within 48 hours so I might potter on with a few more this week.

Now that I have my bounce back,  I am getting out and about, making up for lost time!

Have a good week all.
