Nieces' 21st Birthday Card.....

 Morning all, yes I'm still here LOL !! I know it's been such a long time since I've added a post to my blog. Just can't believe how busy I've been.

I finished off knitting the nativity scene for a customer. When I gave it to her, she took a photo and put it on her facebook page. When her sister saw it, she ordered a set too !!. So I've been busy knitting another set. In between I've made some more crochet keyrings as I was getting low on stock.

It was my nieces 21st birthday yesterday. Here is the eclipse card that I made her. It's A4 size, which shows how large the dies are that I've used for her name. 
The stamps are by woodware, and Marion Emberson. The flowers at the bottom are a die by Marianne Designs.

I will be doing a few more blogs over the next few days to make up for my absence.

Both my boys are here today for Sunday Lunch, along with my youngest son's partner and their dog!!. Busy day again.

Glad to say the weather is at a more bearable temperature now. Can sleep better at night now.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and hope you can pop by soon. x

Morning all, well here we are again another Friday !!

I've completed this order for a customer now. It's from Jean Greenhowe. Great designs by her, with easy to understand instructions. I will be giving this to the customer next month, so I hope she will be pleased with it.

Progressing well with the daisy bunting. I will show as soon as completed.

Are you still enjoying the hot weather??? I'm beginning to wish that it would cool down a bit, especially at nighttime. 

Not got any more craft fairs booked in now, until August bank holiday. Good chance for me to re-stock, complete orders and start new things....

.....I guess I'm still as busy as normal LOL !!

Bye for now. Have a good weekend x

"PHEW......I've Been Soooooo Busy!!!!"

Morning all, hope you are all well, happy and enjoying this prolonged summer!!
Shame about the football, but they carried themselves off with dignity and pride.

As the heading says, I've been so busy. Doing  Summer fetes at schools, and churches. Also have been trying to 1: complete orders for customers, 2: get my stock up to date after selling, and 3: start making new things ready for the winter months.....

This nativity set is only half complete. It's from a pattern by Jean Greenhowe, and I've made it a few times over the years!! I was asked to do another set from a customer where I go once a month. She Cheekily asked if I could complete by next month....which doesn't give me a lot of time, but glad to say I'm about half way through. Jean Greenhowe patterns are always so nice to knit.

Also have 2 daisy banners to complete. I normally take this crochet with me when I'm doing craft fairs, as it gives me something to do if it's a bit quiet and also I don't get fed up just constantly doing the same thing. These are not required until Christmas, so will show when finished.

Doing a craft fair today in a church, so luckily haven't got to take the gazebo with me. Did one yesterday and hubby had to take me to help me put the gazebo up, as it's a two-man job. Then when I had finished he came back to help me take it down again - He's such a lovely man !!!!

Whatever you are up to this weekend.....enjoy x

It's Been A While.....!!!

Morning all, hope you are all well & happy & enjoying the lovely sunny weather !!

It's been a hectic couple of weeks, with frantic decorating and cleaning going on ready for my new tenant. Glad to say, managed to get everything completed as they move in today.
You don't realise, that you're getting older until you sit down at the end of the day and can't move as your body seizes up LOL !! I've even had a nap in the afternoon on a couple of occasions LOL !!

When I did manage to summon up a bit of energy I've been knitting these beautiful toys.

The patterns are from "Knitables". They have a range of about 12 different animals and costumes. All can be interchanged. They are about 15 inches high. The patterns are easy to follow and have plenty of details to enable you to make the item correctly. I just love them !!!! I can't wait to knit some more, so watch this space !!

Have done a couple of craft fairs too, and trying to keep up with all the other chores indoors !

Hopefully now, things will settle down a bit more.

July just around the corner, and we've already had the longest day........soon be Christmas !!!!!!!!

Have a good weekend. xx

Well, Here's One Wise Man.....LOL !!!

 Morning all, another week has gone by, and I've been so busy !!!!

There are some things that I can't show as yet........patience is a virtue they will just have to see if you are virtuous LOL !!!

I can show you the beginnings of(hopefully) the full set of the nativity characters by Jean Greenhowe. I have a customer who has asked me to knit her a set. I thought I would just knit this one first, then show her and tell her the price for the whole set. If she's happy, then I can continue, If not, I'll have a wise man going cheap !!!!
I've also done a couple of craft fairs since I last did my blog. The last one was Saturday, which was quite successful, the other two - a wipeout !! I have had a bit more success with my facebook page - with some orders coming through.

Also have been to my son's house helping hubby to redecorate the bathroom. We've nearly done the whole house for them - whilst they are at work or on holidays  ...... alright for some !!

I've got a few school summer fairs coming up in the next few weeks. Don't expect to make a lot at these, but the contacts are handy ready for the Christmas season.

I'll say goodbye for now xx

"The Sly Young Fox........."

 Morning all, well here we are again, it's Friday LOL !!!!! My, how time flies !!

I've been knitting this over the last week, in between other jobs !!, and think he's got a really sly/cute smile.

No more craft fairs until next Saturday, so have got time to catch up on boring things like housework ....Booooooo !!. I made husband a cake yesterday, as he's been working hard at my youngest house, redecorating the bathroom. So he deserved a little treat !!

Weather has been lovely here in Kent, I hope it's the same where you are and that it remains lovely for the weekend. 

Have a lovely day and weekend , bye for now xx
