Other crafty bits... and a little gift for you..

Yep... I have been doing other crafts over the last few months. It really makes a change from making cards, and I really needed the break to get my head in order too. Well, that's probably impossible, but I needed to think through things after making a few important changes to my working life. 

What better way to do this than to do something completely different?! And this little guy is definatley different. I reckon I need to make another smaller one, maybe a girlfriend for my little guy. I also have on order a few of these, so when I get around to knitting him again, I will show you more. 



I've also made a few bags from fat quarters and my sewing machine, some are smocked, some are large and some are small.. but all are beautiful to me! I've sold a few of those too. 

I've crocheted, I've cross stitched and I've loved every minute of a little change of direction. 

I have also been doing some projects on commissions for a national, very well loved craft magazine.. and I will post more details of those at a later date when I'm allowed. 

So, life is good at the minute, things are on the up, and my blog has stopped being stalked and posted on by some random nobody.. all is good!!

It's lovely to be back, and I promise it will be more regular from now on. I just hope you're still here and reading my posts. 

If you are, please leave me a comment and I'll draw up a little crafty bag of goodies as a prize. I will draw a winner next Monday.

    quilting.

  4. Morning, I look most days to see if you have blogged something and I had sort of got used to seeing nothing. So imagine my surprise when I see 2 posts from you this morning, I was really pleased. I agree with Janice (above) I too have missed seeing you on Create and Craft. I always record the shows, due to being at work, but when I have seen it is not you, I have deleted them without watching. I hope we see more of you, whatever it is you are doing.
    Love the giraffe!
