Ever So Busy.......

Well I have been away from blogland for a while. Where does the time go?? I know that everyone asks themselves the same thing.

It has been a busy week here. Molly, the youngest, had a very sore tooth and gum after having a filling last week and spent most of the weekend having to have Pamol. A visit to the school dental nurse on Monday revealed an infection in the tooth. Poor wee mite had to have the tooth extracted. She was very very brave, just a few wee tears. It wasn't until I dropped her back at school that the whole thing just got too much for her and I was soon returning to pick her up for cuddles, medicine and an afternoon on the couch.

The rest of the week was spent trying to get up to walking speed for a half marathon walk that I am doing in Blenheim next Sat.

I have been walking 2-3 times a week, each time getting very sore hips. Very much feeling like an old lady. But yeaterday I managed the full 21km in 4 hours. My gosh I was that jolly pleased with myself but my gosh I was quite sore. I am looking forward to the event next week but am really not sure if I will do another.

Today I am excited as I have bought 2 things on Trade Me to use on my stall as display.


I think they will both look great with brightly coloured fabric items in them.  Don't you??  I will pick them up next week and have a bit of a play!!

The sewing has begun with a clean up of those partially finished items and items that went wrong and need unpicking.  Yes I can make mistakes just like everyone.  Very frustrating isn't it.

Well I must away for some kip as it is up early for hockey and rugby games tomorrow.

Catch you all soon

Yummy things

So instead of getting busy with the sewing that I really need to do, I have been 'surfing the net' and settign up my blog. I am constantly amazed by the number of really talented people out there.
I came home from work (at my part time reception job where there was nothing to do, hence the web browsing!!)this morning all inspired to launch myself into my work but alas I could not cope with looking at the pile of clean washing that needed folding any longer. So unfortunately the washing won.

I have discovered these beautiful necklaces by Lisa Leonard. Aren't they just gorgeous. I do beleive I will have to lay down some serious hints to my husband in order to get one. Perhaps I might just treat myself. The sewing will definitley have to get done first!!

Enjoy yourself looking over these. I have put a link on the side under "My Wish List"

My children are back at school next week, so some normality in my day will prevail. Hence work should get done.

Hope to have some pictures up of some new things I have made.

See you then

A newbie

So I have decided to make a blog about my world as a crafter. Could be a bit crazy as I have no idea what I am doing. It is supposed to be easy so we will see.
Right now it is school holidays and I promised my children that I would taken them to the bike park. So blogging will have to wait!

Watch this space. Hopefully there will be more soon
