exciting post arrived today…
it was my prize from that crafty fish :: hurrah!
so much cheery goodness!
next to show is something of my own making. my First Sock…
ta da! my first ever handknit sock is finished and i’m really rather pleased! it’s pair has been cast on and is underway, so hopefully my mother-in-law will be able to keep her toes toasty come the colder weather.
i do confess, however to being in a bit of a crafting tiz. i’m starting both knitting and sewing projects left right and centre and having more ideas than i can cope with. ideas obviously lead to trips to fabric shops or internet suppliers and my poor bank balance sighs deeply and shakes its head. it knows i’ll never learn. of course the plan is to SELL some of these lovely things i’m halfway through making, and earn the money back. indeed i now have two internet shops, one here for selling in £ and one here for selling in US$. i’m not sure why i put the links in though, as both shops have sadly bare shelves! i’ve also been to see the ladies at the local country market and might be able to sell some things there. hopefully this weekend will see the ‘finished’ pile grow and the ‘in progress’ heap diminish as i’m heading over to my parents’ house while my dad comes here to help phil decorate the main room and the hall.
lastly for show and tell, is samuel’s new haircut! i don’t think i’ll be having a career in hairdressing but it’s my best effort so far.
p.s. go here :: totally the best shop i’ve come across for a while :: enjoy!
