Felting angels


Hope you she all wrapping up well :)

Whilst I was in Oswestry earlier this week, I spotted a beautiful felted fairy hanging in a window. She was so delicate hanging there, waiting for a new home. Well, it wasn't going to be my home for a whopping £20!!! wowza.

So, me being me, I always say 'I can make that'. Well, here she is . . . mine is an angel with halo.

I am hoping to make some white angels to sell on my stalls :-)

Catch ya later alligators

I had a proud moment as a parent yesterday. My daughter finally learnt to ride her bike without stabilisers.

It was a lazy Sunday. Other half doing diy, lil man snoozing, daughter drawing and me hooking away. I felt lethargic n groggy. So, me n my daughter got wrapped up n I took her to the local playing fields. The paths around the fields are flat and even.

The air was fresh and crisp, just what we needed to blow the Halloween cobwebs away!!!

She was whimpering a bit, but with a little encouragement, there was no stopping her and she was gone.

whoop whoop yeah!!!

So, proud. I helped her.


A new chapter

Hello people.

I hope you are all smiling.

I started the New chapter in my life. Today is the first of my new career.

If you remember I have chosen to take voluntary redundancy and I finished work last Wednesday. Things were crazy last week.
My mum was visiting and I felt I didn't have enough hours in the day. Thursday was the Halloween party and pictures 'may' follow later!!! It was great for the kids.!!

I am slowly starting to realise I add to many things to my mental to do list (did that sound right???).

I need to learn to say no to doing things and I need to be motivated because I am now working for myself.

My short time plan is to build stock for my 3 stalls I have booked between 22nd November and 7th December!! Argh. I am filled with trepidation!! The reassuring thing is that people have approached me to do these stalls rather than me putting myself out there. I am so busy making and planning.

My long term plan is to set up my pottery painting business 'Splat n splodge'
I am so excited about this but finding the right premises is holding me back. I have such a passion to fulfil this ambition. . .

So, today after running the kids to school and childminder very late! I sped across the county to lovely Oswestry to  meet a fellow VR'er.
We had coffee and did some shopping for fabric for my makings!! I also got a couple of Christmas pressies. Must be a first in November!!!

On my way home I called at my harbadashery supplier and found I came across the 3rd rainbow of the day.
Wow the colours were something else. So bright and stunning. I had to stop the car and take a picture.

Well, that's my recap for now. I will post some pictures of my makery pretty soon.

I hoping to tidy, bake, sew, food shop and be homely tomorrow . . . too much on my list again!!!
