I have been a busy little bee this morning!  I have finished my felt bead bracelet!  I really like it! I needle felted the beads myself and added some crystal beads in between them as spacers.

What do you think!?!

I have also been busy trying to declutter and sort my craft stuff out - I've just a bit of fabric and some leather bits to my shop so have a look if you are interested in some supplies.

Apart form this I have been looking on the new Pinterest website - a virtual visual pinboard! There is absolutely loads on there to look at. will take you to my boards where you can have a look at my likes! It is a fantastic timewaster so if you have an hour to spare pop on over and take a peek!  I have become slightly addicted to it!

Folksy Friday

Well here is my first Folksy Friday - The subject for my first is people who have featured me before - when they told me they were featuring me in their Folksy Fridays I said I'd return the favour when I eventually got round to setting up a blog....  It may have been a few months ago but I haven't forgotten!

I'll start the ball rolling with a few of my bits that have been blogged and are still in my shop

Here are my tape measure brooch, pom pom scarf and butterfly zip brooch.


So here are my 5 for my first Folksy Friday - the first one is a gorgeous shabby chic wreath by Rags to Roses.  Next we have a cute little notebook by Dabdash and third is a really nice valentines card by AccidentalVix.  The fourth one is a stunning little scarflette by Linda at uniquelyyours and lastly there is a little fabric keepsake wallet made by Ellies Treasures. 

Please suggest something fora topic next week and I'll choose my favourite!
Here we are - heres my daughter in her new jumper!  It was knitted in King Cole Riot yarn - its wonderfully soft and self patterning so makes these lovely stripes


Well, I've been sitting here with a pile of UFO's for too long (thats un-finished objects and nothing to do with little green men!)  and decided it was time that I actually finsished something! I have completed a jumper for my daughter which I started about October time! She's only 4 so its not massive but it is the first wearable thing I have actually finished apart from scarves, hats and gloves!  I am so very proud of myself!!  It was my first go at knitting cables and am pleased to say I have suceeded - with a bit of help from my lovely nan. I'd like to post a pic but so far have not worked out how to do it - will get one posted shortly.........

I still have several UFO's on the go which will eventually get finished.......
I'm working on things to add to my folksy shop at the moment - I'm currently needle felting away  - well I was until I stabbed myself several times.  Keep your eyes peeled over the next few days for new and exciting stuff in my shop.  Thanks for reading
