Poorly Son

Not done a great deal today, my little boy is poorly - well teething actually - so has the usual cold and a bad temper to go with it! All he wanted was lots of cuddles. He fell asleep on me this morning and every time I tried to put him in bed he awoke and screamed the house down! So I had about 1hr or so laying on my bed with him. I did manage to do some crochet though so I didn't mind.

Well hopefully he will feel a bit better tomorrow. At the moment he is tucked up in bed but coughing lots - poor thing he is just really congested.

If anyone has any tips on teething - please let me know.

Little Studio all set up

As promised a couple of pics of my completed Crafting Studio - Work Space.

I am really happy with it and am looking forward to producing more lovely things!

I also sold a couple of items on ebay today so really pleased.

Let me know what you think.

My little work space - with my bargain table and stool - not bad for £13.00

My lovely partner David, re-upholstered this for me today - Thank you honey x

A snapshot of some fabric

This is a flower from my sketch book that I found whilst sorting out today.

Bank Holiday Bootfair crafty buys

Over the last two weekends I have managed to grab myself a couple of bargins.

Last week we went to our local bootfair in Ashford Kent and it poured with rain, on our dash back to the car - we found a booter selling a solid oak rectangular table. Ideal for my sewing and embroidery machine to sit on. Managed to get it for £10.00 - really pleased.

This weekend we went again and managed to get a little round swivel stool for £3.00. It was really dirty - but with a good clean it is looking fab. Just need to sort out our spare room and set up my little work studio.

We are working in the garden this weekend - so might manage to do this next week.

Will post pictures once it is all done.

Have a great weekend

Completed Baby Shoes

Here we go - baby shoes completed! I am really quite pleased with them. However, not suitable for my little boy - He is 13 months and I think already fed up of trying on all the baby clothes I make - the last item I put on him was a girls cardigan - he moaned and tried to rip it off!

I have been so busy lately with the business that I feel that I have missed out on lots of fun with my son - so yesterday I took him for a lovely walk to our local park and to have a play on the swings - and what did he do - SLEEP - all the while I was out! Typical eh?
I was working today and it is going well - took three orders this morning so things are really starting to move now. Thank goodness - you never know how things are going to go when launching a new business - especially in our current climate.
Well - off to do some knitting - got a hoodie to start for Buddy!

Only just started baby crochet shoes

I am working on a lovely pair of baby crochet shoes at the moment - in a lilac colour - only started this evening after I put my little man to bed. He is 13 months and the light nights are playing havoc with the bedtime routine. Tonight all he wanted to do was play. All Mummy wanted him to do was to go asleep. Daddy rescued me and got him off to sleep. Well done Dad Dad.

Well I seem to have been on the computer all day - so off for a cheeky glass of wine and to pick up my crochet hook.

Misi Account

Hi everyone,

I have finally added some items to by misi store :

fingers crossed - you never know I may make my first sale.

I have been really busy today - working with my partner David on our website : we are in the process of launching our online fishing tackle shop.

Things are getting really exciting now as we are manufacturing our own brand of high end tackle and we have adverts and product reviews going into some of the major carp magazines next month. Carp World, Angling Times & UK Carp.

Here is one of the crocheted baby cardigans I have made.

Haven't had much time to knit or crochet last week - but plan to get back to it as soon as.
