January

The weather has been kind here, and generally more mild than usual.

I seemed to be more keen on shopping than making. Found a few shops around here and have bought the odd half metre here and there!

Looking for some thing different to make.

I only bought a little bit as I really didn;'t need any....

Re: 2019 to do list

I am lacking inspiration and want to make - but not sure what, as I don't know anyone that needs anything! I have decided to make some hand wipes in cases like the tissues, finally found some packs that are 4 for a £1 in savers, and will make them so you can insert any of the other makes in. I bough...

Happy New Year

I hope that everyone has a Happy New Year, and that next year will be a good one!.

We are starting with a heart op (husband) so hopefully after that things will be much better for us.

Have failed miserably at sale shopping...can't find any good fabric bargains!

Re: tis quiet - be lovely to have a chat

This week I had a request to make some throwing bean bags for a friend as she is making a tin can game for her grand children for Christmas. I actually put real beans - well yellow split p...

Re: tis quiet - be lovely to have a chat

That was a lot of work. No wonder you haven't been crafting. Nice to have the space back.

I cleared out the garage and now lots of room and gave lots away on Freecycle, also did some inside where stuff just piles up. More to charity and Freecycle.

Re: Nice

that is as good as buying - new to you - is all that matters, you will have to find a few hours to craft so get you relaxed ready for more studying - a girl has to take a break!

Re: Surpise I've been away for ages

Sadly there are not any visitors these days, but good to see you back. I have been busy sewing, I am now 'retired' following redundancy, but am filling a lot of my time giving lifts to hospital as my husband is on kidney dialysis now. Trying to take things to do whilst i am there, and will get more ...
