First I have a confession....Last week's WOYWW was launched automatically for while I was away and although we did get back home Wednesday evening since then my feet have rarely touched the ground so I haven't manage to do any return visits on my blogging friends. Sorry. I will aim to do better this week....promise.
Last Thursday morning I had to have my routine mammogram in Shrewsbury so Twiglet and I decided to use the opportunity to have a quick shop and lunch in Shrewsbury....bliss
Friday morning Twiglet and I paid a visit to Tina, from Indigo Moon in Montgomery, to discuss helping stock her tables for a Craft Fair. It's on Saturday 27th November in the town hall. So, if you fancy splashing out on a few fab hand crafted Christmas gifts then come along and see what we have been up to!! Of course we chatted over a coffee [thank you Tina] and it was really special to wow another crafter with our crafty bits and bobs.
As you may well have seen on my previous post Saturday was another wow filled day for me. It was spent oohing and awing over the most gorgeous dresses and making plans for our eldest daughter's special day.
Monday was a 'back to work' day for me and oh how I've been missed :-) As you can see my rail very quickly filled but of course Monday is Funday here and Twiglet came down as usual for the day. We counted, wrote down the codes etc and filled boxes with lots of goodies ready for the up and coming craft fair and then set to to have creative fun.
Tina had asked us to have a go at making some brooches using fabrics that melt around the edges and then layering them up and beading the middles. As you will all know we are happy to have a go at anything and have even surprised ourselves how successful they are so far. I still have finishing touches to put to mine but of course Twiglet has already finished hers and will probably have put them on her blog today :-)
As you can imagine Tuesday had to be a catch up day and although I did nip out first thing for a quick hair cut I spent the rest of the day head down at the sewing machine :-) [ that is apart from a quick coffee break mid morning with Twiglet and another mid afternoon with my Tuesday coffee friend].....well, a girl just has to have some fun :-)
I have lots and lots on my 'to do' list as well as clearing my 'to do' rail...
- Make Christmas cards using my fab fabrics
- Finish off my brooches started Monday
- Finish off my lap blanket you will have seen on prev posts
- Make a Mr Tumble for my Granddaughter's birthday [this weekend!]
- Make some flower balls that I saw on Suz's blog
- ........the list goes on and on :-)
As I'm still catching up on clearing my rail today, and of course as I clear some yet more arrives, I will be doing my best to blog hop in between jobs. Thank for dropping in and leaving your lovely comments. Please pop over to Julia's blog to catch up on other crafting spaces.
Now just a quick snap to make you smile. You will have seen that beautiful daughter of mine on the previous post trying on those gorgeous dresses for her up and coming Wedding. Last night was a gathering of the clan here so that she could see her little niece P to give her some early birthday presents. Little P sat down with Aunty M and excitedly opened her presents and was thrilled with them all but especially when Aunty M tried out one of them for size.....
It's a Peppa pig fancy dress outfit with a hat and maybe, just maybe this could be the style of the head dress for her Wedding? Little P thought she looked wonderful :-)
