Where does it go? One minute there is space and time to do lots of things and then the next there is no space at all! Last week I seemed to spend my time catching up. Catching up with ironing and washing and visiting and quizzing – (Mr A likes to go quizzing! I go and scribe with the occasional right answer!!). I didn’t get to do any gardening because when I was here it was raining. And the rain really came on Thursday! We had 2.5cm in half an hour!! Followed by steady rain for quite a while. Boy did it rain. Manhole covers were lifting, roads were rivers and the water falls created by the cars were amazing! It also knocked out our phone lines, so when I had the time to write the next post I couldn’t! Frustrating or what!? But anyway I am here now and there is time to show you what my 20 minutes have lead to….
Two more have been added to these three.
I tend to make five of things at first, to see if they will sell, but this is a great little stash buster so one or two more will probably appear.
This is the first of the snowmen, which are just right for little hands to hold. I have made another one this weekend, but he can wait for his buddies!
A happy hour was spent sitting beside my Son threading and crocheting these bracelets. I need to go to Hobbycraft and buy the fastenings!
Much to my amazement they all sold last time round!
More hooky business and lots of starched stars….
These are so satisfying to make as they only take 10 minutes at the most. They just need hanging strings. And finally I found the time to go to Heath’s Country Store – oooooo I just love this shop!! – to get the lemon ball of wool to finish my attic24 Granny blanket. Oh I also bought all the little runner up prizes!
Before I go I must give my niece a plug. She has three little ones, but is still finding the time to start her own business, making and painting wooden word art. She has called it The Wooden Word Art Company and it is well worth a look. Dare I say Christmas presents? Anyway time moves on and I must away.
