Oh well I'm gonna have a day off from worrying about it today and get back on the horse tomorrow (even though at this moment I think I'm possibly riding a dead one) and I'm going to have a card making session in my craft room today. Not sure what I'll make yet but hey, I'm all up for spontanaity. Anyway hopefully I'll have some pics for you tomorrow or Monday of said card making session...oh and a crcoheted baby blanket that I just need to sew in some ends on.
Take care and enjoy your weekend

Hope you like them but I really must dash and get a bit more done on the baby blanket I'm crocheting at the moment.
See you soon

Some things don't change though, my desk is still a mess....and a big mess at that. And this isn't all of it either!
You'll see 2 boxes that I'm playing with, my pig radio, my sewing machine that has actually been used more this week than in all the years that I've had it (about 8!), cones of wool, some scraps of fabric from the bits that I've been making with the sewing machine - see previous post for details - actually there's too much rubbish on my table even for me, so once I've got the house full of housework done, I might tidy this up a bit again and than try and fit in a bit of blogging. If only BT would sort our internet out so that we can both go online at the same time and take phones calls, I could get back into the swing of blogging and hopping once again...and thats something else I've got to do today, chase them up as a manager was supposed to be getting in contact over a month ago!
Oh well, I'd best post this and say hello on the Stamping Ground http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/2011/07/whats-on-your-workdesk-wednesday-112.html and get cracking or I'll run out of time to do anything.
Take care and I hope to get round to some of you soon

I think I could have made it a lot better, but me being me, I had to rush in and not really think it through properly. All I did was draw our Union flag on a note pad in the right colours and then set the pinking shears to work. It does have the look I was sort of after, but I do wish now that I'd put better edges on it - maybe even tried ironing where I wanted it to fold first, but hey I had fun and thats what it's all about now isn't it.
After making Bobs bandana I was feeling a tad patriotic so I made this little ACEO (now remember these are essentially ATCs that are sold instead of traded) out of the same batch of material that I had for the bandana, although I did use the other blue material as I prefered it to the gingham.
And lastly but by no means least is this little thing. It's a little pouch for hubbys air gun pellets...so that he doesn't scare the birds with his stealth like approach going "chang, chang, rattle" as they would in the tins they come in. Now instead they just see him and torment him by flying away at the last minute hehehehehe.
Anyway, the main thing is it does work and I'm pleased with it, in fact I'm very pleased with all of these pieces and I think I'm going to toddle off and make something else.
Catch you all later

I'm giving everyone a whole week to leave a comment on the picture of the giveaway items on my Facebook page to be in with a chance of winning them. As you can see, these are a lush purple colour, which I love myself, with hand sewn beads for just that little bit of sparkle on the earrings.
Anyway, i hope you like them and if you want to be in with a chance of winning them, best you get over to http://www.facebook.com/YammasCandC and leave a comment under the picture of them - they'll be in the Giveaway album http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.151443991560912.24973.119959688042676&l=10af9ec54e&type=1
Have a lovely weekend, and I hope to see you soon (metaphorically speaking that is)

This is my latest mobile phone cover. I decided my new smart fone needed a little protection, and whats better than a cosy made by hand. This one is made from very pale yellow crochet cotton, it's more a pale lemon than it shows in the photo than pastel yellow.
Hope you like it
Made by me (crocheted of course) and made from gorgeous merino wool, with me daughter modelling, is one of my latest creations. A beret to fit a child. I can also make these berets to fit adults too, but this shade of wool may not be available as it's all hand dyed in limited runs. So this is an original one off piece.
Back soon with more bits

This is my latest make, they are also available in lunch and dinner versions. I think I'll add another couple of rows on the top and the bottom on future versions as I feel these are a little too small so I'll have to adjust my pattern a little, but hey ho, nevermind...I know now :-)
Take care all
