First day at work

Evening all.
Nothing crafty from me today as I've been doing my new job at the school. I was asked on Friday afternoon by the headmaster if I would like to look after one of the little boys in class 1 until the end of the school year, as some funding has just come through for him to get some more help to get him up to speed as he has various problems. He is such a sweet little chap I had no hesitation in saying "Yes I'll do it", so I started doing that today as well as my dinnerlady job, so I've been at the school all day today with all those kids....and I've actually enjoyed myself barrels.
Anyway I just wanted to pop in and keep the blog going as I'm not having many visitors due to me not being on hardly at all while James was off with his shoulder. I'll have something for you all to look at sometime this week I reckon so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Take care now and I'll see you all soon

WHOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!! My ACEO has been featured in a blog :-)

Good morning you lovely lot and how are you all today. As you can tell I'm a little happy that the first ACEO I made (an ATC that you sell) is being featured at Uniquely Yours along with some other (in my opinion) much better mini pieces of art.
Here is a piccy of said ACEO

and here is a piccy of my latest one with is based on the design of my cousins wedding invites that I'm making at the moment.

I hope you like them both and they are both up for sale in my Folksy shop HERE if you would like to sneak a peek and possibly favourite my shop (yes I know, blatent begging but it works on hubby when I want something new hehehe).
Right well I'm off for now as I really should get dressed, catch you all later

Blue baby blanket and an update .....

Evening all. Hopefully this is the start of me being back in blogland more often once again.
Well, lets do the update first. Hubby has managed his first week back at work for 3 months with no incident. He's definitely known he's been at work though hehehehe, he's been aching like no-ones business and very tired to boot, but it's been lovely and quiet here though ☺.
Now then onto my baby blanket. This little creation has just been uploaded to my Folksy shop at the price of £20 + P&P and is made from 100% acrylic yarn so it's lovely and snuggly and warm for little ones.

Also I'm hoping to be doing some ACEOs soon to sell in my Folksy shop (for those of you that don't know an ACEO is an ATC that is sold as opposed to swopped and stands for Art Card, Editions and Originals)
Anyway, I hope you like my blanket and I'll see you all again soon.
Bye for now

Happy New Year everyone!!

Yes I am a bit late, but it is my first posting of the year!! Anyway, first things first, update on hubby. He is now back at work as of yesterday so I had a very productive day of.......housework. Saying that though I've had hardly anything to do this morning so it's not that bad now is it.
I did get one bit of crafting done yesterday though, albeit only sewing up the two pieces of ribbon crochet to the cotton crochet to make this lovely assemetric stole (assemetric because the ribbon ends have a different amount of rows).

I think I'm going to give it a wash and try to block it so that it doesn't have the wibbly edges, but once draped over your shoulders, I doubt that it'll notice to be honest. Not sure of a price for it yet hence the reason it's not in my Folksy shop yet. I'm redoing my website so I doubt it will go in there for a while, if at all.

I'm also working on a blue baby blanket, n between doing my cousins invites for her wedding. I'm over half way through them now, so she'll have them by the end of this month and I'll show you pics when she has them all sent out.
Well I' think that's it form me at the moment, but I'll be back soon.
Take care now
