Keeping busy

Well, the BF is away again this week training, so I'm home alone, yet again. He thinks he may have a couple more weeks away (he's really not keen about being away from home. He gets very homesick. I hope this doesn't lead him to do anything stupid, like jacking the job in.....) He comes home at the weekend though. I do miss him. The Mondays are the worst. The house seems kind of quiet. Then I get used to it and start to enjoy having the place to myself.
But, yes, Mondays are the worst. So I was V. busy yesterday. I hoovered upstairs, downstairs and the stairs. I washed the floors downstairs. I did the grocery shopping. I walked up to the post office with the dog to post various eBay sales and Atsukos water bottle cozy, and gave him a long walk up at Rabbit Field (one of many walks).
I listed lots more glass in my eBay shop. The star oil lamp will be hard to part with, it's one of my favourites out of this batch, but I don't have the space for all my glass *lol*
I made some beads for ZaftigMomma. No pictures yet because she reads my blog (Hi Karan! *lol*)
I finished May's page for the altered book page-a-long on Craftster. The theme I chose was Spice, which makes me think of either India or Dune (the Frank Herbert Novel), but in the end I went for India.

I made a little felted button brooch and needle-felted a flower brooch. I think it need a bit more embellishment though. It was about 1 o'clock last night when I finished felting it so I didn't get that far. I was just randomly using up scraps of fleece because I'm on a craft supplies diet (no new supplies for 3 months now! I'm using what I have. Isn't that insane? I have enough stash to carry on crafting for a while now, and don't plan to buy anything new apart from glass materials if I can help it.)

I crocheted alot more of my Short'n'Sweet. The long bit at the top is the back and the short bit hanging down is part of the right front. I think. I love the pattern it's forming with the delicate little leaves.

And here's an update on my beaded goddess. There's a bit more done now.
