Flower Garden Finale

Hurray! I have finally finished my Flower Garden blanket!

Look at that in all it’s glorious colourfulness! I started this waaay ago in a bid to use up all those little balls of wool that are left at the end of other projects. It’s intended use is the garden bench in the summer to make for a nice comfortable splinter free lounging area in the summer.

I’ve also been painting more fairy goblets for my eBay shop

and making nice stripy beanies also for my shop

This one is in lovely tones of blue. I’m thinking about a new line of wine glasses, with a more goth theme. Watch this space – the brain is ticking!

I’ve always loved those beaded medallions you get on a lot of tribal belts, but they never seemed to match, so I figured out how to make my own

These will make part of a purple coloured belt, I just need to find some suitable embroidered trim to use as the base.

Ok, that’s all for today folks, I’m trying to get back in the habit of blogging, I’m a little out of practice.

Happy New Year 2014

Well, here we are. 2014. I didn’t realise it had been so long since I last blogged! So what have I been doing this last year? Well, lots of doggy stuff with Jack who has just celebrated his second birthday, including a weekly dog training class, and geocaching adventures.



I’ve been dancing lots with my Tribal girls Badra Tribal and making costumes.


I’ve been trying to keep up with my yoga class. I’ve volunteered again at the Barefoot Festival.

M and I went to the Forest of Dean at Easter


and Dover in the summer and spent the fortnight looking round castles, battlefields and cliffs.

Our old caravan died and we bought a shiny new one which is like a palace compared to our old one. It has a fixed bedroom, hot and cold running water, and even a shower! I can’t wait to try it out.


I have been quite crafty recently. Up to Christmas I was making my presents, but now I’m getting back into stocking up my shop again.

Fairy Flower Brooches

Anyway, that was a very very quick update. Hopefully I will blog a little more regularly this year.
