The Red Sponge has gone!

Do you remember this necklace. Made by Janice and one of the most expensive and stunning things on (shameless plug!!)
Well, we were invited to take our jewellery to a Macmillan Coffee Morning today and guess what. I know, obvious or I would not be on has sold!
Well done Janice and thank you to Gina for the sale. A percentage of the sale has gone to the charity along with 50% of sale price on the items we took that are listed on The Craft Cupboard I was telling you about before.
A good day all round I say. I could not go because I was tied to a switchboard all day, but I had fun too, Fun Friday really. Off to a workshop tomorrow to learn a new stitch...wish me luck!

New Tonight!

Hello Campers! Here is my new necklace, hot off the press. Well, kitchen table really. I do like this but must not keep it. I am making for the shop we supply in town and Selina wants party styles so I have made this and a couple of charm bracelets. The bracelets have large 12mm pearls on instead of charms. I am pleased with them too! She needs another 10 items....
I am now going to take my bragging head to bed.
p.s if you want to buy it go to my Misi link and you will find it!!

What a Surprise!

My last job of the day is to pop onto the forums at Misi and Folksy to see what has happened and to check my emails in case my daughter in upside down land had sent me a message. So, I absently clicked the send/recieve button and nothing seemed to happen, so clicked it again...........and look what happened!!

I stared at the screen thinking, for a second, it was a glitch, then suddenly blushed with excitement!!!

TWELVE of my items had sold just that minute to one lovely lovely lady. Whooppee!!
They sold on This is my destash shop. I have been teaching workshops for nearly 5 years now and always make at least two samples for the ladies to look at. I sold 5 items the first weekend I opened up and then nothing until last night. Still excited this morning. I did not get to sleep for ages last night planning how I would wrap and post them all. My jiffy bags will not hold all twelve!!

Hope you do not think I am showing off...but good news does not come along every day. Now, where is that tissue paper and ribbon??????

Pudding has Arrived

This garden ornament is a replica of an large ornament my Aunt had when I was a child. She sat in the 'front room' and I loved her. She was probably from a fairground and was painted garish colours. I then found this one at a nursery about 15 years ago and had to have her. She was named SHY GIRL. There was a Shy Boy with her but it did not have the same appeal. I am not a great one for garden ornaments but she hides behind the foliage, we don't see much of her in the summer but she peeps out in the winter!!
Anyway, I digress. The real subject of the picture is Pudding. He is having a chat in the garden to my little girl. He was posted by Anna from The Warren on Tuesday but did not arrive until Sat because of problems at the post office. So I thought he would like some fresh air!!! Yes I am as mad as Anna....He is made from a pair of Christmas Socks and is for Alice shhhhh!
For those of you not in the know, he is a Baby Sock Bunny!
