So I have been making a few bits and bobs still while being poorly. I'll post pictures of my makes at the end. It's been a strange few weeks with everything and the time has just flown by but I've still managed to find time to make some items. The cellulitis in my ear and neck caused so much pain and I was on iv antibiotics for a week. Still on antibiotics but tablet form now so able to be happy at home.

Wow where has the time gone?? I have been naughty not posting this past week but I have reason. One evening last week I stupidly fell over and hurt my ribs. I must say the pain I've had has been worse than childbirth lol, mostly because it's gone in longer than a few days. I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to pain so therefore I have been taking it easy and have also been laid up for a few days. But this in mind I still have found time to craft, well crochet and make some lovely tutus. My 2 year old little girl is performing her ballet dance this weekend and I was asked to make the tutus for the girls, 9 to be precise. I only manage to capture 4 of the girls wearing the tutus but they look so cute. I also managed to finish off my daughters crocheted top, which is sooooo cute, oh and maybe a few bits of jewellery. I just no matter how poorly cannot craft, unfortunatly or fortunately it's in my nature and without it I would be lost.
Today I went wool shoping with a friend so one of my next projects is a teddy bear. I quite fancy having a go at amigurumi so just might google patterns tonight. So that's 8 days with 12 items. Not bad for a poorly one lol
Right tea time is now calling so off to feed the monkeys
Lots of love.

So although it has been a busy weekend I manage to fit in some crafts. Mind you my time was limited as today is my little boys 5th birthday and we spent most of the afternoon searching the northwest for skylanders as he wanted to buy them with his birthday money.
So yesterday I managed to make some polymer clay pendants. I imprinted them with a cameo and use silver dust to enhance. Today as my time was limited I made a beautiful angel pendant, just need to add a chain to it now.
Take a look and let me know what you think!!!

Today has been a busy day but as always I manage to fit my crafts in and I am really determined to complete this challenge as it's been an ongoing one since 2011 for myself. So today I crocheted some flowers. I am in the middle of crocheting a dress for my little 2 year old and wanted a few flowers to add into it so I did a mixture. I am half way through the dress and hoping to finish it by tomorrow so I can show you all. It's very pretty. Hope you've all had a good day today.
I've also decided to loose weight so will probably post about this too. I need to loose 3 stone as I have been very lazy the past 6 months and need to sort myself out. So watch this space with the weight loss.

Well another year has passed and it's been one heck of a busy year. Unfortunatly I've not updated my blog this year but I am in a very determined mood and have decided this year I will make an item each day. I've been creating jewellery and learnt how to crochet this year but also still love my sewing so my items will be a mixture of crafts. I am also going to take some courses this year learning new crafts. I had a dabble in decopage and porclain clay during December but would love to learn how to do silversmithing. This year I turn the dreaded big 40 so this is something I would like to do before that day.
Anyway off to get rid of my terrible hangover and create something beautiful. Watch this space
