Hope you have all had a good week, our weather has been a bit disappointing again lately rather a shame after that spell of sunshine we were all beginning to enjoy. What about the Olympics? Haven't we had some fantastic results?
I've had a very bitty week really, not getting much done at all. I did manage to put out a few posters to advertise my workshops and I have just been preparing one for the Hobbycraft Store as I am doing a Crochet Flower Workshop in their Kingsteignton store on 14th September and I have agreed to do another workshop for Social Fabric over in Totnes, a new venture for a lady called Caroline so I hope it goes well for her. When you look back at it, maybe I have achieved a something.
I wanted to share a couple of things with you. I had a 25% off voucher to use in Hobbycraft which had to be used by today - so as it was raining extremely hard all day it was an ideal opportunity to pop down for a bit of retail therapy. Look what I bought!! It is so scrummy!
fingerless gloves I absolutely love it. I had to buy 3 balls just in case I found a lacey cardigan or jumper pattern, but a pretty drapey scarf would also be wonderful. I wondered whether I should design my own jumper, although Kidsilk Haze may not be a particularly suitable yarn for a beginner designer to start on!!! I'll let you know.
You may remember a short while ago I made 'Maisy' a little elephant. Well I promised a dear lady I would make one for her to keep for when her great-grandaughter came over. Unfortunately I didn't have enough of the cotton thread I used for Maisy so had to use something a little thinner. As you can imagine she came out just a little smaller!
Sharon Ojala. If you click on her name it will take you to her blog where you will find the pattern. Talking about names, any preferences for this little cutie?
Ooh one last thing! A lovely lady over at Christmas Pie Crafts is looking for Friday Guest Bloggers she says
"If you are ready, willing and able to give it a go, please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with Friday Guest Blog in the subject area.

Many thanks for your help and I am looking forward to reading lots of fantastic articles and sharing them with the rest of the crafting world."
So if you would like to direct a little more traffic towards your blog just get in touch! It really isn't as daunting as it sounds!
Ok now I'm off over to Handmade Monday to see what everyone else has been up to and I may even have a little look to see if I can find any Kidsilk Haze Stripe patterns. Have a great week everyone, bye x
