A bit of this and that....

I realise it has been over a week since I last posted. My head has been burried in felt and thread and I neglected everything else around me, apart from Harrison.

On Sunday I had a stall at a local fair and it has consumed me for the past few weeks. I can't seem to get a balance between making my pieces and dealing with everything else around me, so this week I am on a mission to clean the flat and get organised. I have also vowed not to be consumed by crafting  again.
A big blanket of stitching will not envelope me again...I will stay grounded and realise there are other things to do!
Do you ever feel like this? Does your blogging / crafting know no limits and sweep you up into a freenzy of obsessiveness?

Luckily for me I have a fab ma who opens my eyes and gives me a reality check every now and again...she is also my stall helper and sanity keeper.

I have so many ideas in my head, and thinking about what may come to fruition that evening leaves me thinking of nothing else.
The ironing just sits there looking all forlorn, wondering when I may run an iron over them, the washing up in the bowl lays there waiting for bubbles that never come, the laundry over flowing in the basket cries out clean me, clean me.

I want it all made yesterday and just don't know where to begin, I sometimes feel like my head might explode!

These little flowers were made for a lovely lady who makes wonderful photo / scrap books.

These are teeny tiny felt bows on elastic for little ones.

A couple of new designs...Hair clip holders.

A very handy little cabinet that I got in the sale at M and S. Perfect for displaying my hand made felt and bead necklaces and bracelets.

I also took along my wedding accessories, just incase....you never know who will be passing!
Sadly on this day not many people were passing and it was a sad day for all involved.
The event was for a charity and the lack of people made what could have been a great day a very un- eventful day.

Still it didn't stop all the fun....never too young or old for a little bit of bouncy castle!

I did pass on the blow up slide, that didn't stop the little fella from having a blast so it wasn't all bad!

Here's to my week of less crefting and more every day stuff......pah.... sometimes it sucks being an adult :)

Happy week one and all.x


  1. Yep sometimes it sucks!

    I love the brooch in the second photo bottom right. Fave.

    Good luck with catching up with real life. I have been there too. It resulted in a terrible barney with the husbando. Now I try to get all the essential stuff done in record time so I can craft without guilt. It doesn't always work.....sometimes, quite often I sneak of to craft and leave the house in chaos!


  2. I simply adore those felt flower brooches! So so pretty!
