What a dummy, I have managed to post the wrong link to the Folksy site! It is

Sparrow Primitives

I won the giveaway arranged by Sparrow Primitives! When I found out I was so excited. I hardly ever win anything!

The 2 bunnies arrived last Friday and quite frankly they are gorgeous. The texture is so chocolatey, yum yum. And they smell divine too. I can't quite place my finger on it but something like cinnamom and ginger.

Do take a look at the shop on Folksy and their website, and if you can, treat yourself or a friend, you wont regret it!

Craft fair countdown

There are only 57 make days until my very first craft fair! And I have made the grand sum of 2 items to sell!! I am getting slightly nervous as I don't have a great deal of time to make things in.

I thought that I would make some things that could be sold relatively cheaply in order to get some sales and my name out there as well as more expensive, longer to make things.

I have started with these tote bags for girls. ( I will be adding a line for boys too!). Also my first real attempt at applique. What do you think?

My daughter is in her first year at school. During the year each child brings 'Rocky' home for a week. He is a cute little dinosaur and has to join in with everything the child does during the week.

My daughter has never had a special teddy and doesn't cuddle anything in bed, but she and Rocky have been glued at the hip! He has got to go back to school on Wednesday and she is going to be heartbroken.
I have asked the lovely Folksy people if anyone would be able to make one so that hopefully she will have a special toy to snuggle with.
Here are some photo's of Rocky's adventures while he has been home with us;

Here he is doing some shopping (not very exciting for him)

Here he is trying a bit of tree climbing!

And finally a push on the swing

Wow, I logged in to find that my following has increased somewhat! Thanks guys, I hope you enjoy my blogs!

I have been a bit naughty today and been making things instead of doing my 'desk' job! My scary craft fair is in my thoughts so I decided to have a go at some 'prototypes'. I have made a mobile phone sock, which is ok. It needs a bit more perfecting but I'm happy with it. This one is going to the MIL for Mothers Day (hope she doesn't read this!!). I have also made my mum's card today. It has got a detachable flower which can be used as a brooch. I felted it myself and am quiet pleased with it. I have just got my camera out to take snaps, but battery has run out. Typical. Hopefully I can add some piccy's later, assuming of course I find the charger........

Now I have got to go to the gym. I promised hubby we would go together as it is our anniversary today. Suppose we ought to spend some child free time together!! Lets hope I will still be able to walk in the morning. Can think of things I'd rather be doing!!

Craft Fair

Oooh! I have just booked a table at a local craft fair! It is in May. Now I need to sit down and have a good think about what I would like to sell, and start making them! Start the clock.....
