Best Laid Plans

Well what a Sunday wet and windy with no chance of doing any work in the garden which is what l had planned and l'm itching to get out there with lots of ideas for a change around. My other plan has has also been kiboshed as the rest of my wool to finish the Cath Kidston cushion has also not arrived.
l cannot spend Sunday watching the TV not doing anything so l may have a look on ebay and see what l can find. Patch work could be calling me if the weather is going to be too bad over the summer.

On a totally different sunject l have been lucky enough to by a couple of items from the Orla Kiely collection from Uniqo for those of you who have been living on a desert island with no forms of communication Orla Kiely has produced a small range for Uniqo which showcases some of her famous prints but at an affordable price- if you can get them rather than buy on ebay for inflacted prices.
Here are just a few, l managed to get a shirt, 2 dresses, 2 scarf's, and 2 teashirts.

The next product launch is 31.5.12 so take a look and treat yourselves.
Have a good week.

What did l say?

Yes l had intended to renew my blog but then life has got in the way and l think my writing will be more of a pop by so sorry if anyone is reading it.

Last week l went to one on the Cath Kidston make evenings in Manchester - this had originally been scheduled for March but was cancelled so we had been waiting with baited breath for a few weeks.
This make evening was to put the beginning stitches to the crocheted cushion which come in a tin from Cath Kidston.
We had a great time with the attendees all varying from complete novices to expert crocheters - l'm a bit in the middle some experience but could do better. We had a great evening with the girls from th eshop who showed us the basics and then we got to take the tin home and complete it. l must be aloose crocheter as l've run out of wool to finish mine so have just ordered some more wool. l will post a picture as soon as its finished but to wet your taste buds this is what it should look like.

Its Time to Start Again

Well l have decided to reopen my blog l could have started again but decided to contiue with this and see if l still had any followers left - have seen that like me some of you have fallen by the wayside and others have gone from strength to strength.
l have even neglected my crafting over this time and dust has gathered round my sewing machine as well as everything that cannot find a home/hiding place.
Well l will be back with some projects to do and ideas to share so in the meantime have a good Easter Break.
