bad blogger and pesky reindeer

Well, it's a disgrace I know, I haven't blogged since August, I have been a VERY BAD BLOGGER and am feeling disgusted with myself, especially since I have recently had a little flurry of new followers, welcome lovely new people!!! My last post saw me at my sons wedding which seems like such a long time ago now. Since then I have had a week away with my grandson in beautiful Fife, this was in early September. We were staying right next to a beach so Joshua had loads of fun playing here....


While in Fife the lovely Aileen Clarke contacted me and invited me for tea and scones to her beautiful rural cottage from which she runs her very successful business Aileen Clarke Crafts. It was amazing to meet such a talented felt artist and I came away feeling very inspired.........and got straight to work to prepare for the mighty 4 day event that is Living North. Week after week spent felting, sewing, knitting and allowing myself very little time off. Anyway, it was worth it as Living North was very successful for me....


....best sellers were recycled reindeer and owls



......that was the beginning of November, since then I have exhibited at a Ladies Shopping Evening and added  to my list of stockists as my work can now be found for sale at a lovely cafe with craft gallery called 'MADE' in my home town of Whitley Bay...

Right now I'm preparing for next weekends Winter Fair @ St Mary's Heritage Centre in Gateshead, Woodhorn Museum Christmas Fair and The Dome Christmas Fair in Whitley Bay at the beginning of December and a stint at my local market in Tynemouth. So ....the making continues....more reindeer, more owls, more felting and sewing....phew...I'm really looking forward to getting my feet up after Christmas when I will hopefully get back to regular blogging
Bye for now

I'm enjoying following all your colourful creations and wooly updates on facebook (my current profile pic is of last years felty Christmas robins...)Different platforms enable different methods of communication and varying picture styles. You have been really busy..its great to read your news wherever you may be!
