Website Update

Finally I have something interesting to blog about!

I have updated my website with some of my Christmas bits. Managed to get Rob to take some photos (which aren't great so I will be re-taking them at a later date when weather is better) and then we added them to the website last night. He even showed me a few things so that I can do more of it myself.

Anyway, here are some of the items that I added. More to come soon, hopefully will get round to doing some today if Noah continues to have a lazy day, poor little lad isn't feeling all that well!

So I promised you a post about what I was making on Saturday and although its a day later than promised here it is. I made some mini bunting. Its 1.5 metres long with 5 inch long buntings (if thats the way to say it), 9 of them in 2 different Christmas fabrics. They are hopefully going on my website in the next day or so (depending on when Rob lists them!).

So have showed you the Robins I have made, well I have made some puddings and am going to be making a number of other items too, all of which I will be putting on my website and will be showing you over the next few posts.

Cat and Mouse

Picture this....

I'm sat in my lounge at the coffee table pinning some Christmas Mini Bunting whilst talking to my Mum on the phone and watching Xfactor, (yes I know multi-tasking) and I hear a squealing high pitch noise in the adjoining dining room. I finish my phone call, and ask if anyone else can hear the noise, and then I realise the cat has brought in a little mammal, mouse, shrew, I don't know what it is but its small, furry and running around being chased by a rather large cat, who keeps catching it and then dropping it. After alot of screaming on my behalf and crying from Grace, chasing by the cat and instructions from Rob we finally catch the small furry creature and after some heavy pursuation I convince Grace that we can't keep it as its missing its Mummy and Daddy so it gets taken outside and released but not before these photos are taken!! (the brown blob in the box is chocolate cake as Grace insisted the animal must be hungry and would love some of Mummys chocolate cake before he was released)

Will show you some of the bits I've been working on today in my next post possibly tomorrow.

No Angel

Grace I admit is no angel but she does look rather cute in this pair of Angel Wings I made today. Another 2 being made for her little friends and then I promised Noah a little something, but you will have to keep checking back to see that!!!

Other than that I have made cute robin decorations, which I'm going to sell individually, and in boxes of 5. I'm not sure how well it shows up but the red breast is red glitter felt.

More to come soon.

Racing Cars

Well, this weekend was my wonderful husband Robs Birthday, so aswell as working on some Christmas items (will be able to start showing them to you soon) I made 36 muffin size cupcakes, a mix of chocolate, lemon and plain, all with butter icing and decorations, which I took to his office, but failed to take any photos, sorry. And as Rob works for Force India Formula One team at Silverstone I treated him to lunch at Silverstone golf club which was very nice and I surprised him with a Birthday Cake, yes you guessed it, in the shape of a formula 1 car!

Have been out picking fruit this morning so will be making more chutney and jam so will keep you posted on what types I try out and how it all goes

Will be back shortly to show you some more craft items which I'm currently working on.
