Christmas Wreaths

Well, some spare time today saw me making some Christmas Wreaths so thought I'd share with you. They are so simple to make with some festive ribbon and a little imagination. These are for my niece who has a gorgeous flat and plans a very traditional themed Christmas so I hope these fit in. More planned later this week so watch this space!

I've also been making some pretty coaster sets courtesy of Martha Stewart. I've been making them all Summer out of pretty vintage cottons and now have made some with some great Moda Christmas fabics. I thought you might like the tutorial to make a great little Christmas gift.

Have lots more planned in the next week or so, the weather looks like it's goning to be good for Crafting!

Howdy Blog World!

Well, where did those few months go! 
I have been keeping up with the Craft World via your blogs and FB and am so pleased to see so many of you enjoying some great Christmas Sales.
I am still enjoying making things for friends and family, and am looking forward to returning to online selling sometime next year.

Meanwhile this blog may turn into the ramblings of my daily life and finds, as the need to 'Promote, Promote, Promote' has gone - one thing I admit I don't miss!
I am on the waiting list for shoulder surgery, hopefully in the New Year - it's keyhole surgery which I had on my other shoulder, with a good quick recovery as long as you stick with the physio - unfortunately I have absolutely no willpower when it comes to having to exercise at home!

A visit to a big shopping centre yesterday has finally convinced me to do all my Christmas shopping online, otherwise I need the shops to open just for me, like The Queen! So, a day of internet surfing as we used to say in the old days, and a hunt for something a bit different to socks and scarves! Enjoy your Sunday everyone. xxx
