I have got so RUBBISH at blogging!! Sorry folks I think it must be the affects of winter taking their toll on me, i shall blame winter as I like to balme it for everything. The good news is I have spread my wings and opened a shop over on Folksy too. Which is fab for all you folks who like to shop in good old British £'s.
More good news - I also had my 1000th ♥ on Etsy *waving at Anna of RiverbedDesigns in New Zealand. She has a little pressie winging it's way to her as we speak!
So I will try to be better at blogging - speak soon : )

So today was Oudoor Education day..... still undecided on the school issue, so my 4 year old is staying with me, for now anyway. So off we went with the local group of home schoolers to Gilfach Nature Reserve. And what a lovely day, we had a lovely walk and saw the Salmon trying there best to get up the waterfall...it's such an amazing sight. My daughter loves fish and wanted to catch them all for tea...bless.
After lunch she did some painting and played under a huge Beech tree, while I got seriously absorbed with some willow. When I was young I made some baskets using a plastic weaving kit, but hey the real thing!! I have always wanted to have a go and have made the start of a wreath, which will be decorated with the Beech nuts we collected, and my little fishy who needs a home hanging somewhere special I think.
Happy days : )

I have spent the last few days putting the finishing touches to a few items and labelling, labelling LABELLING!
I now have 2 sleeps ( if I am lucky I will be sleeping) till the show goes up at Aberystwyth and although it has been an insane ammount of work I have really enjoyed getting it all together. I did have a bit of a *wobble* yesterday as a few things didn't go exactly how I planned them - being a bit of a control freak doesn't help!
So to help me manage the *wobbles* I have set up a practice run. It's a bit of a dark photo...but I am so proud of how it all looks together : ) It will look even better on the glass shelves... just hope I can solve the display problem of the brooches and Christmas decorations before I go completely insane!

Just back from a trip to Ibiza - my favourite place : )
I took some work with me this time - well this big bag of rainbow fluff!!
I did struggle a little with the work/holiday balance and felting seemed a bit harder in the Ibizian water but I managed to make all this and still have a super holiday.

For those of you who have been wondering why it has been so very quiet around here.....
...............meet Sally, the new addition to the family!
She was named by my little girl, after the car from Disney's Cars - bless what a very girly name for our new blue car! So I have spent hours scouring the internet and we have been on a big tour of the UK looking at cars and I have not got much work done at all - lots of catching up to do now. Feeling inspired by her gorgeous 'Jazz Blue' paintwork and she does look happy with my Valentino Van : )

I just popped into town this morning to go to the lovely fabric shop for a few supplies and look what I saw!!!! the most fantastic RAINBOW tent in the world!!!!!!!!!! I had a 'happy attack' and felt rather strange for an hour or so : ) It's part of a funky little festival that is going on this weekend in Mach - which if I wasn't so busy I would have loved to go to. Maybe tomorrow?
This was a huge piece of rainbow felting I have been working on today, so big I had to move onto the floor - I need a 2 metre table I think! I have also been making some more bits of plain coloured felt for some other projects - and wow.... I have had a serious felty workout today!
Look at the FAB puzzle Rio came back with - how retro.... I love it, plus it was from an attic sale so a bargain for £2 and it was handmade locally too - what a find.
