Hello! It’s Friday and I’ve been working hard on computer stuff this week (have you seen my updated Pimp Your Stitch Marker Up listings? They’re fab!). So I decided I needed a break from the screen and thought I’d dig out the Devon Sun Yarns Hand Dye Starter Kit that I bought last year. Last year, in April, my… Continue reading Rainbows!
The sun has been shining. Yes – really! After last week’s hail storms and snow, the sun came out. It was warm too…. I’ve resolved I’ve been sat in the house far too long. I live in the country (albeit adjacent to the M1 but in the middle of nowhere otherwise) so there’s plenty of… Continue reading A Walk in the Sun

When I was a teen, I used to enjoy writing stories. I took English right through to A level and always had good feed back on my short stories from my teachers and fellow pupils. Since I’ve switched from my accounting career to Yarntastic, I’ve been embracing the creative side of me that wasn’t necessarily… Continue reading My Creative Being
I can’t believe Friday has come around again so quickly!
This week I’ve been busy updating my Stitch Marker stock. It’s been lots of fun choosing the designs and putting the sets together. For Dog Lovers out there – keep your eyes peeled as I’ve a fab selection on their way to me too!
….closely followed by kitty cuddles! I’ve completely lost track of the days this week – the long bank holiday weekend, James having Tuesday off too. Throw in being ill and I’ve no idea how it got to be Friday! So I’m sat here this morning, looking at the date and wondering how it got… Continue reading Laughter is the best medicine……
