I haven't been feeling at my best for a while now but my Craftyness has still been around. So I thought it about time to show what I have been up to in November.
I sell quite a few Mugs in my Shop and online http://www.wendyscraftshop.co.uk/ourshop/cat_259075-Gifts.html
So thought it would be nice to offer a wrapping service to. Here is an example of what you can receive.
Any Sweets can be added and a tag with the message of you choice.
I had an order for a maternity Card and this is how it came out. Really quite different from my normal style but I love it and really enjoyed making this one.
I also found this really cool tutorial here http://lifeofperks.blogspot.com/2010/09/recycling-news.html So I had a go. This was so much fun and mainly free apart from the paint. They are a bit hard to make first time round but the end result is well worth it. I keep all my wool in these boxes now. I love love love them.
Well thats a little of what I have been up too, May be back shortly.
Thank you for following my Blog. I love reading messages left. xx

Card Class at the Shop. We started Christmas Cards, Stamp I had from last year, Stamped onto shrink plastic and made a matching charm.
This card is downloaded from this wonderful ladies site here;
She has some amazing designs and full card tutorials. I love her site.
The card I made above was all printed on one A4 sheet. Brill.
This then got me thinking that I could maybe cut this template out of fabric and stitch around it. So I did haha and this is what I got.
So then I remembered I had a sock owl tutorial saved so as I had made two Owls I thought I'd go for a third. So here is my first ever Sock Animal.
Ha ha again he's far from perfect but I love him.
I think I must have bought the stretchiest socks ever though lol I could have filled this so much more it wouldn't stop stretching.

So there it is, like I've said I have not done this before, I did Crochet along with this pattern and got this;
But it hasn't been double checked yet.
Also if anyone would like to Crochet bunting for our Charity sale that would be AMAZING!!!
You can just message me here or on firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you details of where to send your finshed pieces.
Hope this inspires you to Crochet along and if anyone does find a mistake before me I would love to hear from you.
Also can anyone tell me how I can keep this message at the top of my page please. I've had a look and cant see anywhere to do this.
Thanks in advance

I've really lost my creativity and cant believe it has been for that long.
I dont know what is wrong with me but just cant seem to summon up the energy to make anything.
I have a few things to show that I have been working on but really hope my mojo comes back soon.
I think I am getting on a little better have started an adult hat I have had in my to do pile and its looking quite good. Hopefully will get it finished tonight and update tomorrow.
Well before I lost my mojo I was working on Baby hats. I wanted a simple pattern that could be converted to Boy or Girl, This is what I came up with
