When the rain comes...

I'm over the moon today because I've sold another owl, who is going to live in one of my favourite parts of the UK - Norwich.  I did not particularly enjoy, however, braving the rain with the box and buggy to walk to the post office! 

I was very positive about the rain until this morning, even creating a treasury to celebrate it:

As we've got a hosepipe ban here, it's been great for everyone's garden BUT I didn't realise quite how hard it is to 'pop out' now that I've got my gorgeous baby boy!

Anyway, enough moaning!  I've nearly finished a new owl but will have to keep any new ones aside for my village fair which is the weekend after next. 

After looking for ages online for a suitable display to put my owls and cats on, my dad came up trumps and made me one out of an old wardrobe!  It's good to know that even though I'm nearly 40, he is still there to help with things like this!  Will post the photo of my stall after the fair so you can let me know what you think.

Off now as baby is asleep so going to do a bit of housework!

Well this is SUCH a better day than yesterday!  Both myself and my little boy are better so the knitting needles are out and ready to use later on.  I feel a new owl coming on.

I made this knitted cat the other day but haven't been able to list until today.  Hope you like him.

Buy him here at my Folksy shop

I've just booked a stall at CRAFTtest - an online craft fair!  It's held on 9-16 June and has over 100 stalls!  I am linking items from my Folksy shop and have got everything crossed for a few sales!  For more information see here:

I'm also over the moon that my pirate owl reached Canada and that the lady who bought him loved him!!  Woo hoo!!

That's it for today - I'm currently in bed because my baby has given me his tummy bug!  Thank goodness for mother-in-laws!

Well I'm over the moon because I've sold my pirate owl to a lady from Canada!  I'm so happy he's going to a good home in my favourite country!  I spend my honeymoon in Canada and it's the only country my husband may persuade me to move to one day.

I've just finished a new pirate owl to replace him in my shop - will pop a photograph on tomorrow.

Crochet bags - new and up for sale!

I've always enjoyed making colourful crochet bags but have been concentrating on my owls and cats.  I've just bought a lovely sewing machine though, which is perfect for lining bags with!  So...I've listed two new funky bags.  Let me know what you think...
