Hello Everyone :)

Wow, such a long time since I last posted! I have been quite busy of late, but am hoping to start catching up on my blogging again soon :)

This is a catch up post, such a lot has happened since I last posted! I have to see a pysio about my neck, as it is causing me real problems and pain, so hopefully the pysio can help with that :) I have flu at the moment, well, it is flu season, so that is to be expected I suppose, so keeping myself warm and hydrated, and spending time catching up :) All the animals are doing good, which I am so happy about :) And in general, life is good :)

The Shows I entered were wonderful, and I came placed 4 times! I got three 1sts, and one second! I entered the Herrington Village Show first, and got 1st’s on the two craft things I entered…

and for the Sunderland Horticultural Show, I entered the Venetian Opera Bag…

which came 2nd….

a jumper, which originally got 2nd ( as on photo ) but has now been bumped up to 1st, as the one that came first in the Show was disqualified….

and I also entered a floral corsage…

and a hat….

which did not come placed :) I really enjoyed the shows they were wonderful, and I can not wait to enter again next year :)

A lovely friend of mine is teaching me all I need to know about designing for myself, which I am finding wonderful! I have almost finished crocheting a cardigan of my own design, and am thrilled to be designing for myself, it is wonderful! :)

Have you seen the new style of Inside Crochet magazine? It is wonderful! A new publishing company have taken over this magazine, and it is just fabulous! The patterns in it are amazing, as are the articles, photography and layout of the magazine, I love it, and have earmarked so many patterns I want to do, lol, there is not enough hours in the day! But at least now I have the wool to do it! A few months ago, my local wool shop, Kemps, had a massive sale on, and were practically giving the wool away! They had bought all the stock from a closed down wool shop, and were selling it off super cheap, a 500g  bag ( or more sometimes ) of wool for only £1.00, and they had all kinds of wonderful wool, mohair, pure wool, DK, aran, brushed wool, cotton, all kinds! So I was constantly in there ( as were so many others ) buying sack fulls at a time, lol, I got loads, so am delighted with my purchases, and now have a stash big enough to last a life time, lol :)

There is a lot here, I know, and it looks like, with the amount I bought, I must of spent a fortune, but I didn’t, it was all so cheap, and too much of a bargain to pass up on :) So I was constantly in Kemps, when this sale was on, spending every spare penny I had on it, as this kind of bargain will never come around again! :) I got some cardboard boxes, and spent some time sorting it all out, according to colour, so when I want to do a project, it is easy to find :) I also labelled all the boxes, writing on each box how many number of balls of each type of wool is in there, eg 40 DK, 30 4ply ect… I do like to be organised, lol :)

Just a few examples ( above ) of my need to be organised, lol :)

Hasn’t this year just flown over! I can not believe Christmas will be upon us soon! Time to start on my Christmas crochet I think!

I am going to try my best to blog more regularly again, and read blogs again too :) So hopefully, I’ll be doing another blog post pretty soon :)

Until then, bye for now everyone, I hope you all have a wonderful day :) :) :) :)
