Optimistically, I try out the camera on my phone in panorama mode…

Been busy making loads of these big fellahs for a wee while now and only recently finished turning some of them into necklaces. A couple are already being worn about town and one has even been away to the Carribean!
So two more are ready now and listed today on the wee folksy shop

So where on earth did all that time go? Happy new 2013 to one and all!

Went off up the hill this morning to take a photy of  the bleak owing to the dull light and foggy conditions.  Nothing too exciting to see however but found a wee bit of colour and an unexpected primrose. In fact it looks like there will be a super bank of them later on. Cheers!

The Bleak!

Decaying Hips - January

Unexpected Primrose - January

Another sunny day, just as well as the Norton Priory conservation volunteers were all set to play and picnic in the NP Walled Garden. Great food and company 😉


Here we are inhabiting the craft cabinet at the Brindley Arts Centre (www.thebrindley.org.uk). Lots of cute wee things from the fabulous Replic’elfs and planetaye-ayes! Goan have a nosey, we’ll be there for the next few weeks. 😉

A wee sneaky peek at some of the wee, tiny things I’m putting in the craft cabinet at The Brindley this weekend. I’m really pleased how these turned out. 😉

After treating myself to a nice book (100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet) I found it difficult to stop. But I also had to get a wee encyclopedia of crochet  since I’m still a novice with the single needle. I have tied the primroses into a wee posy that sits neatly inside a new Ikea shot glass, the shamrock and thistle are single testers and I did already have some appropriate colours handy. Overall pretty pleased with making flowers and can sit watching telly whilst getting on with a few leaves.
The hinged frame is covered with a set of floral stamps, I really should give it an other coat or two of varnish but one will do for now I think. Patience is not my strong suit when it comes to watching paint dry!

sweet heart Card

Yup, the next card and pressie time of year is nearly upon us so… I though I should make good use of a valentinie replicake photy by turning it into a card.

It is available to buy at Redbubble.

Some of the matching heartshaped cakes are still available in the wee planetaye Folksy shop.

A seasonal selection of festive Folksy’ness, chosen to reflect decoration rather than gifts for ME! (don’t say I never give you anything!)
So lookee here for wee helpers, wintery characters, mini mouthfulls, stars, holly, misletoe, conifers, seasonal sentiments and all the  colours of the xmassie rainbow! …and a wee dog under the misletoe
