Summer Break

We're now into our school summer break - 'Little S' took a heap of work and drawings home. I particularly liked this one about the 'Seaside Code' - it's written in Gaelic as they are taught bi-lingually. Some of the rules seem a little harsh/confusing: 'Keep out of the Sea??!!!', 'Don't lift animals?' - not sure if that one refers to the sheep, a bit heavy for a child to lift, hehe :)

I got this lovely Giveaway parcel in the post from Tartan Kiwi last week - how fab is that?: drawing pins, magnets, book mark and zipper pouch, all beautifully handmade in this gorgeous fabric - I was delighted!

Some little snippets of more craft-fair stock - hanging decs in various shapes, which were fun to make . . .

Guess what, after all my stock-building, my craft fair has been postponed because it apparently clashes with another fair on the same day, boo hoo! However, there will probably be one the following month (August), so I can chill out a bit and take a breath! It would be nice now to build up some online stock now, so we'll see how that goes :) Today though, I must get my own Giveaway parcels sorted, I hope to add a couple of extra goodies in them, so better get on!

I'm so glad that I got an unexpected day's annual leave from the office job this week - what a treat! Childcare sorted and a little extra crafting time for me - hooray!

Hey Alison, how nice to have some breathing space till the market and a day's leave from work. I'm sure you will put the time to good use ..........

Lovely giveaway goodies from Tartan Kiwi, gorgeous colours, so bright and Summery. Hope you are enjoying some nice Summery weather for the holidays.

It's drizzly rain and cloud here, today, loving it and wish I could sit by the heater and do some crochet, but visitors coming tonight so I better do a bit of housework first.....

Thanks for you comment Alison! The wheel guard thingummy is such a good idea isn't it. I think maybe you could make a pretty nice one out of some tweed... I can see that in my mind's eye - understated, timeless classic bike apparel :-) I might have to find an old jacket and make one now, if only I was any good at sewing!!
