Give a Little Whistle...

As Jiminy Cricket said to Pinocchio 'When you get in trouble and you don't know right from wrong/give a little whistle/give a little whistle'.

This time last week I really wasn't in a good place, but it's suprising what a difference a week can make. I'd just finished an assignment and I didn't have a job to go to, I didn't really know where I was going with either Rose&Bird or Partylite and I was extemely worried about money.

But today, things are looking up - I was offered another assignment starting next week which will leave me with 2 full days a week to dedicate to my own projects and I'll have some money!

I've also found my creative side again, and I'm working on several new lines to take to the craft fair on Saturday. Pictures coming soon!

Everything must go!

I need to make some space (and some money!), so I'm having a grand bazaar of shop stock. Please take a look at the items available and make me an offer on anything you fancy (except the quilts) through the blog.

Many thanks

Sunny Days

Haven't had much time for crafting or blogging recently - the allotment has been a hot-bed of activity since Friday. After a few hiccups, with Mr R&B's Argos special drill not being up to the task - the base of the shed was finally completed. Saturday saw the walls and roof going on, with the felt and window being completed yesterday. I spent today painting the shed blue - everyone else has brown or green, but I've always got to be different to the rest!
I'm sure there'll be a few friendly mutters from the old-timers - but who cares?

I pointed out the other day that allotment holders are much like their plants - you don't see them all winter, then the first bit of sunshine and they're out, digging and planting for the coming year.

We got our overgrown plot at the end of February and in just a few weeks, it's starting to look like a proper allotment. We were quite lucky as the council got contractors in to clear a lot of the rubbish and turn the plots over, but we still have a way to go.

We plan to get the potatoes in shortly and then start planting out everything that's growing on at home. Our dining table looks like Kew Gardens at the moment!

What was I thinking?

Quick Reminder


Just a quick one to remind you that it's the monthly Craft Fair in St Michael's Church, Bath this Saturday (eeeeekk!)

I've been alternating sewing, swearing at the machine, stuffing birdies and moments of panic that I may not be ready, but I'm now on the home straight!
I felt quite queasy at the thought last night, but I'm actually quite looking forward to it and to quote Doris Day 'que sera, sera'!

Hoping I'll see some of you there, please do say hello!
