Busy Few Weeks

Sorry I have broken my New Years Resolution all ready as I have failed to blog every week!

I have been very busy with baking, crafting, knitting and looking after my lovely grandchildren  - but where possible I have taken lots of photos to keep you all up to date.

I have been busy baking cup cakes for a baby shower - one of my daughters best friends is having a baby soon so all her friends arranged a surprise party. The party was lovely and everything was pink and blue in anticipation of the new arrival.

All packed up and ready to be collected

Following my baking morning  I then spent a lovely afternoon at the Whitworth Art Gallery joining in one of the Crafternoon Tea sessions and made my first button jewellery - it was great fun I made a necklace and some button rings.


I have started knitting some new stock to put onto our Folksy Shop, I have knitted some baby hats and also a pair of tiny shoes in 4ply cotton which I am pleased with - unfortunately the photograph doesn't reflect the true colour of the yarn accurately its actually a lovely soft lilac but it looks blue on the blogg.

I have also been commissioned to knit a beret for a special little girl who already has one of our hats but sadly its getting a little bit small. 

Florence wears her hat most days so its important that we replace it quickly to keep her ears warm.

                                I have designed a new beret in red I hope Florence will be pleased with it.

My business partner Pam has been on holiday soaking up the sun  - I am looking forward to her coming back so that we can get to work on more promotional ideas.

back soon Sue x
