A bit of this and that

Hope You all are ok-Warm and cozy ,its not summery in my part at all,dark and wet and windy :-(
Went for a walk this morning and it was nice,but when got back home -oh dear silly old rain and wind back to naughtiness
I've been busy making some things. On Saturday little man who's 1year old went to a birthday party. Party was for 2 girls (2 and 4 ) so there was a lot of kids.But my little man was only interested chasing balloons lol
So as a present for girls I made two dolls
These 2 are made using Tildas doll pattern . Hair and clothes are different than Tildas ones,but I am bad at following patterns I always need to do something different :-)
And two little girls liked them - so that's all that matters

In evening ,to calm my self down ( after all the party buzz ) i did some crochet.
Made some coasters witch are available to buy. I've sold quite few sets and getting requests in for more. I love the selling part-sometimes . Sometimes I like the things I made so much that i can't let go  Never mind I need to grow up lol and get on with it-People like it, I shall make it and I shall sell it 

Made from Rowan All Seasons cotton, these coasters are great addition to  dinning table or kitchen
I love them , they have soft feel to them, but not too soft . Measures 5" diameter
I know there is a lot of coaster makers and sellers out there,but what can I do I like them But I can't keep all of them,and they are just another addition to my selling Items
Here is a link where the pattern comes from, i use it as a base, but i do like changing things and make it bit more me. Other set I'm working on has Me in it ,will see how it will come out in the end .

                                         I better go back to my hook now, before it gets too late .
                            Here is a photo to remember the sunny days - hope sun comes back soon
                                      My flowers need some sun-they don't look happy
                                           That is all for now,hope to see you soon back here

rainy days and a bit of crochet

It hasn't been nice around here weather wise. Last weekend we manage to catch a bit of a nice and sunny weather. Me and Mr took our 2 youngsters for a ride round sussex. It was nice for a change,we went to Oxted for charity shops :-)


A bit of village coffee shop

Coffee for me :-)

 Not much photos - i forgot my camera , so been using my phone . But it all went nice, wish i had more photos -but never mind-something is better than nothing x

But of course sun can't stay out for too long ,so out comes my yarn and crochet hook to cheer me up

               Summery wrist warmers for those chilly days
Pattern comes from Crativeyarn-   They are so easy to make and are so lovely ,that I can't get enough of them

I've used Debbie Bliss Baby cashmerino yarn , and it is the softest things i ever had on my hands :-)
I'm wearing them every day now. And just to make sure i don't have way too much of them i decided on a new project -cowl for cool summer evenings - its just a beginning but hoping to finish by end of weekend

  I hope you all are having a good week and lets hope Sun will come out for a weekend.

Hello to everyone ,who will be crazy enough to read my rumbles and maybe even brave enough to follow lol :-)

This will be my space to escape, when life's craziness becomes just a bit too much for me.
