I made a sale on folksy yesterday! Sorry, the excitement still hasn't left me, maybe when I have sold more it'll be less thrilling but I hope not! I love to check my mail in the morning and find an 'instant payment' notice from paypal, it sets me up for the day!
I completed Elizabeth's costume and gave her a crash course in tying the ring sling (am so glad she's not taking a real baby)! I also made a linen shawl and tried to recreate a Celtic pattern with fabric paint but it wasn't great. Kae-Lei loved it though so she's going to wear it today to liven up her costume. I made her an embroidered felt brooch last night to pin it shut. No pictures at the moment but I have an insider at school so there may be some 'action' shots later!!!
I sat up very late last night knitting beads with Simon at my side surfing for 'old' songs. We sang along to this and Simon yet again told me that he wants this playing at his funeral when the coffin slips behind the curtain! I remembered wanting to look like this, I so wanted that lipstick!! And we found this (it does have a rude word in so don't look if you're easily offended) that made us laugh out loud!! And we listened to this because I love it and we listened to this because when I said search for Fuzzbox I think Simon had something else on his mind.....you know who I mean though, don't you, you can admit to knowing all the words, you are amongst friends!
And I managed (whilst singing) to complete all the beads for an order and have strung them together this morning. It's not very sunny though so the pics are not great;
I am really loving the black bracelet with just one striped bead, will be making one for me when I get time!! The other set is purple mohair and the colour is stunning (can't really see it though) but I had forgotten what a pig it is to knit with mohair, especially on this small scale, too fluffy and fiddly! Pleased with the end result though.
Today's crafty tasks are to make a dozen or so ice skate cards (another fiddly job, sewing laces into paper boots!) for the fair, do some layered daisy cards and sew some more tree decorations (these are cut out and ready to go). Not sure how much I'll get done though as Nathaniel has the runniest nose and the foulest temper this morning and it is very cold and I am very tempted to just go and get into bed with him and snuggle because that is all he really wants. We'll see....
