In between times

Wow what a busy time!  The run up to Christmas is a busy time for all parents and this year was especially busy with knitting on top of all the normal family preparations.  I managed to get everything bought wrapped and cooked and of course all my orders knitted and posted out in time but it did mean some very late nights and early starts.  Now in this inbetween time I am catching up on some much needed r and r with the family as well as planning new projects for next year in the shop.

The run up to Christmas

A relaxing week of family old and new, fresh air and peaceful places, food, knitting, table football and fun.

Talented Crafters

One of the great things about Etsy is the team spirit and support between sellers.  I am a member of many teams although at the moment I have so much knitting to do I haven't been as active a team member as I would like.  Many of the teams promote trading between sellers and I have been luck enough to be able to trade some knitted goodies for some lovely jewelry

This one is from EnchantedLeaves.  Its amber and copper and I adore it.  Mr T tried to convince me I really needed a golden Snitch but to no avail!

These two are from DoodlePip Designs, a lovely UK seller with lots of whimsical necklaces and rings etc.

The last picture is of my new toy in a custom made case.  After being in the dark ages for years and years I have treated us to a tablet.  The children love it (almost as much as me) and it's making my work a lot easier as I can do my online "stuff" so much quicker.  The case was custom made to fit the tablet when it has its bumper on by Kirsty from Kirstylicious.  I contacted her at the end of last week and the case arrived on Wednesday, great service and a really gorgeous well made item :)

If you are after some handmade goodies for Christmas gifts I can thoroughly recommend all three sellers for their quality and great customer service!

Winter is coming knit faster!

Its been so so busy around here with usual Christmas preparations, lots of knitting and Miss E's 4th birthday.  

A custom order for Newborn Baby Posing Company.

Early birthday morning!

On our way to our home ed group.



These two were inseparable.

Sunday fresh air.
