Don't get your Knickers in a twist its just a little busy here.....


I guess saying a little busy is a easy way to describe the hectic runs I have been doing. I have knitting to churn out and a neverending order for Coathangers as well. I got the knickers done and finished and am half way on the vest. 2 pairs of bootees made and as normaltrying to get other things done for the shows and decorations. Well I accidently killed the glue gun so have to get another first.
I have also had the 2 eldest Nephews Formals to photograph once again. So here at the Lighthouse are Nephew 2, Nephew 1 and his Girlfriend.

For now its time for rest and Ill get back to it all later again.

Just a little busy

As the Sun sets on another day I sit back and try to keep working on the pile of work that needs attention. I think it is getting a bit more manageable but we will see.

The lemon layette is ready to go and just finishing the the sky blue cardigan and hat set so they can be posted in what I guess this week will be a big posting week with plenty of parcels that need to get out.

More ornaments have been made to restock those that had been sold at the fete. I have even been fitting in sewing the Christmas Tree bottle tops on the phones when I am at work. All I need is for work to actually stop interferring with the craft and I think Ill be on a winner.
