Morning all, in an effort to get a bit more organised with my blogging I am going to attempt a regular feature. Handmade Monday.
This is a feature started by Wendy at 1st Unique Gifts where fellow crafty types post a weekly blog about anything they fancy on a 'Monday'. Here is Wendys post for today.
This week I have decided to tell you about my ever so busy week.
Last Monday saw the 4th birthday of Little Mack and the arrival of the in-laws from Australia. We spent the day assembling a giant 12ft trampoline and a new gas BBQ and then enjoyed them into the early evening.
Tuesday saw Little Mack being whisked off to the zoo by his Grandparents so my Studio Support Technician (Mum) and I spent the entire day clearing out my studio. I wish I had taken some before photos as it was no mean feat. 7 years of crafting crammed into one little space meant a huge sort out of old materials and then a complete re-organisation.
I didn't in fact finish the re-organisation until midday on Wednesday, but I am pleased to say that by the power of my trusty Facebook fan page I have managed to sell almost all of my unwanted materials and raised nearly £150 towards my new overlocker. (There are still a few bits left if your interested, pop over and take a look).
I managed to get a bit of sewing done on Wednesday afternoon and finished a taggy order off as well as 4 lovely new sleepy pillows. These are destined for Folksy shortly.
Thursday saw a day off and a spot of shopping with Mother in Law and Friday saw preparation for the Havering Handmade fair. (I forgot to take any pics).
Saturday was the event itself which went very well. During which I managed to sew up some hair accessories for custom orders and then I shot off home for Little Macks birthday party.
Yesterday was spent resting as I was well and truly pooped!
So today is Monday, this morning the housework awaits me but this afternoon I feel a spot of sewing coming on. Check back next week to see what I achieved
