A Spring In My Step

I know, I have been a bit quiet, sorry! After a month of debating whether or not to continue my crocheting, I have decided to keep going! Though my Etsy shop has not yet taken off, I am working on it getting noticed more, then hopefully get some sales.

I have a new pattern to try out for baby shoes, which I am quite excited about. After doing some research, I think these will be a winner, though got a way to go yet. I have to make them first!

As Spring is nearly upon us, I need to get hooking some suitable wares. Trouble is, its also going to get really busy with work, our gardening rota is already burting at the seams. Need to get more organised and use my time more efficiently, neither of those things come naturally to me!

Keep looking at my shop Here , am adding more each week, just finished this small, chunky blanket, can be used as a cot/pram blanket or as a lap blanket….

Its November already!! Eek, got a lot of crocheting to do for my stall at Castle Drogo’s Christmas Market on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November – 3 weeks away!! Details for the event here

If you haven’t been before, Castle Drogo is near the village of Drewsteignton, between Whiddon Down and Moretonhampstead, about 15 mins from A30.

There will be lots of stalls selling craft, food and drink, locally made. Well worth a visit 🙂 Theres a really good large cafe and lots of lovely walks, we often go there to walk our dog. Don’t forget the castle too!! Come along and support local makers.

If you do come, let me know you read it here and I’ll give you a little thank you gift.

Its the season to be giving afterall!

Sold!

Remember that green shawl I made? Well, it is now on its way to the othe other side of the world! Admittedly, an old friend has bought it for his wife, but a sale is a sale and I’m so pleased 🙂 It really does boost confidence in my work so I think I shall make another, maybe one a bit less complicated and time consuming! Better get some more items made for my Etsy shop

I have just set up a facebook page for my gardening business, heres a link to Dartmoor Gardeners give it a like, I’ll keep putting up some lovely plant pics. Got any gardening queries? Will try to help 🙂

Etsy Shopping

Finally gotten around to adding some of my work to my etsy shop. Hurrah!

Only a few pieces but have got some other work on the go, after a bit of a break from crochet (which turned out to be quite a long holiday). Here’s a link to Naturally Looped

Haven’t had much free time recently, the gardening work is filling up most of my time, a good thing, obviously! Gotta pay that mortgage! We have got ourselves a new name and just had some business cards printed (designed the hilly Dartmoor pic myself). Pleased with the result….

…and may as well use this blog to advertise!! Though I would say we are busy for quite a while, got a large planting job coming up which is going to take up any spare days.

Well, Im still in my jimjams so better get dressed and out into the garden, have a fab Sunday x
