So here's a few of my latest projects, some of the photography is awful but hey ho ...
I don't know where the photos are going to end up. Random bloggage.

It's been a looooong while but I'm not going to apologise, I've always been more of a reader than a writer and blogging started to feel like an enormous pressure so I had to step away for a while. Just lately however, I've been feeling the need to share.
Just a few of the things I've been up to recently -
I've made a few BendyBow headbands, some of which will probably find their way into my Etsy shop
I have formulatd a new and much more flattering design for my sweater coats
I crocheted a bag out of video tape (the X Files in case you were wondering)
I saw the Flaming Lips perform at Jodrell Bank which has the biggest, most fantastic telescope ever. I now think everyone should see the Flaming Lips at least once in their life.
I crocheted a rainbow granny shrug (yes, I really do wear things like this!) which is an idea I shamelessly copied from Therealiolithie on Etsy - check her out, she is the QUEEN of crochet
I had a craft stall at a little local festival

They have to be pretty detailed as you can see and often feature what time I have to do the school run and other obvious stuff. Is this normal? I'd love to know how everyone else gets through the day.
Today I a treaty parcel from the lovely Char at t*rexes and tiaras (couldn't for the life of me do a link for some reason), a gorgeous little padded bag and the cutest panda brooch, both made by her own fair hands, and so well made I had to check! Thank you so much Char =)
Close up of the feathers, I have the same one in black. They were a present from a friend, originally from Dorothy Perkins I think.
Thank goodness for my youngest offspring, I couldn't manage a decent pic myself. Check out the family nose!
I hadn't dropped food down my top, it was a random bit of something that had caught on my chest-shelf!
I quite like the idea of wearing feathers on both sides like ears or something, I must have a bit of a thing for ears at the moment!

It was wrapped in a Cosmic Corner bag which is the best plastic bag ever! There was a scrummy strawberry card (thank you for not writing on the sweet koala envelope!), a brooch, a pottery necklace which I adore, some pineapple lumps (my new sweetie love),

Along the way I've discovered that making photo collages is really easy, I love Picnik to bits. Look!
But it's now done and bar a few more organizational and promotional bits and bobs I can get on with my life and maybe even some sewing!
I've also been terribly clever and put a link on my blog. Look - there it is on the right.
If by chance any of my readers would like something, give me a shout, I do mates rates, very good ones =)
I had some lovely complimentary comments on my last post, thank you all. The camera somehow got rid of the lines and wrinkles and funny skin but I don't mind that at all!

It doesn't exactly look right does it?
Ears to be precise.
Isn't it ridiculous that I look better in bear ears? Maybe I was a bear in a former life or something.
