It was the most glorious frosty morning today where everything looked as though it had been dipped in icing sugar! Clean dog weather... but boy, was it cold! But so beautiful.

To combat my blue mood of yesterday I've indulged in a frenzy of activity for the craft fair tomorrow and have completed yet another sock creature... Syd Splatt. Not sure about his forked toes! Look a bit crab like... or worse still, a scorpion!

I've made a whole basket of lavender bags,

completed a machine embroidered pendant to go with some others I had in stock,

and finished off a book jacket that I'd been commissioned to make as a Christmas present. All this whilst listening to the Music Marathon on radio 2 for Children in Need. I phoned in with a pledge but they didn't read out my message... unless it was whilst I was walking the dog. Probably donated my entire profit from tomorrow but it's a good cause. And as a result I'm feeling much chirpier today!

News from the Boys in Brazil... arrived safely!


  1. So much loveliness there today!! Wasn't that a great frost?
    I totally love Syd Splatt and know someone else who would too so if he doesn't sell let me know 'cos I'll buy him!
