I have been away again from my blog this was due to being away visiting mum. After I got back things have been hectic. Finally I have started arranging my craft room. Sorting things out is a nightmare. I am down sizing and getting rid of a lot of things. There are things I did not know I had and some things that I don’t know why I bought.😀 I am getting there slowly. I hope to get back to blogging soon “My Famous Last Words”😀!

I have been absent for several reasons and one of them is because I cannot find a proper blogger uploader for ipad or the i phone for pictures. The one i have keeps playing up and if i try it from the website it becomes a pain to up load as i have to do it via google drive. I just don’t want to upload through other apps. I rather do it straight from my phone or ipad photos through the main site itself. Anyway what i have at present is the only one that is available that seems to work a bit sigh. I just don’t know why google decided to remove its own platform that was working so well on the PC as well as the ipads and phones.
After a long time I managed to write up the pattern for this doll and she is now available at present from Dollmakers journey.

This is Pickles. He is Santa’s absent minded helper. He has lost the all important list that Santa gave him, so he has got himself in a bit of a twist. Unlike his twin who is very meticulous and goes over lists with a fine tooth combe, Pickles is always losing things .
He has searched for it high and low
And in his favourite storing place behind his ears but he cannot find THE LIST.
I suspect he has it tucked behind in his PJs and forgotten about that storing place😄
I took part in a fabric swap where we swap fabrics and make a doll out of the fabrics that your partner sent. This is what I came up with.😄

I am trying to destress. Started several of these dolls just to keep my ming occupied. Mum fell last week. Luckily I had just come out of the shower so heard her call out. She hurt her head but thank goodness nothing serious. Have to get some eye procedure done hope she will be ok.
Too scared to let her alone at home now. But sometimes it is not possible to be there all the time. So I just started these to keep myself occupied 😄.
I hope I will be able to finish them and they won’t hang around too long.

My craft room is going to be revamped when I am away visiting mum. This is how it looks at the moment. Everything is in boxes in cupboards and I am finding it difficult to find things. Also a lot of space is being taken up by the cupboards so I am going to get just shelves put in to keep the boxes.
These are the boxes I am going to use. I hope to get a work space on top and the boxes will go below. Also going to put some insulation in the gap between the space of the wall and the room. This room is under a slanting roof and doesn’t have an inner wall instead it is boarded up and in the winter it is freezing even though there is heating in the room. so basically I cannot use it in the winter. I think it was used as a storage area before. Anyway I am hoping that the insulation will make it more habitable. Unfortunately I cannot do much about the ceiling because of the way it is built.
I hope all this will help me organise things a bit better.😀
Today I came across a new craft shop in our town. Went in to browse and came out with stuff 😂. Well they had many things very cheaply priced as they said it was not officially open. It was a soft opening (whatever that means) so they had all the items marked at way low prices. I could not resist a good bargain 😀

Ok these were the last of my butterflies and dragonflies before I left. I must explain I was visiting mum for the last few weeks, as some of you might have guessed.
This one looked so much like a face of a tiger. Very appropriate for the place where I was. After a few showers there were so many different kinds of critters coming out. Amazing what a little bit of rain does.
This moth I thought was rather cute
After the thunder showers I saw literally thousands and thousands of these dragon flies flying by. One decided to rest a bit so I was able to catch him on camera.
