Broken or Blocked

I know it has been an incredible length of time since I last visited. But today has been the first time that Blogger allowed me back on site.

I'm not quite sure what happened, as I couldn't get into my other blog also :(. So either I got blocked or banned (which is differcult to conceive as I can read other blogs) or there has been something major wrong with my pooter, but it works OK any other time.

So whilst I'm here, and folks don't think I have forgotten them, I would like to say thank you for the eggcup donations that were made and I have sold 8 for Charity, they each sold for £5.00.

Thank you Thank you... for your kind donations.

I keep promising to post pictures, but I'm holding off that at the mo, incase something goes wrong again.

I have sent an e-mail to Blogger but I havent received a reply!

I have been a busy crafter and I do craft every day... Yep I have pictures of that too!

Until hopefully next time, I hope you are all enjoying your crafts and I hope to get back on some time this week again.

If I can't I will try and get word to someone.

I'm back...YAY

Yep you read it right I am back.

My wrist and shoulder are a lot better, and yes I have taken it steady.

As a student I even had problems writting my school work up, and using the computer was just a nightmare.

But hopefully now I will be able to fulfil some of my commitments on here and get my 20 minutes up and running again, get my eggcups done properly and just enjoy blogging again in general.

I havent read everyones blog yet but hopefully I'll get on a bit more this week and post some comments.

The only problem I have at the moment is the amount of ideas floating about in my head that I am itching to have a go at, I could do with an extra day in my week to fit everything in, but I just know that if that happened I still wouldn't have time!

I've been slowly working on a crochet bag for mothers day for my OH's mum. I'm also working on four Bunny BU's for my mum for easter presents. I've also got to make 2 Mothers day cards by the weekend, plus write up about 6 assessment pieces for my course...tick tock tick tock, lol...see I said I needed that extra day slotting in there somewhere.

I've also been asked if I would like to write about crocheting... SCAREY thought, but my other half doesnt think its a bad idea. (I don't think he has seen my english just lately). But I do think it is a pretty cool idea, if I can fit it in somewhere.

The kitchen is still a disaster, but a livable one, I'm not attemping anything until I know I'm not going to have problems again with my shoulder and wrist, just that sometimes it gets me down when I go in there and think 'what a mess!'

I don't know if its because of the spring thing, but I feel pretty good about everything at the moment, except for one family health issue, but that will hopefully be resolved soon, and all the whittle and worry about it will be over.

My daughter has picked up the knitting needles, and though I can teach my ladies at crochet class and knit and natter, and I can control 6/7 year olds, in a sensible way, we just clash. I'm glad she hasnt asked me to teach her to drive or'st there would be major headline in the local newspaper about MURDER!, lol. However I do get a 'please, please' at home when a stitch has wandered off somewhere, or someone has forgotten to fully take off a stitch. She's doing it slowly but if I'm honest she is a very neat knitter and her tension is very good for a beginner... please don't tell her, she would be unbearable to live with :)

Well thats it for now, I'll try and get on a bit more this week and go from there.

happy hooking, blogging and creating folks

Catch -Up

I thought I best let everyone know what is happening...

The RSI has turned out to be something else!

I have a trapped nerve in my elbow and underneath my shoulder blade:(

It means as you can gather I have done nothing creative now for a long time.

I am on some very strong anti-flammitories(?) and pain killers which are zonking me out a bit.

I've been told it may take some time to sort itself out, hopefully sooner than later because I so want to get on with things, especially things that have been promised to other bloggers.

For now take care of yourself

Crafts for tomorrow

I made these a while back, sorry pictures are a bit iffy again!

Here are my Ribbon Rings - very easy to make and only take about 1/2 hour each

Blurry burgundy one but I think you get the idea

A selection of necklaces, beaded beads and bracelets

Beaded ring
I'm also doing a demo in crochet and knitting if anyone needs some encouragement

Thank you, thank you and thank you

I have a nice crop of eggcups that have come in and I will hopefully (fingers crossed) be making them into pin cushions early next week.

Of course photo's will be published

Thank you so much everyone for your kind donations



Well not really ... just off my blog.

If things didn't go from bad to worse!

You know about the kitchen - it didn't happen, even under the stairs didn't happen :(

My WIP's are sat looking at me forlornley (?).

Yep the dreaded rsi came back and to top it off, I have been suffering with a frozen shoulder!

It hasn't been my week at all.

Can you tell, I'll wallowing a bit in self pity - only because its frustrating to sit and do nothing.

All my homework has been hit because I can't hold my pen properly and using the mouse has been painful.

Bodies are amazing things but sometimes they just let you down.

I'm a little excited but nervous about tomorrow as I'm doing a craft taster at the shop, and I have been limited in what I can prepare... but I'm sure some of the girls will help me.

I do have some photo's somewhere to show off some of the things for tomorrow. I'll download them in a bit and get them posted.

So much for plans,

I'm a couple of days behind with doing the kitchen, so today I've sorted wool products and heck I have a lot, maybe later I may do all my other craft stuff but it is really a big job.

The main hold up is the colours I want for the kitchen, not enough tins in the shop..grrrrrrr..

And my car is playing up so I don't want to travel incase something goes wrong, so instead of a big project me and OH have decided to tackle under the stairs with the paint that I have then reorganise it so I can store my craft stuff properly.
