This and That

I’m trying to build up a collection of granny square scarfs for the Felt shop for the kiwi winter since they seemed to be quite a popular item for the northern hemispheres colder days, this means I’ve let my etsy shop sit there having renewals. Which is okay I think for a week or two as etsy is undergoing some kind of change in the way it does the relevancy search, so I thought I could keep an eye on it from afar and see what happens. The Felt shop is ticking along; I’ve just had my 3rd sale there which is really fab!

I’m also wanting to do something creating with variegated yarn as the etsy hookers team are having a challenge and I’d love to take part, so I have the yarn and now I just have to do something with it… I’ve found that I’m crap at creating when I really want to, the whole pressure of it! So I’m trying to relax and forget about it and one day just pick the yarn up and voila – a masterpiece! Fingers crossed :-)


Talking of variegated yarn... Pip the pink fairy was featured here this week:

Monday is a holiday here this weekend – Fantastic!
We have some plans – perhaps pop to the races on Audrey for an arvo (she’s fixed – hurray!), finish off stripping an old desk and a bike ride of course. Long weekends are brill :-)


Happy weekend!
