Knit, Stitch & Creative Craft Show

Yesterday we nipped off down to Shepton Mallet to the Knit, Stitch & Creative Craft Show. We got there just before 10am when it opened, and joined the queue.

First stop was the cafe for a cup of coffee and cake!

Then we started to have a look around. I did start to get slightly annoyed with some people that had forgotten to bring their manners with them. Pushing and shoving to pick up something that there are hundreds off. There is no need!

I picked up some pink beads and findings for a necklace, bracelet and earring set I am making myself for a wedding on Saturday. Bought from The Southampton Bead Shop and With Love Crafts

Then it was time for dinner. We had brought along our own picnic, and sat outside on the grass.

We went back in and carried looking around. I picked up some gorgeous fat quarters from a lovely lady from Phase Patch Craft in Chippenham, and some quarters from Sunflower Corner Quilting.

The button, two cotton reel and pink swirly leaf quarters are from Phase Patch Craft and the Royal Dolton black, pink and purple flower, and two purple flower quarters are from Sunflower Corner Quilting.
Also picked up this picture fabric strip from Phase Patch Craft

It's all about the Sparkle!

Another glorious day!

I was planning on having the morning off to start a new cross stitch, but that didn't happen. Instead we ended up emptying the summer house, hoovering, dusting and cleaning the windows and putting everything back in again!

By then it was dinner time... so i made us a lovely cheesy omelette! Mmmm....

Then checked the post! Hurray, finally my crystals arrived that I have been waiting for since Easter. So I made myself a bracelet for the summer. 

Then onto making some summery, window charms! I had so much fun making them.

I made them in 3 different colours, with 3 different glass drops.
Emerald crystal with 63mm AB crystal glass drop, Crystal with 38x14mm AB crystal glass drop, and Purple Velvet crystal with 63mm AB crystal glass drop. 

I have listed the Emerald window charm on Misi. The other two will be listed in the next few days.

Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather! 
For now,

It's 100!

It's my 100th post! 

What have I been blogging about to make 100! Only seems like 5 minutes ago I was excited about getting my blog back, after it had been hijacked. That was back in February 2009!

How glorious was today?  Sun was out, and it wasn't too hot. I'm not a sun worshiper in any shape or form. I do really prefer the winter months, mainly as it doesn't effect my eczema as much as the heat does. It has already starting flaring up. Backs of knees, stomach, hips, and groin area, but I wasn't going to let today pass without making some summery jewellery and accessories.

So I made this...

and this...

Both are available at Sprinkles Sparkles on Misi to buy!

Hope you are all enjoying your Easter Eggs as much as I STILL am!

  • 1 inch headpins
  • 2 inch headpins
  • Mixed buttons
  • Mobile Phone Charm Straps

Some items that I will be listing are not small, for example bead boards and beading mats. These will have different postage & packaging prices, due to their size.

Might go and list some more items now.. so keep checking all the time to see new stock!
