So much for a blog post every week! I can't believe how long ago it's been since I last posted on here! And what have I been up to since the beginning of 2012? 

The answer is... 

..not a great deal. Although I did have the great fortune to become a home owner in September 2012! After 13 years of living in Portsmouth I packed up my vast quantity of books & craft supplies and sailed across the water to the Isle of Wight. 

I've done a bit of crafting (and a lot of reading, I managed to get through 95 books last year!). I made a few more tote bags, branched out and tried my hand at jewellery making (rings & earrings made using cabouchons) but mostly I made things for the new house. So here are a few pics of what I've created.

I recovered my old dining room chairs, Kirstie Allsopp style!!

I made two draft excluders from left over fabric and scraps.

I made a few Christmas decorations

 I must admit that I haven't made a single thing in the last 7 months but I have just been commissioned by a friend to make some bunting (and a few other decorations) for her wedding later this year. This has rather reinvigorated me and I now have lots of ideas and more importantly some much needed motivation to get back into crafting. I hope that it won't be too long till the next post.
