Time seems to be flying by for us at the moment! As you will have seen from my last post, we put an offer in on a house which has been accepted. Well we heard from our buyers yesterday and they want to move in two weeks! Mental. So now we have a bit of a mad panic to get everything packed. I spent today packing and the next two weekends are going to be very busy.

So sorry i havent got any exciting pictures today, i just simply havent had time. My main reason for posting today however was because i had my stall on friday at school! It was the first time i have ever sold any of the crocheted items i have made and it went surprisingly well! I went thinking if i sell anything it will be a bonus! But actually made about £120! The stall was only open for about an hour over lunch time for the staff at our school. I was selling some of my scarves, wrist warmers, slippers and bits. I had some contributions from Linda over at Chalkys World and my mum. So thank you to them both for their help!

I am really chuffed with how well it went! The money i have made will go towards buying some new dining room chairs for our new house! and of course towards buying some more wool and buttons (which i already did yesterday!)

Thank you all for your comments over the last few months while we've been preparing for the stall. I'm hoping to do another one in april for the PTA at our school, but will need to come up with some other ideas that are less wintery for that. Suggestions are more than welcome!!

I will keep you updated on the big move and hope to post some more pictures of some of the things i sold soon. Will be going back to my ripple blanket in a couple of weeks as something to do while we're in temporary accomodation.

Thanks for popping by my blog, i promise to be more exciting soon!

Brilliant Bunting!

It has been a manic two weeks!! We started back at school last Monday, and also had a viewing on our house (we're trying to sell our bungalow to move into a bigger place). Next day we have an offer on our bungalow which we accept! So out comes the computer to try and find us a property to move to!

Wednesday we view a house in the next town along from ours, Thursday we put in an offer, Friday offer is accepted! So in the space of a week we have accepted an offer on our bungalow and had our offer accepted on a house! We don't don't hang about that's for sure! So all systems are go, solicitors on the move and our people want to be in by Christmas! So I'll keep you posted on all of that!!

Well the announcement has been made at school and we are having craft stalls at our inset day at the end of the month. Chalky has been helping with items (see last few posts). The latest thing she has given me is gorgeous fabric triangles to make into bunting! I spent yesterday afternoon working on them and i have now made them into 3 brilliant lots of bunting!

Perfect Pastels

Vintage Flowers

Girly pink
I have also received my order from eBay... paper bags to put in the MANY items i WILL be selling on the day! (i hope!)

Aren't they lovely? I'm really pleased with them and hope they will give it all a more professional look.

Well gotta run, making Thai noodles with chicken skewers for dinner and stomach is definitely starting to grumble. Hope your all enjoying this glorious winter weather!! :s
