Big News!

Time for my big news...


Our little family, my husband, William and i, will be moving to Dubai in the summer! My husband has got a job as head of department in a private school in Dubai and we are very excited! We are in the early stages of planning the move as we only found out about 2/3 weeks ago.

The contract is for 2 years so we will see how we get on. If we absolutely love it we may stay longer. So now we are thinking about storing/shipping furniture etc, selling our house and all the paraphernalia that goes along with such a big move. So if anyone has any tips or suggestions to make this easy please let me know!!

We are keeping an eye out for an apartment to rent in Dubai and excited about the opportunity.

One thing that is on my mind at the moment is my Sharky Knows hand made crochet items... i have some stock left from selling online and at craft stalls which i am really keen to sell on before we go. So please please visit my facebook page for more details of the items i have on offer and please recommend to your friends and family too!!

I will try to keep up with the blogging, especially as we may have some fun times in Dubai to write about!!



Its been over a year! Lots to catch up on!

This afternoon i thought i should really catch up on my blog... when i logged on i realized my last post was over a year ago!!! I cant believe it! So a quick summary of the last year...

My little boy is now 14 months old, doing really well. He is gorgeous, such a good boy and is lots of fun now he is walking and got a real sense of humor. We have such a fab time with him!
I have been busy making dresses. I have had a few commissions to make bridesmaid dresses and a wedding dress and that's going well.

















I have done a few crafty projects too. The latest one is a zigzag blanket for friends who are having a baby in June. But i couldn't resist letting William try it out first.

My Nan turned 100 years old at the beginning of February and so i made her this gorgeous blanket. She is living in a nursing home and has an amazing view of the sea! I made this blanket using colours i know she loves. I had a little help from Chalky's World!!



These are some cushions i made for one of my niece who turned 2 years old in December. She has a plain white room and i thought these brightly coloured cushions would jazz it up. They were fun to make and i love the different patterns.

Well that's a brief catch up.. i do have more news to come but will put that in another post! But for now, i have a yummy little boy who wants cuddles on the sofa!!
