We were rather cold when we got back (normal spring weather resumed today) so we had pancakes for lunch. These are the Jamie Oliver version and oh so yummy. While I was clearing up JJ decorated his plastic egg that he got in a kit. Hopefully won't take too long to dry!

A very dear friend is 40 today so I made her this small embroidery and her birthday card. I've also made a giant merigue and when I get there it will be filled with cream and fruit (I also made one for after our own tea too as it will be quite a struggle parting with this one ;o) ).

Well hello if your still here. I meant to start posting a bit more regularly but life is still hectic. Anyway, I managed to get the fabric (see last post) all sorted out, and even went through my existing stash. I took the pieces I wouldn't use to the charity shop so someone else could have some use out of them...very organised of me I know (not really as it took me a week to remove them from the kitchen floor ;o) ). I also attended a meeting of The Country Crafts Association where they wanted to review my work so they could see whether or not they would accept me into their group.
I also received more ribbon from one of my suppliers...I was going to wait for the rest to arrive before I added it to the website but I'm very impatient so it's on there now. Once the buttons have arrived (and I'm also going to stock pure wool felt!!) I will be holding a celebration give-away so watch this space!
Today I managed to make some cakes (lemon and poppy seeds)...first time in months. Now I'm going to take hubby some lunch as he's working at his lock-up then I'm hoping to do some sewing this afternoon.

Heck...this rollercoaster of a week is still hectic! I had a friend drop by on Friday with 3 bags of fabric - I was expecting carrier bags when she said bags, but look at the size of them! They are still sat on the kitchen floor waiting to be looked through.
Yesterday was the Crafts Uncovered Event in Barton upon Humber. It was a fabulous day (even though I left a lot of stock at home!) made even better as when I got home hubby made the tea :o).
Also waiting for me when I got home was a parcel containing 6 of the ribbons I ordered from the supplier. I didn't even know they'd been dispatched so that was a lovely suprise. I've been taking lots of photos this morning then I need to make more soap. Updating the website will have to wait until later :o)

The second craft evening was such fun :o). We didn't have as many people as intended to be there, but it was good. Lots of chatting and crafting ensued - it was so good to have people to craft with for a change too. My sister even told me that she would like to attend the next one, which is a miracle as she doesn't really do crafting. Success all round I think. We shall be playing with broken tiles next month :o).

I've been thinking a lot about what blogs inspire me, make me smile, make me laugh, make me think. You know the ones you read every time they post even if you haven't really got the time to read them. Some of these blogs are about everyday life, where they share their lives with you, warts and all. Some are crafty blogs, one is the main inspiration for the type of business I would love to have one day. One of them is just related to my other love - Harry Potter. So, I thought I would share these 10 wonderful blogs with you. Maybe you already read these blogs but hopefully some of you will find something new to inspire you too.
