WELCOME: Just a bit of nonsense really from a paper crafter and quilter who loves to dabble in all sorts of crafts. It will give me a way of remembering my craft projects - and sharing them with others

24 July 2011


I cant believe how quickly the time flies by. Not found time to blog about my crafty weekend last weekend- not that I was doing any crafting. It is my Mum, Sister and Brother-in-Law who are doing all the creating.  First of all my Mum is working like a demon.  She has all her friends making knitted dolls for a local charity from her area called Realaid.  The dolls are made all in one piece and the arms and legs are sewn into place.  Mum reckons they have made nearly 200 dolls and some teddies so far.

Mum sells her lovely craft items in two craft shops so last weekend we went to the shops to take some new items and pick up takings.  Here is Mum's section of the shop in Filey called Robinsons.  At the moment she is making jewellery bags, sticky note books with fabric covers, stress busters, Bridal stress busters, luxury lavendar bags and bunting.

BIL Phil is making some interesting pieces with drift wood and shells.  Really like the mirrors and his candleholders. Him and my sister are in the first stages of setting up their own business 'That's Nice Crafts' - I really hope it works out for them.

To top off the weekend. Mum and I went to Summer Crafting at Doncaster race course. Didnt go too mad but still bought some nice things and got some inspiration.
