The following blog post was originally going to be 3 posts... but i just don't seem to find the time & space these days to carefully put blog posts together, so a job lot in one go will have to do for now.
I will however, try and do a separate post on our trip to Sheffield last weekend, as we had a great time and i got fairly snap happy with the camera. 

In the mean time here's a few snapshots of life lately... (mostly taken on my new 50mm lens! :)

 My crafty 'corners' are slowly taking over the house. I made the garland for the girls from the felted wool I picked up from the antiques fair ... i might make some for my online shop.

Speaking of my shop... I've added these kids wrist warmers to it and will hopefully be adding some adult versions and cowls too in the next few days, here's a little peak...

That black wool is deliciously soft & lovely... i'd kinda like to keep it.

In other news...
despite living in a bustling city there are some great forests and woodland areas not far from where we live. Here are my little pixie fairies playing in the hollow tree.

 I have a project I am working on for Jemimah's birthday in May which I hope to share with you once it's finished. And just in the last couple of weeks various photography projects and work opportunities have come my way which is brill...  i also have the craft fair in June to get ready for, as well as a 2 week holiday in the sun and a camping trip squeezed in! 
So it's going to be a busy couple of months for us, but plenty to look forward to. :)
