Preparation is The Key


Why do we take on so much?  Correction, why do I take on so much?  You're probably all out there in Blogland with your presents handmade and wrapped, with Christmas cards poised for posting and Christmas puddings aromatically maturing in larder cupboards!

I am not.

Nor ever likely to be.

There is no more productive time like 'The Last Minute'.

Anyway, just thought I better drop in and play catch up; at least, prove that I haven't been spending all my time on Pinterest (ahem).

That strange red thing I was making a while ago here was eventually finished, along with a couple of others and they now reside on my bookshelves.

See, it wasn't rude!  Unlike this thing I saw [click here], which please don't look at if you are of a nervous disposition.  But do you think the Runner would like me to knit him a pair?

The two main things I am in a panic about are a cake stall on Saturday (you know what I will be doing from dawn til dusk and later tomorrow don't you?) and a craft stall the following Friday.

Lots of making projects going on at the moment, most of them half-finished!

Wish me luck!


  1. i have yet to get sucked in by Pinterest. i am clinging on to the sides for fear of falling into the black hole....

  2. I wish I was brave enough to do a craft stall, best of luck........found your link in "just hang on a minute's" comment box, love the little owls.

  3. Thankyou for your kind comments on my blog, much appreciated!
    I ADORE your owls, they are just the sweetest! My daughter has just asked if I can make her some! Hope you don't mind if i copy? I have been sewing like crazy for a local craft stall here, there is just not enough hours in a day is there.
    I also literally choked on my supper looking at that wool covered appendage, thankyou so much for the link, I so needed that!


Thank you for leaving a comment. See you again soon I hope!
