Bank Holiday Treasury

Happy Bank Holiday Monday! I have managed to get an Etsy treasury this morning and, inspired by the lovely green baby booties from my previous post, have filled it with all things olive. You can find it here. Happy browsing! The items are all in my 'Favourites on Etsy' panel down on the right hand side of this blog too so can still be clicked straight through to when the treasury expires in a few days. Let's hope the gorgeous green finds make the front page of Etsy!

We are off to Dave's parents' for lunch in a bit so just a quick post today but back with more shopping finds, wedding updates, photos and also details of my up-coming interview for soon!

A Little Hello

Just a quick post to say that I'm still here! Scalpelling and sewing away. I freelanced on a magazine in Newcastle last week, at really short notice, so now have lots of Storeyshop orders to catch up on. More regular blogging will continue when I get back up to date and also when I get Photoshop back. Dave is working away from home for a few days and has taken the treasured laptop with him. I get to use the lovely, fast and big-screened PC but Photoshop and the rest of CS3 has decided to stop working on it. Very annoying. I don't know if it's something to do with Windows Vista but it's beyond my computer fixing capabilities as is photo resizing and editing without Photoshop. For now I will stick to sewing in front of the telly!

I will leave you with some super cute baby shoes which I found on Etsy the other day. I am in baby mode as a couple of my friends are expecting arrivals very soon...

How cute are they?! The shoes are available from: pleasantlyplumpknits and Baby Grin. I have searched and searched but can't find the shop where I found the baby slippers. Try prettylittle for something similar. piddies also have fab little shoes for tiny people.

(If anyone knows where I found the bunny slippers images above please let me know and I will add a link)

New Storeyshop Monkeys

I have finally got some new Storeyshop monkeys in progress and all in nice, new designs. I have been making lots to order lately and haven't had a chance to get some of my new ever-increasing sock collection turned into softies. Lots of people have been asking for certain colours recently and I have been promising more are on their way. Inventively named, Pink and Yellow Stripey Monkey is the first of the new batch...

Today has been another catching-up day again after another weekend camping in southern Scotland. It did rain but our luxury supertent was at least already up for us when we arrived so we could head straight to the pub for dinner. When the rain stopped on Saturday, we went for a walk on the Dumfries and Galloway coast. It was really nice apart from a few scary close encounters with cows. I just kept thinking 'Don't run. Don't run. And if you do run, run away from the cliffs!'

I'm home alone tonight as Dave is down south. Filming with the BBC don't you know?! His vehicles are being used for a stunt which will be on BBC1 soon. Watch this space for details!
