So today I have just finished one of my kindle covers and it is entitled “At the Seaside”. Such originality I hear you say. Well what do you expect on a Thursday afternoon. Thought you might like a photo without the tissue paper in the way. Couldnt stretch my foot out to stop the tissue paper blowing in the wind.
They are really easy to make and look quite effective when finished. I gave my friend this one for her birthday and she loves it. Well she said she did anyway – who knows.
I popped extra wadding in so that when she drops it on the floor the Kindle will not break as she is a bit clumsy like that.
Off to source a nice sewing machine this afternoon so we will see what I managed to buy.
Cheerio my little crafters

Well hopefully now that I find myself with a bit of spare time, I can start back to writing my crafting articles. Over the next few weeks I will be trying to make some unusual and different things for you all to laugh at. I am hoping that I don’t drop glue on any of my clothes or throw out my crafting items through frustration. I am sure that has never happened to any of you guys but believe me after spending hours making something and proudly showing it to my husband – “Whats that for” is not the feedback i wanted.
see you all soon

So thought the title today should reflect the olympic theme.
Well what have I done to make me feel proud? That is the big question. After viewing the olympic ticket site for a million hours, we have managed to acquire some olympic tickets. OMG I hear you say, I must be one of the very lucky ones to have tricked the site into letting me buy them. I have never known such a frustrating site in all my life. It entices you and says tickets available. It should say tickets available but not really – lets just waste your time for a bit. So I selected the tickets, put them in the basket then hit request only to be told “just checking” – please wait one minute – no tickets for your selected event. Well stop putting them on your website then. Some of those tickets have been on there for days and there are none to buy. Next evening it was “please wait 15 minutes” and then reduced its count as each minute passed by. I think the site has an operator who cannot tell the time as their 15 minutes equated to 36 on my watch.
So whilst waiting for the site to let me know I continued on with my quest of making one of my secret items with beads. You will recall that I had already sent the instructions out to a magazine and that I now just needed to make the item again so that it looked one hundred percent right. It did take a while but I am very happy with the result. Cant show you it at the moment but its bronze and aqua and looks really lovely. Managed to bend my needle trying to stitch all the beads together as well. This is all I can show you for the moment. Sorry
See you soon

Christmas comes but once a year, unless you are trying to take some photos for christmas ceramics.
Had a lovely day walking around Delamere Forest and in between the rain the sun came out.
This evening was spent watching rebecca adlington swim and win bronze. Oh yes and also I was stringing popcorn for my tree and taken orange slices out of the oven and putting raffia ribbon on them. First picture is of my lovely orange slices and its a pity that you can’t smell them as it is gorgeous.
Second picture is of both of them. Not bad for home made. Have to say its a bit strange doing christmas stuff in July but there you go. Managed to get all my photos done and sent off.
Still checking for any more olympic tickets to come on sale for swimming.
See you soon
