who is this

Hi Al

Who is this, I keep getting random comments that mean nothing to me form ANONYMOUS,
I keep deleting and saying its spam, but everyday there is more, I cannot find the source of these comments but its driving me mad, any one else have this.

Well rant over, finally got everything in its place in my new kitchen I decided to chuck out stuff I do not use and reorganise, then I forgot where I put everything, got my head round it now.

I sold my music shop, it had been sitting around for some time after I completed it, and then I thought get a grip, you made it to sell, so get on and do it, my trouble is I fall in love with every thing I make, but it is sold, good job I have a lot of pictures.

I have been getting on with my son's wedding gift, have got her dress made, I ma taking a risk and showing you it, but they are so busy I do not think they will go on here, they only go when I tell them to have a look at some thing, but this is the first wedding dress that I have made, and feel quite proud of it, Amy's mum is coming round next week to have a look at it to see if I have got it right. I have been lurking about on their face book accounts down loading pictures of them on their round the world trip, I want to shrink these, I may use them as a collage in the back ground or a album, not sure yet. the next thing for me to create is the flowers, I do have a picture of them, but now I have to find the right colours, they are in varying degrees of pink. have a look at the dress.

the satin is ivory with  ivory netting over it, and ivory lace to the bottom. it has a sash in ivory with sparkles

I added tiny seed beads for buttons

Oh buggar, some how I just deleted every thing that I just wrote, how did I do that?
well better start again.
I have started my next project, I won a gypsy caravan from ebay the other week, it looked really nice in the photo, I knew it would need a bit of work, when I got it, it is really very crudely made, they had used nails to hold it together, I am talking big nails!!, so I decided the only way to do this is to take it to bits. The wood was rough so I covered it all in mount board, I made a new front with a door, it did not have a door, in some ways it would of been easier to make it myself, never mind I am sure I will make it look better than it did. today I want to start to decorate it, I will be putting it all together when I have finished painting as it will be easier that way. will keep you up to date with my progress and show you the stages and what I did. so here it is what it looked like when I got it.

Hi All

I am finally back, the kitchen is finished and I can get back into my work room,
this is what it looked like

as you can see no room for me.
here's the kitchen.
this is my dads set and it has been in a cupboard for years, I now have a place for it

some of my blue and white collection

at night I can have all the lights on

my lovely oak spice rack

my shelving unit, painted this myself

new floor, slate laminate boards, with my doggies

So now I can get back to working on my projects. I just put a load of minis on Ebay and sold most of them so will need to start making some more.
I have started a new shop, this is going to be one around horses and their gear, plus I have a fancy to make a Arabian vintage  costumes, I was looking round the web trying to decide what I would do next and came across these, and loved them, they are so vibrant, have been making sketchers and will see what I come up with.
The other project is one I cannot talk about or show you till after August, its something to do with my son's wedding and as they occasionally have a look at my blog, do not want them to know what I am doing.
It is such a relief to have every thing back to normal, I do not do mess, I am very tidy and like to have things in their place, so you can imagine how hard is was for me, still not moaning as I am so lucky to have a bespoke kitchen in oak for less than 500.00, you cannot beat that.
Well better get off now loads of washing to do and I want to get into my work room.
