My secret revealed

Hi All

Yes I have a big secret, have kept it to myself since New Years Day, and last night I had a call and was told I could now tell it, the only thing I ask, those that are on my face book page do not say anything about it on there please, my son wants to let the family know before it goes public, guessed yet? drum roll,  I AM GOING TO BE A NANNIE , yes my first grandchild, due 2nd September, so much looking forward to this, been told they do not want it spoilt, sod off its my roll as a Nannie to spoil , I have already got it something, a little bunny rabbit with a book for bedtime stories. Time to get the needles out and start knitting for the baby.

Filling the shop, I decided that I have a lot of minis to go in  my shop and I had better start to make shelving units to put them on.

I wanted to have on wall just shelving, so I measured the width and height, and using the old faithful, balsa wood, I have got the back, sides and shelves made, they have been painted, today I hope to finish them. forgot to take photo of it, will do so today so you can see what I( am talking about.

I painted a wire shelving unit and completed some of the other mini items,

Getting back to normal

Hi All

Thank you all for your kind words while I have been under the weather.

Yes I am beginning to get back to normal, whatever normal is. My legs still have a lot of fluid but they are better than they were and I have managed to get my pain back under control. I have pain syndrome, got this following me falling out of the loft and damaged my leg and spine, basically what it means, is my body is constantly  in pain, as my brain no longer knows how to switch it off, I have to take  cocktail of drugs to enable me to function. Sometimes it can take over my life and I have to give in to my body and allow it to rest and recuperate, this down, so now I hope to get back to my minis. I have been doing a little when I can and I finally have something to show you.

While I was resting, I decided to have  go at miniature knitting, I had only knitted blankets before, I can do big knitting so I thought I could do mini. I was very pleased with my first attempts.

I continued to work on my beach shop and have completed a lot of the little minis that I want to put in it, I also papered and painted the inside of the shop.

Anyway enough of the natter see for yourself what I have  been up to. 

need to add little buttons and ribbon to the hat

bags and cushions for the shop

the little minis are charms that I painted
