Blimey what a busy week!

Hello, I'm going to start by saying sorry for being a bad blogger....... I've been up to my eyes this week, I keep checking the blogs but the missed posts list just gets longer & longer & I'm starting to feel really bad for not commenting.

Thanks so much for all your comments about my bad's started to ease now but I'm still on the pills. I'm going to ween myself off them this weekend...... I don't want to take really strong painkillers so ever.

So what have I been up to this week???

Well on Monday I received an email from the art centre to say I needed to send all the marketing info over by the end of that day......oooohhh no.... I was still feeling rough & it was the last thing I wanted to do but needs must...... I could end up losing money on this little venture if I'm not careful so I had to do it.

While I was at it I thought I'd email a few people....... the response I got was fantastic!
The group will be in Let's Knit and a starter pack is on it's way, Cloth Magazine are going to do a feature on us & we're in the event listings......we will also be selling their great magazine.

I've also been asked to write a feature for Make it and Mend it..... they're having a meeting about possibly making us a pilot project.....yippee!!!

It's all going really well........but the down side is I'm coming home from work then spending about 4 hours replying to emails etc. It will be worth it....or so I keep saying!

On Wednesday me & OH set this up............

I'm really pleased that 4 people have signed up already, it also has links to Facebook, Twitter and the new blog.......see I have been busy!

Today I received my first email from a lady who saw one of my posters.....that was quick they only went up yesterday!

I'm off on Sunday so I hope to be back with photo's off my new goodies from last weekend, in the mean time I'll try & be a better blogger :)


  1. My my you have been busy haven't you It certainly will be worth it in the end I'm sure of it.
    Well done

  2. Hi, I've recently started reading your blog, and I'm very impressed by your setting up your knitting group - I'd love to join but you're a bit far away from me!! I'll have to look out for something similar near-by. You really have been busy this week ... I've just registered myself to your new forum, and look forward to seeing it grow! Hope the back is OK as you wean yourself off the tablets ... I know from experience how horrid bad backs can be.

    Enjoy your Sunday off!

  3. congratulations on setting up your online group - I'm going to join even though I don't live near Exeter as I don't think there's anything similar near where I am and quite like the ida of chatting to other crafty people.

    Good luck with all your projects, you certainly are busy!

  7. Hi Joe...glad your back is on the mend...
    I'm trying to link to the new thing you set

  8. Glad to hear you're on the mend!!

  9. Don't you worry about leaving comments, lovely, you are obviously up to your eyes in it at the moment, I'm sure the new group must be taking up all your time, but it sounds like it is going to be a real success. How exciting. Make sure you don't over do it, especially if it interferes with your recovering from the back issues. Take care, looking forward to 9th already x

  10. Wow! you have been working really hard! I'll check out the forum properly when I'm up to date with my comments! (I have been a naughty blogger too!)
    Glad your back is feeling better xxx
