At last it's my week off!!! It started yesterday after working the whole weekend, I had a lovely day yesterday doing nothing! Well I did clean the fridge but the rest of the day was taken up with TV & knitting..... perfect!!!

I've been really busy making things over the last week as I try to list daily on Folksy. 
This is what I've made so far...

I've sold a few cherry brooches so needed to make more, these will be great for the Retro Ruby Fair I'm attending in April.

Do you want to see how my journal is coming on? 

I'm trying to do at least one thing a week so it doesn't end up in a cupboard! This is something I've never done with a book before....

It took some doing, that spine was a tough one! If you count the leave this page blank that's another one to tick off!

The last thing I did.....

So now it looks like this....

It's starting to look a little dog eared now but I'm liking it :)
I'll let you know what I do next.

Today I'm suppose to be sailing to France, we leave late tonight from Plymouth & return tomorrow early evening. Just a quick break for something to do, the price was very good so we thought why not..... it'll be nice to have breakfast in France!
However when we booked it last week we forgot it was February & the weather isn't good....no wonder it was cheap!
Checking the weather yesterday it said gale force 6, now I'm rubbish on boats & rarely use them so what should I do??? 

I've also woken up with a start of a cold..... grrrr I was so looking forward to doing something! My head tells me to stay home, nothing worse then feeling sea sick with a bad cold & having to spend 6 hours in a french port..... :(

I'll be back later to let you know if I was brave & to show you more of my makes.


  1. Hope you have a lovely trip and bring back some goodies to show us !! ;-)x

  2. I'm keen to dig out my journal watching your adventures with yours!

  3. tee hee, that journal thing does look fun, although I still don't know if I could do it, I hate it when the children write on their magazines!!

    Hope you do make it to France and that the winds aren't too bad - I hate ferry crossings, so I do sympathise, but for a taste of la belle France and a decent croissant (not to mention the moule and frites), well, it sounds worth it to me. I went one February weekend with a group from work, and we had the best weekend, came home laden with stinky cheese and baguettes and all sorts - and I was 2 months pregnant at the time, on a dodge crossing, and feeling sick 100% of the time, but I still remember it as being a great weekend - one of the last big adventures before the children put an end all that spontaneous madness!

  4. Have a good time - I'm sure everything will be OK

  5. Love those Cherries...Fab! Hope you got to go on your trip to France...Its so worth it when you get there isn't it. I hate sea sickness too...nasty feeling x
