Spellbinders at CHA

Monday I got to browse the show and I have to say that the stands are amazing, just look at these displays from Spellbinders. I may need to get Stacey and her team to my house to organise a make over.

This is something that I will definitely be trying out.


Aren't they beautiful?


The one thing that I will say is that I could have spent all day just admiring their stand.

I totally fell in love with “A Guilded Life”

twinkles, sparkles, glitters, gold, diamonds, pearls, lace, what more could a girl need?


Close up alert.


One display after another and all a feast for the eyes.

I’ve so much more to show you but thought this was a fabulous place to start.

Toastie Crochet Slippers

I said I would show you as soon as I got them finished and here they are, I made them over two nights.

My Mam spends most of her time on her bed as this is where she is most comfortable, on Christmas Day she mentioned that she could do with some bed slippers to keep her toes toastie and I figured that I should do something about it.


I hope she'll like them.

Lamb Chops

So here we are nearing the end of 2014. I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas, we have had a family filled one and that is something to cherish.

I learned myself a new craft this last year which is crochet, I absolutely love it, I sit watching TV with Chris and crochet, in the winter months making a crochet blanket keeps your knees warm too.

I have just finished this little darling made with Alpaca wool and last night I started a pair of crochet slippers for my Mam, she had said that she wanted some for while she was sat on the bed to keep her toes cozy, so I'll let you see them as soon as I get them finished.

Cute huh?

And a close up of him sitting on my lap


So a big thank you for all of your support this year. I have had many changes the biggest being my career.

Thank you so much for sticking with me and the wonderful comments you have left, I appreciate it so so much.
