I love to craft. I've been crafting in one form or another all my life and never tire of learning new skills or updating old ones. I learn something new everyday and can never find enough free hours in my day to do all the things I'd like to. I'm new to Blogging but hope to get better at it as we go along............any hints or tips would be most welcome.

Monday 24th August 2015

I can not believe how long its been since I last wrote on my blog. Its been a particularly long and hard past year, I will be so pleased when I am able to sit and craft in my room with no worries or distraction going on in my head. 

Ive looked after my Father both in Hospital and at home and watched him gently pass in to spirit amongst all his children, the way he wished to, at home. Very hard to do mentally but so worth it for my  dad as that's all he asked of us.

But now I'm left unable to sleep more than a couple of hours a night if that, so I'm feeling worn out. But things are improving, I'm happy with where my dear old Daddy is as I believe he is Walking in Spirit with my Mum, his one and only love.

I have started to tidy up my craft room, and we all know that's a long and hard to do process but a very very much needed one.

I have too many types of crafting going on in one small room. So I need to see what I really do want to do and just move the rest on. Its been a long job so far but I know Ill get there soon.

My Mother in Law has said she will help me with my sewing machine, I can sticth on it and have made curtains pillowcases and even a quilt cover along with little dresses and bits and bobs for my children but I need to start using patterns and this is where Margaret comes into play, as shes been an amazing seamstress most of her adult life, right now I need to hurry with that room so i can get some lessons going , bless her shes a lovely lady to do this for me.

Still I have done a few swaps and made a few cards, which I've usually left until the last minute. But still that's keeping my hand in, mind you I don't think as a crafter we ever really stop, we are usually doing some form of craft along the way.

I will pop through and see if I have any makes I can add, as I really like using this blog as a sort of diary of my crafting....

Back soon, have a wonderful Love filled day xxx
