Trying to visit blogs and leave comments...

Sorry that I've not left any comments on your blogs but for some unknown reason when it comes to posting comments just wont let me do it and keeps asking me to sign in - so this is just a short note explaining the situation.

Girlie Bunting....

Sorry not been blogging but have ended up with a flu like cold, mind you it's no wonder when you get 4 seasons in one day.

Just posting this bunting I've made for an order, a little girl named Tilly - just hope she likes it!

When a bit better will definitely be visiting all your blogs, now getting back into bed with a hot water bottle!!

Spectacle Case... the inevitable!

Thought I would make a spec case due to fact that I do wear them, made myself a case a couple of years ago so thought I'd make another but to sort of look like an eye test letter board!

Weather's been bad today but did manage to get out for lunch, then to a garden centre for more soil for the little greenhouse as tomatoes now need repotting - will show you some other time!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

A pair of little Tweetie hairclips..

I've just put these on Folksy -

I'm trying to stop buying fabric just for the sake of it, and buttons for that matter - convincing myself gotta use what you got!

First attempt at turning a bowl..

My first attempt at wood turning a bowl using spalted beech which unfortunately has a flaw - can repair it but am leaving it as a feature..

This is the inside of the bowl and once I've waxed and polished it you will see a different picture and the splated effect becomes very attractive within the beech...

This is the bottom of the bowl and shall also get rid of the little hole where the bowl was kept in place whilst turning...

Shall show you the bowl next week after my next lesson and you'll see such a difference!

My favourite coffee & muffin cafe..

Just gotta be the best in the North West... Bunting from old coffee bean bags!

Vintage grinding machinery and boy does it smell fab when they're grinding the beans - you feel that you're in Caffeine Heaven....

Loads and loads of sacks of coffee beans from all over the world....

Just check out the muffins, they are so huge and deliciously homemade that you can savour both and take your time! Incidently they serve a different mixture of coffee every week so it just never tastes the same - Roberts Cafe on Cedar Farm - a place to enjoy (inc. little animal farm which the kids love)

Cupcake, cupcake, oh little cupcake...

Just thought I'd make a couple of cupcake hair slides, did find them rather finicky but persistence won in the end!

Guess I'll put them on Folksy now!

Any comments are gracefully accepted - like innit!!

A Day of Tranquility & Peace...

Just look at those strange feet! So amusing to see on just a little duck... (For a better look at them click on the picture and enlarge)

There it goes with those feet actually following it's little one...

Peace and tranquility to say the least even though there were a lot of people there (oops sorry - Martin Mere Bird Sanctuary) it was just amazing how many different ducks there were....

and of course the Pink Flamingoes - not even they made a noise!

Well there are many more pictures but too many, and if you are ever up North, Lancashire way visit Martin Mere. There are also Beavers and Otters but alas they're nocturnal so didn't see any.
