Been very busy with work lately so haven’t been able to devote as much time to making and baking as I would like.

But I did manage to buy me a lovely new Sizzix Big Shot and a collection of dies last week.  There are so many that I want to buy but have to restrain myself!!

Going to use the machine not only for paper but also to cut some shapes in felt and other fabrics in the hope that I can create some pretty brooches, hair decorations and maybe some peggies. 

Quite excited about it all, got so much to learn about it and so much to explore in the world of the die cutting machine!!

Scrapbooking is a possibility but not sure I have the patience for that – yet!

Also going to be reading my mothers old Golden Hands collection to learn how to knit and crochet, if I ever get round to her house to pick up the needles and the yarn! The only thing I was ever able to knit was squares which we used to do at Guides to make blankets for the older people in winter.  Hoping to progress a wee bit and make some scarves and hats and maybe even small-people clothes! May be a while down the line though!

The winter weather has started to throw its wet and windy aggression at us now so there will be less time spent outdoors and more at home.  Hope I can use this time learning and then creating new craft ideas which I can hopefully perfect for selling in the spring time.
