A bit poorly!

Well hello again everyone!

Happy Easter to you all!  I am linking up with Handmade Monday over at http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/  This is my first post for a couple of weeks so I hope you enjoy it, and why not pop over and have a look at the many other bloggers who are linking up to Handmade Monday!


Taffy's been feeling a bit sorry for me recently! 
Why you may ask?  Well you may or may not have missed me recently but unfortunately last weekend I was struck down with a tummy bug and it took me till at least Thursday before I began to feel better.

But I am glad to say I am back to my normal self  now (my husband said the volume has gone up again!  I have no idea what he means!).  So really this post is just a quickie to let you know I haven't forgotten you all and to apologise for not visiting many blogs recently.  I really hadn't the energy to turn the computer on!

The week before I was ill I went up to a small weaving company in Dunkeswell, Devon to collect some more yarn, mainly to use in the Extreme Crochet Workshops coming up soon.  They very kindly provided me with a car load ....

I was going to take Chester with me to show them what I was making with their yarn, but as the very sensible man said "Just bring a picture with you, leave more room in the car for yarn!".  Good job I did judging by the load I brought back!


What do you think to all these gorgeous colours?  It was like Christmas come early!  I was like a kid in a sweet shop! 


Just got to decide what to make with it now!

I am busy writing a post for Christmas Pie Crafts http://christmaspiecrafts.blogspot.co.uk/ as I am her guest blogger on Friday 13th (unlucky for some!) so please pop over and visit her blog, we would both love to see you there.  Without giving too much away, Taffy and Chester will both be playing staring roles!

Bye for now
So pleased to be back and it's good to be feeling well again.

  1. Glad that you are feeling better and looking forward to seeing what you make with all that yarn! I think that your husband was right when he said to leave Chester at home - with all the yarn to bring back poor Chester may have had to sit on the roof on the way back! Mich x

  6. Chester would have been seriously miffed having to share with all that other yarn and worried that he was going to be usurped. What are you going to do with it all I would not know where to start as so much choice, we expect pic's on your blog in the weeks or maybe months to come.

  10. Thank you for all the wonderful comments, I feel even better than I did before now! All this yarn is very exciting, if the Extreme Crochet Workshops take off a lot of it will be used for those, although I have just ordered a ball winder so I can wind it into neat balls as I am planning on making up kits to sell so that people can have a go at home if they can't get to one of the workshops.

  13. Gosh, thats a lot of yarn. How clever of the man saying don't bring the bear you'll have more room for yarn! Bet he was taken aback on the size of Chester. Glad you're feeling better now and can get back into the swing of things.
