I think a couple of weeks have gone by without me joining in with the weekly global wonder that is What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday (see Julia's Stamping Ground for more details).

Some crafting has occurred, but mainly designing cards digitally and then just printing them off (which is not always as simple as it should be).

I have been getting annoyed with myself that I am not finding time to continue with my sewing adventures, so have sorted out some fabrics to make a quilt/pillow set for my eldest step-granddaughter's doll pram.

Here are the pretty cotton fabrics -

and I also found some random fleecy fabric, which can be used to make them more cosy.

No idea of where to go from here, except to go through my stash of magazines/Pinterest/YouTube/National Sewing Circle (something I joined last month when they had a ridiculously good subscription offer - lots of videos/articles) and find a pattern/instructions.

Will keep you updated.

I was hoping to be able to show off my Ikea Raskog trolley, which should have been delivered yesterday, but just done the tracking of parcel and for some reason it was returned to the depot last night and now they should be re-attempting today.  I am going to use it for my scrapbooking supplies - in the hope that having them all prettily displayed next to me will actually force me to use them!

I hope that you are all well.

Happy WOYWW to all those that I do not get round to visiting.

This Is Your Life

Just a quick post today.  I saw the following on Facebook and it really struck a chord with me.

I have had lots of relationship and general life Tarot readings to do recently.  So many people struggling to listen to their intuition.  Shut out all the chatter surrounding us and just listen.  You have all the answers within you, but Tarot can help to provide guidance and make those answers louder.

Go to my website, Tarot Farm, read my FAQ page and then click on the Store tab to purchase a reading.  Unfortunately there is a bit of a queue at the moment and I also have my mum coming to stay this week, but I will get your reading sent back ASAP.

I love Tarot!!

I am nearly out of time in order to get involved with the weekly tour around crafty workspaces, which happens on Wednesdays.  I had written in my planner, as usual, to get this written and published before breakfast.  However, calving started on our dairy farm this week and hubby was particularly busy last night, so my sleep was disturbed too.  I ended up dragging myself out of bed at 8.30 am (late for me) and then a busy day took over.  I have not managed to sit down in my craft room/office at all, and only now am I sitting on the sofa with my laptop and watching the Great British Bake Off for Sport Relief.

My only crafting this week has been sorting out my scrapbooking supplies and grouping together my Snap Book/cards etc, ready to finally create a memory book of the dogs that have featured in my life.  I also made a quick 'grid' card for my niece's 10th birthday.  These are a fantastic way of using up some fun stickers.

My Tarot business is taking most of my time at the moment and my mum is coming to stay next week, but I really hope to sit down for at least an hour at the weekend, print some photos out and actually fill some pockets.

I am really excited about this project - and will hopefully have something to share with you next Wednesday.  Does anyone else make Snap or Smash books?

Happy WOYWW to all that I do not manage to visit.

I nearly forgot to add the link to Julia's Stamping Ground, which is where we all gather to celebrate this mid-week bonanza.
