Through my eyes...

Saturday, 25 June 2011
Well... what a week Ive had!! Stressful does'nt even come near it... but all is well now so thats as much as we need to say on that score! Lets share some jolly pictures to cheer our souls... Miss Polly (up above) helped me by modelling some more knitwear for the shop. She even borrowed my bestest apron. I love the colours in this shot. I must make more corsages, they are so portable and I always feel as if Im gardening with wool when Im making them... 
A little stray was brought into my workroom by Littlest... this was a cat rescue. Tiniest, softest, prettiest little thing, (which will grow into a nibbling, plant massacring beast, but being a human bean, the most destructive creature on the planet, I cant really talk can I...) which was carefully rehomed away from the cats... Mr F brought me a baby toad too... I know how much he loves me when he brings me toads... 
I made the bestest, lightest scones ever! I feel the need for more coming on as I type...

So whats been a happening in Fairysteps land?
  • I did an interview for Handmade Living magazine which may possibly go into the September issue. Blush... now would'nt that be exciting!
  • I cleaned my workroom ready for the next batch of orders and decided as I cleaned that 'Studio' sounded far too posh for lowly me and that 'workroom' felt far more cosy, inviting, industrious and proper...
  • I sorted patterns for bag cutting en masse which will take place after this batch...
  • I finished a pile of Pink Dragon shoes for stock ready to list next week...
  • I started making a beautiful tippet and another scarf...
  • We had a good look at the caravan and made our final plans on how we will finish him / her off. And... there has been a name change too. Having decided on the final colour scheme for the repaint he will be renamed as a she. Primrose... now theres a clue as to the colour! A big blog post will follow on the progress very soon.
  • Mr F and Granpar F have drained the water tank today and are cleaning it inside as the water is coming in so slowly now that rather a lot of debris is building up in there... and we drink this stuff!! Our water will be sparkling by this afternoon. A nice chap comes and tests it for potentially life threatening critters every 3 years and it always seems to pass. It is sweet and pure and a little bit of Mother natures smaller occupants can only make us stronger...
  • Mr Fs new bees are doing well and enjoying the break in the weather.
  • I do believe I need to spend this evening starting a new project. I saw a very pretty blanket in the new Molly Makes book (treated myself and the girls to a subscription...) and as I have rather a pile of aran weight yarn I feel another blanket coming on...
Im so naughty... theres no hope...

  1. Those scones look SOOO scrumptious, I might have to go and make some too now! And how exciting about the magazine article, though I'm not surprised, you're an inspiration my dear. Can't wait to read the post about 'Primrose', I'd almost forgotten about him/her.

  2. You have had a busy week, I'm not sure how you do it sometimes :D How do you get your scones to rise and be so light, I've never quite managed it. They still taste good, but are a little heavy! If I'm moving to Cornwall, I'd better learn to make them properly, haha!
