Bit of a crafty week

Hello blogettes, I've not been on here for a whole week tutut Andie you slacker you. 
I've managed to fit in a bit of crafting this week. After the bags I sewed and showed on Mondays blog I did a bit of beading on Tuesday. I made three jewellery sets for my website and a watch for a friend.
On wednesday I went to meadowhall with my mum Christmas shopping and we did quite well getting things off our lists and then that evening I did a mamoth order on Amazon for a lot of the rest, We don't have that much left to get now.
On thursday I did a bit more sewing in the morning before spending the afternoon in my least favourite way ... At the ironing board !!! The sewing was a bag for Chrissy from some material she sent me along with a drawing and measurements for the style she wanted. Im going to add a ribbon loop and button closure before I send it off I just need to find a button.
I didn't do anything crafty on friday or saturday as friday I was too busy doing housework and saturday was a supermarket and tv day but yesterday I decided to knit myself a pair of slippers I've only made one so far but hopefully I'll get chance to start on the other one today.

  1. You busy little bee you - well done for fitting in so much and doing Christmas shopping as well. I've just spent half a day at Bluewater and that's enough for me. Getting really busy now, but pretty much done I think.

  2. Wow, Andie it seems i am not the only one trying to get organized with gifts. You have put together a lovely collection of work, I like the slippers and the watch. Really nice. best wishes Julie.C

  3. Good on you andie - getting organised. Me & Hubby went shopping on Sunday to Cardiff - a moderatly successful day, but very tired & sore feet after - even in my comfy shoes...!!
