Because I've been photographing my jewellery its made me want to get my beads out for a play, so one day next week I hope to make a few new pieces. Also today I've ordered some new beads and bits and bobs so thats tempting me to play even more. I only went online to order some ring bases but ended up spending £30. I ordered some lovely navy glass pearls and some semi precious pendants which I'm really looking forward to using so I hope they come quickly.
Besides working on my website this week I've also been knitting, I'm really enjoying knitting baby things at the moment and on sunday I started another baby cardigan which I'm about halfway through and also during this week I've knittted 3 baby shoes. Yes I did say 3, one pair and an odd one still waiting for its partner because I didn't particularly enjoy making it, you had to use double wool and with really small needles so it was a bit of a bind, also you had to sew on the sole to the upper and sewing up knitting is not something I enjoy. I will get round to making the other one just not at the minute lol.

I also had a go at sewing a baby dress on tuesday too, my friend eil sent me a copy of a pattern she had so I decided to give it a go to see how easy it was to make. I only used cotton sateen fabric lining as it was just a practice dress not intended to be worn. It was quite good to make and doing a practice run meant I figured out a few things I would do different next time. It turned out ok apart from I did go slightly off circle on the neckline which I did realise but as it was just a practice I didn't bother altering it. All in all its been quite a crafty week for me.
Besides crafting I'm still going on my exercise bike most days, I do 30 minutes and try to do at least cycle a distance of 10.6km the distance from here to my mums house lol. The last few days I've been trying to go faster and go a bit further in the same time frame. Yesterday when I sat down on the sofa after my 30 minutes I could feel the back of the top of my legs vibrating, I hope this means it doing something good.
