More Photo's!

Have had a fairly busy day today, managed to do a bit of lobster potting, had a quick look round hobbycraft, it was manic in there, wish I'd had more time and money, so many things in there!  Bought a couple more balls of wool for my ebay xmas knitting projects, some thread to use as "hangers" for the decorations, some pipecleaners, I wanted just normal standard coloured pipecleaners but I couldn't find any of them, only want brown ones for robins feet, but all there seems to be is furry ones.  Forgot to look for christmas buttons as well, tut!  Will have to look on ebay I think.  Also looking for a knitting pattern for a camel for the nativity scene items, but couldn't find one, again will be an ebay job!

Had a go at doing some bits on lobster, still not done the tablecloths, oh dear naughty me, but put some pictures up and filled the cake counters, also got my other chair, picture and table for the living room.  Have got the hanging baskets up, but not sure how long they'll stay up for, keep listening out for the "klunk" as they fall down lol.

Been knitting a donkey today for the nativity scene items, have a horrible feeling it's going to look a bit too big though, will wait till it's finished if it's too big for the set, will have to try selling it separately.  

Saturdays are always a big wash day as it's all the uniforms and pe kits, oh then it's the dreaded ironing, ugggggggggghhhhhh, I hate ironing!  

Meant to be losing weight as well, so why oh why when I went to the post office/newsagent did I buy a huge bar of whole nut choccie, and have proceeded to eat half of it already, this is not the idea!  Ah well tomorrow's another day!

Anyway now for the pics, sorry there's quite a few of them!

Tea Cosy and Shelves

Managed to do a little bit more today, and postie brought a few more things, yippee!  Love it when you get bits through the post!

Finished a christmas pud tea cosy, and decorated the shelf unit in the shop with some bits and pieces and blue tacked some of the china as i'm fed up of trying to put it back without knocking everything else over lol.   Try and tidy up and cause more destruction, story of my life!

Got some pictures etc., to put up as well, and still got to make the tablecloths and cushions, hope to get them done tomorrow, too many things to do, must try and stick to 1 thing at a time and not have half a dozen on the go and achieving none of them!

Postie Brought Some Goodies

Is it Wednesday already?!   Postie brought a few parcels today which is always exciting, got my outside furniture, some gorgeous little shelves with tiny teapots on them, which look a lot better in real life than they do in the pics.   Managed to mend the broken shop counter so I've put that one in the shop.  I think I should have a "spot the difference" competition on the photo's, see if you can see the new things lol.  There's not that many new things and I still haven't done the prettying up or the staining and putting up of the fence, so many things and I've not done any of them!   My excuse this week is that Matthew had some sort of sicky bug yesterday so has not been at school yesterday or today and I was out helping my daughter move on Monday.  That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

I'm out shopping at the huge M&S and Tesco's at Camberley tomorrow, so nothing will be done tomorrow either, and of course, I'm sure I'll come home to another "while you were out" card from the postie, grrrr I hate those cards!

Also managed to finish off the little knitted toy set today, not sure what to knit next, hoping to sell them all on ebay this month (along with more surplus dollshouse stuff lol), need them to sell well so I can buy more stuff for The Lobster Pot!  Can't spare more money with Christmas racing up!  

Now for some pics!

These are the little toys, I may put ribbon on them so they can be used as tree decorations as they are about the right size, they are actually quite cute, I don't usually like the things I make, but I quite like these.

So that's been my week so far, hope you've had a good week to.
