official break

I do believe I've lost my blogging mojo. Not sure where it's gone so consequently, I've made the decision to take a little break until about…say the end of Septemberish. I have a couple of projects happening right now that I'm not in a position to blog about – not just yet anyway so need some time to concentrate on those amongst other things. Hopefully I'll come back refreshed and ready to blog again. (Just realized that I haven't taken an official break since I started blogging in 2005!)

Just before I go, let me leave you with a few things that have been happening around here. The new garage is up so Mr TS has now officially started on the studio conversion. Hoorah!


A friend and I have started a Stitch and Bitch group. We had the first one last week and loved it. We sit, knit and, well, we don't bitch – we're too nice for that, but we chat and just hang out. Smashing!


I finished another project at dress-making class. It's an apron/smock/frock similar to the last one but with a deep inverted pleat at the centre and it fastens with little buttons. Do you know that this is the 4th garment I've made in class and I haven't worn any of them yet!



So you guys, have fun. I'll be back soon with more nonsense but in the meantime I'm be here beavering away at my desk on projects late into the night, lit by my Grandads lamp.


Until the next time…Grandadslamp

  15. Hellooo
    I need an update about you! I miss reading your blog. I bet you have loads of news to tell really.
    Can you let me know details of the pumpkin thingy you used to go to. I want to take the kids. Jasper is really in to Halloween – begging to visit the halloween aisle in Asda as if it is a tourist attraction. One of his friend’s is having a birthday soon and he persuaded me to buy his friend a skull light, a cauldron with a hand in it and a fake arm – oh well boys will be boys!!!! Did you know fake arms are only £3 – we couldnt make one for that!!!!
    Anyway, miss you lots. Every time I go away to my craft thing I miss you so much as I know you would LOVE IT!
    All of my love Emma xxxxx
