Progress Report

Yup, I'm started on my mammoth task. The layout and some of the non-shop pages are taking shape, and I have been photographing 'stuff' for when I get the shop bit built.

I have already had to curb my ideas and be a little more realistic with some things. It ain't rocket science, I know, and I also worry that folks are going to think I have made a lot of fuss about nothing. BUT it takes ages to insert a million hyperlinks and alt tags and all this other (to me) highly techie paraphernalia, so I will at least impress one person (my even less techie husband)!

Never mind, I decided to join in the SOSF this time round to cheer myeslf up - I just hope Tara has been getting the e-mails I have been inundating her with. Ah well, I'll learn tomorrow, I reckon...

Chocolate Overkill

Trying to be good. Cupboards still full of chocolate in various forms. Difficult for the willpowerless...It is out of sight but I know it is there.

I had hoped to be off to a racing start with the website design but fates have decreed otherwise and I am miserably coughing and spluttering and presently have the attention span of a hen. I have enjoyed reading others' blogs of Christmas exploits and am truly grateful to the generous blogfriends out there who have sent wishes and treats. Itching to join the Society of Secret Fairies to participate in the latest swap but must restrain myself for a little longer and focus on work in hand.
I bought myself a book of copyright free vintage labels before Christmas which will keep me amused for ages - like the delicious elephant above.
Gathering names for the next Wool Gathering at the end of the month - this time there are crochet lessons and an afternoon spent making embellishments of all kinds - tassels, felt balls, swiss darning (I think that's what it is called), embroidery, fringes, and anything else that we fancy.
