....hello, I know I've been a terrible, terrible, blogger of late. Life generally seems rather fast paced and very very full at the moment. Which is good, don't get me wrong but does mean I have very little time for blogging and the like. However I just wanted to pop in to let you know about a little giveaway. The lovely Carmen of whoopidooings (she made this fabulous bracelet with my ninja beads last year, remember?) got in touch to ask if I could make a loveheart ninja complete with a hole in his bottom! Well of course I obliged... Continue reading

I feel so much better now I've done it, I was terrified before hand though! And I totally regret not going when I was pregnant/1yr post pregnant, it cost me a fortune, when it could have been free and less work no doubt!

...with a red camera no less! I really must make some more photographer ninjas to add to my shop, one day soon I will find time I hope! In other news I just got back from the dentist, my mouth is completely numb on one side, which makes drinking coffee super tricky this morning, but I am done for 6 months, hurrah!! I hadn't been in about 15 years before the beginnning of the year, so I was pretty anxious about it all as it turns out it wasn't all that bad and my teeth weren't in nearly as bad...

I did it! I stitched together my first garment from a pattern and in Japanese at that. I am so proud of myself, I mean the shirt itself is no where near perfect, but it is wearable, just about! I decided that I should start with something reasonably simple looking... Continue reading

my newest short sleeved sweater is finished! It still needs blocking (which I'm really hoping will give it a bit more length as it's a teeny bit short) but otherwise it's all finished and I'm quite in love with it. I made a few silly mistakes with the fair isle... Continue reading
