Merry Christmas to all hope everyone is well and had a lovely Christmas. Sorry its been a while since I have blogged.I have been very busy crafting,knitting,sewing baking and felting.In the summer I held the biggest coffee morning for the Macmillan nurses in memory of my mum.I was baking all week taking cakes into work and I raised £50 from sales at work- then on the Saturday I had a cake sale at home and friends and neighbours came to support.It was a lovely day and it went really well I had a small raffle and raised £150.00 a grand total of £200.00 which i was so happy with and sent it off to the MacMillan nurses who do a marvellous job.Also I had been preparing for a Christmas craft fair in Birmingham on 3rd December.It was a lovely day and I had a stall with my friends Lynne and Corinne.We sold a fair bit and it was nice to be in the Christmas spirit.
Also I turned 50 this year.I had three weeks of celebrating,,,,,,,,,,, I went out for drinks and a dance with friends and family.My sister really spoilt me and organized lots of nice things for me, She's a star,,,,,,,,,,, then me and my husband went to Berlin for the weekend.When we came back my lovely boys had laid the table and bought a cake ,balloons and food ,a big thank you to them . .We had a fab time and would love to go back in the summer,,,,, then I went to see 'We will Rock You' in London. My friend Kim got us some free tickets and I really had a fab day and enjoyed it thouroughly ;it finished off my birthday celebrations nicely.
Over the last two months I have been selling my crafts at a local new shop in Earlsdon called Mooch - 46 Earlsdon High Street Coventry CV5 6EJ. It is a fab shop full of gorgeous textiles and handmade crafts.The owner Claire is very helpful and friendly and always makes you feel welcome,its well worth a visit if you are looking for that something different.I have also been selling my brooches to the lovely ladies at work .A big thank you to everyone who has supported me and encouraged me with my crafts. I am now thinking about Valentines Day so have to get my thinking hat on and also will hopefully sey up my Folksy account with the helpof my son ,so watch this space. I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year happy Crafting love Nicky xxxx
