About Me

My photo
I have been mad on crafting for as long as I can remember, making dolls clothes when I was little and knitting jumpers and tops and drawing as a young teenager. I love everything crafty which is why I dont finnish many things as I get side tracked by something else, this includes, crochet, knitting, felting, sewing, painting, drawing, cross stitch salt dough, nail art the list goes on. I see a colour I like or a shape and thats it I want to start on something new. I love it and the greatest feeling in the world is when someone else loves it too x

Folksy x

Hi Well, Im still sorting my craft goodies and keep finding things I'd forgotten about which is giving me loads of new ideas to make x
Found a great storage box in the 99p shop to put all my little bits in one place :0) Think I'll need to buy a couple more tho lol As usual I've started to make lots of things and not finnished anything but Im learing to just go with the flo, there is no point in trying to finnish something if my hearts not in it as it wont be its best. I've joined a local craft group and going to meet them this Friday evening for the first time. It will be so nice to have an evening of cake and craft :0) Im making Hearts at the moment and trying out a new pattern. looking good so far will post pictures later in the week. I thought i'd try to make a hanging of hearts in different pinks and add buttons and bows, to hang in my conservatory. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend Big bearhugs Ali xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Folksy x

Today I have taken down the Christmas decorations and had a good tidy up. Next on my list are my craft supplies, wool, needles patterns etc which have been put in bags and all muddled up so I need to get organised.
I've also had a visit from Kayleigh and Chloe, 2 bears I was commisioned to make as Christmas presents. I hadn't taken their photos so they kindly left their new mummies for a little while to come back and sit for me. I have opened a Folsky shop today! Only took me a year to work up the courage and Im very excited about it. Im going to be selling Wonderland Bears and other items such as jewellery and bags etc, all knitted and crocheted. I've named it Alisons Wonderland. Well I'd better go and get on with the organising.... Love and hugs Ali Wonderland Bears

Started a little blue bear today, I love the thread its got a nice sheen to it. Its very thin and on the first attempt I coul hardly see the stitches! Then I tried my reading glasses from the pound shop and I could see brilliantly. Just need some lighter evenings and im all set xx

A New Year !

So here we are, a brand new year just waiting for us to fill with fun and craft x I have decided not to worry too much about leaving things not quite finnished as this seems to be a common complaint of us crafters. So instead I shall make sure that they are loveingly kept together in a safe place so that when the mood takes me I can finaly finnish them :0) I hope you all had a great New Years Eve. You may be able to tell from the look of this blog that I've been attempting to style it again. Almost got there this time too. I will not give up, watch this space lol x Ok so Im off to half finnish something whilst watching Roman Holiday x Much love and Bearhugs Ali x
