Knitting, painting, drawing, planting, cross stitching……..

Hello everyone šŸ™‚

This may be the shortest post in the history of my posts šŸ˜› I’ve been swamped in work and trying to fit in my millions of knitting projects (ok 3!) whilst also trying to draw and paint more, finish my lovely cross stitch and also sort out our backyard so we have a nice space for the summer!!

The knitting projects are going ok but slower than I had planned!! I’ve been trying to knit a bunny (photos to follow in the next post), I thought it would only take me a couple of days but I’ve still got its arms and ears to do……and don’t even start me on the face!! I have a baby blanket to complete but I still have a couple of months to do that so pphheeewwww!! Then my cousins boys are after clothes for their Teddy Bears! I’ve still got a cardigan to do……it took me ages to find one that would (hopefully) fit!!

The planting will be fun when we get going! So far we have bought Gladioli, lilies, red-hotĀ pokers, dahliasĀ and some other pretty flowers šŸ™‚ Oh and I have some potatoes to put in the potato grow bag my mum got me!! My faves are the red-hot pokers.

Aren’t theyĀ lovely? I can#t wait until they grow!!I will be taking lots of photos of their progress šŸ˜€

So there we go! Take care and have a lovely week!!


Time for a change?

Hello my dears!

I’m sorry I’ve been away so long! We have had a lot of people off on holiday in work so I’veĀ been up to my eye balls in overtime! Then me and my partner decided to start decorating our house.Ā  We bought it 6 months a go so IĀ think it’s aboutĀ time we did something! There will be photos to follow šŸ™‚ It hasn’t been as easy as we though for various reasons but we will get there in the end! I have to admit IĀ haven’t picked up my knitting needles in a while! I’m not sure what is up with me really! I will get back in to it this week though!!

Anyway this post is mainly to report on the fact that I’mĀ thinking about opening a shop on Big Cartel.Ā  I have no clue if this is a good idea but their starter packageĀ is free so it may be worth a try! You can only add 5 items and one picture of each item but considering the fact that IĀ don’t seem to get that many sales I don’t see this being a problem!! Have any of you ever used Big cartel or have any opinions on it? I feel likeĀ I have to give it a try! Although I never expected Snow Bunnys Knits to be a huge success and a global brand IĀ was hoping for better sales than IĀ do have! I feel like I’mĀ wasting my time but I REALLY want it to take off.Ā  I suppose most people in my position go through this sort of thing……I’ll be honest though its starting to get me down a bit!

Oh and on the cross stitch front, I went with a smaller image…..mainly because IĀ wanted it now and it was cheaper :-pĀ I have very little patience in this sort of situation!!

This is the one IĀ chose in the end! I CAN NOT wait for her to arrive from amazon!! I will deffoĀ be posting update posts about this bad boy!! I can see this being a long-term project!

Anyway I hope you are all looking forward to the coming week! See you again soon!!

It’s time for something new…..

Hello everyone!

So recently I’ve been getting a little bored with Knitting! I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s because every day after work I get in and knit knit knit! I want to branch out and try some new stuff! I’m trying to start drawing a bit more (drawing is not my strong point :-P) as I used to love doing that as a young girl! You can check out my attempts at my new Blog ‘Pouring my hART out’.

Something else I’m going to try out is Cross Stitch! I’ve actually tried it in the past but never ever finished one :-S I am determined this time though!! I have grand ideas though! I was looking on Amazon and found this…..

Oh if I could do this I would be sooooooo happy!! Maybe I should start with something a little smaller though?? Or should I be brave and just go for it?? šŸ˜›

I’m still going to be knitting, I have commissions for Teddy Bear socks and jackets that I have to complete! I also have a jumper for myself and a baby blanket šŸ™‚

Hope you have all had a lovely weekend!
