Karmic Prices & Royal loo!

I've had a wonderful 2 weeks off, and in that time i have decorated an old lampshade, spent time with my lovely grandson, had an visit from one of my daughters on leave from Falmouth Uni (she leaves today) i knitted a gnome, the Queen and shared and shouted about Crafty'z Corner.
 So lets start with my Mothers day...i was given the most wonderful gift from Demi, she had been learning guitar for a few months whilst at Uni and had come home to see us all, unknown to me she had practicing a song for me! she and my Husband went into our Vocal Booth  and  Demi sung & Playing guitar and this was the end result....Demi singing!. It meant so much to me, and she done a great job too!

As mentioned i made a lampshade into a lovely Lampshade, i'm useless at sewing so i thought this would give me some practice.
It also feeds my love of Button visuals, having lots of lovely Buttons around the place helps lift my moods  ;)

i have also spent time socializing on line, i have come across some amazing talent and really enjoy the support surrounding my facebook page.

 I also had some sales for  the knitted bits on my page, im useless with putting prices on things and as i enjoy making things, i decided to have an "offer me fair price" system...that way people offer what they feel is fair and i get to make some lovely bits :).... i also know without a shadow of doubt that if something is done with a Good Energy you will have good energy returned. for me its a Karmic thing too!  (a whole new post).

I also made a Mouse for a Twitter friend @wobblymouse and for some customers :)
These mice are so cute, they are approx 4 inches & i really love making fact i'm going to be making onces with there own unique style.

I also made a Gnome who  is approx 8 inches top to bottom , only 3 inches when sat, he is cute, i have quite a few orders for this little fella. They are available in different colours and sizes 14,16,18 cm when sat.

mmm now what else have i made?.... oh i made The Queen, not bad for a first attempt, i thought it would be a great idea to knit her a Thrown too but i couldn't find a pattern, however a lovely lady from alithealiencrochet offered to make one for i'm excited and jumping up and down as i wait for it to arrive in the post... anyhow being as nosey as i am i went  to look at her craft page and WOW! the woman is a crocheting star... have a look! 

Hear is Queenie......

Made By @crafty'z Corner
