Come to good & Camper vans

 ********Knitted camper van competition********

well its been a while since i wrote a post and in that time i have had a fall out with knitting, then made up with knitting...I've traveled to Cornwall in a motor home, stayed on a farm for a long weekend. It was a lovely place called "come to good" and waking up next to a field of sheep and glorious sun was my idea of heaven :).

The motor home was really lovely too although we did struggle for space as the were four of us in it at time...i almost had a neurological melt down on a few occasions!

 however, it was a nice experience. we had fresh eggs for breakfast each morning & spent our time touring the land, come the evening my husband Jinian wilde, played his flutes and guitar as i was all rather lovely! Although i had to sleep like a Concertina, as the bed was made for dwarfs...... or double jointed folk, of which i am nether!

The previous weekend i spent in a convent in Suffolk, it was basic and quite and although i was with my colleagues, i felt a million miles away from the world....still, i gained some stillness from it and the food was was after this over indulgent trip that i decided that i was going to become a gainer of slimness so of i went to a well know club and committed myself to a eating plan moment! So one week in, i feel great, im focused and determined to lose this weight and ....drum roll please....I'm 3 1/2 lb lighter...bring on next week i say :) Its time i began to love my body again and this is the 1st step.

So back to crafting, i have seen some amazing pages on  facebook and here are a few that have stood out for me..... Bobs place  & Our Craft Shops  Both are great Networking sites.
Sun N Sparkles who makes wonderful bits, purses, bags etc. this is a wonderful page with some mega cute bits, its a must Ooak-Whimsical-Trolls-and-Fairies-Pixiediddles  and this is a funky page, true Handmade crafts Handmade by Bex and as always a Big shout out to The-Handmade-Promise for all there hard work.
