Glass and Spreadsheets

Have had a lazy day inside today due to some invisible person deciding to tap dance on my head giving me a headache, lack of sleep and an epic backache. I sound a right moaner ! I definitely needed the rest though and hope it's done me good. It's a bit frustrating staying in as I am going in hospital soon and being in will drive me mad! I'll have itchy feet and want to be out. So I wanted to enjoy my freedom while I could.

I treated myself to some glass today, I can't wait for it to arrive so I can get started on making some glass pendants. I have a few ideas I want to try out. Hurry up postman! Why is it bills and brown envelope letters take about two seconds to arrive but the fun things seem to take forever? I really need to work on my patience!

I've been trying to learn how to use Windows 8. All I want to do is create a Spreadsheet... can I find the Spreadsheet program? Nope! Now, I'm not the most technologically minded person in the world, but Windows 8 is so hard to use. I don't like it at all. I love my laptop tho, and not just because it's purple.

Here are some items from the crafty folk listing club, hopefully I will have my shop open soon- it's been way to long! All photos are links :)

Having a Wander

I've had a decent week, the sun has been shining which always makes things seem more cheerful. Yesterday I took the bus to a little town near to where I live with the sole purpose of buying some fabric from my favorite shop. This place is packed full with wool, material, sewing equipment, beads, buttons (tonnes and tonnes of buttons!) and everything you can think of. There isn't a surface that doesn't have something on it and, if I was a millionaire, I would buy everything in that shop. Sadly it's shutting soon as part of a plan to regenerate the area. The shop is in a small precinct which has so much character, but is due to be knocked down and, I bet, get replaced with something completely soulless. Hopefully it will relocate and continue to tempt we with wooly things!

I went to the GP today as part of my diabetes care. Everything is fine apart from my blood pressure which is too low and my kidneys that are kicking up a fuss. However, they were happy to leave my care to my Consultant at my C.F hospital. I had my feet checked and was very glad I had cut my toenails as I was starting to sound like a tap dancer when I walked bare foot across the kitchen floor. Too much information? Hehe Probably!

I continue to love being part of The Crafty Folk Etsy Team!  Here is a selection of items that are part of the February listing thread. All photos are links to the shops.

Have a great weekend!
