I make bags......

....so why was I sitting in the sun knitting a scarf (yes I know its April, but I can't produce all my Christmas stock in September) with my work and yarn in a re-usable bag from our corner shop? I really must start to enjoy using the items I make. I suppose I feel guilty because it reduces my stock.

On the subject of feeling guilty - my blog has been sadly neglected recently. Unfortunately, there has been a procession of non-craft related issues taking my attention. Its more than a week since I listed a new item on Folksy. And no - I will not be listing Christmas stock yet! With a sense of Folksy community spirit, I have not missed a Folksy Friday, but my blog was not supposed to be a once a week post about other people's work - important though that is.

I'm afraid I haven't got anything very interesting to say today except that I have now begun work on my gallery page. I have used the Haptree mini-treasury template to produce a display of my work, department by department. Everything looks so much better when not listed in a jumbled muddle and I look forward to the day that Folksy allows us to acheive the same sort of ordered presentation.

The first display is now available in my gallery for you to view ( see link bar). I would love to read your comments if you can spare a moment to look.

  1. I love the gallery page- looks very clear and professional. This is what I need to do for my blog- I have a gellery section down the side and it just looks too busy. I love the header bar across the top like that with the different categories x
