Rainy derbyshire but spirits are high xxx

Its like Autumn here in Derbyshire at the moment. Grey, dull and nippy days BUT I’ve had a wonderful week. Bank holiday was dull in the weather but we still made it out for a walk at Rosliston Forestry Centre which Rowley loved. 2014-05-26 10.29.20We also went to an antiques fair at Breedon on the hill, I love this village so much and every week there is an antique fair. Theres also a garden centre, book shop, wool shop, handmade baskets, coffee shop and a card making shop. I found this beautiful sewing box which I’ve fallen in love with and will get well used.

Health wise…well mentally doing great but I did have a call from the GP and my lithium levels were way over the limit at 1.2. Not a clue why this has happened as nothing has changed. So now I’m taking 4 tablets a day instead of 6. So far so good apart from being a bit tired. But lucky enough not to suffer any side effects. They also told me I’m allergic to gluten 😦 so it looks like a huge changed in my eating habits. I’m still waiting to see the nutritionist for all the information about what to look for on food labels. Its going to take time to get it right I suppose.

Crafts this week, well the hair slides all sold so I made some more. I’ve made owl cases the first one was a practice and then I made some more in which I’ve sold. I’ve tried out some new embroidery designs and they worked well. A few cushions and crochet hook cases, rag coasters, pin cushions and  a love banner. All turned out well. So then I started on the dreaded crochet. I can’t crochet, I always think how relaxing it looks and in this weather I could just sit with my PJ’s on in front  of the fire crocheting. So I’m joining the workshops at the shop and I’m bloody determined….I’ll keep you updated and don’t expect too much 🙂 x

Its been a busy week too which surprised me with it being half term but with the weather being miserable I think crafts saved the day for mums.

We have the best customers. They are so creative and inspiring. I just love everyone’s makes. Everyone says how they love the shop and I’m really pleased that all my and my family’s hard work as paid off. Lets just see if we can improve even more 🙂 But my favourite moment is when a customer that comes in once or twice a week gave me a present. A thimble…..but not an ordinary thimble. This thimble is over 100 years old, silver and belong to her mother who has now sadly passed away.  I’m absolutely touched and honoured to have such a wonderful gift.
