I cannot believe how long it is since I last blogged! We have just been so busy this last few months. When I realised how much had been done and not blogged I was not sure where to start. So I decided to start with just a whole load of photos to give a glimpse of what has been going on here at The Pin Factory!
I had a fun afternoon making the most wonderful fabric fairy wands with some friends daughters.
I had the sheer pleasure of dog sitting for my friend Carols Wire Fox Terrier Tilly who is just adorable and I really didn't want to hand her back over so I am trying to talk them into holidaying again soon.
I had a knit and natter evening for friends and their children at our house. These sweet peas were brought by a friends grand daughter from her garden and they smelt truly wonderful.
Lots of messy fun making heart shaped pinatas for another friends sister in laws wedding.
A new 24th scale french house is starting to take shape, courtesy of Ritas husband Roy doing the hard part of cutting the pieces out.
There has been lots of playing at Bonnies house where we keep the ducks and seeing their rabbit just running around the garden.
I knitted my first ever garment and amazingly enough finished it. A cardigan for a soon be arrive baby.
An amazing trip to Germany to stay with our friends in Nuremberg where I had my 40th birthday in a cave by candle light - ahh sigh.
I received a stunning bouquet of flowers from the school where I run the craft club - it really brought summer into our front room!
I have been really enjoying sitting and watching the ducks running around, they have so much character. I cannot believe how fast they become fully grown ducks.
Going walking with my Mum, Dad and Elliot. Elliot really enjoyed scouting on ahead to find good spots for my Dad to stop and sketch.
Oh and of course the wearing of my new most wonderful boots that my husband bought me for my birthday. I think they may just be the Holy Grail of boots.
Lastly a picture of the alpacas that were grazing in the field next to where we camped at the beginning of Summer.
I have so many knitted and crocheted and mini'ed projects that I have been working on that I will have to come back and blog again with some more photosgraphs soon.
