U Rock!

It's been a hive of activity here at Little Blue Shed.  My brain has been in overdrive since plunging into the crafty world of selling.  Well ok, it's just the school fair......but....still!

I had a New Year aim of selling my crafts and I'm determined to fullfill at east one of my resolutions.  Well the loosing weight one went out the window ages ago.  Maintaining my current weight is tricky enough.

Ahem!  Back to my news, I've set up a Facebook business page and I'm starting small.  Just local like.  A craft fair or two but its a start.  

So this week I have been working on some Fathers Day cards.  They are not finished yet but it has meant that I needed to get the cross stitch out.  It shows you how long I have done this as I found a project that I took to hospital with me when I had to go in for observation when I was pregnant with Rob.....18 years ago!  And it's still unfinished!

Hmmm, cross stitch and I have a love hate relationship.  I love the finished result but I'm seriously rubbish at it.  I've lost count of the amount of times I have had to unpick the work.

Anyhow, here is the result of my frustration, now I need to attach it to a card.  I'll be back soon to show you the finished result.


  1. that little cross stitch is cute. Good luck with your fayre x

  2. Very best of luck with it all!

    I did a cross stitch blanket before TTO was born. It still has a blank space on its central panel, which I like to think is a nice design feature :)

  3. Good for you, sending love & luck your way xxx

  4. Ooh how exciting, good luck....I have a love hate relationship with cross stitch too....I love the result but can only do it in small patches of time as it also frustrates me if I do it too long :)
