hello again

well what a few hetic days i've had and the bad weather didn't help!
busy in work making lots of airoplanes and lots of work at home trying to get my winter stock on the go as well and the boys are still of school for the holidays and between all this we had the big traction engine rally at Mountstewart (the local national trust property) and family day for work at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum and it rained and rained and rained ........
at the rally we had a tractor drive on the friday night and we all had a brilliant time with well near 100+ tractors on the drive and on the saturday it rained so hard and the bad winds blew our tent down in which we were to do the bread making so if anyone would like to see what soda bread looks like just go back a few posts as the day was so bad i didn't get any pictures but on the up side we did lift over £400 for charity .......
and family day is a great day out with everything be provided by the company i work for and as usual we ball even though it rained most of the day but a little rain never stopped us before

not a very good picture i know but i hope this gives you an idea of how the wheat bags have turned out quite easy to make once you gather all the materials together

if you want to get ahead get a hat!!

well as you all know i'm always up for a new craft and today was no exception . have been toying with hats for a while now and had a bit of stare time and some felt so i thought i'd give it a go!
this is my first attempt and i'm very pleased with it, have been thinking of taking orders and maybe a wedding theme would go better

and realy pleased i splashed out on those display heads as it makes the little hat look even better , now i'll have to look out for some nice felt/wool material and make a few more examples for the next craft fair and explore the wedding/bridesmaid/mother of the bride thing and see if it might be worth while doing a couple of bridlefairs?
