The beginning!

Hello!
Welcome to my first blog!
Don't really know where to start as I have never blogged before!
The hubby has my little boy for the day today so I have peace and quiet to try and get used to telling the world what I am up to!
So, the little signmaker. This is something I set up a few years ago. Life as frantic as it always is I never really managed to find the time to get it off the ground and then we decided to start a family! So time is very precious now. I thought it would be a great chance to make a go of this venture while I was at home with my little boy.
I attended a local craft fair last Sunday. It was very chilly and very windy! One of my friends had a stall there to try out (quilting) http://www.ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/ and I stole a corner of the table! I also deserted her to take my husband, Kev, to be measured for a suit for a forthcoming wedding! Sorry Rose! Needless to say we did not have a good day! Not great for our confidence but both put it down as an experience!

I am always working on new items. Hopefully in the next week or so I will have made a few 'teacher' signs. This are proving very popular for school children to give to their favourite teachers at the end of the year as a thank you to be remembered. I am also working on 'welly pegs' - sadly, at the moment I think there will be alot of use for them! Also, trying to finish a gorgeous little 'Tooth Fairy' box for the little ones. Not quite sure what the going rate for a tooth is nowadays but it has space for coins and notes depending how generous the tooth fairy is feeling!
Well, more work to do ......thought Sunday was meant to be a day of rest!
