Oh dear I forgot I had a blog !

Recently due to circumstances out of my control I had a bit of time and was having a ball, blogging more often , joining in My Creative Space , visiting lots of great blogs and getting lots of crafting done .
Then it was all over poof just like that !
Again due to circumstances out of my control , (don't go away I won't bore you with the details)
I no longer have any free time .
Just about every spare moment I do have when not catching up on housework and other really dull stuff , I've been spent making hundreds, well maybe dozens , of Little Party Frocks
for a friend who sells them for me at the markets she does along with the pattern for them .
If you would like a pattern for these it is available in my shop or in my Ebay store or email me .
Speaking of patterns I have not one , not two but three patterns ready to be released and again my pattern testers have been fantastic !
After such a great response to my Fabric Carrot tutorial (thankyou so much ) I'd really like to do some more tutorials .
So my plan is (hopefully) to release a pattern a week and of course that will mean a giveaway !
Have a happy and safe Easter , I'll see you next week !

Beena said...

Love the carrots, Clare.
I can relate to not having any time. I spend so much time trying to catch up on everything around here, and still never get caught up. I've been pretty slack with my own blogging these days! It's what happens when a person has a life!
Good to see your post, though, and hope you have a happy Easter as well!

Hi Clare,
Cute little dresses! You may have mentioned beofre and I missed it, but are they for decoration or to put on a doll? My Sophie would love a row of these for her dolls.

Maggey and Jim said...

I know, sometimes we have to sacrifice what we would really like to do for what we need to do..We must keep the craft current or nothing to write about?? lol
Happy Easter..
