Catching up...

Hello...
I've been a very naughty girl and have not kept to my plan of two blogs a month. Where does the time go - a late Easter break quickly followed by Spring Bank Holiday plus a rush of orders have kept me away from here for what seems like an age...
So, just to keep you in the loop here's some pictures of what's been going on at CG&Cs.

I've been covering buttons....


 ... & making cotton string coasters,


 ...& more coasters...

I've unpicked my knitting & I'm now crocheting a cushion cover
#stick to what you know










& I've hit the dizzy heights of 1500+ fans on my CG&Cs Facebook page.


I've been on holiday....


















 I bought lots of (= too much) haberdashery...




I had a lovely 'crafty' shout out from a friend...
(Thank you Judi... xx)




& a lovely gift from another.
(Thank you Becki... xx)








This was made for me at work - a snazzy business card holder.


All in all a busy month in all sorts of ways....
I've got more orders to do during the coming weeks so I'm a happy bunny. At the moment I'm enjoying my half term break from work & getting on with some of them...

That's my April/May in a nutshell..!!  


Free Tutorial...
This months tutorial comes from HERE.... it won't link but please try yourselves using the www address at the bottom of this pic....
It's very cute though and I love the chart which comes with it.



Well, that's about it from me. I promise to try harder & blog a little more regularly.
Take care everyone...

Glad your business has taken off so well now - you certainly deserve it. You say you only do plain knitting, have you tried moss stitch which comes out really lovely. First row k1 p1, second do opposite p1, k1, third row back to k1, p1 again. I used to make jackets and cardigans for my two girls and loved doing it in moss stitch. Looks nice, and keeps it shape even after washing. That was a long time ago now. I even did cabling on a couple of jumpers - there, bet you didn't know that.
