I love to get creative and above is a selection of things I have made recently.
If you are interested in the gloves and hats please contact me as I am happy to knit either fingerless gloves to a bespoke measurements of cuffs and fingers. my prices are reasonable as they are hand knitted and from the comments I have received from the people who have the pleasure of wearing what i make they are very happy with them.
The ornaments and teddy bear outfits which are also bespoke to my own design and ideas.
On Saturday, a fellow crafter took me to visit this great little place The Malthouse is Herstmonceux, they had a stunning array of craft items which were incredible well priced. The owner was a very pleasant lady and extremely helpful.
At the Malthouse they also have teaching of crafts from a wide range of teachers so it is a really good place to go for advice on any craft you may think you are interested in starting or need help with expanding your skills base.
The owner of the shop introduced me to a lady who was teaching painting with wax, something I had never seen before, it was a really lovely opportunity to meet other crafters as well. The work was lovely and looked quite easy to learn, as with everything practice makes perfect.
The details of the shop are as follows along with their website and facebook page.
The Malthouse, Hailsham Road, Herstmonceux, BN27 4LH
The owner of the shops is called Suzanne Jones a lovely american lady.

When you contact her please let her know where you saw her recommendation.
Suzanne was telling me about all the local groups of crafters and arts colleges in the area. As I am new to the area I am trying to make contact with people to help us develop a great network and in the process make some new friends along the way. My own plans is to help develop the network so that we can organise a large craft fare in the Local areas. We in Pevensey Bay are already looking at the prospect of this and hopefully encourage others to join us.
I have a couple of small dogs and travel with them all the time. We have a travelled up from Spain last April to the UK – wow nearly a year since we came back. Time does fly by so quickly.
I have been looking at various points of interest for dogs and the availability of holidays for dogs. I came across this magazine which I felt was very helpful. Being a bit of a wanderer for myself, which is why I lived in Spain for nearly 6 years now have come to settle on the South Coast of UK. Still looking to visit my friends in Norway sometime over the next summer.
