In the midst of crafting chaos!

I've got my first craft stall next Friday, it's a lovely little one held at a lady's house and it sounds like it going to be super Christmassy  with an open fire, lots of Christmas lights and mulled wine!

I am, as usual, in a crazy last minutre crafting frenzy as the dealine approaches...here are some pics of the piles of semi made craft stuff lying around the house!!
There are plenty of nests, eggs, butterfly and dragonfly bodies mid production. I really need to get a move on! Unfortunately both kids were off ill today so the crafting has slowed up somewhat!
I still have about 50 pairs of ears to thread onto elastic. They have taken me a lot longer than I'd planned for...but we live and learn.

Finally, I've just (in a very sketchy fashion) painted a hatstand red. I'll be using it to display my tails...well thats the theory, I'm not too sure how it will all look yet!
Well gotta run now and resume mama duties...and try to sneak a little crafting in too!

Take Care
Love Dotty

and for no other reason than it made me laugh...here is a picture of my ma's daft cat Stumpy asleep! He must have over heated next to the Aga and attempted to move...but then just gave up!

 p.s aaagggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh James is destroying my craft room as I write this!! messy messy mess mess!!

  8. Hi, good luck for friday although I know you don't need it all your stuff looks grand. We have all just had this sick bug too just coming out the other end.The cat photo made me laugh. You will be konked out soon like him if you don't slow down. I'm quite jealous really, what a lovely chilled out life he has at the moment. Stark contrast to our crazy house holds. Maybe we should sew giant adult size tarten cat beds to crash in too.......maybe we could wear some of your cat ears, maybe I have already lost it and should take my own advice...... hope to see you soon x
