Mega Mevagissy

I am feeling sad, looking at the washing pile and cleaning. Yep, you have guessed it, I have just come home from a fantastic relaxing holiday. I also got to meet someone whose crafting I have admired for quite a while.

Mevagissy is a small fishing town near St Austell and we love coming here as a family.



The campsite we stop in is not in the main town, but is in the countryside by the Lost Gardens Of Heligan.

We love walking and the weather was just beautiful so we decided to spend our first morning looking around the Lost Gardens. It does not matter how many times we visit, there is always something that is new, it always brings out the big kid in me. My poor suffering family.

We visited National Trust properties, Padstow and St Michaels Mount, but there was one shop that I dragged everyone to see.

I love Claire’s work and her small shop is really lovely. I brought French soap and chocolate and admired her knitted goods. I am now saving up to go again.


New beginnings

This week has started well – I have a cold and sore throat. I have really been feeling sorry for myself. However every cloud has a silver lining I have had my first pre order of my new cards for my Etsy shop.

This is my Springtime card made with an image of a sugarcraft Peony that I made a year ago.

As you might already know I love making my quirky knitted creatures and here are two more cards I will be stocking.

I am really enjoying being creative and making things. I must have passed this skill or illness on to my lovely daughter. I found one of her computer pictures the other day when clearing out a few old boxes.
