October Makes

I had many plans for a crafty October whilst I was off Facebook for StopTober.
I survived being off Facebook and didn’t really miss it, but other events conspired against my creative plans.  I have still been in a lot of pain and very dizzy, which I thought was due to some degree to using computer, but then I haven’t cut down a lot either as I found other things to look at and did some online Christmas shopping.  Not to mention all the emails backwards and forwards with my Mum as my Dad is in hospital again.  Last weekend was spent hospital visiting which is very hard work
This last week has been school holidays so has made demands on my time and energy and I haven’t been getting proper rest.  The school holidays included a trip to York Maze on a very wet day, thankfully it wasn’t too cold.  We also attended Our Handmade Collective Christmas launch, which was very well attended, we didn’t stay long, thankfully the shop is only small, but there is so much to take in ad Emily always wants to buy everything in the shop.  it also makes me feel like I should try and do more things myself, but I never seem to have chance.
Anyway more about none craft stuff in another post when I have the energy to write it, this one has taken me 4 days so far!!
I have made a few bits for a local Christmas Fair, Blackburn Hall Rothwell Saturday 21st November, where they will be on the Rothwell Baptist Church stall.
