    Well, my 40 yr old New Home sewing machine didn't exactly die, but it got very, very sick. I think it might be diabetic - it's seems very tired and has neuropathy in it's tension! So I've purchased a new one - a Singer heavy duty machine, I've opened it and set it up, but other work things have gone a bit mad at the start of term, so I've not had a chance to use it.

    I've been getting paintings together for an exhibition in a couple of weeks and have set myself up a shop page on the artfinder website. https://www.artfinder.com/lesley-hale#/

    Just finished knitting a pair of socks for me, and a headband - also for me - out of the leftovers : )

    I was knitting blanket squares for an arts festival in my area but the picnic was last weekend so now I can get back to selfish knitting! At the moment I'm working on a cardigan and a pair of socks

    I've just bought the bits for Christmas cards. I just need to get some designs sorted out now. It is years since I made the cards but who knows. I might even get them all done

    Hi, yeah sure. They are crocheted octopuses that are made and thouroghly inspected and then passed onto premature babies in some hospitals. If you are on facebook search octopus for a preemie

    Have been busy making Christmas cards.
    There are roadworks on my way home and the alternative route takes me past Hobbycraft. I can see it is going to be an expensive few weeks!

    Pleasurable disaster....
    I know exactly what you mean. In some ways I'm glad the traffic is always chaos at retail park half mile away...can't walk that far, scooter only dry weather......trouble is Etsy is so darned convenient....
