ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT.
EVENTUALLY.
So today I realised that I had been rather quiet on the blogging front this last couple of weeks.
Sometimes life just seems to collide with its self and a months worth of stuff happens all at once.
That was my shed for the last week or so.

Deadlines deadlines deadlines.
There is nowt so boring as deadlines.
All this mess and chaos it does tend to lead to a messy and chaotic mind.

And then Blondie started at pre school.

Look at him in his little uniform
Don't worry it was filthy by the end of the morning.

And then we went to see some theatre in the woods.

After which we went on a quick trip to winkle island

About which I will one day tell the whole tale.
One of the two times I have been rendered speechless was when Miss Moonie Moon told it to me.
Needless to say it involves the phrase "Winkle up".
Intrigued? you should be.

And then I've run a couple of workshops over at Bermondsey Fayre.
More of these later, but for now here is a taster.

making sock monkeys.

Making Halloween decorations with the children.

I have however to save my sanity been hatching a plan.
A cunning plan
A crafty plan.
A blooming, flaming marvellous plan
And now the plan is almost about to come to fruition.
About to be a reality.
OOOOH I can not wait to show it to you all.
Just a little longer and then all will be revealed.
In the mean time to prepare for one of my favourite celebrations of the year I have been busy busy busy making these.

And these.

I do so love to do a bit of machine embroidery.
They are in my little old shop now.
What are you all up to in your workrooms?
Love Nora xx

  1. You have me on the edge of my seat with your "blooming, flaming marvellous plan" so much so that I forgot all about what I was going to say earlier! Love the garlands!

  2. Hi Nora
    Now that's a cliff hanger, if ever there was !! I can't wait to find out what the plan is !
    Thanks for popping by - you're wise to refrain from any more tv today - it's exhausting! We're taking an 'hour off' to watch Lord Sugar and Co... some easy viewing is much needed !!!
