slowly getting there.....

Good morning everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying the summer.

Seems ages since I was here - almost a whole moon ago.....

Im slowly getting back to normal after my run-in with The Dreaded Shingles, but it is taking a lot longer than I would like (me being quite an impatient person).

I have been truly blessed with all the good wishes and treats via swaps and giveaways from the lovely folks in blogland, and will be posting about these soon - thanks so much to all of you!

In the meantime I have been doing a few crafty things (just did not have the energy to then sit at the laptop and post about them, poor old thing that I am!!) these are some of my most recent makes:

I have sooooo loved making these - each heart represents a different phase of the moon. 

I made a lot of them, with many just displaying the crescent moon - these all went out as gifts:

The night sky fabric was a purchase from a patchwork shop called Heirs and Graces in Darley Dale, I bought it ages ago, just perfect for this project

Hope you all have a super Saturday, whatever it is you are doing!



  1. I'm not a patient patient either! I hope you are feeling a lot better now.
    Your hearts are really lovely

  2. Sorry to hear you've been struck down by shingles Helen - my boyfriend had it last year - horrible! Hope you are on the mend now though, the hearts look lovely x

  3. Thank you so much for my moon heart, it smells wonderful and is hanging with my other hearts, many from bloggers :)
