Emilylovesbagpuss is moving, in more ways than one!

As I prepare to put my house on the market, I am making some changes in the blog world too!

After some great advice from the lovely Penny at , I am going over to Wordpress for a nice shiny new fresh start. If you would like to follow me along on this new journey - please pop over and see me at where you will be most welcome :)

See you all on the other side!

And so normality resumes......

Blimey, It's been a long while. The craziness of the "Big Holidays" has culminated in my baby becoming a year one and no longer needing me hoo hoo!

So, as I obviously have nothing else to do - I have become volunteer extraordinaire!

Crafty Club for year Ones at the school resumes next week and it is so lovely to pass on the ability to use a needle and thread. It is no longer taught on the curriculum at Little J's school - so I feel that it falls to us Mums to pass on a very useful skill.  Surprisingly, it seems to be the boys who enjoy it most.

I'm also going in for 2 stints at hearing the kiddywinks read - amazingly the teachers only get 30 mins to hear children read a week; a  fact that astounded me - so if you ever think of volunteering - your school needs you; even if only for half an hour!

My final voluntary giving is at the local charity shop. Not only do I get to be nosey into other peoples lives, I get to help a very good cause as well. The only downfall is that I must be very restrained on the purse strings. I am a hoarder by nature and all those goodies just waiting to be bought may just prove to be too much of a temptation.

Over the summer, I have been working on the marketing side of my "business".  Hubby and I , with the assistance of Littlemisscrossstitch and her tall and very lovely daughter, got together over the summer and put together a photo shoot for Knitty Knots. I shall slip a few pictures in this post, so you can see them. My plan is to frame up a couple and pop them by my stock in the shops that I sell at, just to make them stand out from all the other lovely makes by all the talent here in Norwich.

Oh my...

It's been a while hasn't it. I must really pull my finger out!

What has kept meaway? Well, I've started up this new phase of my business you see! It's called Knitty Knots and it has become eversomuch, a little bit of a MONSTER!

You can find my "page" here and here are some rather spiffing photos!

The lovley Caroline at Gran plumbley lent me her stitchy fingers and gave me hand with he vintage bags that come with my jewellery. Thank goodness she did, as I have a fayre to go to tomorrow!

I will be back soon with a "proper" post. I promise!

All over and done with

Well, its all over now..............I was so worried about attending this fair that I couldn't stop shaking so please excuse the looks like i have been on the lash!

Clare ( aka Littlemisscrossstitch) and I had a great time meeting lots a great crafty folks. It was a little quite, I think mainly due the lovely weather outside and the lure of of the bands and vegeburgers in the garden. That said, the afternoon brought an influx of people.

I didn't sell many flowers this time, but my new design necklaces( which ill post about soon) and bangles went down really well. I will have to get my thinking cap on and see what other uses I can come up with for the pretties!

We are really hoping to attend the Autumn fair on the 6th of October, which promises to be even more fabulous!

Some new bits

I am not the sort of person who likes to stay the same for too long, and as such, I am always on the look out for ways to develop and progress. So that said, here is a new slant on some old stuff. Just in time for clutter city!

Sorry for the radio silence guys, I have been busy planning and scheming and such!

This week, I am taking part in something called CraftFEST. It is rather like the progeny of a craft fayre and Folksy. It is a multi national, seen by many kinda thing and being a self promotion kind of gig - I have spent most of my laptop time twittering and facebooking to tell everyone about it!

So..while you're here, why not pop along and have a nosey at all our lovely stalls.. :)

I will be back in a few days with a sneak peek of what is to come at Clutter City...I'm soooo excited!
