Day five in the big wooden shed

Five and a half days really as on Tuesday it took me over two hours to sort out magazines and put them into issue order, but that is all I did, so I can't really brag and say I did a days work.

I also had to flick through each one as I wanted to keep the issues that I have projects published in - still not sure I have them all, but I have a good pile  :)

If you want to see some of my projects which have been in magazines, I have a Facebook album HERE which you can peep into  :)

And these are all the ones I have sorted to sell off  :)  Back issues anyone?  I have 'Bead', 'Beads & Beyond' and a few 'Making Jewellery'.

Also, tucked in amongst the magazines I found this earring book by Bead & Button.  28 pairs of earrings to make - but it's in Spanish!   However, I am sure someone can work them out from the photos so I am going to pop it in the Birthday Blog Box.

So, today, Mother Vera came round to help again.  Another good few hours of hanging stuff on the walls and getting rid of boxes.

You may be wondering where all these boxes have come from, but we had a biggish shop and then my daughter, Shona, ran her own market stall for a while with the stock on a sale or return deal - when it came back to me it just got piled into boxes and forgotten about.

Now that's what I call progress!  Hoovered too.

I've got one corner to do now, unfortunately it contains my desk which is overflowing with stuff, so it might take a while.   Not sure when I am going to get back in now as my son, Iain, is moving house this weekend so tomorrow and Friday I am on 'packing & moving the small stuff' duty.   Then Sunday I am off to Eden Workshop in Plumpton to do a Crochet Course.

No rest for the wicked, as they say  :)


  1. It's looking great, Sooz. Well done you (and your mum). I know that it'd not take me five days to get as far as you have in cleaning and organising...more like 5 weeks! From where I'm sitting, that looks like a shop full of wonderful sweets and treats, all sparkling, shiny and colourful. Oh, how I'd love to live right near you, to be able to go in there and just be dazzled and then treat myself to as many crafty goodies as I could.

    Have a great time at the Eden Workshop. You are one very busy woman - but, as they say here, 'happy out.' - June in Ireland

  2. Thanks June, one day I plan that I will have a day sitting and chilling, but it never seems to happen ;)


I would love to hear from you, questions, comments and salutations all welcome.
