Just in case you were wondering ...

I'm still alive. 
I've been busy busy for the last six months and a bit neglectful of my shop blog. That's my first Open University course finished now, which is a shame because I was having so much fun. So much fun, that I have registered for the advanced course and will be starting again with my studies in October. 
In the meantime I need to get cracking on some new products for this year's Perthshire Open Studios which takes place in September.
I'll try not to leave it so long before my next post.

It's that time again.
Time to get started with plans and patterns and lists of things to do this year.
I just wish sometimes that the weather wasn't so miserable in January because it's hard to get-a-going to it's so blooming miserable outside. I'm fed up with winter woollies and welly boots and could do with a bit of sunshine to get me going again.
On the plus side, I have a lovely new framed certificate as my reward for coming second in the Christmas window competition... yay.. go me...
My next competitive challenge is come up with something wonderful for a Valentine's window display. I'm thinking of perhaps not crocheting my display this time, but you never know. 
I'm currently waiting for marks for my latest OU assignment. I submitted it during the Christmas holiday, which now feels like ages ago and I'm feeling a wee bit anxious. Hopefully all will be well but it's a bit distracting and seem to have lost the ability to think of much else. The funny thing is that I really only signed up for the course for fun.... Who thought I was going to take it all so seriously ? I'm loving the fact that I'm learning new things and really challenging myself in a whole new direction. It's definitely good to try new things. It would all be a bit boring if we didn't.
