The Rainbow Dalek Invasion took Crafty Critters by storm!

Yesterday I was at the Crafty Critters Craft Fair in Glasgow and had a great day out with fabby feedback and great chat!

Made lots of new friends and caught out with some old ones too! Did some serious shopping at Lesely B she has beautiful jeweley all hand made and hallmarked, ideal if you have a birthday soon!!! She has a facebook page too!!!

This is what I want next from her!

My Dalek invasion flew off the shelves which was great especially the bright coloured ones, the cutest moment was when a toddler came up shouting exterminate at them and his lovely mum bought him my plushie Tardis, which he seemed to love!!!!!!

Also got details of some new events coming up for crafters in the Southside of Glasgow, more details later in the week!

So last night I relaxed by knitting fabby lavender sachets in Debbi Bliss Prima yarn,  a mixture of bamboo and Merino wool in luscious purple, hope to have a small supply ready for this week's Lanarkshire Craft Group event in Rutherglen Shopping Mall and the SACDC Fair at Crossford on Sunday

This week I have some more Daleks to make, stock to deliver, carousel horse tea cosies to make and I fancy updating my Dr Who card collection!!!! Not much time for housework then!!!

However I have some reading to do, got this on Friday and think will be having some fun with it!

The Rainbow Dalek Invasion Force is ready!

It has been a while since I last posted, I have been really busy knitting and crocheting orders also running my crochet class in the East End.

Glad to say that orders are complete ( well almost) and the class has come to an end. The class was fun however in the first couple of weeks it has a hard slog 1 tutor to 8 ladies was  a bit of a push!!!

I would love to do another  class again, so keep fingers and toes crossed! Still have to show Elaine how to crochet!!

We had an interesting night with some of my fellow crafters from Troon, we decided to have a girly night to sort out facebook pages and learn to crochet, well we did the facebook stuff, had a lovely meal, drank lots  and the crochet did not happen, some of us did not crawl to bed till nearly 3am!!!!
So please pop over to face book to check out Hot Ceramics , Elins Cards and GemTrees .

I have also been busy  sorting out booking for new craft fairs so not many weekends free at the moment!

But back to the Dalek Invasion!! I am at a fair in Glasgow this weekend which is a very unusual occurrence and decided to make a rainbow of Daleks, I still have the pink one to do, hope to do that today after I make another tea cosy, as the Dalek one I have made is booked by Lynne from Squinty Jewellery

The fair is in Renfield St Stephens in Bath St from 11 to 4 this Saturday, here is the link to  Crafty Critters.

Finally good luck this Saturday to another new craft fair, organised by Glimmer Craft Events at the Kyle Shopping Centre in Ayr from 10am to 5pm both Elin's Cards and Gem Trees will be there so if you are about pop in and say hi!! I will be at the same event on the 30th April!
