As one door closes...you need to start knocking on others!

 eek! Where has the summer gone? where has the past 6 months gone??? 
Life has been so busy - again! the fact that I am not 'working' seams to mean that I have less time to do anything, how does that work? 

Clitheroe held it's first arts and crafts market - unfortunately it felt like most of the county had attended, and I only managed to get close to about 3 stalls! 
My new favourite wool shop had it's grand opening and a fashion show - the owners knitting daughters made excellent models! we will miss these girls at the weekly knit and natter once they are back at school

I did a whole week of African Drum workshops with these guys - we also did some tie dying, they are all getting ready for the performance here, wearing their t-shirts and getting the grease paint on - they have promised me a DVD of the performance!

And a lovely lady bought 3 of my pin cushions off Folksy for her haberdashery stall, so I am busy replenishing the stock, and trying to come up with some idea's to make for my own web site - I have signed up for a free moonfruit website, that is supposedly easy to create - 3 weeks in, and I now have JuicyFig written in one corner....err, not as easy as I had hoped! so anyone out there who has made a web site on moonfruit, I would be grateful for any tips! 

Next week on the 7th I am hopefully teaching my first ever craft class, I really hope it is booked up - I have to cut all the card this week, and right up the instructions.

Apologies once again for not getting round the other blogs I follow, I am dying to catch up, but think I need to learn to manage my time a little more efficiently.

Thank you for all your comments regarding my job ending - To be honest, the relief has been worth it, and now I can't understand how I managed to put up with it for so long, anti-depressants, counselling, tears, sleepless nights, frustration and bitterness...my time with the Child Support Agency is now another closed chapter in my life.

And - although we have no income at all at the moment the money worries aren't half as depressing as the job! Things will work out for the best, I will make sure of that!

I have not popped by for a while but it looks like a lot has changed in your life. I am really pleased you feel a lot happier now you have left your job, cannot believe a job could make you so miserable, but I guess I have always enjoyed my jobs!

Good luck with the online selling.

sounds like you left the CSA for the same reason me and my job parted company. I know what you mean by not enough time. Don't you just love it.Good luck with the class.

Ah man :) glad everything seems to have worked out for the best so far. I hate it when I'm on holiday and time flies, yet when you are working time seems to crawl... seems time is flying now for you though :P it happens.

Pretty, pretty pincushions. Your second to last paragraph has hit a nerve with me. To find a job that makes me happy has so far evaded me. Work makes me miserable! As for website kits, I am still trying to get to grips with Mr Site! Anyway good luck in everything you do. You have the talent to make do and mend!
