1st May 2014 - after a quiet start to the year I am back to full swing after a very busy April. The sun shone at the boat museum in Ellesmere or it for the regular shanty and sales were good particularly for my cord and charm bracelets and my cards. I was also taught how to knot shamballa style so now have been using my skills to make these new bracelets which are light and comfy to wear but I'm sure you will agree stylish  and trendy. For the end of April and for the moment I am donating profits to #stephensstory the young man who has been raising money for the teenage cancer trust. I am as usual donating to the royal British legion, multiple sclerosis society Wales and also Marie curie Wales from sales if my hand crocheted poppies, teddies and daffodils. By far my most popular items at the moment are my cards and he cord and charm bracelets now available to buy on the site as well as from eBay and asos marketplace so choose your favourite.
This are the latest:
