It’s almost Halloween!

The last few weeks have been so hectic! Time flies as it’s almost Halloween.

I’ve been knitting loads and using my favourite Starbucks cup to provide me with my daily dose of coffee to keep me going.

I also received my parcel from the lovely miss Elle knits from ravelry as part of a swap we did. She got me everything I love. The little doll sits on my desk in my room.

I’ve also been working on orders for some celeb clients including Laura Whitfield and josh Bennett of seven dwarves fame. They are so lovely and it’s been a pleasure working with them.

I have also just finished a beautiful infinity scarf in cranberry for miss budget beauty. She is also lovely as you should all check out her blog and YouTube channels.

My autumn/winter 2014 photo shoot is complete and the next post will have pics of all the designs.

Keep warm everyone

Time to feel better

So the sickness bugs have hit the house. I’m hoping it will not be the first of many.

The book I’m currently reading is fault in our stars by John green thank you to my niece Heidi for lending it to me. Not reading it as quick as I hoped because of the sickness but what I have so far it’s been great! I can see why it got such good reviews. I want to read gone girl next that also looks great and I’ve seen the film is coming out for it too.

I had rolo the puppy looking after me while I was poorly he couldn’t understand why I couldn’t go on our daily walks together.

I started to feel better about a week ago but been making a conscious effort of eating better. Natural yoghurt granola and grapes are my favourite at the moment.

Hope you are all well fit and healthy. I plan to start vlogging in October over on YouTube so hope you will all watch me over there too.

Me again

So I’m here again. Today has been a busy day shopping, getting tickets to see a medium, taking the kids to macdonalds and ordering wool for new designs. Oh yes and won an award for another business I run.

Yes it’s been a busy day so far and it’s not been over yet.

Who believes in mediums? I have seen several over the years and I do believe in spirits and have been told I’m very spiritual too. I would love to know what you all think.

Can’t wait to get started on some new designs I’m hoping the wool will be here very soon so I can make a start as the photo shoot will be very soon.

Would you like to see behind the sciences video and pics of the photo shoot? Let me know.

All change!

Wow this blog has been neglected and I’m sorry to my followers here!

But.. I’m back. It has been all change here I have been designing my new autumn winter collection. It’s going to be all about the chunky knits this season.

So let me let you all know what’s happening and has happened .. Within the time I haven’t blogged, I have redecorated a house in less than two weeks and moved out including flooring for the whole place too. Within this time my auntie died suddenly so that was a great shock to us all. This was a very hard time for us and in some ways I am glad of the distraction of a new house. I am so grateful for all my family that helped me I couldn’t have done it without them.

My daughter has turned 17 years old and yes I feel very old now!! My niece has been accepted into uni which I am very proud of she has such a bright future ahead of her.

My niece is also one of my models and her younger sister this time is also going to be modelling for me. Very exciting!!

So I’m knitting like crazy finishing off designs. Planning YouTube videos. Tutorials and vlogs coming soon too. Which I hope you all watch.

Ok I think that’s all for now. Probably forgot so much to tell you all but I will be blogging more so will be able to tell you more as I remember.

Big Changes!

Over the last week or so I have made some big changes and big decisions.  These include a lot of thought about my fears and my future.

Some big changes are always a little difficult I think especially if you have to make the final decision yourself.  As many of you probably know I own Peggy’s Collection which is a UK based knitwear company and I design knitting patterns too.  I also own Peggy’s Yarns which I hand dyed yarns and sold various knitting accessories.

I am afraid one of my big decisions was to close Peggy’s Yarns.   The main reason for this is because I want to concentrate on my design work and it just simply was not making enough money to continue.

I would like to thank all my supporters through Peggy’s Yarns though and I have made some great friends through it.  I will still very much be on the knitting scene just not with my own yarns.  In a way it makes me quite excited to try other people’s yarns and use them in my designs.

I have also decided to start a counselling course.  A few years ago while I was doing my law degree I studied psychology.  I have a diploma in this and I loved the work very much.  So I have plunged into the world of assignments and studying once again.

I believe this will be a rewarding career for me as it will help others as well as enriching my life too.

I will be carrying on with this blog featuring motivational posts, beauty, knitting and my life in general.  So I hope you will all continue to follow my blog and enjoy it.

Sorry if I have rambled a little on this blog post but I had lots to tell you all.
