November 2009

Well that well known soft drink advert is on the tv and the shops are full of decorations which means the season of giving is almost upon us. My American friends refer to this coming weekend as ‘black Friday, cyber Monday’ but even when I worked in a shop as a student I knew we’d be busy during the last weekend of November – the last pay day before Christmas.

So as a way to help out a bit during the holidays I’m offering free Worldwide shipping in my etsy shop until 4th Dec.

The last posting dates from the UK are:

International Airmail 4th Dec, UK 2nd class 18th Dec and first class 21st Dec.

To qualify for the free shipping just mention this blog in the notes to seller and I will either send you a revised invoice or refund you via paypal.

I’m adding new items all the time so please do come back and have another look or convo me if there is a specific items that you’d like.


A couple of weeks ago I was felled with a chest infection (again) made all the worse by the fact that you can’t take anything stronger than paracetamol to ease the symptoms when you are pregnant. In the end the doctor prescribed me some antibiotics – which brought on some much welcome sleep but left my brain too foggy to do any work.

So I sat and crocheted – I searched my stash for pure wool and made some little mobile sized pouches. Then I bunged them in the washing machine and anxiously waited for the results. Well out came some very strong pouches that were still big enough to hold a mobile phone and some essentials. I decorated them with buttons and added a clip and they are now in my etsy shop.


I also finished off something that I have been working on for a while. I didn’t plan it but once I started with this wool I knew that it had to be made into a bag and it took shape of its own accord. It is truly one of a kind as I wont be able to replicate the pattern or source the yarn again.

I’m working hard to fill up the shop with lots of items suitable for the festive season as gifts for yourself or others. The next couple of weeks are traditionally when most Christmas shopping is done.

So as a little incentive I’m offering free shipping from now until Friday 4th December for anyone mentioning my blog in the notes to seller at checkout in my etsy shop.
