Stop??? Me???.......

.......never!  Well maybe by Tuesday morning I will have to stop for a while - at least until my return from the UK.  I'll at least have a few weeks "basket free".  No need to panic - but thank you so much for your concern!  Makes the occasional frustration very bearable!

Have a wonderful rest of the week everyone!

I keep saying "This is it! No more!"...........

.......but I just can't help myself!  I really do have to stop because there are lots of other things I should really be organising now.  This time next week I'll be on the way and there is just no more time!  Anyway, enough of the preamble and to the show and tell!  This time I played with a few flower baskets!  Hope you like them!!

I hope I can put aside the basket weaving for a few weeks now!  I will do my best!

Anyone attending the Kensington Dollshouse Festival?  If so, I hope you come and say hello!!

So this really happened...........?

We went for a drive to the beach today  and were taken a-back by this sign posted on the side of the  road.......

This could have been a great disappointment for some because as it turns out, someone was too lazy to dispose of their very old and worn synthetic turf!!

Cheech & Chong could have had fun with this lot!!
 (for those of you old enough and insane enough to remember them)!!

I have not been idle...................

....but have been making a stack of carpet beaters!  Mindless but fun (at first!)

I can't believe that Kensington Dollhouse Festival is only 16 days away!  Where did all that time go?

I have my stash of baskets packed - all 180 of them!  And right now, I would be happy not to see another basket for a little while at least!  

I hope you are all having a wonderful week.

Gumnuts and handcarts............

                           I finished off some gumnuts that I had previously been working on!  

And a friend came to call bearing gifts - one of which was a railway hand cart.  So much better than flowers!!  Rob does amazing work.  I will photograph some other stuff of his as soon as I have time and show them all off!

Isn't it a beauty?!  I've already got the basket made for it (in my head, that is)!!  Will get on to that one straight away (in my spare time of course!)

Hope you're all having a great week!

A couple of birdcages......

...made when I felt like having a little fun and experimentation!!  I quite like the grungy effect!!

The one below is just a little more pristine!!

The days are ticking by and it's getting ever closer to the long trip to KDF!  And I want to do so much more - where is the time going?  No matter, back to it!  Take care everyone.
