I haven’t totally disappeared…..

March 1, 2015

…..from this site…..

We have been mega busy over at Tyddyn Bryn….. 



So I am still knitting my sweater I started ages ago…. And my second welly boot topper….

I have yet to dye any more yarns….. Easter is looking good though more a big dyeing session….

I haven’t touched the wheel of spinning in an age….. Boo hiss……

Anyway…. Visit us over at Tyddyn Bryn to see what has been usurping all my craft-possible time slots!!!

Well here are a few of my knitting projects that I have been working on over the past few months…. That I can now blog as they have been given to their recipients!!

They received them Boxing Day and spent half of the afternoon running about and pretending to be dinosaurs and mice!!! Great fun!!
Just wish I had taken photos of my sister and mother who tried on the hoods!!! May have some more to make!!

Miss Z also had some mitts for Xmas…

Happy New Year!!!!

January 3, 2015

Happy New Year everyone!!!

Well my goals for the year……

Much simpler format than previous years and less rigorous reflection processes!!!!

1. Finish building a farm house and continue to clear, plant, hedge lay, build on and sort the 25 acres of land (follow our progress here!!)

2. Quit smoking!! Yes something I have managed before but it’s crept back in again!! This time James and I have a plan which thus far (yes all three days of it) has seen us both seriously reduce the amount of cigarettes smoked by over two thirds to be more precise!! So using all the willpower I can muster…..

3. Get Tyddyn Bryn business set up fully, I.e. All my patterns written up and in store, all products online etc etc and to set up as a sole trader proper and to complete my business course!!

So there we go three things, hopefully all achievable in 2015!!!!

Craft markets galore!

December 16, 2014

Recently I’ve had my usual flurry of craft markets in the run up to Christmas!!! School fair, Roath Market and Abergavenny!!!

But thankfully I am now done till march! which means that some of the hats and scarves left over will make their way down to the local shelters to be put to good use! And I scurry on to get my Christmas present knits done!!!
