Yarn stash bags for Jollypolly

I have been busy winding little balls of stash yarn into matching sets for Jollypolly. I just love playing with colours so much! I have really enjoyed this little project. Will be listing these and much more stuff over the next few days. Great for little arty projects, perfect for dolly knitting and wonderful for some freeform creativity!
Next I think I might tackle the button mountain :)

Crafty supplies etsy shop

Just opened an etsy shop for crafty supplies. I will be loading it up with lots of lovely bits and bobs for you to create wonderful things with! I am a major hoarder so there should be plenty. For now just a couple of things to get started with :)
I will be selling yarn, some handspun, buttons, lace, beads and lots of other yummy stuff!


Hope you like it!

My new boots

Perfect for those wet English days! The bright pink flowery thing on the floor is Florence the trolley, she goes everywhere with me :)

Springtime Flutterby Mini Dresses

Just finished a new little mini dress design today. I wanted something colourful and springlike that would look good with tights, bare legs, leggings or jeans. I like the finished effect and the butterflies and flowers add a spring like touch! These will be available this friday in the shop. I am having to sit a lot with Stan at the moment so getting some serious crochet time :)
Hope you like!
More pics are on flickr or my facebook page.

Poor Stanley Again!

Yesterday Stan had to have ANOTHER operation! His hip was not healing properly so he had to have a femoral head removal. Sounds terrible but apparently works well so we are keeping out fingers crossed this time! Reached the limit on the insurance claim so the credit card got melted and Stan is home, purring and being fussed by his Mummy :)
Looks like the bedroom refurbish will have to wait...LOL
Poor baby is shaved AGAIN (he was just growing some fluff!) But here is is (a little blurred as he wouldn't move into good lighting for me!)

A new Handspun set for the shop

I have just finished a new set made from my own handspun yarn. Its Falkland wool and so soft and light, I think its my favourite yarn I made yet! I spun a 2 play yarn and also made a coiled and fluffy bobble yarn to match it which I have knit into a hat band. I also had enough yarn to make an extra hat crocheted slouchy with some felt balls I bought from a great etsy seller woollyfabulous
I will be listing it later along with a berry soya cardigan, a baby alpaca hat and a bright red bamboo cardigan. I am feeling a bit better now so I am busy trying to fulfill all the orders I have so I can bring you some new things :)

Commissions update

As from today I will not be taking anymore commissions for a while. This is to give me time to finish the ones already accepted and to work on more new things (and some old designs of course!)
I don't like to get myself overwhelmed as I do have a day job too which is demanding enough. Anyone who has orders with me rest assured I am working hard to get them done :)
Lots of hugs from Janey P xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Feeling poorly :(

Fed up and feeling rubbish so I'm lying on the sofa with stan curled up in a ball on my knee. Hope that I feel better in the morning, stan doesn't care really, he likes it when I lie down!!
