We’re going on a stash hunt…..

Ok so after the inspiration from Zoe from Pinsandneedles I’ve traveled through my stash….. 

On the day I had a helper….

I’ve bagged it all into potential projects…. Lots of the yarn though was bought for projects for me which have as usual languished……like this beautiful Sweet Georgia DK which is for a top for me…. No pattern as yet…. I think I was going to make one up

We have a few potential hats…. 


A sweater for William….

Some more hats….

A Baable for me….

A hat and some socks for James….

Heaps of socks for me and a Sockhead hat!, William will of course get socks from the spares!!!

A shawl for me…

And heaps more some already with patterns, some mitts, some more hats, a closer look at some gorgeous skeins…. Phew it’s gonna be a busy year!!! 



Some of the stash I have chosen to ignore for now…..

Then my helper wandered off…

So I didn’t manage to start the fabric…..

The long time coming shop reopening!!!

This Friday I will be reopening the shop with the yarns and patterns!!!!

I have done a yarny stock take…..


I have revamped my patterns…..

And have decided that Cheeky is 9 months!!!!! So it MUST be reopened come hell or high water!!!

So Friday!!!!!! Friday the 20th of January!!!!! 

Head over to Tyddyn Bryn on Etsy

And use the discount code 9monthsalready for 15% off until Friday 27th January

Then over the coming weeks I will be adding to the other shop sections….. 


Here is a sneaky peek at one of those sections

26 books

Aka one book for reed two weeks of this year!!! Sooo before Cheeky was born I read a bit of a book every night without fail…. Since he was born I have not picked a book up….. So now that he is starting to sleep some more in his own cot not the cosleeper…. I’m going to try this challenge!! 

  
Here are some of the books that have made my potential list this year!!

   
    
    
   
 Some are in print some are on kindle!!! Admittedly some I’ve started previously and all bar Game of Thrones will be restarted, I’m on about book five of seven there…

I also have two Tara Swiger books to read, map your business and market yourself….

So far I have read The start up guide….To completion! So that could fall under female Author or book to improve an area of my life…. 

I’ve started to read Duane Elgins Voluntary Simplicity… So let’s see how I manage!! Baby… That thinks sleep is for the weak….. Returning to work… Sorting the smallholding… I think I can manage  a book every two weeks!!!

Farm renovation updates!!!

We have bedroom curtains!!! I made them!!!! With a lot of cutting out help from my lovely neighbour, without whom they would not be so well pattern matched!!! They need hemming but I’ve put them up to drop first!! Love them!!!!

I have cut out the fabric for the hall curtains!!! Pattern matched now I know how/that I need to/what that means!! Lol excuse the wobbly photo rushing again!!! But my hallway is the perfect width to cut out from a bolt of fabric!!! 

Downstairs big changes!!!! It’s practically decorated and we have a home emerging from the building site!!!



It’s all coming together!!!

Soon we will be onto fixtures fittings and finishing off the bathrooms upstairs and more doors and handles!!!!
