... in the land of blogs. The problems of the past week or two are over - computer is now all singing, all dancing, and appointments and markets all done. It's a good, relaxed feeling.
After this post there will be a little tweaking of the blogroll; I regularly read all of the blogs on the sidebar, but they certainly aren't the only ones. Sue's blog is read every day too, but doesn't appear in the sidebar at all. It certainly isn't a preference thing, more a reflection of how I look at the actual blogs. Some are viewed when here, on hortensia, lots of others are viewed using bookmarks. Which is an extremely long-winded way of saying that just because a blog may disappear, it doesn't mean it's no longer visited. I've just got a slight aversion to blogrolls that are so very, very, very long. And believe me when I say that if I was to put each and every blog that I visit regularly on the sidebar there'd be no room for anything else.
Time for a picture I think.
Bags made for a Makers Market at a new venue; Seaburn Leisure centre near Whitburn. A great location - facing the sea is always good - and many more people through the doors. But very little purse opening for some reason. For the whole market, not just me. But, first time and all that. We'll have to see what happens over the next few months.
Not that I will be there (or anywhere else) for a good long while. Today sees the countdown to going into hospital next Monday. I wish I could say that I'm totally fine with it all, but that would be a lie. What I am fine about is the fact that something will happen which should make life so, so much easier.
This should help; a new project, totally unconnected to anything else. Something just for me, not commercial. As are these:
Teacups for a friend, to be made into teacup candles using soya wax and wood wicks. While doing those I'll also make some for me. To keep. Not sell. Does anyone else ever look around their home and not see any of the truly lovely things you've had in your possession? No? Just me then.
