Apologies and new makes

I need to apologise twice.

Firstly, for making Christmas things.
Madness.
It's not even the end of October.
Sorry.

Xmas blocks

My excuse?
I have a craft sale at the beginning of November, and I thought people might like to buy these little blocks as gifts.

I've used a mixture of old Christmas images and music scores to cover the sides and am quite pleased with how they've turned out.

There's these too.

And, you'll be pleased to know, some commissioned blocks for a friend, which are distinctly non-christmassy.

So that's my first apology.

My second is for my absence from visiting all your wonderful blogs as often as I'd like.
My excuse for this?

One word.
eBay.

I am seriously selling everything from the loft in a bid (ha ha) to make some money and make some space in said loft.

This has so far involved a lengthy process of eliminating the good stuff from the rubbish and creating towering crates of boxes around the house; some to be put back into the loft (to be eBay-ed at a later date), some to be 'charity-shopped' and the rest to be photographed/ put onto eBay/ sent in post.

It's become a new obsession as I begin to check my items to see how many 'watchers' I have (spooky) and how many bids there are on my unopened pack of aged 2-3 Bob the Builder pants (no joke).

So, apologies.
I will try to catch up with you all as soon as I can.
Thank you for following, reading and commenting. You are marvellous people.

Have a great weekend, all xx
