Hia all

Hia all, I just wanted to say I am so sorry for not being around lately, I have been so so busy in the real world. I hate this time of year and feel a little like I am going to be puled limb from limb lately. I have the school show on at the mo, I am planning a day course which I am giving for my local group, more on that later in another post. I also have college work to complete, not to mention marking and all the other teacher and family things! I have then to sit down occasionally and take a few deep breaths as living life at 500 miles per hour is hard going. Ah well - what do they say about idle hands and the devil!!!!!
I thought I would show you my proudest achievement for the show. We have two absolute diamonds in the show, Brandon is Joseph and secretly one of my favourite kids in school! (I know I am not supposed to have any but some just worm their way into your heart and this one is a smasher and was in my form!) and Corey is in year 8 and so tiny I can model and fit on Ellie, he is the Elvis Pharaoh! (Spelling) :)
So here are their headdresses. Boy these have given me some headaches! I made them off two alice bands, and I think they have come out well. I am going to edge Brandon's, the gold, with buttons to weight it a little.I am so proud of the tutun Karmun one, it was really hard with all that lame!

Don't you love my improvised head, a mixing bowl and a bottle of orange squash!!!!

Anyway enough drivel, I have to remind you all about my group Textile challenges new year sign up - it is going to be a by-monthly swap of house fronts and the girls are fast coming up with amazing themes for their houses to swap. We will then in each non swapping complete a challenge which could be a house front of your own to keep and make as part of your final book, display, whatever you have planned! I think it is going to a lot of fun. The link to the group is in my sidebar so if your not a member come join us and have some fun!

Chat soon, love Carol T

Hi Carol, good to see yo popping in. Don't wear your self out with all this stuff you've got going on. The headdresses look fantastic. Good luck with the production.

Cool headdresses! Hope you're 500 miles per hour can slow down soon. Certainly don't want any crashes at that speed.

What fun! Those headdresses are very cool. I too am super busy. I can relate to feeling like I have no time! Fortunately I am having fun with so many projects.

Take care!
