Regrets, I've had a few But then again, too few to mention

It's with great regret I am ending my downloadable free files. I've been happy to share my files, but have decided that as someone has given out the password (To many many others) without my knowledge, I feel disappointed to say the least and as of this Sunday 6th Oct 2013 the files will no longer be accessible.

I'd like to say thank you to those who emailed and asked for the password and for your kind comments. If you have made anything with one of my files I would dearly like to see, so please let me know, thanks :)

Cottage Life

10 weeks in and all's going well. The move took 3 days! One of those was just for the items in storage!!! How on earth DH & I got it all moved is a miracle, well truth be told with out the help of *Jason* I don't think we'd have made it, thanks again *Jason* you're a star 

So here we are moved in, settling in, and now I've finally got rid of the feeling that the "real" owners are about to turn up...I know it's weird but that's how I felt for about 4 weeks!

We've started a little decorating/D.I.Y. and got the wood burner up and running like new, can't wait to try it out, nice cosy eves in front of the burner crochet in one hand and a hot choc apple crumble in the other...bliss :) 

Talking of apple crumble we've already had a bumper crop of cooking apples, making apple crumble on the menu almost every day. 
There are plenty of other goodies to see in the garden, Green finches, chaffinches, a family of 3 woodpeckersa robin, a nut hatch, blue tits, great tits and many more. 
The local villagers are all so very friendly and welcoming, the pub offers a good menu selection and a variety of "games" to play; we've had hours of fun playing charades, guess my name and jenga, whilst supping a pint and tasting the delectable delights 

Now we just need to get the lounge decorating/D.I.Y. finished and wood burner installed before the weather turns cold.

Moving house

Well it's finally happened, We've sold up and moved :)
We had an offer in February, less than a week after going back on the market after our last sale fell through in the new year.

We're in Rented at the mo, not ideal, but as we hadn't found our "dream home" it was our only option.
Then on the day of our move we saw our ideal home on line...and here we are 3 weeks after our move...offer accepted on our dream cottage :)

The next 2 months or so will be paperwork, survey, measuring for curtains, blinds etc.
DH is very excited about this cottage, I'm a little more reserved, just in case it doesn't go as planned.
So far all's looking good.

Wish the weather would decide what it's doing, frost on the cars this morning and now glorious sunshine :) roll on sprummer (spring/summer)

Hope you're all having a good week.

Please share the creations you've made using my free cut files as I'd love to see them.

Freebies, moving, samsung and crochet

A test post from my new tablet :) and a brief blog update.
Crafting supplies still in storage...including my cutting machine so no new cut files for now, but I have started crochetting/hooking as its affectionately called and I'm loving it. Crochet supplies take up way less room than my crafty supplies so I can crochet in any room with little mess.
Crochet Donkey hat.

Happy Homely New Year

Happy New Year to you all. 
I hope you've all had a good start to 2013.

I was hoping I' d have some positive news on our move and our new year plans, but alas it's been all doom and gloom here, what with drains a chimney and a digital recorders not playing ball...we're also now back on the market! Our buyers have changed their minds, not due to the house but personal we're back to square one.

And I went shopping! Well gotta do something to bring a smile to my face and shopping I did. We've got two new Ikea sofas arriving early next month, and I'm now the proud owner of a DAB radio for the bedroom, so nice to wake up to soothing music.

Well I'm off to the garage to unpack my decorative items and get things looking homely again. Have a good week :)
