Busy Busy

It's funny how things just slip back into normality after having two weeks away from work/ school.
As usual the Hotchpotch household is very busy with lots of ongoing projects.
Here are just a few of the things going on around here at the moment.
The chicken run
still not started due to Mr. H having to fix next door's fence as no attempt was been made by neighbour to get it done (would have left it but it's right where we are having the chicken run... GGGGRRRRRR!
New fencing
the fence seperating the main part of the garden from the veg garden has finally given up and is in real danger of collapse.....still not started due to having to fix next doors broken fence... double GGGRRRRRRR!!!
new hatch made but not much else so far, although plans are afoot to get wood for bracing and insulation some time this week......YEAH!
Plum tree
still not planted as had to remove old lilac tree that had grown to about 50feet high.

As for me I have 101 things on the go, because like most crafty people I very rarely complete one project before I embark on something new.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to projects that are half/nearly finished, there is another box upstairs with about 150 knitted squares all ready to be made into a blanket for the camper, there is a picnic blanket waiting for badges of all the places we have visited to be stitched on and oh yes a stack of little fabric squares waiting patiently to be made into a cushion........the list goes on.
That's why I love reading other people's blogs because they are just the same as me and I find that a great comfort!
Maybe there may be a TAH DAH moment one of these days

As some of you already know, I am a regular here

It's a fantastic fair with lots of lovely vintage goodies and I have been lucky enough to get a table at the next fair in May so as you can imagine there are even more unfinished bits and bobs lying around waiting for my attention.
I have however managed to get these made between gardening and rain showers this week.

All ready to tie onto bags.

Also managed to crack on with a couple more Jubilee tea cozies as I sold the last two I made more or less straight away at the last fair.

Also inspired by this lady here I made a few circle pincushions, I hope they are as popular as the circle cushions I have made for previous fairs.

Off now to finish some of the above mentioned projects.............or maybe start another little make I have in mind!

Happy Wednesday everyone : )
