Sitting in that patch of sunlight and making that pile of Crabbittz...
Continuing to sit in that patch of sun and stuffing Crabbittz...
Still sitting in that patch of sun...but this time admiring a rather lovely font we came across whilst making envelopes out of old books.
Making lots and lots and lots of Tell Tails and Crabbittz....we made soo many El could only just pick them all up at once! (please note the rather handsome huge grey Tell Tail...we are both quite taken with him.
Over coming the fact that we didn't have enough trusty brown card to package up our new scrabble necklaces by using some rather scary happy families cards...which we brought but got scared by the pictures so didn't use....but any way, what do you think about the necklaces??Playing with old jigsaw puzzles and making them into bracelets...do you see the one that has a lovely parrot on it (right there on the left)?Admiring our previously empty 'stock for craft fair box' (please note the lovely looking bunting which was,excuse my french a bitch to sew). i accidentally brought bias binding that was thinner than the stuff I'd used before...and i also used thicker fabric, the consequence being i swore lots and lots, abused poor old Nina's ears and got thoroughly fed up...but its all good, cos i made something pretty!Arthur got in on the action and tagged up this rather rowdy bunch...if you listen carefully you can hear them telling everyone all of the gossip they now...well....they have to do something with here huge mouths i guess!
Right...that's it for now, we will try to remember a camera to take some pictures of the stall but if any of you have seen us on the morning of a craft fair then you know that it is a miracle that we manage to remember the stock yet alone a camera!!

3. Hunting out charity shop finds of the embroidered birds in frames kind...
here you can see Franz, the incense smoking man...another charity shop find. i tried to tell him that i was just taking a picture of the birds but he wouldn't have it.
4. This wonderful knitted head band bow...for those of you who don't know, I have rather a lot of hair and at the moment am a fan of the 'scrapping it up into some sort of bun thing and hoping for the best!' method of hair presentation, so feel that something like this lovely creation would really help my cause...
Its from the talented Dolly Knits on Folksy.
5. And last but by no means least...have you heard off Gemma Correll? Woweeeee does this lady know how to draw! we are in love with here pocket mirrors; and to top it off shes from Norwich which is close to where i am from!
Well dearies, that's it for today. we hope this was a tad more interesting then normal broadcasts!Time to go to the shop and make things!

Your thoughts, are as always, very appreciated!
Normal StuffedNonsense broadcast will resume very shortly...she says with fingers crossed as she remembers that StuffedNonsense has a stall at a craft fair in two weeks....and no stock to go on said stall!!
