What I've been making...

This month has been a busy one...

I successfully put together and held a fundraiser for Rape Crisis, 
at which I also performed, playing guitar and singing,
and we managed to raise over £700!

I've started training for a new role at my main job,
in which I'll be working with funeral directors (intense!)

and I'm finally learning to drive!! 
(which, by the way, I love!)

But in between everything, I've been very deliberate about finding time to make a couple of bits here and there...

I've started on my Christmas decoration range...
This little guy is going to form part of the Tartan set....
Which will be one of the first of my Folksy products soon!

 I've also been loving spending some time on some good old fashioned embroidery...
...especially trying to perfect my thread-handwriting.

And on a personal note... I've finally started counting down the months until I get married... 
and that can only mean making a wedding ideas folder! 
Ohh yes...
Currently it's more a wedding ideas heap of paper, but it's getting there.

So what's everyone else been making this month?
