It’s all in the preparation


I know I am taking my time over this but the first time ONOODLES emerges into the real world, I want to be ready for this! The date, time and location  for my stall can be found by following this link.


Emma (aka Baldiblobs) has been providing creative ideas and artistic advice. Tom’s room is currently acting as a market place whilst I try different  layouts.

Here’s a petite slide show to give you a preview of how it is looking: you may spot one or two new makes along the way!

The project I have most enjoyed working on recently are the coasters and summer drinks mat. I treated myself to some NEW yarn (not 2nd hand for a change) which was a Rico baby cotton/acrylic mix and ever so soft to handle. Enjoyable all the more as the recent warm front meant a few summery days in the garden under the parasol (actually it’s a well worn plain green garden umbrella but parasol sounds so much more romantic…) with my work and having treated myself to a roll of smarties I noticed my sweets matched my work! Love these coincidences.







Author: onoodlesstitchcraft

An erstwhile teacher who has taken a new path due to illness and returned to an earlier existence exploring her artistic and creative skills of stitchcraft. My oldest son laughs and says I am as mad as a spoon, qualifying the comment that I am not like other middle aged mothers... well hurrah for that! So what do I do? I love to cook, I am never without a craft project or a few on the go, I love my garden, walking, nature and the environment. I am a magpie for vintage patterns and love colour. I get pleasure from creating and giving to friends. I have a rabbit! I ride a bike and recycle... Drink too much tea and like nothing better than to lunch with friends. Snuggling up on cold winter nights is essential. I like the theatre; musicals and dance in particular. Amongst my favourite films are Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singing in the Rain and Fried Green Tomatoes. I love to read anything from Crime thrillers to classics (love Wuthering Heights) or biographies about inspirational people. I hate sexism or racism and disingenuous people. I value friendship and above all else my family.
