I'm so dizzy

And I can be at times, I even surprise myself. After all, I am "dizzyjadey".....which if you must ask happens to be the sizzling porn name we came up with back in the day, when I was testing with hotmail addresses. A lifetime ago, when I used to work. Yep, the name stuck. And by default the inclination, too. He he he!

We're in the middle of some serious upheaval at the moment. Nothing drastic, but lots of busy-ness to attend to. My head was spinning that I almost forgot about today's blogmeet! Ack!


At the eleventh hour last night, I strapped myself to the craft table and made an image in my brain into 3D. Et voila! One cute pincushion made of wool flannel and japanese linen. Funny how the creativity just flows when you will yourself to finish whimsical somethings in under an hour. This one went to live here. I'm so happy its found a good home.

Anyhow, bloggy peeps, methinks I'll take a wee blog break. Just so I can focus on the other real-world concerns we have pressing. Whaddayathink? One week or two? I'll play it by ear. But I won't be far....I'll still be blog-surfing and reading, if not commenting.

See, I've been spinning so much I'm seeing stars! Pretty patchwork stars. (Scored by me from today's lucky dip. Thanks so much, Corrie!)


Cheerio, peeps!

The pin cushion is so cute. I love the lucky dip book, you lucky girl. Oh and I havent even started with the crochet book as yet as we have sickie germs around here at the moment. I have seen a new crochet book which is due out in a few months from Lucinda Guy, like her other 2 books but crochet this time so I will have to add it to my neverending book list. Have a great break.

Cute pincushion! And those stars -- aaccckkk! They're cute -- are you going to make them? Make the break only one week -- we'll miss you LOL!!!

Gosh I could hardly complain about you taking a short break given the amount of 'breaks' I have had recently. Aside from being ill for a couple of weeks I have so much stuff on I don't know what to do with myself. Anyway it will all be worth it in the end!! Love the pin cushion!
