For anyone ho is interested it is my own fourth instalment to the Twilight saga, feeling that the original fourth book well was a little rubbish, disappointing an anti climatic and frankly a waste of a few days of my life it took to read. Mine is much better, buy it here:

Here I am with my newly purchased glue gun, from the store that sells all WILKOS!!! I obviously took this picture before I had actually used the glue gun as I am disappointed. My old gun got so hot it would burn off like three layers of my asbestos finger skin, this however I can barely feel when it sticks to me, pfft. I have had salads warmer than this gun, ah well. I blame it on health and safety, back in the 90s it was OK to have actual HOT hot melt glue guns, not these days, I'm surprised it didn't come with protective gloves!
The first one being a tea cosy (sadly I have not become some hott ceramicist and knocked out a tea pot) the second a giant party ring lemon cake.
In other news I have finished my Twilight saga novella which will be be exclusively on sale at the Bust Craftacular!

I think I will have to go back next time I'm down there. It's official, museums rule!
Donna started selling her dolls in a few shops in London, there was a lot of interest in these lovely knitted dolls and the collection soon grew to include all sorts of creatures based on friends of Donna's. The creatures are made using machine knitted lambswool fabric so they're lovely to snuggle up with as well as to look at!
One of Donna's most recent creations is her book 'Theknitted odd bod bunch' in which she has very kindly shared with the world patterns for 35 of her knitted creatures. This book is perfect if you are just learning to knit and want your first project to be something you will actually finish. These are my hand knitted creatures from the book...
As well as the book Donna has recently brought out a make your own monster kit, hooray, we love craft kits, and designed her own line of furniture, this lady is unstoppable! Check out her website for a dose of knitted wonderland.
See you at BUST craftacular. K x
