Hi everyone,

A big thanks you to all who came along to visit the Smailholm Craft Fair at the beginning of this month. That was the first of the year for Gillybean.  Although the fair was a little quiet, it was lovely to meet some very interesting people with great crafts.  I must say the Scottish Borders is certainly a great place for fabulous crafts.

What’s been happening ….

Hi folks, 

This month Gillybeanjewels has been making some earrings from buttons found in my sewing box,  After dusting off the sewing machine with the idea of making some new cushion covers, I decided that maybe I should clean out the sewing box first!!  Needless to say I found some lovely buttons and immediately thought that making earrings out of them might be the best option.  So the sewing machine and cushion covers got put aside.  Maybe get round to that job sometime soon ….  

Anyway I took the new earrings down to the Cottage Garden Craft Shop in Kelso for sale.

Right I will just get those cushions made now and then get back to making jewellery.  Also trying to update facebook page.  So its all go at the minute..  My thanks go to Karen Lowrie for coming along to help me yesterday with facebook.

'Hearts and stars'

‘Hearts and stars’

Hi all this is just a wee reminder to let you all know that there is a craft fair at Smailholm on 2nd March. Come along and see me .  On such a  bleak day you just want to curl up into front of a roaring fire with a mug of hot coffee and a good book.  But instead I about to put on my jacket and take the dog out for a walk.  He is looking at me, willing me to get a move on!!  Anyway when I get back in I intend to sit down and h ave that coffee!   Just making a few more of the same that are in the picture here. See you all soon.
