Well hello lovely folks , how are we all ?? Good I hope  .
It's just a quickie tonight ! 
Now here's a couple of questions , Who's coming to Yarndale ? ........and who is coming to Skipton this weekend ??
Well if the answer is yes to both  why not pay me a visit  , at The Studio as it is open from Friday afternoon. 
Yep you can come and have a nosey at the workspace of myself  ( Handmade Over Yonder )  and my studio buddy Lucy ( Attic24) .

Venue : The Studio upstairs in Coopers cafe-bar , 6-8 Belmont St , Skipton , North Yorkshire .
Times :  Friday           1 pm to 4 pm
             Saturday       9 am to 4 pm
               Sunday         12 pm to 4 pm

Please note there are two vintage buses ( which are free ) doing a loop  between the Yarndale venue and the train station and we are very close to the train station less than a 5 minute walk , opposite B&M .

For the last month I've been working my fingers to the bone ( not quite the bone ) but you know what I mean , so there are lots of lovely handmade items for you to purchase . Here's a peek at what I've been up to and what's is available over the weekend .  

Yorkshire Mill Mice & Linen Hares in an assortment of yummy colours !

Christmas Angel Mice and Santa's Helpers Mice .

Christmas Felt decoration kits , these kits have full colour instructions and all the felt is pre cut and ready to sew . They are a fab way to get crafting and making your Christmas a handmade Christmas and they are easy make too !!

  Crochet pin cushions .........

 I have been working on developing this pattern to sell and was hoping to have it ready for this weekend but unfortunately  I've run out of time . But the feedback from testers is the pattern works and is lovely but they are not too keen on hook size and the yarn . All of which I love and work for me , however I want to test different yarns and hook sizes and make different samples before the pattern  is available to buy . But I do hope to launch the pattern as a pdf file in my shop for people to buy within the next two weeks ( Fingers crossed ) .
I have also got a helper this weekend , a fabulously talented friend who is launching her new range of knitting & crochet related tags , stickers and journals . They are made by her from the concept to the finished handmade item . Here's a peek at Bludaisy products please have a look on Facebook for her as she will be announcing on there once her shop is live ( Thursday hopefully , on Etsy ) . Or even better come and be the first to buy these from the studio this weekend .

If any of you are in the area ahead of Yarndale why not join our creative Coopers group Friday morning  9.15 am to 11 am ish . Come enjoy great coffee , scrummy cake and a great deal of yarn therapy !!  

So if your in the area this weekend come and say hi . 
Ta ta for now .
