Welcome Back ....

So good of you to drop in again on this beautiful sunny morning.  I thought I might introduce myself,  I'm Bobbin and Bodkin and I love creating.  I live in a 1970's style house in a little village in Somerset with my family, my dog Milo ( a miniature Schnauzer ) and two stick insects called Log and Long.
Milo toasting himself!

During school time I serve school dinners at a local village school but my real dream is to spend my work days sewing, crocheting and needle felting in my conservatory studio with Milo toasting himself in the sun!  Another dream is to own a VW Campervan or a vintage Caravan but I think that may need to stay a dream for a little bit longer!

I have been reading a lot about living simply and it is really speaking to me right now.  One thing that I have been wanting to have a go at is growing fruit and veg in our back garden.  It may go horribly wrong but I guess you don't know until you try.  My biggest worry is Mr Slug!  I don't believe in slug pellets as I love hedgehogs, frogs and toads too much and so will have to find alternative ways of managing things.  Any ideas, I would love to hear them.

Come on little seeds!

At the moment I am working towards my table at the Devon Bear Festival being held at Newton Abbot Racecourse on  Sunday 19th April.  This festival is run by Sarah and Steve from Kingswear Bears in Kingswear, Devon and features new, artist and antique bears, together with fabrics, patterns and all you need to start creating your own teddy bears.  More details can be found from

I will leave you with a quote from Kung Fu Panda:

"There is a saying - Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery but today is a gift, that is why it is called the Present."

Enjoy today.
