I have moved.. (yes, already!)

My new blog address is http://alisonmooredesigns.blogspot.com/




I’m trying to gather up the motivation to venture into the wet and windy outdoors to plant cloves of garlic.  I bought 8 autumn planting bulbs at the end of last year and should have had them in the ground around 21st December, but the snowy weather threw a spanner in the works!

I ordered these lovely handmade beech stakes with gardening line from Kris at EquilibriumDesigns a couple of weeks ago, and so now I have no excuse not to get my plants to grow in straight lines!

So while I am plucking up the courage to go out, I thought I’d post some other handmade gardening related item that are on my wish list!

Starting from scratch…

Well I thought that writing a blog might be a useful way of updating customers, friends and family (and anyone else who might be interested) of latest jewellery designs and what’s going on in my world.  I’ve recently moved to a smallholding on the beautiful Orkney Islands and so you might find that my posts drift into the environment I live in and pig world!

I come across so many wonderful creative people out there and I would like to share their work with you and help promote the handmade message.
