Crafty Blog Update 20th-26th February

I would like to welcome any new readers, and thank old ones for visiting, we’re not that old and we hope to continue to do this as time allows.
If you know of any blogs that should be included please contact us by email or a post on this or the Irish Knitting, Crochet and crafty blogging post. The same goes if you want to be removed. If you are included in our updates please mention if you want to be removed from there too. Please note that neither I or SineadR do this as a full-time job, and allied to that our jobs actually restrict our webtime. We will do our best to get stuff done as soon as possible but that may take a few days or hours. In order to optimise my trawling I have set up <a href="">a Netvibes Page for the blogs</a> this is not foolproof and I may miss updates but it's been better than some of the other options.  I have also decided that if a blog posts more than about 10 or so posts in a week I'm just going to link to the site, unless something in particular catches my eye that's very craft related.
You may notice that some posts from Sundays have been repeated, this is if there is time-sensitive information included in them, this does sometimes lead to repeated links from the previous week.

This week saw Ireland in Election Fever which led to Twitter Issues on Saturday.
