Absolutely exhausted....

What a fantastic, amazing, fun day I had. I went to the Stitch/Craft exhibition, show thingy at Aintree Racecourse. I went with a crazy friend of mine (all my friends are crazy which is marvellous) Stacey. We walked, stopped, looked, chatted, I bought some stuff. Had coffee with our lunch, spoke to strangers and met friends. Absolutely shattered doesn't cover it.... it was our first visit and hopefully wont be our last. Ciao

What a palaver..........

Friday afternoon was spent tearing my hair out trying to understand the pattern for this bag... luckily I had 2 fantastic helpers, Stacey and Hazel and between us we got it sorted!!!!! It makes me wonder when books are published whether the patterns/recipes have been tried out!!! The bag is in my favourite material with skeletons (thanks Jo) and lined inside with black/white cotton material. It was a tremendous outcome on a wet Friday afternoon. Ciao
PS. not sure if I could make another one! lol

Look what I won....

This what I won in a raffle last night.... as soon as I saw the bear I said it was mine and so it was. I have a collection of teddy bears, which I can't be parted from (still have my 1st one). So I will have to find a space on the spare bed...... Ciao

Good news.....

Just to let you know that OH has been offered a job, in another part of the country, which he has accepted. So for the time being I will be getting dirty washing Friday, washing, drying and getting it ready for packing on Sunday. That will be the weekend gone!!!!!!! Really exciting, but at least its better than the situation we are in now.... Ciao

Vicky Stampers.... rocks!

As always a great day was had with the Vicky Stampers 'mob' with the gorgeous Jo as tutor. There were several items to make but as always I only got 1 done!!! there is so much laughter, good humour, chat and general mayhem its a wonder anything is completed. This is a pop open card....
or it could be for a favour box, or to put a token in, endless ideas for use. I used green card for mine, with Stampotique stamps. We used a marbling technique with foam, for colouring backgrounds and then stamped, coloured to our hearts content..... mine is part finished as I'm going to put a tag, other items inside. Jo thanks again for a wonderful day. I highly recommend you come and try us out..... Ciao
