Ho ho ho

Terrible photo I know but I couldn’t wait until tomorrow. I’ve finished my first Christmas make – a scandi stitch cushion. Don’t tell anyone it was meant for 2011. No, don’t. Do you like my label? I’m inordinately excited to have labels. It might make me finish more things. Stranger things have happened.

Capture the moment

Two minutes after taking this picture Little One came in and chaos reigned again. Sigh.

To potter…

My morning in pictures. Just me and Little One as Elder is off with OH at a Car Thing. We’ve had a lovely time. Tidying (me), shuffling around (both of us) and racing cars (LO).

Quilt lovers’ delight

I got a parcel through the post today…want to see? I warn you, if you are a quilter you’d better settle down. I’m itching to play with these babies, vintage 1940’s blocks, with original papers attached. I’ve got a few ideas already. Watch for Christmas list developments soon…enjoy! The boat is my favourite.

What’s (in) your bag?

It’s Choose-day everyone ..and today I choose to get rid of chaos in my day. A big ask you might think but baby steps and all that…this morning was chaotic to say the least. I couldn’t find my headphones (big problem, my music laden walks are a treat in my day) and I’ve tidied my…
