Completed Craft projects already!!

Hello all!

I hope you have all had a great first week of the New Year!
I have been quite productive (for a change!!) 😛

From one of the books Santa gave to me I have made 2 projects from it!  ✂✂✂

Project one is a Quilted Fabric Bowl

Using my Walking Foot on my sewing machine

Both pieces quilted and ready to be put together

Taaa daaa! 

Totally love this project! 

The second project was a Flower Pin cushion

Pieces already to be sewn together


I finally did a wee bit of Cross Stitching too!!  Of course since the Creme Eggs are now in the shops ... I just had to have one 😀

A Polar bear in the making!

Just a few photos from over New Year

Oh what fun ... Christmas and sewing makes!

Good Evening everyone!

I hope you all had a great Christmas!  We had a blast! James' girlfriend, Naomi, is over to stay for a while so it is quite odd having another woman in the house, but it is great! 

Here are a few photos from the day :D

I am so so  sew pleased with myself hehe ... excuse the pun!!

Christmas is coming ... ahhhhh!!

Good Morning all!

I hope everyone is well and preparation is well under way for the Big Day!

At the weekend we went to visit the main man himself!! The children were totally delighted!!

All kiddies together!
Cara and Katie posting their
letters to Santa


Crazy children

Conor, Katie and a penguin! 
We put our Christmas tree up at the weekend too!  I am in the process of putting all my cross stitched ornaments on too!  Here is one that a very good friend of mine stitched for me way back in 2008!!  I must say, its been a very long time since I was in a Round Robin or an Exchange so I think I might sort a few out for 2017!! 

I have done a few bits of sewing but as they are for gifts I cannot show you!!  I have been teaching the children in Year 5, at the wee ones school, to sew!  That was great fun!!

I am now in the process of setting up a sewing club at the school!  I'm really excited! 

Here is me looking very serious lol
I got my Christmas present early off Laura (my eldest) and her Hubby-To-Be Johnny ....

A craft work space in my bedroom!!
This is totally brilliant!!  Now, I can leave my machine (and mess!!) out and use it when I want too rather than keep moving everything so we can use the dining room table!!  WOW!!  I am totally delighted!!

No other news really!  Just busy busy busy getting organised for Christmas!!
Keep safe and well!!

Totally Crazy Busy but I love it!

Good Evening,

Once again it has been a good few weeks since I have posted on here!  I have been so busy having fun that at the end of each day I have just flopped!  

First of all I have actually finished my very first quilt.  I am totally delighted with myself!  Yes it has some flaws and its not perfect but I do not care because I made it! 

Quilt Front

Quilt Back
I am totally delighted and chuffed with myself!!

I am in the process of organising my new craft work space which has been 'installed' in my bedroom :D  Oh my oh my oh my, I am going to have lots of space to make and create, plus a space for writing my pen-pal letters!!  This is my Christmas Present from Laura and her hubby to be!!  I cannot wait to show you!  

The past 2 weeks I have gone into the kiddies school 2 afternoons each week and taught a sewing class :D  It is great fun!!  We are hand sewing a gift for Christmas!  Oh my the children have taken to it like ducks to water!!  I cannot show you any photos yet as I do not want to spoil the surprise for the children's parents!  I made some pin cushions so they would not lose needles!  That was great fun!!  

My box of goodies ready for sewing class

The best thing happened last week ... My parents came over for a week!!!  :D  :D  Brilliant to see them!!  We had a ball!!  We sat and chatted or went out for a short while. Mum took some of the kiddies on the bus into town whilst I entertained dad lol!!  We just had a lovely relaxing time. Cannot wait to do it again :D  #MakingMemories

Abby, Katie, Dad, Cara and me

Katie is so pleased with herself and so she should be!

I have made myself a bag :D  The fabric was gorgeous to stitch on and I got it from Sewing-Online. Fantastic online shop with brilliant customer service!  I just loved this fabric and because I used most of it I ordered myself some more!!  Shhhh don't tell my bank manager lol :D

One side done
