Curtains!!

Hello there!

During the Easter holidays I helped paint my daughters home! We did all but 2 rooms (They were the rooms stuffed full of the furniture from the rooms we painted!!)

Anyway, my wee Grandaughter wanted Granny to make her some curtains that matched her bedroom rug.  I have designed them and sewn them!

I went with a patchwork look! Her new quilt cover has the same colours too! Her room is going to look lovely and very colourful! I cannot wait to see them up!

Just waiting to receive the lining fabric then I can finish them off!! Hopefully this week ☺

My wee Cara was 8 last week. For her party, instead of giving out party bags full of sweets, I made party pencil cases that were stuffed full of pencils, erasers and other stationary goodies! I will say that the kiddies totally loved them, as did the parents!! No sweets in sight!!
 



I hope everyone is well!

Take care and I will keep you posted on the curtains!!

Hugs Heather

What a hoot!

Hello there!

A few adventures from the last week.  It is nearly the summer holidays. 🌞🌞🌞

Our children finish on the last week day in June! 


Ollie The Owl



I made an owl cushion with pockets.  He sits up on his own.  I am going to enlarge the chart and make him big enough to hold remote controls etc so he can sit on my sofa!  
Maybe then I can find the remotes when I need them!!


I have tried my hand at making stuffed cuddly toys.  

Katie and Cara loved them so much that they pinched them haha 




Smart Bear
I was asked to make shorts for a teddy bear!
I think he looks smart 😀

Have a great day and stay safe.

Cross Stitch and a Craft Fare

Good evening to you all!

I hope everyone is well.  Last weekend I did a stall at a craft fare.  

Part of the 'deal' of getting a table at the fare was that I had to do a sewing demonstration.  

Well how could I resist sitting outside in the sunshine sewing 😁  It was a brilliant experience ever!!

I have spent this week organising the house ready for a busy summer and then spending time cross stitching on a Round robin!  brilliant to be cross stitching again!



I must make a habit of getting back to the good ol' cross stitch! I have missed it 😇

Take care!  I'll be back soon!

Great satisfaction and Lovely makes

Hello All, 

I finished all the graduation gowns in good time, well with about a day and a half to go!!  The children at the school had a great afternoon.  I must admit I felt a great sense of pride and achievement in my sewing when I saw the gowns on the children!!  

Here is a photo of them all 😀😍

I made myself a lovely notice board.  My cork board was boring looking so I got out the paint, fabric and ribbon ... oh and the hot glue gun!! 

lovely new notice board

Katie made some foam flowers to go into the vase she made at pottery class 😁

Katies vase and flowers
I made a make-up bag yesterday 😁
The flowers are the ones I was given at school on Graduation day




Katie has challenged  me to make a lion cushion!  Fingers crossed for me!!

Take care.
