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!

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!!

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
