The things kids think ...

Good Evening,

This week we have been painting a room ready to have a big change around in the house! The aim is to create more space! My sewing station is now going into the living room ... sounds odd, but we hardly use the living room. We are not big on TV. Everyone potters around doing their own thing! The living room is the biggest room but also the most unused! Also swapping a few bedrooms anout too so the rooms suit the child and amount of 'clutter' they have!! 

So, Caras stuff is in my room at the moment ... I spotted this on her whiteboard ...


No 1 are her teddys. Totally no clue what a banana queen is haha. As for No4 ... she means dont put on her school uniform on Friday as school is closed hahaha! This made me giggle!!

Hope everyone is well!

Bye for now, Hugs
Heather

Sew .... What have I been upto?


Good Morning All,

Well, we seem to have settled back into the routine of school, the 7am alarm is a killer though haha! I got too use to being lazy, I think!  


Katie's lovely fluffy PJ's are too small for her (it's her own fault for growing lol) so, she said I could use them for a memorybear. The panda face would of been too big. So, I secretly turned the PJ top into a cushion cover. I put it on her bed and said nothing. She was totally delighted at bedtime!! 😁 Gold ⭐ for mummy!! A 5 minute sew gave me a smile I'll remember for a life time!!

Last Thursday it was Roald Dahl Day 2018 Omagh Integrated Primary School joined in with this amazing celabration! They also went to watch a play at Drumragh Integrated College! Cara's class could go dressed as a character from one of Roald Dahl's books or dressed in his favourite colour ... yellow!!

I couldn't get yellow leggings to fit Cara so I altered a small pair by adding fabric either side. Then personalised one leg 😁 Since the fabric matched the Pineapple bag I had made a while ago, she used that as her school bag for the day!! One happy Cara!!

Cara ready for Roald Dahl day

The day finally arrived!! International sew a Jelly Roll Day 2018 (Saturday 15th Sept) 

The jelly roll is Play All Day by Moda. I bought it from the  USA!

I made a Tote bag with some of it.  I just have a few finishing touches to put to it then I'll post some photos!

Instagram Beatrix Potter Swap

Hello,

I hope everyone is well, fit and happy!  Its starting to get a bit chilly here, in my little part of the UK!

Over on Instagram, I took part in a Beatrix Potter crafting swap.  I totally loved it.  

My parcel was received by my partner yesterday, so now I can reveal what I made and sent.

Her favourite character is Hunca Munca from the tale of two bad mice.  I had great fun making and creating a tote bag and a lap quilt.  I also added in a few extra goodies










I must see if I can find anymore swaps to participate in!

Have a great day and stay safe.
Hugs Heather

Memory Teddy Bear & Making Memories 💖

Hello to you all!, 

The past few evening I have just been having a 'mess about' with different techniques.

Also having a go at making a memory bear!

I must admit that making the bear is not a difficult or complicated as I thought.
I will definitely be making more!  

I also made a corner book mark, another tote bags along with quilt blocks 😀







It has been a busy few week here. Back to school next week so my little fashion trendy children had to have their hair put back to 'normal!!  They were very disappointed! I must finish getting the school uniforms sorted!  I hate this part of returning to school hahaha!!  I shall enjoy the tidy house though!



I am going to get my bear finished whilst the children are at their fathers, then organise the uniform for Monday!

Have fun, stay safe.
Hugs Heather
