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.

Cross stitching ~ My Round Robin

Hello there!

After completing the 20 gowns, I am now Cross Stitching again ... yay!!

I have a bit more to stitch plus tack the boxes on so others know where to stitch their part then its ready to post! I will put name etc on when it returns to me!

I haven't taken part in a Round Robin in years!! Really looking forward to it 😊

Life's a Stitch
Yes it certainly is!!

I will post a photo when it's done ❤

My plan is to do alot more cross stitching as I think I've worn myself out with all the machine sewing!!

Bye for now

Liverpool, Pottery, Gowns and too many photos!!


Goodness, another long gap between postings! We have been upto quite alot! 

A few weeks ago we went to Liverpool to stay with my parents. It was Mark, Katie & Caras first time on a plane! They loved it! We had a blast. I met up with some of my old friends too! Totally brilliant. My kiddies enjoyed seeing where I grew up and all the sights of Liverpool.

We went to Hobbycraft too ... its a great big crafting shop!! Oh boy we were in our element. Cara bought lots of things she could paint!  Katie started a new hobby of scraobooking. Great, great time had by all!!

The kids have been on a pottery course. Now we have loads of lovely things on display in our home.

I was asked, By the boys Headmaster, to make 20 Graduation Gowns! I have 11 done ... 9 left to do within the next week!! Better get my skates on! My sewing machine has smoke coming from it hahaha

I cannot wait for life to get back to normal and slow down a bit!!!

Keep well and safe!!
