How Cool is colouring in again!!!!!! !!

This i received from dd for my birthday, two of my favourite things, Japan and a book to colour. So clever with all the Adult colour stress relief books  about nowadays!

Loved the one i received.

Great to work on when you need to be doing something and hands and eyes need a rest from stitching!!!

Something to Meow about!!!!!

Even the cat gets a break away every now and again, but this time he "Oscar "had something to boast about.
.............He had his  t w e n t i e t h  (20th)   birthday a few weeks back,

Even though it isnt sewing related , he really does witness  many hours of me with needle and cotton stitching away so I thought it was worthy of a post!!!

Progress on Quilt!!!!

I have been busy this month doing the next 3 blocks of my Sophie's quilt.

I have finally finished   block 3 of this block of the month quilt that I am doing.   Always a great sense of achievement you a finish the month.

What a great way to return borrowed pins!!!!!

I recently had a birthday and Suzie made this gorgeous pin cushion with a message say "just returning the borrow pins."  What a great way to return them, yes took me a while to see them too!!!
The cute little red and white flowers.

Thanks Suzie, l love it.
And justlove the wool feel, and that it is full of squishy walnut shells.

And the card.... How awesome, thank you.

Meet Goffrey!


I made this for a friend who loves her dogs.
As she is also a keen sewer there is plenty room or room to store the pins.
I made him from the sleeve of a woollen jacket, just love the achievement of recycling.
