Another post!!

Whilst I was looking through my photos, looking for my Masterchef stuff, I found these pics, which Im pretty sure Ive yet to post. This is my 2nd bag, found the instructions here (

Very easy to follow, & I was so pleased with the final result, esp. as ot was my 2nd attempt at making bags & so far all attempts have turned out very good.

The outer fabric is plain calico, the lining fabric was actually an apron! Used the pocket from the apron inside the bag, & the apron ties became the handles. Think I need to use some stronger interfacing though as Id like it to be stronger (IYKWIM!) Blooming heck I LOVE sewing!! Unfortunately running very low on fabric!! Any ideas where I can get cheap fabrics from? Looking for some vintage, some bright & funky....ooh & would love some pink fabric, maybe with brown dots, as Ive got an old brown tshirt with a great logo that would look fanbloomingtastic on a bag!!

So, halfway through the weekend already!! So far, Ive worked this morning (what fun!!), did a bit of shopping (bought myself a lovely new top!!), went to a 3yr old & a 5yr old birthday party. Will be having takeaway for dinner (prob. fish & chips!) & once the girls are in bed, will be cuddling up on the sofa with J to watch 'My Super Ex-Girlfriend'. No plans for tommorrow as yet, apart from working in the morning again.

Hoping you are having a lovely weekend?



These were my entries for the Masterchef DT.

Kind of gutted I was voted out, but hey!! made it through to the 4th round, which was something!!

Its weird, Im getting really discouraged with scrapping lately, never pleased with anything I do. In fact, Im even thinking about giving it up.

Not making any decision yet though, as Im still involved with a cj, but it just isnt fun anymore. maybe I just need to do some scrapping for me, forget the DT & comp stuff, I think that it has just taken all the fun out of it.

Im still here, just seem to be really busy, but with nothing to show for it (IYKWIM!)

Keely started nursery, its going well so far. Didnt get through to the next round of Sprinkles. Feeling pretty crap, not sure if Im getting a cold.

So, life is pretty fun!!

Will do a proper post very soon, that is a bit more uplifting!! & with photos!!

Back To School.......

Is it September already?

Megan went back to school today, into Year 1. I was so chuffed that she was excited to go back!! Not counting on it lasting though!

Managed to get 1 photo of her, normally she cant stop herself from showing off to the camera, but she still has a few chicken pox, & is feeling pretty self concious (sp?) about it. She looks really short in the photo but thats because her brand new skirt is slightly (!) too big.

Keely starts nursery tommorrow, not sure how shes going to react to it but Im remaining positive that when she gets there she is gonna love it!!

Although, I wish she didnt have a black eye at the moment!

This is what happens when a certain someone doesnt listen to Mummy & Daddy, & continues to throw herself onto her bed, her wooden bed, her wooden bed with a big wooden headboard.

Today has been a pretty good day, spent yesterday cleaning so didnt have to today!! (always a bonus!), so I browsed the net, chilled with Keely (we are trying to potty train at the mo, not going brilliantly, but we are getting there!), did some washing, took the dog for a walk, baked some cookies (oatmeal, cinnamon & raisin, yummy!!), & got my LO completed for the next round of Sprinkles (nothing like leaving it till the last minute eh!!)

Now, Ive got the remote to myself for the evening, so Im off to lie on the sofa & watch whatever I want to. Yay!!
