A bit of everything......

Firslty congrats to my son Niall for passing his motorbike test yesterday, well done Niall, he is now off looking for a new bike to buy lol

well i have been busy with a bit of this and a bit of that lol but it all adds up to keeping me very busy
firstly well maybe not firstly but somewhere along the line i have been working on a little christmas design for the forum "a crafty natter" we are designing some christmas ornies to share, i have finished designing and stitching i just need to "finish" it and then chart it, i am loving it, hope the others like it too!

then my wood and stitches work, been making some cushion, a sail boat on the waves

then i am making some pram/mosses basket quilt sets for the babies

then back to cushions and this time with matching bunting, there will be a union jack design to match coming very soon.

i have also been filling orders, two gorgeous (if i say so myself) single bed quilts for twin girls who had their birthday the other day, grandma was very pleased with the finished articles and now wants one for herself lol
there have been banners and cushions and more bunting for orders too, cant wait for the halloween fabrics to get here got so many things to do with those lol

other news we have now also taken on the Body Shop and have taken a regular slot on the market, on the days when we are not at shows, so actualy not a lot of time off but i am realy enjoying the ride and can't wait to see where it takes us !

so as i mentioned the body shop, if anyone fancies having a pamper evening with your friends just let me know

right back to the day job
please leave a message and say hi
take care

Our holiday.....

we managed to get a few days away and took the gang to Dorset, Swanage to be precise!, the weather was not the best, very wild but as it turned out home just rained all week, we were lucky, we had very wild nights, although i loved it, the wind was so strong and we were in a caravan surrounded by trees but i loved listening to the wind and rain, each day by mid morning the rain stopped and it dried up and we managed to get in beach time.......
a fimly tradition is the penny arcades, or the 2penny as we always play in, jske is starting young and loved the machines lol

and then onto the beach, he just loved it and managed to eat some of it too along with his icecream...and he managed to bring some back with him, in his pushchair and his clothes lol

and then there was pepper pig(or mum as amee says she is) but jake calls her pepper and niall won her from one of the machines and jake has clung on ever since

i have lost of photos and will share them later but for now its back to work........

quiet weekend....

just wanted to show you this pic of jake taken in the garden the other day, deep in thought, what can i get upto now?
looks like butter wouldnt melt but boy is he into everything, can't believe how fast he is growing and he repeats everything you say now, its lovely to hear hime trying to say words and the names he calls people, Cara will always be known as Rara now lol

had a busy weekend too, i made this bag for Daisy (Nialls girlfriend) she wanted a beach bag to take with us when we go away next week so i made this one yesterday, i have heard a few "i want one" since then lol,
then i have made the fronts on two patchwork single quilts i have an order for, just need to layer, back and quilt them now but its monday and back to work so that will have to wait until this evening to get started on that task.

well back to it..........
