Hold on a Minute…….

 is that summer I see out of the window?

WOOHOO look at that it’s beautiful !!

it warms the cockles, improves the mood, makes me sigh, isn’t it just the best, and it makes such beautiful things like this


But on the day when they say we are going to get to 30degrees where am I ??? At work of course !

but hey I have a window to look out now so am luckier than some !!

so what have I been up to recently….well not a lot, I spent the weekend with the Pollster (my mate polly and her family) had a fab weekend as always ,we intended on working on the Dear Jane quilts but that didn’t happen, after all the galavanting going on on Saturday I didn’t even manage to turn the sewing machine on but we did both work on our EPP’s so that’s coming on, no idea what it is going to be yet just keeping going to see how big it gets and then decide what to turn it into then.


This coming weekend, well looks like it could be an in the garden weekend getting rid on an old shed and clearing rubbish, with a bit of remodelling we will be set for some BBQ days, yummy.




Well what a week!

i have had two deliveries of stash this week, first was just a little one from hey little magpie, the second was a stampinup delivery, with the release of the new catalogue the first order is always a bit big,


but never mind, like I have said before I am collecting for my retirement!


Cant wait to play with my new goodies, I have only managed to get into the cabin once this week and that was just now prepping for a class I have tomorrow! We shall see what next week brings , I would like to work some more on my simple stories monthly book before we go on holiday in three weeks and get it up to date, I need to order some more photos so we shall see.

i am also waiting on a delivery of a BOM (block of the month) the first two blocks from a quilt Polly and I are starting as soon as it arrives, hoping it will arrive by Friday (but coming from US) cause I am off to Polly’s for the weekend YAAAAAYYYYY

also this week myself and two DD’s went off for a girly day having our hair done……..disaster, two perms and one hair cut later we have to have the perms redone…..cause neither of them took !!! So it’s back for round two on Thursday, we shall see !

Playing with paper

At last I have found some time to try and catch up on my “Remember 2015” album,

I have now finished March, so I am still a bit behind but determined to catch up very soon, I have learned that my memory is getting worse, lots off ummmms and when was that going on, although I have been making notes…..we’ll sort of…..well not very good ones lol I think I need to do better with the note writing, dates, where and why , always important details lol

and for once I didn’t make too much mess, quite a tidy crafting session.



Just a couple if the pages I have finished today


Rain , Rain go away…….

What’s that all about?

its been pretty nice all week, of course I was at work, and now , Saturday,  look at it, we went off on a shopping trip to buy picnic things for our up and coming camping trip, very weird buying those sorts of things when it is nearly dark, foggy and chucking it down but at the same time quite warm !!

and yes I did get some tuts when I said I wanted to take a picture of a puddle with the rain on it !! what do you find that you are taking pictures of that people think you are mad?? ever taken a picture of a puddle?

2015-06-13 17.14.07but our shopping trip was a success, we have everything we need and I even found the picnic bag in the style that I had been looking for ages for, so very happy bunny, some fab coloured plates and cups will make a fab looking camping table,(just hope the suns out for it, we went the same week last year and it was gorgeous)

so no crafting today I’m pooped but hoping to get out in the cabin tomorrow, I need to catch up on my snap book i’m a couple of months behind.

And I don’t mean having a fight lol Been having trouble getting motivated with my scrapping in the past few weeks, since I found out “The scrapbook magazine”is no more…..so very sad that we have lost another magazine, is that no more scrapbook mags in the uk??? We have a mass of card making mags and now sewing mags but where has all the scrapbooking gone? This is my “Our little Princess” page that was meant to be in the next issue of the magazine……. I have found that I craft better in company, when Polly (my sewing pal) comes to stay or I go to her I can sew to my hearts content and we feed off each other and get so in the zone, and although I run a monthly craft group which is great for the sewing inspiration but not for the scrapping……..so I am a l one scrapper, I need a scrapping buddy….any takers?

It is……..

Yay yes it is that day……..thank goodness.

Getting stuck in.

My craft room, I have two main crafts that keep me busy one is sewing/quilting /patchwork and the other is scrap booking/playing with paper, I have a cabin down the garden where I can lock myself away and play.

Just trying to get used to this WordPress site mmmmm we shall see if I can master it!!
