An Ode to Sara

Well my friend Sara @ All About Eden posted a fantastic tutorial on a pouch , for multimedia items or whatever you choose!

Well I started mine with no idea what would live in it! I did make the loop for the button but then omitted it as I hadn't concidered my applique being in the way *blush*

So I chose to make my pouch into a cigarette pack holder, I am an ex smoker and sick of seeing packs lying around from my other half, he is always changing packs because he can't stand the new "health warning images" so this suits us all :)

Thanks Sara x x

P.s such a bad pic is dark And I had to rush rush rush! *blush*

Rediscovering Embroidery

Theres no point in sewing with a machine if My hand sewing isn't up to much now is there!?
So I decided to don the hoop and threads again and try a few stitches and embellishments .......

It's a start! to be perfectly honest I struggle just seperating the threads! Rome wasn't built in a day.

A Lesson Learned

My Millie (5) found a Tamagotchi in the bush at the supervised playground, she handed it in like a good honest girl :) now it's been 3 months! no one has claimed it so she now has it! She was over the moon!

However, with 6 tamogotchi's between them before, I was only too pleased when the batteries failed them and I could stop pandering to their every needs everyday!

So Once again I find myself jumping up to the sound of bleeps every so often during my day!

Meet our new family member, the "flufy" family

(they are no longer one but a clan of children characters on one screen! )
