Day 76- Ouch!


Good evening!

I hope are all of you have enjoyed a sun-shiney Sunday, and are feeling relaxed and refreshed ready to face the week ahead.

Well, I need to start today with an apology. Mum saw yesterdays post and thought that my soap box ramblings about Eurovision sounded like sour grapes. I hope that you could read that I had my tongue in cheek as I was writing. To be honest, we tune into Eurovision every year, sometimes with a score sheet, (but don’t tell anyone!) It has become a sort of family tradition here, as we discuss the performance and costumes of the competitors. We love predicting the way the voting will go….like Cyprus always giving 12 points to Greece; and the Boznia-Herzogovena (is that how you spell it?) / Macedonia/ Serbia triangle of patting each other on the back with  points! You’ve got to admit it has become somewhat predictable, and it was this I was commenting on rather than arguing about who the winner was! Hopefully you saw it as the silly banter it was meant to be. 🙂

Moving on! Today was another hot day. Not as breezy as yesterday, but hot all the same. The sunburn that I obtained yesterday meant that I was woken every time I turned over in the night. Ouch! I started today lathering on layers of factor 30, and covered shoulders and back before venturing anywhere. I really felt for those brave souls…DH included….who ran tha half marathon today. It was a fantastic achievement especially  in this heat. Congratulations to all of you, whether you finished or not, I certainly couldn’t do it

While Dh was pounding the streets with few thousand others, the boys and myself toasted Dad with coffee/ tea/ apple juice and Danish pastries! Hurrah!

Then on to making. So what did I do? Well I still had some familiar fabric left, and overjoyed with the shoulder bag I made earlier this week I decided to create this……..

This is using the same pattern as the floral and tartan bags…..but I love it. These bags hold loads, and since making the larger shoulder bag I have not stopped using it. They are great for taking away too as they can be packed flat, and are so much more appealing than the normal tote bags. This one may be making its way on holiday too. Hurrah!

I have not forgotten about the little triangles that I showed you earlier this week too. I just have not had time to finish it yet. Maybe tomorrows Tadah?

Anyway I have a snoring Rooster next to me who needs moving to his bed, so I shall sign off for tonight.

See you tomorrow.





Day 66- update


Good evening again!

Just to let you know, it is confirmed that I will be at a craft fair again. This time it is at The Workstation on Pater Noster Row (near the Showroom), Sheffield City Centre.

It will be lovely to see you!

I am in panic mode now as this fair is Vintage and craft, so a competely different clientele. How many bags will I be able to make in the next 24 hours?

See you tomorrow.xxxxxxx
