Afternoon all 

Hope your enjoying the sun shine at last,
I've been up to a bit of sewing again,
I'm still working on my cushions,
But got distracted again,
Easily done these days,
I went to get some more backing fabric,
And I came across a sewing bee kit,
At a price that was to good to miss,
And I thought it would teach me some 
More sewing techniques,
As I want to learn applique 
I'm feeling quite pleased with my self,
As I'm pant at cutting out,
And I had to cut it all out,
And I've never done appliqué 
I think he turned out well
So here Ollie owl the door stop

Afternoon all

My ideas far out way my time.

Fun fair collection that inspired me 
I hope you like it

Champagne flutes

Hi all 
Well at last I've done a couple of projects to share,
I'll start with my folded book 
I've made this for a very old friends daughter,
She got engaged a couple of weeks ago on holiday,
I'm feeling very old,
Doesn't seem like long ago I got the call
To say her had arrived in the world,
She is a book lover so I was a bit
Apprehensive,it could of go either way,
On no you've destroyed a book,
Or she would love it,
I'm happy to say every one appeared to love it

I'm in the quick cards magazine

Just a quick post 
To share my joy of seeing one of my cards in a magazine,
Still not feeling great,and a little wiped out
From a hospital consultations,
That went on to last 51/2 hours in all,
And finishing off in a completely 
Different hospital.
Seeing my card in the mag really picked me up,
So thanks,little Lucy for pointing it out to me

A bit of gardening

Hi all 
Just thought I'd share a pic or two of my garden,
We started the begging of last summer remodelling 
This will be the third time,we moved into the house 
From new some 27years ago
Hubby laid a patio built a wall and steps,
And we had some boarders and turf on the mountain slope,
As the family grew we thought of moving,
But in the end we had an extension,
Which took up the patio and we had many skips loads of soil removed,
We then put in a pond and waterfall which was fantastic,
But as I've got older and had health problems I couldn't cope with it,
So our plan this time was low maintance,we've terraced the garden 
Using railway sleeper,put artificial turf down,
Just a few bits and bobs to do,and we will be done,
Hubby works a 60 hour week plus an hour n half a day traveling on top 
So time is very limited,
But he's getting there

Hi all 
Well I've been missing again sorry 
I'm struggling with some health problems at the moment,
So only really getting essentials done,to my frustration.
I have managed,to regain my craft room back,
So hopefully I will be getting back to some paper crafting soon.
I have how ever managed to finish another cushion.
I've used all of the tilda charm pack up now, 
So I'm on the hunt for more,
I also managed a visit to my mom 
Last week and she took me to her local quilting shop,
We're I pick up a height chart panel,
The lady in the shop laughed when I told her my kids were 
16 & 22 and I'd no clue who I'd give it to 
But had to have it.
So I leave you with a pic of my latest cushion

Baby cushion

hi all 
A it of a late one tonight,
I've been beavering away again,
At my mission to replace all my cushions,
Today I made a baby patch work cushion,
And I'm hoping to start my other larger one tomorrow,
In the charm pack I bought,i could get 
Two large and a small,
And I think I may even be getting a it better
At this patch work lark,
I'm sorry I know most of you are paper crafters,
But as you get to know me,you'll 
Get to know,I'll have a bash at any thing,
Not all go well,
Like my cake pops they turned out like a
Building block instead of little round cake pops,
Any way enough rambling 
Happy crafting peeps

Snazzy heels

Aftrenoon all 
At last a card,to share
And this one is girly
As you know I had some tonic bargains,
From the Range,
This is my tonic high heel shoe,
I cut it from glitter card and drop shadowed it on black card
Some very old dovecraft  papers from my stash
Bow made on tattered lace bow maker,
Home made dazzler,
Charm from little Lucy's blog candy
Lace from stash 
Tonic sentiment

Patch work quilted cushion

 Hi all 
Been a while,again sorry,
Struggling a bit health wise,
And not much time on my own,
Not complaining companies always welcome.
As you probably know,
I'm mainly a paper crafter,
With the odd bit of baking,
On a trip out at Easter, with a friend,
I came across a fabric charm packet,
Made by tilda and had to have it,
I just fell in love with the patterns,
I'd seen there papers and dolls before,
But had no idea of these pre cut squares for patch work,
My mom does patch work, 
She's made both Alice and josh quilts,
Still waiting for mine,
So I gave her a call,
and asked if she would do me some cushions,
 The phone went a bit quite,
So I thought I'd have a go,
After a bit of you tube research,
Here what I came up with,
Have to say I'm really no sewer at all,
But really quite pleased with the end result,
Another new hobby I think,
Who knows I may even make my own quilt 
Hope you like it to
