What ho,
I've been meaning to get a picture to show you for ages but until today i have failed.

In the first week of the summer holidays we ( me and the minions) went with my dad to a car boot sale. We wondered round and then Tiny spotted something.

My dad had given each of them some money to spend so she enquired how much the item of interest was from the lady running the stall. It was labled as £1 but being small and cute she got her desired item for 50p.

She promptly said it was for me
Its a kitty (Tinys favorite) and its sewing so, it must be a mummy kitty!

in site 2014

How do all,
 Last week they had the in site 2014  at the cathedral in Birmingham. I was going to blog last week but failed! 
Its organised by craftspace and this is the third (could be fourth) one that i've visited.
This year 15 new temporary art works have been created around the cathedral - with public participation encouraged.

Looking forward to next years :)

Skating and my bad photos

How Do!
I know i've been quiet over the summer but i did make things honest!
I tried my hand at doing a pair of ice skating trousers for a friends son. It has a zip fly and everything - well chuffed i am. i used the jalie - skate pants pattern.
I love their patterns for leotards/skate dresses etc.
Anyway - here they are
i tried to get an action shot but missed!

not quite central but at least in the picture!

Preparing for a jump!

barrel pencil case

What ho,
Finally i've got round to blogging!
The Kiddy winks are back at school and as usual i've made them pencil cases.
 This year i got the chance to make something with some lovely fabric called drift by Angela Walters sent to me by the lovely Fiona at the sewing directory.
I made Barrel style pencil cases - and the tutorial for them is on the sewing directory site (v.proud)

I also made one in book worm fabric as my son wasn't impressed with the nice but 'girly' fabrics.

lovely fabrics but not to my boys taste!
