Rainy day bag

This is my rainy day bag.. Made at Judith's saturday workshop yesterday!! Do u think I'll get any rainy days to use it?? The lining and base are waterproof and so are the handles!! Think I feel another adjustment to the pattern Ang make a nappy bag but might b a bit adventurous!! Oh well we all need a wee project to keep our mind ticking over! X

I've finally found "the one"

After many years of looking for "the one" I have finally found him! He's so well groomed and well formed I can hardly believe I've lived without him for so long! I didn't even think that I was in need of him until my other "the one" was misbehaved left things on the counter and I was forced into a situation of searching for him!! Here is... Wesco.. My single bread box.. (just big enough for a loaf and pancakes) He goes perfectly with my kitchen not taking up too much room on the counter either. It's Just like I've been waiting for him to arrive.. My life is complete!!

On another note have been having trouble making fairy cakes.. They always peaked in the middle and were overcooked on the outside and still gloppy In middle (yuck).. So I turned the fan off on my fan oven, followed instructions for conventional oven and they've turned out perfect!! (just in case anyone else is having the same problem)!

Chat soon

I haven't been about in a while as i was on holidays in cork for a week which was brilliant.. Very chilled out.. ! No we didn't get 'the weather' but we did get chill out time and glasses of wine and plenty of laughs with my gorgeous husband and my wee monkey that's now walking.... I got some embroidery done copying the pattern on Lucy's gro bag... And I also got caught up in the fifty shades books.. Onto third now and sewing will start at the weekend.. I promise!!!

I've also become part of a bee... I've never done anything like this before but I'm going to give it a whirl!! I just hope I can meet all the deadlines and don't let the "hipbees" down!! Looking forward to getting to know the 11 others!

Back soon
