We're got some white stuff here and made 2 wee snowman!
I've manged to get around to making my blocks for hipbees and due to work and illness have found the time now!! I'm very sorry to all that haven't received them but photos are on Flickr now and they're ready to be posted on Monday!!
I'm very proud of these as I took the time to do them and I've learnt a lot from doing them! The wonky star block seemed simple at the outset but when I started to make the wee star it all went wrong but I was able to salvage it and make a lovely block!
Collette asked for D9P and although she didn't want it symmetrical that's how it turned out! And Catherine wanted a hst block and this took a lot of time and patience and I have been feeling a bit stressed recently but doing this block was very therapeutic and has got my creative juices flowing again when I was thinking of hanging up the boots so to speak! I really have to say thank you so much to di@ willowbeck for her encouragement and thanks to all the hipbees for being patient!!
I've changed the name of my blog slightly to 'sew thrifty fi' as that's what I've become in recent months! We're making meal planners... Using left overs and trying not to call on local takeaways for dinner!! So far we're doing well! This week we've tried out 2 new recipes and this includes a 'minced garlic and brown sugar slow cooker chicken' and a lasagne made the usual way but instead of bethamel sauce you use cottage cheese! Last night we used left over chilli from freezer and an old tikka masala from freezer to make up burritos and they were yummy!,..
I am ok with my toddler watching tv but I don't want her to get to her 30's and only discover her creative streak then (like her mummy) so this is her playing with play dough!
Now I need a sewing project... Anyone any ideas??
bye for now
Keep warm in that cold weather
