Spent the day yesterday (after DS1's tennis lesson) sorting out bedrooms and generally tidying up and clearing clutter, so today we are a little bit tidier and a little bit less cluttered! bin is full though! Have had a lovely day today catching up with my Mandy Shaw quilt and organising the bindings and background squares - involved lots of ironing (could use this for my challenge couldn't I!), lots of cutting and getting busy on my sewing machine. There is still a long way to go on the quilt but three of the applique squares are now completely finished and five just need a bit of tweeking - buttons and extra embroidery will all be done when the quilt is all put together - will be doing a bit more of this this week I think - it's been very relaxing!
Had a great day last Thursday at the NEC - bought a few bits and pieces but nothing major and actually came home with some pennies left over! A trip to Hobbycraft or Bramble Patch is on the cards I think!
Also did a fair bit of scrapping/crafting last week too - here I have two more items for my challenge, firstly the layout:
Then I haven't managed to get a tag completed yet (still a day to go though!) but I have done these:
Anyway enough of me waffling - I will finish here to give you all a breather! A big hello to Susan - thanks for following me - hope I haven't waffled too much!
Thanks for looking and don't forget that there is still time to join in with my challenge of using housework as your inspiration - details are here.
Bye and thanks for looking!
