.....It has been one incredibly busy week. My workdesk has been temporarily dismantled so here is my washing line instead! As previously reported by Mrs Dunnit, I was tempted by the call of a fabric shop in Winchester en route to Portsmouth. There was some sweeeet fabric and as I've got an NCT fair for parents, babies and toddlers coming up, I thought I'd simply HAVE to get some more stash..oh deary me... *grin*.
These little baby trousers are a prototype for some friends' babies. The heart material is going to be the outside of a drawstring bag with the floral as lining. I don't know what the gingham is going to be yet - a tablecloth for me probably as I love it sooo much, I can't let it go (what a saddo....)
Ditto for the little boys' gear - I've made the bag but haven't threaded the drawstring through yet. The heart material is slightly brushed, it's incredibly soft and strokable...lovely!!
Postscript from last week's post: Julia nabbed the grey/green fabric, so when I have time, she's going to get a cover for her Kenwood food mixer. I might have to be creative to 'stretch' the amount of fabric - but I relish a challenge!
After admiring Shaz in Oz's beach photos, I thought I'd share 'my' beach in South Wales. I've just come back from visiting my parents and was on this beach last night. It's called Cefn Sidan (Welsh for 'Silken Back', referring to the sand banks) and I grew up a mile away.
You can just spot me and Son No 2 walking out for a paddle! The land in the distance is called the Worm's Head on the Gower Peninsula. Apparently the Vikings called it Wurm, meaning Snake or Dragon - it's Wales' very own Loch Ness Monster :) Hope you like it, Shaz!!
It's my 50th birthday next Monday - this is the cake my 86 year old mother presented me with......
I had to put up with A LOT when I was growing up...!!
And finally, Harry was infuriated that Ron got all the fuss last week, so here he is, looking rather snuggly inside my tuba gig bag!! Honestly, any warm spot is fair game to a cat, isn't it??!
Hope you all have a wonderful week - I'm hooked on this blogging lark now. It's all your fault.....LOL!!!
