I have finally in my bit of spare been getting some sewing done, this one is for a friends daughter who is having a baby.
Nice bright colours for liitle eyes to look at, now just to sew it all together and add the borders and backing.

Good Friends

I am so lucky to have so many good friends in my life, i treasure them all and they play such an important part in my life.
They are like a box of chocolates, all different ages from all walks of life but all so caring and loving.

Sheep fabric

Well i think this is the favourite piece of fabric out of all of it, lovely sheep. I wonder when i will be able to teach Caprice how to use tyhe sewing machine, may be next week? I wonder?

More Fabrics

Can't you just see the delight on Caprices face at finding some lovely fabric and believe me she found a lot of uses for it... even gave her liitle bears a blankie to sleep

My Precious Girl

I had a lovely morning with my grandaughter Caprice and as you can see she is already interested in some sewing and sorting fabrics... what a delight to finally have a girl in the family i can share with... i am in heaven

Box Of chocolates

I am so lucky to have a lovely friend who lives in the UK. We have never met but have corresponded in one way or another for about 11-12 years i think. We have shared a lot of ups and downs in our lives but always been there for each other. I have not been very well for awhile and my dear friend Wendy-Sue in her thoughfulness sent me the most beautiful box of miniature bears. They arrived in a box and were wrapped in their own little paper with a message on each and had the appearance they were chocolates.
Receiving them has made my life feel so much better and having my lovely friend think of me just gave me the most enormous lift not to mention i shed a number of tears. Thank you my precious friend.
