I have bought a toy sewing machine for Sophie to have a go on from Ebay.. Due to such an extensive needle guard, I have un-threaded it and now I can not thread it back up again. Boy am I in trouble when the little lady gets home!
Anyway, in the meantime a quickish post.
I am chuffed that my log cabin block for Sew Mama Sew is featured in the highlights again. It is in blues and I have already started a pink and flowery version for Sophie's summer quilt.
I have also been busy making cards this week. One for my friend Fiona whose birthday is on Sunday. I tried some new colour combinations and a "gate" style card opening.
She is not too well at the moment so hopefully her present will make her smile when she opens it.
I was also commissioned to make a few Mother's day cards by Dad's so that their children could give them to Mum, that was a fun task to do..The card below was for a work colleague who has bought several of my cards over the months. I did not make many for work as I pushed the boat out for Valentines on request then only one was actually bought. I am going to do them to order only from now on and see what happens.
Tomorrow is a busy day with visits to banks/postoffice/supermarket etc then on Sunday it is out to lunch with my in-laws for Mother's Day. Sophie has brought a mysterious package home and I was not alowed to look in her book bag as she ran upstairs to hide my surprise for Sunday. At 5 years old this is really the first year that she has taken control of this annual event and I have to say that I am really looking forward to seeing what SHE wants to organise and give, does that sound really soppy?
I received in the post my next installment of knitting and at long last I have been given the layout plan for starting to sew them together! So hopefully I will have some done soon.
Have agood weekend!
