Here is a picture of those beautiful purple crocuses just coming into bloom.

Spring is here i spent yesterday afternoon pottering in the garden with the kids and cleaning out the pets,we let the chickens out who enjoyed scratching around and having a dust bath.
I also took a picture of these lovely crocuses coming up in the garden proof that spring is here,plus the last few day's have been bright and sunny still a bit cool in the shade.

friday night sew in,saturday afternoon report

Being new to this it was alot of fun,I made small items,a few little fabric coin purses they make such lovely little presents for birthday's and christmas,in lovely cath kidston and alexander henry fabric,then I made 2 cotton fabric heart door hangers which are all the fashion they also make nice presents,then I decided to do a little crochet so I made some sparkly flowers which are useful for decorating items and then finally I thought I'd round off the evening with a little bit of knitting and made a really cute cotton plum colour flower brooch these too make nice presents for friends and family.So all in all I managed to get a little something done to show you and I actually feel like I've been quite productive for a change.

Mothers day surprise!

What a clever little girl i have she made me a lovely little chocolate cup cake with pink icing and a red jelly bean on top that i un-fortunately don't have a picture of because i ate it straight away and this really lovely card with a cup cake on she's only 4 years old and started school in january and she can already write her name.And this fab card along with the cup cake was my wonderful mothers day gift.
She made it at school on friday and spent all day asking when mothers day was?She woke me at 6.30am on sunday morning and asked if it was mothers day today?As soon as i replied yes she ran downstairs to bring me her gifts.I love her to the best little girl in the world!

goodies in the post!

This lovely piece of fabric came in the post today i have no idea what i'm going to do with it but i just had to have it!
The picture really doesn't show just how lovely a piece of fabric it is it's got a lovely metalic gold in the pattern.

OOPS! IT'S BEEN A WHILE!!!  It's been a while since i've been to my blog to write anything with very good reason i've been suffering from february-itis as the ladies on bql call it.
So i haven't really had much to report as i haven't really done much shame on me un-like some of you bloggers who i must say are extremely productive.
I do intend to do alot more this month,one which i have already started is a quilt top that i have been piecing for the last 7 years! Yes you heard right and not even that complicated a quilt top just something that i started then decided i didn't like the colours of and now have decided that when hamish my youngest child is ill and i sleep downstairs with him it would be handy for me to have a nice light weight quilt to sleep under.
So i have picked up the offending quilt top to finish piecing i shall machine quilt the whole quilt as i need the practice before i attack alice's quilt with the sewing machine.
