The long awaited new arrivals!

Congratulations Marge!
It seems like Alice's guinea-pig Marge has been pregnant forever,but finally yesterday while Alice was at school she gave birth to a whopping 7 babies sadly 3 died they were all very small and weak and we wondered if the remaining 4 would make the night,but this morning although a little wobbly they were ready for there 1st photo.
They are just sooo adorable I just wanted to share them with you!Alice was thrilled when she got in from school to see the new babies.

Strawberry picking Mmm!

Today after school DH and I took the kids strawberry picking and tonight after tea we had strawberries and whipped cream,Hamish doesn't like strawberries and Alice has decided she doesn't like cream,some people are just so difficult to please!Lol.
Hamish had the right idea he left mummy to pick the strawberries while he stood holding the punnet and on daddy and Alice's team Alice did all the picking.
Hamish really enjoyed himself running around too!So much so that he fell asleep before sampling any strawberries and cream.

I had planned to make my Amy butler birdie sling handbag for the friday night sew-in,but sadly I didn't take part due to a tummy bug,instead I slipped into my jimmy's and took to my sick bed!But I will start my bag this week when I'm feeling better and I will post about it.
I'm just sorry I couldn't join you all for the sew-in and I hope you all had a more productive evening than me.

I'm still alive!And I've been sewing!

I just thought I'd let you all know I'm still alive and I've been very productive and done some sewing,I decided I needed some mindless hand sewing in the evening's in front of the telly,so I started with english paper pieced patchwork hexagons in fact and they're quite useful for using up scraps,I do intend to make a quilt with most of them but these few I decided to make in to my 1st ever attempt at applique and my 1st ever wall hanging.Any tips or advice at ths stage would be greatfully recieved.Watch this space I will up-date you as I progress.
