Hooky hanging owl Ta-dah! And a WIP!

 My hooky hanging owl Ta-Dah!I'm sooo proud of myself & it may not be perfect but I'm truly thrilled with it!The owl was actually a little purse pattern off another blog I follow,sadly I can't remember the name of the blog,but I decided I would rather like a hanging owl than a purse.I jus tlove owl's of the hooky or fabric kind!
And on to my current work in progress that I keep picking up and putting down,a Cath Kidston tapestry union jack cushion,that I thought I might have finished for the jubilee Ho-hum nevermind perhaps for the olympics this summer lol!I shall up-date you on that one as it progresses and perhaps I can come to terms with my cushion phobia or rather making them/finishing them and how to?Any advice greatly recieved on how to finish off my cushion.I may just get plenty done with the weather we're having in my little patch at the mo,rainy,wet and windy,and thinking of lighting the fire :-(

Ayyup TIGER!

 AYYUP TIGER!!Hamish's 4th birthday was a rather mixed bag because he actually had a viral infection on the day and was a very poorly boy.These photo's are from Sunday,2 weeks after his birthday when we went to a place called crazee bongo's!He just had to be a tiger on the day and what a great time they had.
 Alice! . . . . . .Just in case you can't guess is a Butterfly!
 Hamish looks rather serious here almost a little grumpy but I can assure you grumpy he was not.
 They had party food,face painting and a fantastic play area with ball pits,giant slides and lots of climbing they certainly worked up there appetite!
Hamish had a homemade chocolate cake followed by a visit and photo with crazee bongo the giant monkey himself.This week has been half term and to be honest I haven't done much in the way of sewing or crafting,I am really disappointed with myself . . . . . . .although I started to make a quilt top about a month ago,with the jelly roll I got a few years ago for my birthday.Hopefully I shall get round to posting some progress picture's on here very soon!And this summer I plan to make a list of all my WIP's to be completed as I've started to notice alot of starts and not alot of finish's :-( tut!tut!
