Reasons to be cheerful part one.

Introducing the Beach Trash Hexies cushion.
A finish-along finish!
(I hand stitched the zipper, then topstitched with the walking foot to hold it firmly in place.)
(Just in case you remember how crap a time I was having with zips...)

April Brit Bee Blocks done (little late, oops)

My weekend, in pyjamas, will be spent doing some of this...

And a lot of this....

let the skully speak.

I'm happy in the blissful misapprehension that you're here cos you quite like reading and, I hope, sometimes get a laugh coming here. So, I'm not going to enter this into the glorious Sew Mama Sew giveaway day.

However, it is a wonderful, awesome sewing day which I love to take part in each year, so I'd like to give something too.   I'll do a wee parcel.  Just a wee one.  Nothing jaw droppingly amazing I'm afraid, but I'll try and make it nice, promise I will.  I'll pick a winner with Random thingy on Monday 13th May.  If you are a no reply blogger and you dont leave your email in your comment, tough luck - I'll be choosing again.  It will be open internationally though.

Anyway, the above hoop.  If you'd like it, tell me what you'd like it to say, as I'd like to stitch a wee bitty something else on it, just for you.

So for all those who stop by every time, or just once in a while, thank you.  Its awffy nice to know I'm not (always) just talking to the cat....
And Good luck, I hope you have a happy and lucky Sew Mama Sew Giveaway day!!

Free beers for the burfday boy!

OMG You're HOW OLD? 
That cant be right, not you.
That age implies we've grow'd up
and I know that isnt true.  

Enjoy your burfday 
today with your missus
and know that you have
all my bestest of wishes

Dear nosepicking, bogey flicking sibling of mine
Like you there is definitely no other.
I'll say this forever with loads of love
You're the bestest ever big brother.
