Well what have I been up to?
I tried to ring another two electricians , answerphone messages left. I wouldn't mind I only want 3 new strip lights fitted , 2 in the annex and one in the kitchen, anyone would think I was asking for a whole new rewire of the house!!! I had that done at the last house and it is a "big" job but honestly getting anything done here , well don't get me started. 3 months ago we started to get quotes for a new bathroom (needs grab rails, bigger bath , and just more 'disabled' friendly for the kids especially Little Miss) well one quote was huge, one seemed too cheap and one still hasn't got back to me! Last week another survey...still waiting for that quote and still waiting for another to make an appointment...aargh!!!!
Never mind deep breaths now!!!
Lots of housework and clearing out "old stuff" done , mainly in Little Miss' room. She has grown out
of so much, not only clothes , but toys and books and the duvet sets that little girls like so well she
doesn't like anymore. All donated to the school and a lady who lives nearby too has very "girly"
granddaughters....so feel good about that. All Little Miss' teddies (and my she has many) have all had a wash and smell and feel lovely, didn't feel it was fair to get rid of those as she does so love them and when she is ready she can decide if or what stays or goes.
Well as promised
These are a few that have been cut out,
now ready to sew, then add
stuffing, ribbons and the odd button
Christmas trees, just need ribbon trunks added
This one is for us ..lots of
beads on these .
sewing to add all the beads
takes a bit of time
so not making lots of these.
More bits to either machine or hand sew
Stuff for the fair
Little beads added to the above
here and there
I am loving polar bears and seals
this winter time (well nearly winter isn't it ?
It feels like it!)
So I think we will keep these
for us too
These are from a pattern bought on etsy a year ago
Cannot find the designer name now ..sorry..
I just have the paper templates
Angels all put together by my own Angel.
We now have bags and bags of these.
Some for the fair and lots as gifts.
Bookmarks, two of many!!!!
is still coming up for cuddles and ear rubs..... I think I have started something here......I don't usually let him on the furniture......I put a throw on it so he can lay on that.....but last night he had his head on my lap, snoring away and so peaceful, I just couldn't be mean, so not much sewing was done but oh he slept , bless him.
I have die cut new labels now and can do the fair stuff and box it away ready. I have made some lavender things and although I quite like the smell my hands stink of the stuff after filling satchets and decorations, just can't seem to wash the smell off!!!
Big Shop yesterday ,to get the essentials in , I started last week and now feel happy that we have hopefully the emergency stuff (should bad weather arrive)
The first aid essentials have all been gone through, checked and old stuff taken to the chemist for
disposal, new stuff acquired , again just in case.....nearest chemist is 7 miles away. So although it has been a busy week or so I do feel that I am making some progress in the right direction!!!!
I hope too to catch up on some blogging.....a bit behind to say the least. The photograph glitch put
me back a bit but hopefully I will catch up soon...fingers crossed.
I have put a stitchery on my sewing table for when all the fair sewing is finished , shouldn't be too long . It will be nice to be sewing some bits for us . I have also been knitting and doing a bit of crotchet too...more of that next time.
This weekend hoping we can have a relaxing one.
Well until next time
See you soon
