Sunday

Well after Fridays craziness the weekend got calmer.
I still can't get hold of my neighbour (I'm sure he isn't avoiding me!!) but I took the baby to a birthday party and we took the big boys to be measured for wedding suits - and that was it all weekend.
While the other half stripped the paper in our bedroom (ready to paint white with his new toy) I played in my workroom - finishing the bits I've been making for the January swap over on SCC - and making a noticeboard for my kitchen and playing around to make a new header.....
The noticeboard is a circle of MDF (which I got off a lady on freecycle a couple of years ago, she gave me 4 or 5 I think), covered in wadding and fabric (duck egg gingham by globaltex), I used spray adhesive and pva to fix down the wadding/fabric - from the front it looks fab!! Just need some heavy duty velcro stuff so I can fix it to my (built in) fridge.
Because its MDF there is no hope of pins sticking into it, so I am using some of my long heart topped pins (a bit thick for sewing really!!).

It feels good to have done something that I didn't need to do - just for me!!

I love that. I finished one of my notice boards this weekend, but stapled the fabric. Glue sounds a lot easier! x

I was sure I had commented on this post, hmm silly me! Clarie it is wonderful and looks so professional! Lovely choice of fabric! I think the CK bags brighten up any boring chore like the supermarket. I also use mine as an overnight bag for going to the BFs. Hope the wedding plans are going well...sure you don't need any bunting yet? :D x

Claire I love the way you call it "gubbins" lol thats such a funny word! Its good to play pretties, but I always seem to take everything out then just as I'm ready to play dinner is ready so gotta clear the table! Must learn to start earlier! Will post what I made tomorrow morning - got to pace myself tho or I'll run out of things to show! x

It is gorgeous and what pretty heart pins, you clever thing :)

So we both shall have babes in cots for years, I would so love another baby but yet know it is probably never going to happen so that is probably why I am cooing over him so much at the moment

Glad you liked his little bed :)
