Turning 30!!!

Well it's been a busy few weeks with it being easter school holidays and having my little girl home but mostly fun. we spent a few days visiting my mom in Caerphilly, Wales and the weather was amazing so we had a fab time spending many hours outside and the kids not going to be till 9pm every night!
Today was also my 30th birthday and i have been spoilt rotten, from hubby i have received a hot air balloon flight booked for next weekend and tickets to go see Roxette live at Wembly in Nov, might be a while off but i am so excited, they are my all time fav group! the kids got me a new watch and the adele album. Also got a giant space hopper, hobby craft vouchers some cash and few other bits and bobs! Totally spoilt!
But with all the excitement i haven't really had much chance to do much crafting :( While at my moms i made a start on Jake's birthday presents and have made me a indian headband:
and here's the little monkey trying it on ( the joy of him being little is he won't remember when i give it to him in August!)
Now i just need to make all the other pretend play bits that i want to make him, the hobby horse pattern is on order !
then tonight i have just quickly made a little coin purse which i quite like actually and if my kids didn't already have about 3 each i may have made them each one! To be fair could really be made into any size for use as a pencil case, make up bag, wet bag if made from PUL, possiblities are endless!
well that's the back! and this is the front :
Right well i best get off to bed now, back to normal tomorrow school run and all the rest!

Hello Again

Ah well it's over a month since i attempted to start blogging but i never seem to get round to it! So i have decided i will set days to start with, so starting from now i will be blogging on a sunday and wed/thurs depending on what crafting i have been getting up to.

I have actually done loads of things during the past month, maybe that's why i haven't been on here to busy making! Let see what have i made;

- Curtains for Jake's room

- Beanbag for Jake's room ( it turned out a little larger than it should have done!)

- Handbag from my Cath Kidston book

- Coin Purse ( just made that tonight)

- Altered a single duvet into a cotbed size one for jake

- used leftover from single duvet to make a cushion cover for Jake

- Sunhat for Jake

Oops seems i have made rather a lot for Jake best make Emily something over the next 2 weeks while she is on easter holidays! as well as all of that i have also made quite a bit of bunting for orders. Have got 2 doorstops and 3 colours and shapes bean bag sets to make over the next 2 weeks too. think i may be a bit busy!
