Trying out my new sewing machine....

I've been playing with my new lightweight Janome sewing machine which I love... I wanted a lightweight machine I would take to our sewing group    instead of lugging my big Janome machine with me.
I found some scraps of black and white fabric with an animal theme and just about had enough to make a scrap tote bag.
It has a small pocket on the front and I even managed to find a Zebra head button in my stash which I've used...


                                                 Back of bag

Inside are two large pockets, really pleased with the end result although the fabric isn't brilliant....
My cathedral window cushion front has been hanging around for ages so I also managed to complete that.

Hopefully I will have a card to share with you at the weekend...

Little bit of Vintage...

A really quick card today, I used this lovely image before  but she was already mounted on the oval die cut so found some pretty papers and popped her on a card.

The grandchildren on still on holiday for another week so no time to craft, plus when I went to Shepton Mallet craft show last week I treated myself to a new sewing machine which arrives today so guess any spare time I get I will be 'playing' with that.

Our youngest grandson who is 6 learn't to ride his ride a couple of days ago and he was so pleased he had 'cracked it' then I received a photograph from my daughter showing me a picture of him outside A nd E with his arm in a sling!   !  BUT  it wasn't that he'd fallen off his bike he had fallen off his scooter so another broken arm, last time it was his left arm...boys!!

The weather is still nice down here in Somerset albeit a little cooler but the sun is still shining...

Beautiful you in the Med....

A quick post before set No.2 grandchildren arrive today and we are making Easter nests with shredded wheat, chocolate and mini eggs....wonder how many eggs will actually end up in a nest!

My photograph is on a slant becasue of where I take my photographs I really need to find somewhere better thats got light, my carft room is quite dark.
..Two differents stamp sets here and I wish I'd have coloured the background  differently but is an 'ok' card...placed the image on the SU brick wall Embossing Folder...

Thanks for popping by

Stamping Day....


Yesterday we had a lovely stamping day with Jill Lackford of Jill Stamps up.....I will post the projects the girls made later....
 We used the Stampin Up set High Tide and these are a just a few of the samples I made for our day.
The above card I make as an Anniversary card....


 This card I used only the grasses stamp for the branches and the bird stamp from the set....little bit of sponging and created a few hills.


 I just love the little bird stamp from the set and used it to make some background paper to create a parcel card...


 Again using those cute birds another simple inked card...


My last card to show you is a sunset one...again using the grasses as branches.
Jill produced some lovely 3D projets for the girls to make (will post later)

We had a fabulous day and I think we all come home very tired ...but thank again Jill for all your hard work...

A very Happy Mothers Day to you all you mums out there and hope you are being thoroughly spoilt...

Enjoy the lovely sunny day...

Golf anyone?

Its over two weeks since my last post, my eyes are a lot better but still not completely clear, its made me quite miserable not being able to do much crafting and I've really missed it...

.I've got lots of Hunkydory toppers which I can make up into cards so at least I can do that now. This topper is  one  from the Magnificent Men collection,
I've found a huge box of embellishments that I need to use up and amongst them was this little golf tee and golf ball, shame a didn't have a third one to put on my card as things always look better in 3's..
My photograph isn't brilliant and the wording looks blurred the the actual card is fine its just me!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...and thanks for dropping by..
