Woo Hoo!!!  Time to sew, sew, sew.  If only I had some fabric   Wink




The Goose is Getting Fat

Easter is behind us and it is now that time of year … the time when I get to remind Debbie that Christmas is coming.

I find this incredible fun.  Believe me when I say I was giggling like a school girl as I looked for an appropriate Christmas picture to accompany this post.

It is not often that I am left speechless, but it happened today.  I was sifting through pictures of cute Christmas decorations looking for inspiration for our group and I came across this …

Christmas Pickle

In all seriousness WHY???   Who on earth thought .. “I know I will design a festive pickle to hang on the Christmas tree”?

If only I knew someone who could knit little festive vegetables. (He He)

What’s the Buzz?


The air is filled with the buzz of the sewing machines and you can hear the sounds of laughter and chatting all around.  The kettle comes to the boil and in a ‘Mr Ben like fashion’ cakes simply appear. (I may have just given my age away there, but let’s gloss over that).

Each Tuesday brings a fresh, excited expectation of what new and wondrous  project Debbie will have in store . . . 

too busy sewing

There is something joyous about a busy craft room!!
