A sewing corner

every time I want to sew I have to lug out my sewing machine from under the cabinate and then pull the coffee table out from in front of my sewing shelves just so I can get to my supplies and to be honest by the time I have mustered up the energy to creat the enthusiasm has wained

So...............I have earmarked a little corner of my family room that could be my little sewing corner and now I just need a little inspiration to make it happen

A few ideas to be starting this space!!


A sweet treat for a tired dress

I stumbled upon this little dress in our local charity shop,its never been worn but it looked like it had a little something missing

I decided to make my little cupcake a cupcake dress and hunted through my stash of fabrics and found just the right colours

Now thats better!!

Lucy was in this dress all of 10 seconds before she had gotten it dirty and not even long enough to get a photo in but trust me she looked super cute

The boy did good.......again

I am super super excited,so much so its deemed worthy of a blog entry! 
 My Andrew returned home last night with the best present

No not a lady wearing stockings riding a bike!!

Just the bike.........thankfully!!

I am now the proud owner of a 1940s/50s vintage Raleigh cycle and I am just so excited and thoughts of this...........

And blinging up my basket

its sending me in to frenzy of delight

I guess I never got this excited about a bike scince I was 10 on christmas day but its good and I have just another reason to love my Andrew even more

Happy fathers day Andrew

 Thankyou to the daddy for always being there for us

Andrew is always the stable one in this house,he is like a combination of all the best  bits of all of us all rolled in to one, he is sesitive like Lucy,funny like Megan,trustworthy like me and laid back like Daniel but he doesnt have any of our bad bits,he grounds me and gives me such stability
He is the solid place at the centre of my universe and we love him so

We want to give him best daddy award

Its a cake walk in the park

 I have always enjoyed baking and of course eating my creations so it was no problem to bake a batch to take along to my friends new Knit and natter group (we are thinking of changing the name just a natter group as not much knitting is going on) ........but thats another story!!

I took some cupcakes and we all enjoyed a nibble and a natter but I had not realised just how much they had enjoyed them as our next meeting I had two orders fro my cupcakes.
#The first was a 40th birthday probs

The second was a wedding !!! ohhh pressure!!

A wedding cupcake must be perfect and I have stressed the fact that my cakes may taste good but to look at they lack a little flair
And so I need to practice and I am afraid I am going to become a cake bore and be posting lots of pictures of new creations

Here are my first

And just a little peak at my knitting
Its a work in progress and might just get finished some time before Lucy grows out of it
