My new CK type fabric bag

Yesterday I decided to make myself a new bag. I had some CK type fabric to use for the outside and I used a green pillowcase for the fabric for the lining. I got the instuctions from a tutorial on the Shabbychic forum.



Then I made a Organising roll which holds all your items such as brush, purse , phone etc


I’m so pleased with myself.


My conservatory

My conservatory faces south and so can get very hot in the summer. When we first moved here in 2001 I put fabric over the ceiling but over time its got very dirty and faded. Thought  it would fall apart if washed. So I threw it and started to look out for some more fabric. I needed approx 12 metres and eventually I got some for only £10.15 on ebay. Here is the result:



My tarot card

You are The Moon

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Moon is a card of magic and mystery – when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.

The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

April swap from Mary

Today I have received my April swap from Mary [Poppins]. It’s absolutely fantastic . sv202673It all came wrapped in some lovely fabric, ribbon and with little tags with messages on. Really sorry about the photo but I had my camera set on the wrong setting.

sv202674I opened them all and took this photo still with camera on the wrong setting. I had a fabric bucket, pins, little needlecraft set, lavender smelling heart ,thimble, chocs[which I’m afraid I have already eaten – yummy they were too!!], tea towel, dusters, hm card, two Easter hanging ornaments and last but not least a wonderful lamb that I have decided to call Mary after Mary Poppins.

sv202681Here is a much better photo of Mary

sv202682And a clearer photo of all the other goodies minus the chocs.

Thank you so much Mary. I have been well and truly spoilt.
