Married to Tony mother to 2 children Lucas 23, Gemma 26 & her boyfriend Sean. Carer for 2 crazy Jack Russells. I'm dyslexic so excuse any mistakes.
The Stitching Room is where I spend my time playing with Clarice (my camera) and Bernie (my sewing machine). Come on in and see what I'm up to.
Remember my last post well Lucas went to bed one night this week saying "not another bag mum"
Gemma has a few weekends away coming up and she wanted a bag that she can carry on as hand luggage. I should have taken a photo with the zip open it is really roomy with a zip pocket inside.
The pattern came from this book if you are after a good bag making book I recommend this one. Lorraine has them in stock at the moment. It has patterns but is full of helpfull hints and lots of pictures.
Now for something not baggy......Lucas and his mates went to a fancy dress last night here they are before they left. Lucas went as Captain Jack Sparrow. I dyed some wool and made his dreadlocks added some beads etc. I skin glued 2 pieces to his chin so I thought we did quite well. I thought Captain America was fantastic however he thought he would need a catheter as going for a pee was a marathon effort. Not good when you are a 21 year old male out for a night on the beers LOL. You may be wondering why Nick is laying with a carpet over him????? he went as Princess Jasmin's flying carpet. His girlfriend went as Princess Jasmine.
I made a quilt for Lucas just before we went away so as the weather was quite nice this morning I finally got to take some photos of it. I should be hung the other way but there were bees in that Wisteria.
The label. Lucas' room is across from my sewing room and when he goes to bed and I am sewing he always pops in to say good night. I seem to make a lot of bags and when he asks me what I am making he always says "It's not another bag is it?" hence the label.
Finally some nice weather and after some great winter rain things are blooming.
This white iris has been covered in flower sadly they don't last long.
I love this shade of purple.
I think the rain has been good for the Bluebells I haven't had any in the garden for a few years.
