Chinese New Year with the neighbours

Well, it's been another manic weekend. Thanks very much Mad Bad Sarah and Big Stu for a really lovely evening. Wonderful food and particularly great company (I concur with Rachel that we are truly blessed to have such lovely neighbours! ). Dr Green has met his match with usually Laid-Back Ad's scary ultra-competitiveness... very funny.

Fabulous food, lots of wine and all finished off with the obligatory Singstar session. The perfect evening. Just look at our beautiful gaggle of girls all dressed up.

pretty pictures...

Here's what I've been making this week. I'm trying to create some more stock for the website and we'd also like to do some more fairs this spring/summer.
I've had soooo much fun selecting the fabric for this pair of pictures (the other one is a castle in similar colours) that I also produced a couple of smaller train pictures in lovely navy, red and yellow ginghams. They'll be on the website soon.

Dr Green's working from home today..

.. so I'm steering clear of the sewing machine and pretending to do stuff in the kitchen. As long as the extractor fan's on and there's clinking of pans, he's none the wiser!!

Made some lovely little pictures yesterday out of a few scraps of fabric. Will pop some piccies on tomorrow (Dr Green's back at work!!).

I'm a bloggin'!!!

Well, I'll blame this on my mad bad neighbour (Sarah Loves Cats) who's been happily blogging for the past month or so. She's right though, I definitely need a distraction from housework (kids'll trash the place when they get home anyway), baking (I'm back on the diet AGAIN) and trying to personally prop up the UK economy with mindless retail therapy.

So, keep your eyes peeled. Anything could happen!!!
