*** Firstly, I would like to ask lovely folks of Blogland if anyone knows how Pam from Wales is? I have been away a while and I notice her last post was in June. Hoping all is well in her world xxx***
I have been indulging in my love of making things. I made this Luna Lapin last year, but she is sitting on a little mustardy yellow jumper I knit for my great niece and I made a little cardigan for Luna to keep her warm in the Autumn months! I also finally broke into a sweat and opened a batch of fat quarters from my stash and, shock horror, gasp, used them! Just some simple envelope back cushion covers but I am very pleased with them.
Today I am going to faff about with some embroidery on my machine. I already walked the dog and have hoovered through. Bluebell is snoozing for now so I am making the most of my LAST DAY OF FREEDOM. I never count the weekends. Its currently very windy - but nothing like it's going to be for the poor people of Florida. Hope the Hurricane fizzles out quickly. I have made a rice dish for tea called Cajun Dirty Rice! It tastes quite good and am looking forward to later on! I've been watching that Deep Water thing on ITV with Anna Friel set in the Lakes. It's ok I suppose but her face doesn't look right with her lips. Nobody on telly 'looks' right these days. I have made the most of my holidays and finished watching series 4 of Fear the Walking Dead. I bloomking love TWD and Fear - love it! I also watched Fleabag. I'm not sure I'd file it under the comedy category it is in but it was very very watchable and I did really enjoy it. Ive almost finished a book - might review it next time. Ah well, time marches on.
oo I made a new bag for work too.

Lovely handwork! Love the cushion covers in particular.ReplyDelete
I'm very pleased with them Joy! Inspired me to use some of my fabric stash up!Delete
Pam has been poorly, but she's much better now, then her lap top died, hope to see her back blogging soon. Love your bag.ReplyDelete
Aww hank you for this info xxx hopefully she'll be back soonDelete
Those cushions are to die for.....I love the fabric and also the puffin fabric.ReplyDelete
I am just starting a quilt after a few months of cross stitching which I have loved but I'm ready to do something different now for a while.
Love the cushions and your new bag. I think quite a few people have been thinking about Pam. Hope she's back soon.ReplyDelete
Thank you Janice xDelete
Lovely makes Rachel, I really like the Puffin bag. Can't believe we're at the end of the summer hols already. Tom doesn't go back until Wednesday but I expect lots of staff will be in Monday getting ready for the new year. Hope you and yours are all well. xxReplyDelete
How is Tom feeling about going back to school? Has he grown much? Is Madam looking forwards to going back to uni? XDelete
I’ve missed your blog posts, Rach! I love checking in here to hear your updates- the school ones always make me feel so wistful! Love Lisa (one of your favourite ever students xx)ReplyDelete
Awww we really should catch up - Did you go back today? XDelete
Nice to have you back, love the penguin bag!ReplyDelete
So pleased to hear that Pam is ok and thank you Poppypatchwork for telling us! As she was already poorly in her last posting and I heard she hadn't responded to another email enquiry I feared the worst!
Like minds Annabeth xxDelete
I've been wondering about Pam, too...I see she reads and deletes comments left....ReplyDelete
I love that bag! Pattern name and designer, please?? New puppy has been keeping me from doing much sewing..I have a stack of partly finished quilt tops that I want to get done and quilted!
It's a kit you can but from Fabrics at Fleetwood about £15 - I wish I'd waterproofed it first.Delete
Luna Lapin is gorgeous and I very much like her cardigan. She looks very cosy.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoyed your last day of freedom. I'm in denial but we've still some more fun to have before school begins for us on Wednesday. X
Thank you it'll soon be half term xDelete
I love Luna, so is so sweet and looks very smart in her new cardigan. I also really love your bag! I've made a bag with a similar pattern (possibly the same?) quite a few years ago now, but it is a nice roomy bag.ReplyDelete
I've been busy making 'Creative Critters' the last month while I haven't been overly well, and have been really enjoying them.
There's something about crafting that really soothes the soul x hope you are on the mend now xDelete
