I've only had the pattern and handles for about 4 years and the bag body made for about 6 months all I had to do was sew them together! My first finish for OPAM this month.
We had a bit of excitement(not) here the other evening, my DD1 was out riding her horse along the grass verge of the road we live on, it was still very much light, she had all the safety gear on and a reflective jacket! Can you see where this is leading... Meanwhile I was all snuggled up on the couch with my dressing gown on and just settling into a good book when... I heard a screeching of tyres and then nothing... Well I don't think I've ever moved so fast I was out that gate in record time not sure what to expect... I don't think I breathed at all until I saw my daughter still intact and on her horse! The driver(a neighbour) who was also unhurt admitted to taking the corner far too fast, hit some gravel, looked up to see my daughter and panicked only missing her my a mere few meters, and ended up stopping part way through our fence and 2 meter's from a power pole! Praise the Lord, that no-one was hurt!
Last night my friend Catherine and I went out to Indian Zaika for tea before heading to Claires @ Cinnamon Lodge for a night of laughter and stitching and a little shopping*grin* Look what came home with me...
Mmm it's a Rosalie Quinlin design and the fabrics are sew yummy! I can't wait to start it.
This photo' doesn't show the true colours of the fabrics the white ones are actually a duck egg blue...
Just after our meal last night, something very random happened to us, we were taking a walk through the centre of town when this guy comes up to us and asks if we have children, I replied warily 'Um yep" Cool he says Would you like some Lego I am shifting(he points to a trailer)and don't want it anymore! "Um yep, sure that would be great! Thanks" So off we walk back to our cars, with a box of Lego worth about $100! I am pretty sure it wasn't stolen as he was genuinely shifting from an upstairs apartment, it has been used but it's in almost perfect condition. As I type this I have Lego covering most of my dining area/lounge, I think they are having fun!
