So sorry I have not been able to catch up with all your lovely blogs lately, due to having family stay with us for a while I haven't had chance to get on my computer.

Once I get a chance I will definitely do some posts & swing by to say hi to you all.

I had this bottle of perfume given to me as a gift, I love Marc Jacob's bottles they are so exquisite & have a flower as its lid, it's quite a sweet floral smelling perfume when sprayed  but as it goes into skin it softens & is quite nice.

Hope you all have a great week & look forward in catching up with you all soon.

The other day my daughter produced this picture to me & asked if I could make this out fit for a project that they are working on at school for a boat regatta, apparently they have all built boats out of card board boxes & are doing a race with them on land so the kid's are all in the boats but running with them.

My daughter & her friend are playing the roll of cheerleaders  so on Sunday I found out I had to make 2 costumes (phew) so off I ran to Spotlight to get all my supplies I needed as I was working Mon & Tue I could only make them in the evening so after 2 nights I finished.  HOORAY.

I should say we finished as my mother in law came to stay with us on Saturday for 5 weeks so she was a great help pinning, ironing & helping with other things, I said "you timed your visit just at the right time" hee.

The skirt is my favourite it turned out really well, go go girls have fun, they have sorted out a routine shame we cannot be there to see it, I didn't do the binding stripes on the top as I ran out of time, more notice next time please Soph!!  hee.

Happy Creating

Thought I would have a go at covering my bedroom lamp shades today to give them a bit of a lift as they looked so plain.

Fabric all cut spray ready be careful with that spray I thought my room was well ventilated but ended up having to go out side, then I didn't check the wind direction first hee.

 I was thinking what have I started?  If I work with the spray glue again I think a mask will be purchased. I entertained myself making them, thank god I didn't video it you would have had a laugh.

I am so pleased how they turned out the glue does hold well on the fabric as one of the shades I realised I had put the fabric on upside down as you can see by the run of the pattern that would have been wrong told ya I was having fun & games hee.

Happy Creating.
