Been Busy

Sorry i have been MIA my dad is very ill so there has been lots of family get togethers sorting things out and also a visit to the cemetery for dad to  pick a plot for him and mum,so it has been a very emotional time for us all.

I made this cute little bag designed by Fee 

Also for my birthday last month i shouted myself some lovely tilda fabric and i think a few others sneaked in there as well,not sure how that happened lol.

I was also lucky enough to win some tilda fabric and trim on Fee's tilda lovers FB page

I have been busy making items for friends birthdays

I made a potporri lavender sachet to go with these two covered coathangers for my friend Robyn.

I have also taken up lawn bowls with my brother Bill.

Here we are having a practice as i have no idea how to play bowls or the rules lol,but it will help me to keep fit.

Hope you are all well,take care.
cheers Sheryl xx

WOOFA Challenge

My WOOFA project for the month of September was to finish my xmas cushion,thankyou Chez for hosting Woofa to see what the other ladies got up to go here.

But i started having problems with the sewing machine,i did get the alphabet all ironed on and some letters blanket stitched around and then this happened.


I have pulled the machine apart and put in a new needle and its still happening so i will have alook at the machine again today.

My brother and his Fiance and my sister came up and we walked some of the rail trail ,it was a lovely day ,lol,just before we copped all the snow. Here they are taking a cheeky shoot un be knowns to me ,i cant see anything on my phone unless i have my glasses on now lol.

We spotted this huge spider shuttling across the track as we walk and believe me it was big,it started heading towards me and i ran ,lol,i am a bit scared of big spiders,lol.

My sister and i have started a week of going all plant food under a lovely young dietitian that is a friend of my sister's,and so far its great i have lost .7kgms in to days and i am feeling good,i also stopped the pepsi max,we are both enjoying this eating lifestyle.

Hope you all have a wonderful day ,i am off with friends for a craft day tomorrow all social distancing of course.

OMG things you see when Walking & Gifts

How wonderful is this beautiful pouch that my buddy Fiona sent me for my birthday and arent those words so true.

OMG i nearly wet my pants Fiona had also added in a tilda purse kit using the new tilda Maple farm fabrics,oh i cant wait to start this project,thankyou so much my beautiful friend

And my buddy Chez sent this wonderful parcel ,those awesome caravan teatowels are going straight out into the van,thankyou so much Chez for all my thoughtful gifts.

And i was also spoilt by my friend Ondrea these fabrics are gorgeous in fact i have already used the aqua one,thankyou so much Ondrea,as you can see i was so totally spoilt by my blogging buddies,i am very grateful for these special friendships.

I also made a tilda candlemat.

This was one of the projects for the 12 days of xmas ,hosted by the lovely Fee on tilda lovers FB page.

I am so glad to be back walking,i feel so much better when i can ,last week we spotted this blue tongue lizard on the Skipton Rail Trail he was basking in the sun and didnt move an inch while we were walking past.

We couldnt believe our eyes when we came across a naked gnome glued to the fence post lol,close your eyes girls lol.

Then as we crossed the road there was another one they were facing one another ,one was waving and the other one was flashing,lol,it sure gave us some laughs ,two days later we were walking the trail again and someone had smashed them,what a shame as it made everyone who passed them laugh,oh well i wonder what we will see today.

I have also been good this month Chez working on my WOOFA project.

Hope your day is a good one and i hope you are all safe and well.
