I am using large hexies and a Red Brolly drawing for stitching in the center of the hexies.

This dessert is Spicy Apple Pudding its a self saucing dessert and was very nice i doubled the recipe as i had a large tin of apples,if anyone would like the recipe ,please let me know in the comments.

FNWF& Woofa project

All i got done for FNWF was to cut out all the pieces for the jewelry keeper,which now its ready to start sewing,i wasnt feeling a 100% with my breathing we had strong winds yesterday so i think it was something in the air.
To see what the other ladies got up to go here and a big thankyou to my buddy Chez for hosting this fun stitchalong.

I was lucky enough to win this lovely pattern on Ida's Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade.

I caught hubby out in the shed making our youngest daughter a sink to go out into there veggie garden ,hmm he is suppose to be resting.

I have chopped and changed my Woofa projects for this month and i have finally decided to finish this xmas stocking off,as it has been sitting around with the stitching finished for a few years,so it will be good to tick this one of the list too.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

WOOFA Project for June

This is my WOOFA project that i decided to work on for the month of June,the fabric has been cut out for years and everything was bundled into a box and forgotten about.

I enjoyed doing the stitcheries.

I am so glad that this sewing carryall is now finally finished

Its a cute bag and quite a bit of time was spent on making this .

Inside it has a needlebook and a scissor keeper and a little bag to hold bits and pieces. This will be for one of my friends for xmas ,her favourite colour is yellow.

This was a lovely pattern out of Browyn Hayes's book Flowerbed.
A big thankyou to Chez for encouraging me to get my WOOFA (Working on or finishing a UFO ) finished its feels good to not have this hanging around in a box waiting to be finished.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Cheers Shez xx

Goth Cafe in a Cemetery

 Yesterday my friends and i went off to the Gatehouse Cafe which is a Goth Cafe which specializes in Malteses food.

I forgot to take a pic of my lunch but for sweets i had black scones with blackberry jam and cream and boy they were so fresh and yummy.

Anne Marie who owns the cafe collects Halloween snow globes.

Boy have a look at this beautiful retro mirror.

They sell beautiful jewellery there.

Anne Marie gave us a sample of a new tea,it was blue and then she squeezed a bit of lemon in it and it turned purple,i have forgotten the name of it but gee it was nice.

The food here was so nice

Chloe our waitress and Anne Marie.

Looking down from the 2nd storey at all the lovely flowers that they sell for people to pop on loved ones graves.

I loved this snow dome full of flying bats.

This beautiful black lace was over the windows looking out into the cemetery,i love the bats on them ,what a lovely cafe ,good food and good friends,we will be back there again soon.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.
