Giveaway Sunday

The lovely Susan is having a giveaway over here for no reason other than she got sent some fabric as recompense!  How generous is that

So, head on over and leave a comment: it's that easy, and you could win this fabulous fabric.

I would like to say thank you to everyone (I hope I have emailed you all back) for all the lovely comments that I have received over the weekend regarding my swap goodies and my September overview from lily's fresh sewing day.  I don't think I have ever had so many comments and it was great to 'meet' new people, so thank you all who took the time to comment

I have been busy today but not really with sewing.  I caught up with my studying this morning and got my assignment in.  I have finished respraying all my kitchen cabinets in this lovely sunshine: note to self, never do again.  And had such a blitz in the bathroom that I even unscrewed the very heavy shower screen and took it down for an amazing clean over!!

I did make this:

 Its a kind of hint to Beccy to stop leaving her sprays all over that place and put them in here instead!

I used this tutorial from Sew Mama Sew, which I have used before, Last time I followed it to the letter.  This time I made a few adjustments, like using fabric glue instead of iron on interfacing to put the heavy lining in - worked a treat by the way, and I also made it taller.  Anyway, Bex likes it, so thats what counts, and who knows, maybe her sprays will even get put in it!


  1. I need some of those for the girls things! And thanks for the shout out.

  2. Don't know how I missed your last post, but your swap goodies are gorgeous! Love the colours. That's a really practical wee basket - I would need quite a few for all my girls' bathroom things! Jxo

  3. oh this is great! I need one!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message
