Lovely Fridays and counting sleeps

Back in the workroom gain. It rained so I didn't feel guilty about playing.


Behold my latest purchase theese scrummy yummy fabrics from Fabric rehab which I came across while browsing on paper and string blog she does clearly warn you *warning* much money will be spent! and she wasn't wrong.


Other shopping I did. More buttons for the sweetie jar. (99p Morrisons ultimate bargain)


My fave shop Duttons for buttons. Well worth a visit if ever you come to Harrogate. Its so quirky and small but the staff are sooo helpful and friendly


I started on a cusion for my sons room. Worried it might be a bit girlie.



Finally I put the fire on because I was cold and spent the afternoon making this for my darling Neice who is about to go pop with excitement at being taken to Disneyland Paris next weekend. I have long had  a family reputation for deliberately and wontonly whipping children into a frenzy prior to big occasions. I regularly start to get my son thinking about Christmas just after he goes back to School in September!!!! Mind you My brother comes a close second at the whole excitement thing and will probably have done his bit too. You are allowed to count sleeps when there are 10 left. Minnie is to help the sleeps go quicker.

The pattern I used was one I got on etsy but modified. It ws orriginally to be a cupcake
