So much to do... little time.

I fear that I might be trying to spread myself a little too thinly. It's not enough that I love to knit. Nor even that I am having a go at embroidery again. No, I just had to let the A2F sale inspire me to play with my lovely newish Pfaff. Plans are for a little xmas sewing.

Oops, there might also be a few Anna Maria Horner prints up the back there - very reasonably priced, they were.

But before the xmas sewing starts, there was a UFO to tackle. I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with this one. It's the All Day Tote from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing. I've tried it once before, but a construction fault led to its untimely demise. This one should be sturdier.

I also need to do a little sewing for ma minette. Sadly when she comes to visit, there are no spare clothes at Nettie's for her. What sort of a nettie am I? This prototype is just for size, and will be duplicated in many snazzy fabrics once the sizing is right.

You see, she has started visiting a little more frequently - for some doses of culture.

Book group...

...and music appreciation.I have to admit, though, that I would appreciate some hints on how to get the Watermelon, watermelon, I like, you like, watermelon song out of my head. Justine Clarke has a lot to answer for.

I wasn't game to go to the A2F sale - I have already have more fabric than I know what to do with!

My nephew's favourite singalong song is "The K.K.K took my baby away" by The Ramones. He knows all the words and sings along with it. It's hilarious. I think my brother thinks it's better than the Wiggles and playschool (I'd have to agree!!)

I love that brown tulip fabric. What do you have planned for the others?

Hi! I got the winter sassy apron and I love it! Thanks so much! And my son and I love the cookie cutters-we've already been playing around with them. He especially loves the kangaroo. I love it!
