a few more snaps of whats been going on here, which apart from constant sewing is not much at all, but i wanted to show off my view, because every day when i wake up and wonder how the hell did i end up here (very long story i wont bore you with) all i need to do is look out of my window and i turn my frown upside down.. do ignore the ugly wires that cut across my view, but look, every morning its like my own private turner painting..

just a few snaps of whats caught my eye this last few days, i got this book at he local car boot sale for 50p, and i do believe that everything should have the word splendid, in it, its just a splendid word.. and inside was this book plate that i thought was quite appropriate what with all the news about bullying and retaliation that is all over blog world at the minute.. have you seen this ?.. some agree , some disapprove. i know who i was applauding...

meet my little nephew Zachary. hes 6 months old and already a future superstar, hes very naughty and does not seem to like sleep much... maybe its because hes too excited to play with his happy accidents toy that i made him, or too happy to dribble drool all over his new bib i made him... either way hes amazing and i wish i could see him and his sister the Izz monster more often...

i made these new quilts this week, well, i call them quilts but they are really padded little blankets/wraps/play mats/..erm, whatever you want to call them ?.. there is not much actual quilting on them, and i possibly broke lots of quilting rules along the way, but i love them, and they are super colourful and the fleece on the backs is soooo super soft..carry me home, my London stockist.. all the fabrics are scraps that i had never thrown away from all the dresses i make.. i knew i would find use for these bits one day, and they are such fun to make.. like a fabric jigsaw, putting the combinations together... I'm sure ill be making more..
