A Catch Up

I made this little bag for my daughter. I was trialing the pattern to put up onto my "Free Sewing Tutorials" page. Keep an eye out for this tutorial if you are interested. Im into quick and easy designs. Im always trying to work out shortcuts. This cute little drawstring bag is quick and easy.

I also want to share with you my Tilda Easter Swap goodies.

As I mentioned a couple of posts back I have a new laptop.. it is not the best at  uploading photos to blogger. It takes alot of time. So I have to find a better way.... anyhow... photos below

This are so cute.. made from a poly eggs and wrapped with vintage fabrics. The drawstring bag is made from vintage chenille... I love it... This were made for me by Sena from the USA...

Sena made me a Hare

So cute with wire in the ears.. just love here to bits.. Her dress is made from vintage fabric too.

I also had Ana Maria as my other swap partner

Ana Maria made me the most lovely bag and eggs... three hanging ones. With Tilda buttons on them.. just love these to bits
She was so kind and also sent me some fabrics and buttons

Love these too.... Thanks Ana Maria... and Sena for your kindness and going the extra mile.

I also forgot... I got some chocolate yum yum... well that is gone!! havnt photographed that..

My son's 4th birthday cake.
Spiderman was his request.
I havnt made the best job of the icing ... but it will do.. He loves it and that is the main thing

We got away for a few days last week. We camped at this lovely place we go to up at the Bay of Islands here in New Zealand
We had the most amazing weather.
It was pouring down with rain in Auckland and we had sunshine and no wind.
We had a fire in the evening and cooked our dinner on it.
It was great and we had a lovely time together... my hubby, me and our two youngest children

Happy sewing!
