Back again!


Its me! Again and so soon! Now is that a good thing or a bad thing..... hmmm??? I'll let you decide..... ;))

Now I thought I'd share a few pics with you. Over the weekend the OM and myself had a little 'don't know where we're going but we'll go anyway' trip. Basically I pointed the car up the M18 and drove. Eventually we came to the North Sea and so I thought it would be a good idea if we stopped! Anyway we were at Withernsea... oh my! It was.... how can I describe it? Er.... brown! Sorry to any Withernsea residents who may be reading! Please don't think the sky is blue, they're actually grey rain clouds! So we hopped back in the car - pointed it again and.....

went to Hornsea! It was slightly less brown! The OM took a quick pic of me (don't be scared!) Yes it was as breezy as it looks. The joy of an English summer, yes jeans, jumper and a coat!

Can I think of a nice thing about Hornsea?.... Well if you're ever there I can recommend the seafront chippy - the fish and chips are wonderful! Made the trip worthwhile. They did make the car pong a bit but hey ho. Totally delicious!

So a little make to share with you. While I was on my jollies I happened, by accident, to acquire a couple of quilting magazines. Now they have some rather fabby makes in them, other than quilts.

One of them being a needle case.....

So.... taaaa daaaaaaaaaa! The needle case! Its actually easier than the instructions! I have to say they weren't worded terribly well, unless..... unless I'm thicker than I think I am that is..... well anyway its a good make for fabric scraps. The strips on the front are made from pieces 1" x 5" so with seam allowances they're 1/2" wide! Its really dinky.

The front.....

The back....

The inside, the needle 'holder' bits are felt

Its even got a pocket on the inside for...'stuff'

So that's my latest little make. Now I'm acquiring fabric and saving all the bits I reckon I can make one or two more!
