Happy Birthday

To my very good friend Mrs. J

I hope you have a very Happy Birthday today. X

I have been making  a cushion cover the past couple of nights…

I didn’t have a clue what to make for Mrs. J so I thought a picture, sewn into a cushion would be cool. Here’s a close up.

I have decided to to a tutorial on how to sew pictures just like our lioness above. I am no pro at this kind of thing, although I have made a few pictures like this in the past. I just make it up as I go along a lot of the time. You don’t have to be an artist to create one of these by the way! Come back soon to see how it was done. x

Hot water bottle button

Since I have had quite a few emails requesting a button in the side bar for the hot water bottle tutorial. I added one last night, which you will find on the right of the page. Hope it’s helpful even if it is nearly summer 😉

A special birthday and other things…

I need to get things back in order here. Now this was the last thing I was making…

Whooo hoooo! Done at last! You should take a look at all the talent in yougogirl’s flickr pool.

Many things have happened since I began it. Hubby has had his hernia operated on and most of my time has been spent nursing but not all of it. I have been studying for my maths exam, which is coming up soon. I have also been spending a lot of time with my little man who is growing up so quickly. I want to spend as much time as possible with him before he gets too big!

Going back ages now, my little fella made another snake. He named him rainbow snake. I often find him wrapped around little fella in the morning when he wakes up. It’s official-he’s snake mad!

The last picture was a bit dark and dingy looking sorry about the poor lighting!

So the snake mad theme was brought into the birthday cake for yesterday when my little fella was super six. Six years old-where has the time gone? (*sigh*)

A great time was had by all. Thanks to everybody for coming and bringing such lovely cards and presents. I will leave you with pictures of snakey cake for now.
