Finally got round to sorting out my scrap drawer. I divided all of my scraps into bags of different colours.

See how nice?  I then thought I would some quilts with these scraps.
I made a blue one...

And I made a green one...

I know they are not perfect, but I just love how they look when they come together.

New Skirt

I love pockets in skirts. So when I saw a pattern in Burdastyle Magazine I had to try and make it.

I used the last of my denim for the pattern. In the magazine its a mini skirt, I added 5 inches to the length, cos I didn't want a mini.

I would say that the skirt is easy to make and the size is correct according to pattern. only problem is maybe denim wasn't the best choice. The pockets kind of stick out at the sides.

Will have to be put down as another step on the learning curve, maybe one day I'll make something that I just might wear.

Mazy on the sofa thought it was a great idea anyway.

Circle skirt & a Birthday

Circle skirts are just the best for twirling, the evidence is plain to see.

They are pretty easy to make, the only difficult part is the hemming. I used a nice seersucker cotton for this one.

Well another Birthday has come and gone, not mine. My little one turned nine on Sunday. I made a big chocolate fudge cake, and decorated it with marshmallow teeth.

The party was a big hit, just one thing to remember for next time. Fourteen 9 year old's, in a very small front room does not make for happy time. Rain stopped play....

I like dinasours, so I thought I would make a few. Here are the results.

I like the black and white one best. He has two different coloured eyes. Very scary indeed.

Achill Island

We spent last weekend here in Achill. Its on the West coast of Ireland. And it has to be one of the nicest beaches in the country.

There is a magical mountain, and a long sandy beach. Lots of surfers go there, cos it gets pretty windy. Mazy and Anna had fun running up and down the strand for 2 days....

Go there if you get the chance I guarantee you'd love it.
