Quickie

I usually sit here at the beginning of the day and not the end of it. Its been such a busy day. Yet I still have more work to do, uniforms to press, lunches to make, article to write for a local magazine, dressing up outfit to design and some more cakes to decorate after another mass baking session with the children, they are on a cup cake frenzy! Its going to be a late one tonight...

So I make no excuse for a short posting, but I shall leave you with some more handbag love. I made this on a workshop about my sewing machine, I had no idea that I would actually make something I would like and use. I thought it was going to just be a course on 'if you press this this happens etc...' So I was pretty impressed I can tell you.
Its world book day on the 1st March and our little local school are having a dress up day, animal characters out of a book, my child wants to go as the mouse in Narnia! Mmmmm so after a bit of fabric shopping today, Oh that was hard work, NOT! I actually ended up buying a snuggly sofa throw. It is going to be a bit basic due to the lack of time I have have, but, I could not bring myself to buy an outfit, goes against the grain to much!
So I need to have the plan in mind before I go to bed as I will only have a short time tomorrow to put it together, I have thought about fury trousers, a sleeveless jacket slip (so he is not too hot) a pair of ears and a tail. Mmmm I wish I had more time I would love to run with this idea...

Nice bag and wouldn't be nice if we had 30 hours in the day - maybe not! We would just find more things to do.

You need a sword and a cape! Maybe if you found a jaunty hat with a feather, you could make plush ears and stitch them on and then you could have him wear flouncy pants tucked into boots and a vest and you could make him a tail and paint his face and then you wouldn't have to sew much. Reepicheep for the win!
