OK so its been a bit of a rough old week here in the 'Suzie Sews' household, we are now at the better end of the week...its the WEEKEND!!! Yesterday I was contemplating taking the 'patient' off school as he seemed really out of sorts...then I heard him playing with his little brother so I reluctantly had to take him to school. I had so many plans for our week at home if his operation had happened...I had craft plans coming out of my ears, a little light gardening...planting seeds etc...and some time on my sewing machine together....Still I am sure we will kick our shoes off over the weekend and get down to some serious creative family time together... Remember these...I ran out of stuffing? Well after a little shopping trip I bought a HUGE bag of stuffing and whilst I was sad to send my children off to school it did mean a little sewing time for Mommy...So I sat with my IPOD and whilst listening to the Creative Mom podcast (another Mom with two little chaps mad on Pokemon) I finished off two of my pin cushions using up my scraps of fabric...The best part of this was going through my button collection looking for the right buttons...believe me I have a lot of buttons!!!
Later in the day after I had been to the local pool for a swim I got to work on a little order which involved going through my fabric stash, I found a whole pile of fabric I had been planning to use, it was some fabric I had been sent by a fellow blogger, so I sat for a couple of hours and made a pile of tissue covers. I made some of these at Christmas for gifts and thought no more of them...I met up with a friend last week and she was using her tissue case I had given here. I asked politely if she really uses it and the reply was 'Yes'. This is a friend that would tell me if she was not impressed so I trust her opinion. So I felt inspired to make a pile more with my funky fabric...all retro flowers and polka dots!!!
Anyway the sun is shining we have 'Simpson' clouds in the sky and once the children and I have finished decorating the cakes for a PTA event tonight we are hitting the garden...Have a great weekend and once again I thank you for your support this week, you guys are great!!!
