Yay! Crafty things!

I have a couple of WIPs (works in progress). This one is almost done. It's a birth record for Baby Bean, my brother-in-law & gf's baby which is due at the end of Oct. It's not far off being finished. I have some buttons, ribbon and dowl to make it into a wall hanging. Then all I have to do is wait for the big day to fill in the name, date & weight, and a little something in pink or blue - depending on what flavour bean baba is.

I am using the same theme to make a card for my step-bro & his wife who are also expecting at the end of Oct. They know they are having a boy so that's all blues so far, but no where near as finished as this one so I'll post a pic of that later.

I have been to Fabrix in town this week and bought a meter each of some pretty strawberry and cupcake fabrics. I have also bought some tarten fat quaters. So now I have some bits to practice on, and I'm thinking about making a couple of small drawstring bags and drawer scenters as my first sewing machinr project. I'll post how it goes!

On a totally different note.... the diet is on hold again. I am constantly hungery and hovering around 13st 2lb anf 13st 6lb. Also Dad is over again this week so dieting will be hard enough. And I fancy doing some baking!!!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
