Sewing corner revisited...

Well hello! It is Friday, the weekend is knocking, and I am looking forward to some crafty time...hopefully! That is once the laundry pile has been conquered! I have had a good tidy of my sewing corner recently, and a few new additions too, so while it's in an orderly state I thought I'd share some pictures with you. I don't have a separate room for sewing and crafting, but a desk that hubby built a few years ago in the corner of our living room. As you can imagine the challenge here is to keep it relatively organized, as to not turn our main living space into a messy work room! One day, I would love a space of my own where I can create to my heart's content, without having to worry about the inevitable mess it creates. One day...But equally, it is good to be able to sit in the same room as the rest of the family, to still feel a sense of togetherness whilst taking the time to sew. So today, a few pictures of my ever evolving crafty space...

Stripped bare, ready to re-organize...
















































































A recent project...A gift for a friend...


























Hmmm...what's next?


























Here's to a weekend of creative pursuits!

Baby love...

Well, it has been a whirlwind of a weekend! Saturday was spent with some dear friends hosting a baby shower for two lovely ladies who are expecting. I thought I'd share some pictures with you, as it was such a wonderful occasion...

Mummy rosettes for the special ladies...






































Some hand-dyed baby onesies turned into bunting...I decided to give balloons a miss,opting for fabric scrap bunting and paper pom-poms as decorations instead...












































































A very rustic looking naked cake...'Two peas in a pod!' Okay, cake decorating is not my strong point, but it tasted good enough to eat! I made the sponge using Mary Berry's Victoria Sponge recipe, and for once my cake turned out edible! Thank you Mary!



A vintage inspired table setting...




Rose posies for the table...



Our guest of honor, cutting the cake...


It was a truly lovely, very girly afternoon, spent with some wonderful women! I am looking forward to meeting the little ones soon!

Blessings,

March...

Well, hello! Long time no see! And yes, I know it's my doing...again...I really don't mean to stay away for so long, but I haven't really felt that I had anything worth sharing on here for some time now. And truth be told, the things that were worth writing about, well, I was just too busy enjoying them to think to write about them! It has been a mixed bag, the last few weeks, and energy levels were at an all time low. This mainly due to a horrid tooth infection that sucked the life out of me! In amongst the clove oil, dental visits and tooth drilling, I have also celebrated my 39th birthday, had a wonderful weekend break away with the ladies from our church, started and finished some sewing projects and kept up with the day job and family commitments as usual. There has been other celebrations too...a dear friend's birthday and Easter, so life has been busy. So, I warn you...This is going to be a picture heavy post! I have so much too share! Go on, put the kettle on...

Easter snaps...

















































Birthday treats...





Looking back, regardless of the tough days, it has indeed been a lovely month of March. May the loveliness continue into April!
