Walter has come to live with me

Shez over at Enjoying Life is the most generous soul
I was lucky to be the recipient of a gift from Shez in her RAK
She has been doing a few of these surprise giveaways
So Meet Walter
He is sooooooooooo cute
I think he will stay hanging on my cupboard
Too cute to bring out only at Christmas
He is a Michelle Ridgway design
Thank you so much Shez
A lovely sunny day here I should be out in the garden and not playing here
Have come down with a head cold and feel lousy, so Iam being lazy

Nurses bags for FNSI

Patchwork and Stitching magazine are holding a charity drive and are asking readers to make little nurses bags for nurses in third world countries
So last night along with the lovely Wendy and friends I whipped up a few
I would make some more but am having trouble sourcing what the magazine calls twill tape and the lady at my local shop calls herringbone tape
I tried the internet with little success and it is really quite expensive at my shop
Probably not looking in the right place on the internet
Not real cluey at Internet shopping
Must be my lucky week because Iam to be the lucky recipient of one of the lovely random acts of kindness gifts from the lovely Shez and just heard from Lisa that Travelling treasures will be coming my way
Show you when they get here

Boy Oh Boy It's Cold

Cold enough to snow and been blowing a gale
Had planned to sew all day yesterday... an early start for my Friday night with friends hosted by the lovely Cheryll but the best laid plans and all that
We had trees over fences so had to do a bit of helping outside before I got to start
I managed to finish this coat hanger, at least I did something
My first grandson turned 21 on Wednesday
Cannot believe I have a grandson that old
Iam too young
The little boy belongs to a friend of my daughter
