Yep, I need to get out more!

Aaah Pinterest, you're making me tired, grumpy, happy, inspired and usually late.
I think we need to spend some time apart.
But you have such cool things.
I found the instructions for these here after finding the pic on Pinterest.
Made some with my girls and kept using the scrap paper to make teeny, tiny ones.
Yep, I need to get out more....

Good golly - I've made something!

It's been a while since I've posted pics of something that has been made by me.
Here are a couple of things that have been wrapped up and given away ....

A baby wrap for a nephew. (Technically made & delivered in May but forgot to share it with you)

 (mmm could have done with an iron before the pic...)

One of Nikki's bag for a lovely 11 year old.
I love this pattern - so easy and wise (can a pattern be wise?).  I love the tips and tricks in it. 
For girls like me who have learnt as we go (apart from Textiles class at High School .... SUCH a long time ago) these tips are fabulous!  
Sometimes you can hear my brain clunk as I read them and things fall into place.  

I've made a denim laptop/satchel bag with a lovely Prints Charming lining as this lovely girl still adores pink and loves to carry stuff with her.

I've also finished all of the prep costumes for the school concert which is tomorrow night (LOT's of excitement in our house).
I handed them to the teachers yesterday (17 dresses & hair ties and 16 vests) and didn't take any photos to show you - what a dufus!  Will try and get some tomorrow.

Hmm, what to do next  ??
Maybe finish Miss 2's quilt that was started in January - yep it has been neglected.
Now it's out there and I've dobbed myself in I'll have to finish it!

I also have another little project in the pipeline that I'll share with you soon.

Hope you're all having a lovely week, too.
