Where did that weekend go?

Well I can't believe it's Monday morning already! This was the first weekend for a while that Jacko hasn't come home form Uni. He went to visit his girlfriend at Leeds Uni instead. It was nice for change even though I missed him to be able to do just what we wanted. Here are a few pictures of what I got up to.

Saturday saw me doing a spot of cooking. I have been baking my own bread for a while now and I must say it's getting better. I find it cooks better in the Rayburn if I don't  put it in a loaf tin.
I needed to use up a lemon so made coconut and lemon cake.

Sunday I was a Karting widow (lovely).  had the day to myself so I got out the sewing machine and a way I went. It was great to be sewing again and I have lots of projects in mind, it's just the time I need to do them. This is a magazine bag made with the left over fabric from Sophie curtains. Think it need something other than the bow on the front.

Sorry about the quality of the photos but I was so excited about making something again and wanted to share it with you. I have lots of bunting cut out ready to sew so perhaps that will get finished this week sometime. Got to run, having my eyebrows waxed today, ouch! I always look like I've been n a fight when Mande's finished doing them. Do you wax or do you pluck?

What a Beautiful Day!

I know it's been a while but I just had to share these pictures with you. Spent the day out in the garden trying to make it look a bit respectable. It seems like months since we were able to potter about outside without being froze to death. Looks like I wasn't the only one making the most of the warmer weather!

I love white crocus, looks like he does too.

Will be back soon, feel like my mojo for sewing is coming back at last!
