Happy post

Apologies for my tardiness in blogging this lovely post that came to me, the gods honest truth is that I started using it the moment I unwrapped it and it blended into my life so well it was like I always had it, then I kinda forgot I hadn't blogged it!

I was very fortunate in the recent Mouthy Stitches swap to have Susan as my swap mamma. She heard that my  'real' partner had been suffering really bad flooding and may not be able to sew me up a pouch. Not wanting me to miss out she so sweetly whizzed one up and sent it my way.

Then a few weeks ago a mystery parcel arrived from Australia. I am such a geek when it comes to international mail. Despite having some friends over I still got all excited, what could it be? I wasn't expecting anything. So I ripped her open and found this lovely inside



I love this little covered button and flower.


Fab label and details!


And all these lovely fabrics too! Look at those funky bunnies.

The pouch was made up by Keera who blogs over at Live-Love-Sew. You should go and pay her a visit. I am very pleased she was my partner!

Not much sewing here the last day or so, I scheduled a little housework and hoovering in yesterday and found myself ripping up the disgusting old brown carpet in the bathroom and painting the floor boards and walls white! Whoops! I did manage to finish this block off though


Now onto painting the hallway  stitching up September's birdie block and basting the Siblings Together quilt!

That it!! No more hoovering if you ditch the carpets! Genius :-) lol

Decorating over stitching?! Are you quite mad?! Although getting rid of the need to hoover is always a bonus...

I was doing some tidying up the other day and ended up rearranging the furniture in the lounge!

Sometimes you just have to!

Hope you get back to more sewing and your pouch and birdy look fantastic!
