I started blogging at the very end of December, after being tempted lurred inspired by my good friend Sarah of Sew Me.
Today is post no. 100!  Woohoo!  
Amazing, because I really don’t ever think I’ve got that much to say, nothing terribly interesting anyway (I can churn out shed loads of nonsense!).
I was hoping to have a giveaway to mark said achievement, however the particular item I’m planning to giveaway hasn’t arrived in the post yet!  Sorry, but I will hopefully be able to do the giveaway soon.
So you will have to make do with a round up of a crafty day spent with my kids yesterday.  
Hubbie and no.2 daughter were both away this weekend, so the house was unusually quiet!!
We started off in my sewing room (gone are the days when play dough and finger paints would entertain for hours!), where my youngest made a pincushion for her friend’s birthday …
The only part I played in this was the rotary cutting and hand sewing it closed!  She did everything else herself!
….while the big girl got all arty with fabric scraps and my soldering iron!
Next, the ‘baby’ wanted a go with said soldering iron (eek!) …………..
Melting off the top layer to get lots of texture!

Ta dah!
….while the big girl did something similar with water soluble fabric.
Then we moved downstairs to the dining room table and got felting!  Great fun!

The ‘baby’s’ works – I suggested some stitching over them but she likes them as is!

The Big Girl’s felted beads – part of her GCSE Art & Textile module.
As for me, I was hoping for a sneaky nap yesterday afternoon –
no chance!
I got a hanging sleeve put on to my Eye Spy Quilt and No.3 daughter is delighted to now be displaying it in the perfectly sized recess above her bed!

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with …………… T!
She’s looking forward to many games of Eye Spy at bedtime!

Hope you all had a creative weekend!
