Hi all,
well today I decided that after the housework I would actually do some sewing.....guess what I am....yeah I know I'm on the 'puter but I'm sewing in between things loading.....(very slow today, I guess there are lots of kids on cos of the school hols here).....

And just been cruising around on the net and went to Sue's where we have our next Angel Stitchers free pattern, so cute, well done Sue!

Here is a peek at the next item for my swap partner....

Can you guess what it is?????

That's it, back to the sewing...

The Next Freebie Pattern.

Hi all,
been a little slack posting.....just working and caught up in doing all the necessary things, like cooking and cleaning!!!!!
Hope everyone has a had a look at Lynette's to see what she has surprised us with, also at Helen's.
So cute, this is on the list for the swap partner I thinkee.

Hopefully there will be some sewing this weekend. And the kids are now on holidays, so there will be some lovely time spent with them. I'm thinking maybe the movies or if the weather is kind a picnic!
