Some of my patterns

Onwards and onwards!

When WILL I learn to act my age? Seriously - I worked most of my life (had time off when the kids were little as there was no way I could work with young kids in those days) but even now in my dotage I'm still pushing myself to 'do' stuff!!!! Perhaps I should invest in another BC? Perhaps BC4? A fourth BC MAY keep me grounded and NOT setting myself constant targets. Any thoughts?

If I did I maybe able to stop this incessant 'need' to have an aim in life. I can't 'just' make one thing - I HAVE to make lots!!!!

I've still got this obsession with the bags made out of the Japanese prints. The first one (below) is a medium sized bag and it's gorgeous. The other pictures show a dark blue bag. Actually not 'bag' but bags!!! There is one large blue and a baby one too. I've fallen in love with 'baby' bags.  See those dragons?  Beware of dragons!!!!

Oh, Ann, there are still more to come!!!

Another sewing 'stint'

This time I've made these two. There is still a bit more fabric left with a LOT of one type which I'll show you another day. I maybe able to make three with that design.

More bags

Yes, I'm happily stuck in 'bag making mode' at the moment. 

These are lovely to make mainly because of the truly delightful Japanese style fabrics. They're stunning. They're also inspiring me to sew, sew, sew.

The sizes are variable according to the fabric I've got which makes it even more interesting. I have a 'cutting out' session, then a 'sewing session' and try to complete bag before starting on the next temptation. Here are two I made over the weekend.

Crinoline Lady


On Sunday I spent ages trying to get poor old BC3 to sort out the TIAS on the server and tidy stuff up on this blog too. You will see that I've removed the TIAS from the side of this blog and added just a simple link to the TIAS blog where all the recent games are now to be found. I've moved all the TIAS links to another part of the server to make it easier for next year's game - well, for me, anyway!!!

I've also finally got the Crinoline Lady sorted and on the site too. Here's the link

You will see that I've added Barbara and Andrea's additions to the lady - with their permission, obviously.  Here is the pictorial umbrella from Barbara too (below).

Feeling good

At the tender age of 103 I'm feeling good. 

NO, I'm teasing. Actually I'm talking about the 103rd TIAS lady who arrived from Bed in The Netherlands on Saturday. Here's the link along with a subtle hint to send in any that haven't been sent in yet!!!! 

Well, not so much a hint as a 'nag'!!!!

You may have noticed a slight change to the front of my blog - more tomorrow on that!!!
