Family


I have made a name badge for a fellow crafter for our retreat coming up,cant show the name as its all secret squirrels.
i was pleased with the cheshire cat of Alice in Wonderland,i embroidered the out line and then coloured him in with my fabric pencils.


I have been working on this xmas decoration,i have decided not to sell these at the markets while traveling,instead i will take and finish off the many quilts that i have sitting around.
So i think i will have a giveaway at some stage for the xmas deco's that i have already made.


On Sunday we had a lovely visit from my niece Kristy (my brother's daughter) and her boyfriend Chris whom we hadnt met before,it was so good to see them.


Our DD1's birthday tomorrow so while her inlaws were up for the weekend,we had a birthday tea at our daughter's place.


Family pic,her hubby was working,we had lovely roast chicken and a lovely fruit custard cake from the cheesecake shop,we had a fun time laughing and joking and telling stories of when Kel was younger.


Before i hurt my back i had started having a huge cleanout Konmarie style.
I have started putting things in these grey containers as the other containers i had werent very practical,so while doing this i am donating a lot of fabric and bits and pieces to my sister's childcare place.
There is stuff i have had for many years and havent touched so if i dont feel the love its gone and a lot of tools and things are going to the embroidery guild that i once belonged to.
It is a good feeling going through this as i dont sew like i used to.

My back is alot better and i can walk around straight now so thats a relief.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Cheers Sheryl xx

  2. Your grinning Cheshire Cat is fun. You always have beautiful times with your family, don't you. How wonderful you enjoy all these moments. It must be a very good feeling to be able to stand upright again. I hope your back improves more this week so that you can do more things. Take care♥

  3. Lovely dolls you have on the headline on the blog! So fun the embroidered cheshire cat is. It is nice to see pictures of your great family. It's nice to have the sewing room cleaned. Smart to give away what one does not use. I should also sort out fabrics that have been unused for many years. Good to hear that the back is better. Get well soon! :-)

  11. You have been having a lovely time with family. So good to do.
    Lovely work on the name badge. How far away is the retreat?
    Sounds like you have had a good think about your plans for travelling, too. Finishing quilts sound like a good idea.
    And well done getting back to your clean out. I think we need to make this a regular event. It is too easy to collect and keep many items.

  13. Glad your back is feeling a bit better now Shez, I pinched a nerve last week & it restricts so much of what we can do. It seems everyone is talking about the Kon Marie method & having declutters. I was so happy to declutter my sewing space & it feels much better ... yours will look great with your new containers Xx

  14. Sorry to hear you have put your back out. My shoulder is still not right . Taking its time in getting better so can only craft for short periods and coment on blogs. Have been watching a lot of You Tube which is only making me itching to get back to crafting properly. I see the .birthday hat got worn again. Hugs Mrs A. .

  15. Good news about yourback. Love the Cheshire Cat...my youngest looooves that character. I thought you arranged storage in your craft room not long ago? It is always goid having a cleanup. I got rid of a lot of fabric and yarns that I had no use for any more. Our tastes change so there is no use hanging on to stuff wevwill never use but others may like. Well done.

  16. Hi Shez, so glad you back is getting better.... it takes time doesn't it? Love the Cheshire cat... so clever and lovely ornie. There is a craft destash site on f/b if you were interested in selling a few online. Well done with the clean up.. those containers look great, I'm afraid I don't understand someone not feeling the love for fabric!!! hahahaha.... You will be a lot more focussed when it is all sorted and you can work on those quilts you want to get done...
