Pure Bliss

One of the most beautiful things in the world to me is the sight of the bloke and the daughter playing together

Ahoy matey!

Faith and I are slowly getting back into our normal routine of cleaning, washing (oh how I miss being on holiday) and playing.  Because she was so good sitting in the trolley at the supermarket (very unusual), I got her a peppa pig magazine.  She looked so gorgeous wearing the free gift from it, it made my day.

I love Wight

It was the Stuart's 30th last Friday so I took him on holiday to a secret location (I say I took him but it was him who paid for it - it still counts if I book everything though, right?!)

After a 4 hour car journey it wasn't until we got to the ferry port with 'Wightlink' emblazoned everywhere that he cottoned onto the fact that we were going to the Isle of Wight.

I'd never been and it was the first holiday we'd had just the three of us and we had the most fantastic time.

I'm finished!

I was determined to have my Minoru coat from finished in time for my holiday and after a few very late nights I did it!  I think this is the first thing I've made that I haven't hidden away as soon as I finish it.

The bloke's decided I'm making something similar for him but a bit more manly.  I, on the other hand, am not so sure - sewing for myself is fine because only I have to live with all the mistakes, but I don't think I'd feel right letting someone else have a garment that wasn't quite right.  Besides, its not so much fun making something you're not going to get to wear is it?

Anyway, here it is...

If at first you don't succeed...

After one nervous and sporodic attempt at blogging, which ultimately proved too much for me, and much badgering from my sister, I have decided that now is the time to try again.

I have an amazing daughter who is teaching me to see the beauty in everything, a fiance who gives me time away from home to pursue dreams of studying and crafting, and a big sister who is helping me get to grips with my new camera. So I should be able to find things to write about this time!

Wish me luck...
