Yesterday the good fortune continued with DJ having another nice long nap. So I got all excited while the sewing machine was still out & picked up this blanket. Well it wasn't a blanket then but it is now. I bought this softest fleece before DJ was born & had bought some yellow satin ribbon to put on around the edge. I had pins in it all over & it's been sitting there for about 5 months waiting for me to sew it on. Well I did - rather badly but it's on! It's still the softest squishiest fleece I ever did meet & will make a cosy blanket for any of us! lol
After sewing that & taking out the mammoth pile of pins I had no where to put them! Bother! So next stop was the box in the cupboard that had the blue turtle in it. I had cut out this turtle probably about 18 months ago when I made BJ's & another for my sister. But my poor pin turtle got left at the time. So that was a bonus as in no time at all I had him all sewn up & totally pinned up. Woohoo! I did enjoy that little sewing marathon yesterday! I wonder when I will ever get a chance to do so much in a day again.
This morning I spent helping my mum with her sale at the shop she has finally sold. Yay! So the next couple of weeks will be a bit tied up with extra time spent helping her do clean up & packing & moving I guess.
This afternoon however we have had a lovely day in the garden having a picnic. BJ does so enjoy a picnic. It was a good time to be silly & play & enjoy the summer .
Fairy Bread anyone? A quick emergency picnic snack which was obviously enjoyed by BJ.
A bit of bike riding around the garden is always in order.
Shhhh... I don't think you are allowed to dink anyone really so don't tell....
Ooops... & no helmuts! Love the Weekend! Hope yours is just as sunny, funny & happy!
