In my defence most of the fabric bought was discounted…..

and I had projects in mind… for most of it….

But I still need more I think I have the equivalent of nesting but instead of collecting a huge amount of baby clothes and soft teddies I have been collecting fabric for non baby related sewing.

more bags all sewn up

I have finally finished work, well my last day was Friday and I feel like I have not stopped so lets get on with the catch up…

I made these bags about two weeks….

I also made a cosmetic bag but the zip keeps getting stuck where I got a bit too close to the zip when sewing but I still like it quirks and all

I really do need to say sorry again regarding the lighting in these photo’s but hey I now have another 5 weeks to brush up on my skills if the baby does not arrive before his due date that is.

Here is a sneak peek at what else I have been working on

sneak peek my oh so cute moment of the week was when my son declared he is going to marry me! I asked where he had heard the word “marry” and he said from a girl at nursery so I asked who she wanted to marry and he said “not me because I am marrying you” doesn’t your heart just melt or maybe that is my hormones on overdrive did I mention I cried at a disney film last week?!
