 Hi Everyone ,

It's my first time of taking part in the Friday night with Friends... I have been stalking for a while.. If anyone is wondering about what I am going on about  then click the link it sounds fun... it is hosted by the lovely Cheryll over at  GONE STITCHIN you take a couple of photos of what you are working on and share over at Cheryll's blog..

Well I must confess I am not an experienced at sewing at all it's a new hobby I have taken up about a year ago when I retired... but at this time I have returned to work part time and I work 19 hours a week and two days of my week is looking after my Gorgeous little Grandchildren and any time left after that lot I have a play at my sewing machine... Below is my first attempt at a jelly roll quilt... this fabric was much cheaper than the moda fabric for me to have a wee practice on.. a few photos below I have some jelly rolls by Moda which I hope to put together in the future... The photo of the complete jelly roll quilt you can see it has not been pressed as yet... hot of the sewing machine as they say... I have to complete it as a quilt and then bind it... now the word binding brings me out in a cold sweat... Yikes but good old you tube I'm sure will help me with that...

                                    My Moda Jelly Rolls

                                       This  Peter Rabbit fabric I am going to venture trying to make my                                              little Grand-daughter a summer dress  I made a very simple one for her last
                                  year and that turned out good with the help of you-tube...
Well after that it just leaves me to say, Thank you Cheryll for the lovely open invite for people to take part in this lovely Friday night with friends... I do work on Fridays but I will visit each and everyone of you all over the weekend... looking forward to meeting you all x x x May x

Here is what I've been up to this week....


I had great fun getting out my paint and crackle paint to do these small blocks for a new baby boy
 named Thomas my daughter asked me to make them for her friend... I made these for my own Grandchildren and they sit high on a shelf so the child can't touch them... only for decoration not toys...

 I felt good to have sticky fingers again I have not done much crafting since taking up sewing...
 Speaking of sewing I have finished my little embroidery piece I was working on the image I love and it's free over at  Jenny's  click on the side of my blog at Jennys wonderful peaceful blog The Stitchery club and it's in her shop.. enjoy...
 As you all know I loved my paper crafting  but I change my room to a sewing room last year well I came across these old vintage designs wooden stamps the top image in the below pic is the one I use on my Christmas tags each year
  these are two others  I have just got to decide which image to use on my Christmas cards this year,,
Well that's me done for this week ... I'm off to get my coffee to visit the worlds desks... Have fun x x

Thank you so much for your kind visits today.... Keep Safe x x x x

Thank you all so much for your kind visits and comments... well here we are again the day the major snoop takes place across the worlds crafty desks...  the brainchild of the lovely JULIA pop over and see how to join in and link up we would love to see you.

Well today I am just showing how the completed ( sewing part) of the stitchery piece I was working on looks like... I still have to frame it and bind it....I Hope to get that done over the weekend... This retirement malarkey of having more time is not true ladies & gents.... I need to return to work for a rest :):):) I've never been so busy !!!


 Now trying to decide what fabric to frame  with..... I choose the this one below
I wish to hang this on my crafty space door when finished....

Short and sweet this week just like the our boss Julia likes it...
