A 2010 crafternoon

I have been remiss in not posting about a lovely (cr)afternoon spent with Bec and her daughter Sibby last week.

Bec and I shared in a super cheap fabric deal and we took the opportunity for a fabric hand-over and had a bit of a catch up!

I didn't manage to get any shots of the kids but here's a bit of what we got up to:

Bec gave me Ella a divine vintage book with the most awesome illustrations.

And she also gave me a vintage pillow case with the sweetest print on it.

We played with lots of Hama Beads

Ella did a bit of this:

while the bigger kids did a bit of this


and just as Bec and Sib were leaving (and having a nibble on some walnuts), Bec mentioned making walnut shell boats ... so Ella and I did that too

A lovely time had by all.
You can read about it at Bec's blog too!

Happy new year to all.

I hope you had a sparkly one!

Hi Andi,
I am trying to visit everyone who is going to SIT and say hello, and as you are 4th on the list - you can tell I haven't gotten too far!
I love the fabrics and colours you choose in your sewing, it is very similar to what I like, and we had the Hama beads out just the other day too.

Looking forward to saying hello in March!
