Mischievous Gossip and finishes.....


Now what can I say really .... that naughty Sandi is telling porkies, I don't hate mug rugs..... I just can't see the point of them ..... but the girls give me  a hard time now and again that I don't have one and I usually have my water bottle in a plastic bag ......so the real story is.......I bought this lovely fabric to make the "Hatched and Patched " Mug Bag, then thought  I really agree that I need a water bottle bag as a plastic bag is a bit slack.... yes it does have insul-bright in it so it should stay nice and cold...... I decided to make a mug rug to hush the girls up but now thinking about it..... I have given in to peer pressure......so this will be the one and only mug rug I make and no I don't want anymore.

These girls are so naughty but heaps of fun that's why I chose the saying on the mug rug and they are truly great friends to have..... love you girls.




Now onto something more sensible, we have been making this very cute pincushion which is a "Birdhouse" pattern and was a lot of fun to make.

I have just noticed that the mouse has only got 2 feet...... poor little fellow..... lol






This is our "Bevy of Beautiful Mouses"....... yes I do know that's not a word..... lol
but I love making up words.

Poor Teresa didn't have her pincushion on Tuesday as she has been without her sewing machine but if you pop over to her blog she has now finished it.


Food is always a big part of our days together but this all looks a bit healthy for us.....
yummie though.


That's it for now.

Our lovely Tuesday friend Norreen has joined the blog world after a few problems so if you could encourage her that would be wonderful.
