Fighting fit

At last I feel like myself again!! Yipeeeeeee!

I am rubbish at being ill ha ha just purely because I refuse to actually admit that I am feeling under the weather and will try to carry on doing everything I think I should be doing. Most likely why I ended up so run down in the first place!!

Well that was my plan until my body had other ideas and I ended up vegged out on my bed for the whole of the week. Apart from watching the first and second series of Falling Skies (and starting on the third) I did sew a little, funnily enough it was things that I just hadn't gotten round to like sewing these gorgeous grey buttons on our mustard cushions. We bought them quite some time ago (ashamedly I think it was about 8 months ago) as a contrast to the grey wall we painted opposite the sofa (chimney breast wall) and I kept saying I will do them at the weekend. Ha ha how many times have I heard that before!!

Now I'm back to my usual self it feels fantastic. But I am still concious not to push myself too far in case it happens again. We're having a pretty slow paced weekend but still trying to pack lots in to fully enjoy the bank holiday weekend. Right I'm off to make a coffee and plan out what we're going to be doing today.

Have a fab weekend :D xx

If I were... make a bag for myself this is probably what it would look like. Although I didn't pick this fabric, my customer did, I love it!!!! Its a perfect combo for Summer.

To co-ordinate with the silvery grey flowers in the pattern of the main bag I chose a silver grey lining with a leaf pattern....

And now I have mastered the zippered pocket (as mentioned on my big To Do list) here is another, on the other side of the lining is a slip pocket perfect sizing for popping your mobile phone in.

 And hidden away inside the zippered pocket is a surprise everytime....this time turquoise polka dots!!

I'm really loving making these new style satchel bags and cant wait to make one for myself.......if I ever get round to it lol :D
