Mothers, leopards and feltyness

Hello bloggers.....Happy Mother's day to all the Mam's/Mum's/Mummy's and Mama's out there. (Especially mine **wave**)

I think I have decided that being at home doing what I jolly well please is way better than actually going to work :) (we all knew that).

Having days off work gives me a chance to catch up on all those things that get neglected on a normal working week. Some boring (house work) others (crafting) a delight.

So yesterday I spent most of the day finishing sanding the utility cupboard and then giving it 2 coats of paint. It looks fab, all ready for things to be put in the cupboards!! After all the cleaning up there was not really much of the day I spent the evening with a glass of wine and catching up on a bit of blog reading.

This is the other gift that I was telling you about the other day, its a blown glass Leopard. The markings and colours are so beautiful. Another amazing gift from the other half (what is he after I wonder???? Cynical woman alert!! ) :) No really, I'm lucky that he is so thoughtful. This will go on one of the shelves in my sewing room along side the chest/box he bought me.

And to finish my post with a bit of progress here is a photo of what I have been up to this morning. Nope, they're not brooches or embellishments......I'm hoping that they're going to be bag charms (if they turn out OK, that is). I'm in no rush to finish these as I have another 2 new projects whizzing round my head that I want to get the patterns drawn out tomorrow, so these will be sewn together at my leisure.
