Firstly I just want to say sorry I've been away from blog land for so long, nearly 2 weeks I think. Ouch, too long sorry sorry sorry.
Since we have gone into peak at work and I started my new job I have been feeling unable to write when I get home, as I said before trolley full and overflowing.
But hopefully that has passed and I will be back on form from now on.
I have soo much to tell you, It has been a busy few days (11 to be exact).
So I went to the lovely seaside town of Felixstowe for a few days for Mum's birthday, lots of wine was consumed for the celebration, champagne breakfast with scrambled eggs & smoked salmon yummy, dinner out at a fab restaurant and family roast dinner! wow I think I put on a few pounds last weekend.
I also managed to fit in some shopping, firstly the wonderful Fabric8 shop, then the great little quilting shop that has opened up. Steadily building up my stash!! And got my fat quarters for the paper bag swap being held by Rachel at Contented.
I'm also very lucky to have a lovely Auntie who has a crafting business, as she sent me all her scraps from her last season on making.
She makes beautiful kitchen ranges, cafetiere covers, tea cosies, Aga towels just a few of her wonderful range.
The weather was wonderful, Mum & I spent a lovely sunny Sunday down at the seafront market which we topped off with a lunch of Ice cream at the Little Ice Cream Company. I had a Sunday of Candy Store and Black Cherry mmmmmmmmm, Mum had raspberry crumble in a cone.
So I'm home now and life goes on, I have had a few crafty moments.
I have had fun!!! making a cosmetic purse, a couple of attempts were needed. The Zipper did try and get the better of me but I persevered and I am quite proud of my attempt.
I have also made a passport cover which I may add to my craft range for when I either set up shop on Etsy or book my first craft fair.
Also made my second Hummingbird recipe Vanilla Cupcakes, I made 23 odd number I know not sure how I missed out the 24th but somehow I did, loving my new piping set.
Our pear tree has finally had enough and we had a slight fatality, Gav came home to find 2 branches snapped off they were really full with pears so I have been giving pears out to anyone who wants them, today I made pears in brandy which I have bottled for Christmas.
So my lovely blogging friends, sorry I've been away but I think I might be back now.
Have a lovely weekend, Oh and before I forget if your out and about you might want to pick up a copy of Novembers Easy Living as you get a lovely free tea towel with it.
Love Sophie xxxxx
