Do not disturb....

D'oh too late! :p

Every thing is in a not quite finished state! Claires Corset,

still needs the bone channels and bones put in and the edging finished.

My 2nd attempt at the sew-along T-shirt is also "not quite done!" But like the good old British Rail... I'm getting there :p

Give me something to Blog about!

So...I made the T-shirt for the Sew-along...and I will post pictures when I can get Jas to take them...but it didn't go so well! I'm slightly bigger than average in the bust area...(and the tummy!) But I'm not sure my bust-line has ever been on the same line as my armpits! So I tried to be clever (not a good look for me :p) I put the arm curve on my actual bust-line! Genius I thought! I made a bat wing top! :p
I found the sleeves weren't as scary as I thought they would be, and I made the back and front too low, I also didn't make it long enough to warrant the full hip width, so it looks like a curtsey. All in all It wasn't that bad and it is the house :p

I'm sat here having told my kids that I would take them to Toy'r'Us and MacDonald, and I'm still waiting! Ty told me to go make myself a coffee!!!! Who are these kids??? I'm hungry :)

Why is it so hard to think of a title?

I figured it was time for a catch up...

Firstly a big YAY to Elena who won the corset!

I maybe should explain, My wonderful friend Siobhan had a Shabang in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research in loving memory of Malcom Ferguson, her late husband! Lots of bands and businesses and friends donated something towards this worthy cause and in doing so Siobhan has so far raised over £900! See I told you she was Wonderful!!

Also I have been pattern shopping :)

I have 2 big bags of beans in my one and only storagey space so I HAD to buy this pattern so now Geekboy has this

Unfortunatly this happened!

Now I'm subjected to "Mummy have you made my bean bag yet?" and "Mummy it WILL be pink wont it!"

So to show her that I hadden't forgoten her I bought a Kitschy Coo Pattern, This one in fact :) and how cool are they?!?

And look, No builders bum!! Finally something that will cover and stay on her arse!

That's it for now I think... all caught up :)

I have finished Linzis corset... But I didn't get any photos. You'll just have to take my word for it, it looked fab!

I haven't done all that much, kids have been off school, I only get 10hrs a week to myself but its amazing how much you miss that time when it's gone! I feel like I spend my days chasing tornadoes and only if I'm lucky they go in the same direction!

We went and saw Nanny and Grandad to day and I had been sent a cupcake cook book by Jas' Aunt Sally :) It's very cool and I can't wait to try some of the recipes out!
