Giveaway red velvet Clutch.

When I bought the fabric for the red velvet clutch, I bought 1/4 yard which means I had enough left over to make another one. This bag is the same as the one I wrote the tutorial for.So this one is now available for one lucky person to win. How to enter etc:

Mention this giveaway on your own blog, website, or forum (rules permitting). Leave a comment to say where you've made the mention. That's it! I will be drawing the winner on Monday 11th May. You will need to read the post on that day to see if you've won. If you have please contact me with your real name and address so I can send the bag. Good luck!

I'm back to sewing clothes for granddaughters today as the weather is grey and wet after a glorious sunny weekend.

Red Velvet Clutch Tutorial

I've made this cute red velvet clutch for my impending holiday. We're going on our first cruise - and we're cruising to Russia! This bag didn't take long to make and I've done a tutorial. Very easy pattern. Go on have a go. The tutorial is a PDF document. If you need it in word drop me an email.

My little granddaughter Bethany had a lovely time hunting for Easter eggs on Easter Sunday. Jessie was really hoping that she'd share!

I've finished a dress for one of my grand daughters. It has little cats on a white background and I dressed it up with ric-rac and braid. I've made cute matching trousers. We just need some warmer weather now!

My girls at home

Yippee! Picked up my chickens yesterday. They come from a farm near me and have been raised in a barn so they are pretty timid about being outside and keep congregating behind their house. They are "point of lay" (not little chicks) I guess about 16 weeks old. They're very pretty. Expect the odd reference to them in future posts. I got 5 altogether and if they are good layers I can expect 30-35 eggs a week. Enough for me, my friends and relatives!A little while ago I did a post on egg cosies. Well with Easter nearly here I thought I'd do a link to that tutorial so you can make some of these. They make a great gift by themselves or added to a little china eggcup with an egg sized chocolate egg.
