well, dry at the moment

but not holding out much hope!
I made a new cover for the garden swing 7 weeks ago but I have still not been able to paint it first with all the downpours........ I don't suppose it matters as it has never been dry enough to sit out lol........
I am showing you the bags which I made for my friends for their birthdays........It was very difficult to get a good picture of them, I hope they have enough money to shop and be able to use them hehehehe........... if not, they can be used as peg bags lol...


They have a square bottom which is ideal for cake boxes (yum) bread or eggs and fasten at the top with 4 buttons, I have machine embroidered around the top.



Seeing as I have been up since 6am (unusual for me)to make an anniversary card that HAS to be posted today, I had better get a move on! I have had three cups of coffee and wasted TWO hours on the computer!! No shower yet and still not dressed!

Wherever you are... I really hope the storms are not affecting you. Stay dry, warm and safe

Hugs Tilly x
