Lots going on

I have finally finished stitching my five snowmen,i cant wait to start putting this table topper together,its a lovely design by Birdbrain designs called Snow Happens Table Runner. I stitched it in country garden threads 207 called Swamp Gum.

I had a go at making bread with my thermomix and it was a big hit with everyone,first time i have made bread and everyone loved it,and to go with the fresh bread i made curried pumpkin & sweet potato and coconut soup,oh it was so nice i could've licked out the bowl,lol.
 The older grandies came back yesterday with DD1 and they spent a few hrs mucking around outside,its so lovely watching them having so much fun.
Tomorrow i get the 3 littlest grandies for 3 days and this will be the first time away from home for little Murphy,he is a real mummies boy,but i am sure he will be okay as he was so good for me when i watched him at his house while his mum had a break away at a spa and yoga resort.
Hope you all have a wonderful day full of love and laughter.

Camp Stitchalot Bag

 I have finally worked out how to finish my camp stitchalot bag,the pattern was doing my head in trying to work out how to put it all together,lol,but i finally got there.
 It has 3 plastic sleeve pockets inside to put your projects in.
 It has a flap pocket on on side of the outside.

 Its quite a large bag measuring 14 1/2 " high and 21" wide,a great size for taking on a retreat or sewing day.
 And on the other outside it has 2 large pockets for putting in a cutting mat and rulers,i am so pleased with this bag and you can carry it over your shoulder.

Now its time to pick another person to send a random act of kindness to and i will get the random generator to select from 1-14 from this post here good luck everyone.

And i hope you all have a wonderful day .
