At the beginning of last week I got a great vision of what I wanted to make my scrappy swap partner for her little scrap inspired gift. But unfortunately, as excited as I was to make it, I wasn’t feeling up to making a start on it until a few days ago.
Talk about frustrating!
And the inside…
Actually I was just thinking that I can’t actually remember the last time I cut yardage for a project. So I really much remedy that pronto!!
Now I just need to pull some scraps out to send to her, purchase some local chocolate (that will be en route to the post office so it doesn’t get eaten 😉 ) and I’m ready to send.
On a completely other note, today was the day I was “supposed” to have a stall in a local fair for my business. But if you recall I recently changed my mind and decided I didn’t want to do markets this November after all.
Boy was that a great move and I’m soooooo glad I made that decision;
Check out the whether we had today…
The girls and I decided to adorn gumboots (wellies), rain coats and brave the weather because I made a promise before I knew what the weather was doing & therefore their expectations of going to the fair were set. (The nice way of saying I was being nagged senseless until we went!)
But in all honesty it’s the first time my girls have EVER walked around in the rain anyway so it was kind of a neat experience for them – it just doesn’t rain much here to warrant that kind of thing.
Walking around voluntarily in it for a couple of hours was one thing, but having a stall would have been quite another and I’m super glad for the decision I made.
We came home dripping wet at 3pm, got into our pyjamas and snuggled in my bed watching a movie on pay to view.
And that was our Saturday.
Pretty ordinary but quite lovely.
My lips are sealed Kat – I will not submit to interrogation by the quilt police. Your partner will be thrilled – we all love a bit of scrappy!
The pouch is just perfect and it looks like your day turned out to be wonderful too.

Lovely pouch, and lucky escape from (wo)manning a windy stall – perfect x

I think your pouch is super cute and I’m sure your partner would love it.
Loving the pouch! So totally wishing I was the recipient of it!
Sounds like a great day out…well minus the rain part of course….
Really lovely Kat, I wouldn’t want to part with it either.
You’ll just have to make yourself another pouch I had to laugh when you said the kids have never walked in rain before… I so badly wants to live where you live. Here it’s rains a lot, so ‘gummistøvler’ (wellies) are just part of the everyday gear.

Love the pouch and the quality time you are having with the girls. Snuggling with your children is good for the soul.
Super hexie pouch. It’s so pretty!
Fresh dough = one fantastic day. I want to play too!
Im glad you could make it to the fair! It was quite disheartening for the P&C to put in so much time and effort to organise such an event and to have it rain 2 years in a row! Fingers crossed next year is going to be gorgeous weather!
I love that pouch too!
