Spagetti Christmas?!?!? And in just 7 sleeps I will be…

Good morning….
How is everyone??
I’m enjoying my morning coffee , in the newly found coffee shop. (Caffe Fresco, Guild Square) It has become my regular coffee spot.. It used to be Starbucks over in foyleside, But I do love to see the world walk by and the occasional bit of sunshine… very occasional!! All that being said I will be back to said Starbucks in 36 days…. The gingerbread latte is back 🙂
Bringing my right to my Spaghetti Christmas Nicely don’t you think… Seamless!!!
I meant the PUN too!!!!
I have searched out all my Christmas fabric and notion’s… I think!! And will be posting a new album on My Handmadehappiness Facebook page..I can’t wait to get making, I have started a Christmas inspiration page board on my Pintrest page. I am so ready to get all Christmassy it’s unreal.. When I moved form my last house I forgot to get all the stuff out of the attic, This means Christmas from scratch. A handmade Christmas for us it is!!

Now for the ONLY 7 sleeps HUH…
DRUMROLL
DUM DUM DUM DUM!!!
I have signed up for a part time course, It’s called Garment Making It’s 1 day a week and I reckon you can always learn something new. It also gives me a bit of paperwork saying yes you can in fact sew!!! When I signed up for this, I also signed up for a part time Accountancy & Book-keeping (manual) course.. This starts in a couple of weeks..
I am sooo looking forward to getting started!! I have also started tutoring a friends daughter.. We are on our 3rd week and she’s loving it, So far we have made a pin cushion & a needle book this week we are making some Christmas bunting (Free with this months SEW magazine) And were making a start on our angel… I shall get photos up tonight.
Well tat’s it for me just now off to pick up the wee-est man in my life from nursery!!
Have a fantastic day
( I shall come back and put in the links after I have picked him up, I’m running late)

I’ve been beading!!

Well hello there peeps
How is everyone??
I am still settling in to my wee free hour in the morning… I feel like I’m missing a limb at the min!!! So weird not having a boy or 2 asking me for something!!
I am currently sitting in a newly found coffee shop not far from the boys school free WIFI and good coffee at a good ££.. It is rare in Derry to find somewhere to drink coffee (and alcohol) outside!! I am very happy indeed.
So today I wanted to catch you up on a sewing project, it has been a labour of love. Very time consuming but…. Very rewarding. I have never attempted to do beading before. So it was just a case of get a needle thread and see where the fabric spoke to me…
So here it is my WIP I think I have nailed it for this project… It gives a bit of pizazz. I have learnt that when using chermuse to use sew in interfacing though… But everything is a learning curve. That being said I still love the way it is turning out. I hope to have this finished this weekend and then I shall have my TADA moment..
Has anyone else attempted a beading project?? Any tips you would like to share?? I would love to hear them..
I hope you are all keeping well..
I look forward to blogging away my days now that I have my newly found freedom.. The mojo that seems to come and go has found me again…. So till the next post (crochet post next) Have a great day!!
