bit of sewing

little wallet found here was really easy to put together it is just the right size to take passports and all the bits you need when you travel i think i would make it a tad (not much though) bigger if i do it again .

this is me doing my zip end this is the best i have ever done them

my charm pack ,think i like most of these fabrics particularly the one on the top and the others like it !!

i have finished yet another zippy something so small is giving me grief ,make one then make another and another think i will be ready to do another tomorrow ,i love this last one with the bunting on and i have put a initial on the back too if i dont send it i will have to find someone with that initial !!! :)))))

scrappy zippies

i bought a charm pack of echo it has 20 charms in it so i thought i would get on with some practice for   turned out really cute but not big enough for my phone
but i will use it even for change !!

then i made a panel curtain for the kitchen of the chilie fabric from ben i like it as i also have chilie lights on one of my cupboards

now just to let you know i have lost 4 1/4 lb this week i have updated my ticker ,i think i might have gone over board with how much i want to lose think i would be a size 8 at the end of it i am size16 now all these sizes are british sizes !! anyhow i am quite pleased with my progress so far see what next wednesday brings !!  Posted by Picasa

bought this last week from
only to find out that you really need a speicial ruler for cutting ................if you are confident no but i dont want to ruin it from the start so sent off for the ruler and guess what ........................out of stock but they didnt say that as i was ordering only when i checked up to find out where it was as it seemed i could get zips from quicker than an order from sussex !!!!!!
