More good things

It's been cold all day, you get home and it's dark and cold, you have to get dinner, you had to leave the bag WITH dinner at the supermarket because you had no money left.....you get it, the best surprise when I opened it up-

A PARLIAMENT OF OWLS!

with a lovely bunch of toadstools! And 3 extra special ones for my little one. Actually the extra toadstools were a bonus for me too- she did try and wangle the whole lot, but I ended that discussion quick smart!

They are all different, with cute little personalities, Manda, you're amazing!
They are resting on another thing I won, from here. Don't they look great together?

I'll show you what I've swapped with Manda when she gets it, don't want to spoil the surprise!
Also, here are some finished Sewjourn items form the weekend. This is the Carry All, which I originally made at the bag course, then didn't like the one I've made, now I love this one.


I lined in black and white, did a denim divider pocket and a compartment pocket. I still avoided the zip purse, don't know why, they are really easy, I just never zip them up, so don't waste time adding them in!


Noodlehead gave me (and you too!) this great tutorial, super easy, and there is a flickr group too! She'll even link to you if you buy the pattern and sell them, I think I'll have too much fun giving them away, they are dead easy!

Phew, off to finish more!
PS Eggs and soup were so much yummier with the owls to look at, don't worry, I won't starve haha

I got some gorgeous flower pins in the mail from Amanda today too. They're so cute!
Sorry to hear you had a bummer of a day.

Way cute pins - glad you have a pretty pincushion to keep them in.

Loving that bag in all its glorious colour.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hey, the Carry All turned out great :) I love the parliament of owls - they would definitely brighten up a gloomy day. Hope the weekend is kind to you.

Ugh! I know what it's like to see "declined" come up on the atm...not nice!
Love the bag though, and those owls are too cute!
