Fabulous Day

I went ot the Fabric Guild today with mum, it's a huge warehouse that sells stitching materials and quilting fabric - all at bargain price.I got al of this for £25 - yes really. (Blogger is turning my photos again -sorry)


I was so pleased with the wool. I spotted a long jacket in Prima yesterday and thought I'd send off for the pattern, then today they had this wool at just 40p a ball - amazing. It's not quite the right sort of wool but I will knit a sample square to ge the tension and size right and it should then be ok.

I have been busy this afternoon making cards for my charity funds. I used some of the card bits (and I bought loads) and made these cards this afternoon.



and I've made these for Mother's Day :)


I have alsomade a new blog today to help encourage me with my Slimming World. http://aimetufood.blogspot.com/
I made a yummy breakfast and lunch, and DH's dinner was good too.

Off to do the Tesco order now, happy reading.
