No computer - it's sick with a virus ..

I have a very, very sick computer. 
I don't know if it is even going to survive! 
Fingers crossed I will be back online soon. x

Make do and mend ...

I'm all for re-using, recycling, re-purposing, and any other 're-s' out there! 
So here's a very simple one - cut off jeans.

Little Miss Blue's jeans had already been patched with an applique heart and then another hole grew. 
She already has a pair of raggedy denim cut offs so I thought I would make a cuff out of a fabric from a cotton pillowcase.

I was happy and she likes them - what more can you ask for?!

As for the cut off bits they were put in a little pile of denim cut offs I have growing. 
So I knew just where to turn when my own jeans got a hole! 
Along with a circle cut out of stripy denim from Little Miss Brown's cut offs
 (which were 2nd generation hand me downs!)
they made quite a pretty patch I thought
(with somewhat wonky beginner's free motion stitching)!

I love it when clothes have a story to tell. xx

Salute to the sun ...

Earlier this week Little Miss Blue
 found the sunny patio in early morning
the perfect spot for a
little bit of tai chi combined with a little bit of yoga!

Hello ......

I've not blogged for a few months now and couldn't really figure out why.  Obviously Christmas was busy, the summer is lazy and I also think that moving to wordpress didn't suit.  I liked the look but couldn't get used to it.

Since I stopped blogging I realise I have got a LOT more things done but then when I look back at previous blogs I love the memories it evokes and there is certainly satisfaction looking back and seeing what I've made and we've done.

So here's a new one!!  Hope you find something to interest and would love to hear from you - questions, ideas, swaps anything at all.

If you're interested previous posts can be found here and here.

Many thanks. xx
