These are Burn's squares, with two more strips to go,
By the end of the day I had a pile of squares ready to lay out "in a pleasing manner" (Burn's fave phrase!) which I shall be doing today.
Please join me tomorrow for the next thrilling instalment!

You may not have realised, but I have been trying very hard to blog every day in August, as I am off work. I have done well so far but yesterday I just didn't get round to it. The reason is that I bought some rather divine fabric to make a bag with and last night I had a good old stretch without interruptions so I just got on with it! And it got too late by the time I finished it. So I have decided to cheat a bit and I will blog twice today. Another quick peg bag for my first post.

When Mum saw my peg bag she decided that after 50 years without one she deserved one too! So after a rummage through my fat quarters I found some colours she would like and here we are. The yellow button is from a huge tin of vintage buttons given to my daughter. They are so quick and easy to make I feel lots more coming on!

Today I thought I would show you what two of my children have been up to over the summer holidays. I picked up a copy of the "Mollie Makes" magazine that has been out for several months now and in it was a pattern for these rather scrumptious felt biscuits! Jess decided to make the Jammie Dodger whilst Eliza (who is only 12) made the iced gems from the patterns provided. Then one of Jess's friends asked for a custard cream and a Party Ring so Jess made them using the pictures in the magazine to help. If you would like to se other things this designer has made then have a look just here. Jess is now working on a Bourbon....!

So here is my finished necklace! Not a very good pic but it is really sparkly.
So if you want a great craft experience in Brighton I would thoroughly recommend going there as Jo is lovely, and we even had a cup of tea in vintage cups and saucers!

this on the Purl Bee blog ages ago and have wanted to make one for about the same time. Next time I go to Gillys we are decorating some MDF wreath shapes that we bought a while ago. So I decided to use mine as the base for this wreath.
