Here comes the weekend!

Strange! been working overtime today, and as I don't usually work on a Saturday, it still feels like Friday, and I have taken Monday off to make it into a weekend, so hopefully will get some time in the sewing room.
I have a million and 1 projects that are bursting to be made - mainly soft toys, and that is the influence of blog land for you!
mumsy bought me a couple of Aranzi Aronzo books, and I found the perfect cot sheets in brushed cotton for the cute dolls at our local mill - oswaldtwistle mills - a proper lancashire mill (if not way too commercial now).
anyway - it is mothers day tomorrow - been racking my brain for weeks what to make for mumsy and mumsy-in-law and finally found inspiration in the good old woman's weekly.

Went trawling round charity shops this week with my daughter Taryn - she spotted a complete china tea service minus one cup for only £2.75 - what a bargain! so had Taryn, and my oldest niece Maisy all in the tiny kitchen last Thursday evening making candles in cups - found a candle making kit I got at a jumble sale donkeys years ago - and now I want to make loads of candles! we scented them with begamot and geranium oil - I think they are quite sweet, hope the mums do too...

Also found the 'Bavarian' cup and saucer in another charity shop for the grand price of £1 - so had too have it. Husband wants to know what I am going to do with these strange china objects - I have told him "they are for putting little things in, in the sewing room! d'oh!"
