Stitching on a Sunday!

I was really looking forward to a sleep-in this morning, somewhere around 6.45am would have been nice, I was woken by some person using a chainsaw at 6.05am, then minutes later I could hear the kids outside calling the chickens and the cat over to the house.........what do you think I found next? There was Ryan and Megan snuggled up in Megan's bed, Ryan had a cat and Megan had a chicken! I wish I had taken a picture of this but I was a bit cranky at the time.......yesterday we gave Megan's room a total clean, walls, blinds, bed, old toys stored away, wardrobe sorted, it was a huge job! Grrrrr!

So because I didn't get my sleep-in I decided to use some of the Yardage Design fabric I had left over from the chair revamp and make myself a zippered pouch to put in my handbag........I'll probably put some lippy or something like that in it.
I did this to the bottom so it'll stand on its own if needed.
I was surprised I got it all together without any problems...........I really don't like putting in zippers but this one went in quite nicely, much easier than the little pouches I made out of a denim skirt.
I'm off to see what the kids are up to in the kitchen..........I think I can smell some chocolate brownies in the oven. Yummo!!

That's a lovely little pouch, looks so classic. The black trim really makes it.

I so wish you'd got a snap of that sweet little scene. It would have been very hard to stay angry, I'll bet!!! x

The best laid plans...!
Loving your spring cleaning, baking and making efforts, perhaps there'll be time for a family 'camp' ie: snooze this afternoon.

You are so clever! Love the idea of using a black zip - excellent accent to the muted natural colours. More fabric on it's way for you to play with ;o) Nic
