I don't really know what to write about so I will start with the obvious standby and say what lovely weather we had today! I'm telling you this so I don't forget that we had lovely weather today - sunny and nice - not that I did anything about it as we spent the morning at the dentist getting everyone's teeth checked and then I went to the pub for lunch with two of my bestest friends (I'll just point out here that I NEVER get to be a "lady that lunches" so it was a very pleasant experience!)
I have been working on some more wallets for etsy - although I'm sure I've got enough in there already! I just can't help making them when I am in the mood because they are such a fun way to play with different fabric combinations.
This is a pile of WIPs - wallets-in-progress!
And this is the particularly BRIGHT and CHIRPY Easter one I have just put in the shop.
The colours are well out of my usual comfort zone but just seemed to be happy together.
And I love the fact that I managed to put the carrot fabric on the inside of the zipped section. I really like "hiding" things like this!
I had an emergency call from a friend the other night to put my fairy-helper's wings on again! Her youngest child was about to lose his first tooth and was terrified that the tooth-fairy wouldn't be able to find it if he didn't have a special place to put it. After everything that could go wrong with it did, I managed to get this finished today (I don't know how so many things managed to go wrong with such a simple bit of work!!!)
It is not a very good photo as it is soaking wet! I had to wash it quickly to get the pen marks off and Finlay was so desperate to have it that they have taken it home like this to go in his mummy's tumble dryer ready for tonight.
Meanwhile, this happened to my own littlest darling:
so he is a little miffed that he hasn't got a special pocket for his tooth. Unfortunately he actually swallowed his!!!!! The tooth fairy still came though so we didn't have to do any excavations thank goodness!!!!!
And finally, to explain the title of this post....................
Not what you expect to find in the cupboard under the stairs.......................
Well, the mess was to be expected - but the little visitor was a surprise!!!!!
