Snow pie anyone?

I couldn't resist this shot .....

This is our little metal garden table and chair set, we sometimes sit out here on a summer evening with a glass of wine.

The snow on the table measured 3.5 inches thick.

It's so difficult to get good light into my pictures at the moment even outside, the sun is so low in the sky at this time of year and doesn't stay around for very long. I wonder how long the pie will last ?

Update: 1st December....
it snowed again in the night and the pie has doubled in size.....

..... the cherry is in there somewhere!

Let it snow!

I have so many projects on the go at the moment and not able to show pictures of any of them just yet I have been busy making lots of nice things most of them Christmas gifts. Im hoping to get some pictures of some little pieces I have made for Charlotte seen as how she is too little to read my blog :o)

It's been snowing here since yesterday morning, Charlotte was too little last year to remember the weeks of snow we had so it was all a new experience to her yesterday

Family fun with the sledge

She loved it!

.........and so did we !

Harry and I got busy with building a snow bear in the front garden.......

Bye bye for now

Back soon with some more pictures of Christmas makes.

I made a bag !

I made a new bag for myself using this wonderful tutorial from 'Tiny Happy' Melissa
It's such a wonderful, simple tutorial to follow with great easy step by step pictures to follow and a great template drawing.

For my bag I used some beautiful navy damask fabric, leftover from another project Im working on

and a beautiful two tone blue green shimmery cotton mix for the inside.
The tutorial shows one pocket on the inside but I added another bigger one on the other side of the inside I like pockets :o)

This is the inside but the bag is fully reversible so can be used either way if you put a button on both sides.
I also made the button loop longer than needed so I put a little dart about a cm from the top which I have looped some ribbon through. The button is metal with an antique brass finish, I'm undecided about it and might change it if I find a more glitzy one.....I'm thinking shimmery glass and chunky.

I like how it has turned out and I haven't stopped using it since I made it on Friday it's fab
Thanks Melissa <3
