Bits and Pieces

Sunday's fair

This week is half term week and it has been busy with the trips to the dentist, doctor and shopping. Pickle-Lily attended three fairs at the week-end, the one on Saturday was very quiet and disappointing, Sunday was super (took four orders for my name plaques)  and Monday very windy. Monday was outside, in gazebos and we had to pack up at about 1.30 pm as we were in danger of taking off and going to Oz!
We still have a visit to the grandparents, a sleepover, the Big Gig for P-L and Mr P-L and son are doing a rugby referee course, to fit in before it's back to school on Monday!

This is one of my new dies  for the Big Shot, which I am having great fun with - a ric rac die! I love felt ric rac and have been buying it ready made up till now, but with this new toy I can make my own in any colour I want now!!
Bit catcher and pin cushion
This is my last bit to share with you - a bit big! I had seen these around and really wanted to make one of my own and now I have! It is so handy to put next to the sewing machine or where I am sitting working! A weighted pin cushion and an open bag to put bits in - genuis, if I say so my self!!

Glad to see the fairs went well - if it was a little breezy on Monday...

I just love the pin cushion and bit catcher. I could do with one in my workroom as my floor is always covered in threads and pins xx

What a wonderful idea! Necessity is the Mothers way to invention.
