Celebrations, rethinks and a bit of progress

Celebrations, rethinks and a bit of progress?
Witty titles are not my strong point at the moment :(

Miss Keegan celebrated her 10th Birthday yesterday.

Rainbow cake of sorts - yummy Vanilla and Chocolate
so the girls and I went out for lunch in town.  
Thank you dear Primary School for having a pupil free day for Keegan's birthday!

We had a lovely lunch in a little Italian restaurant, just the three of us 
and then we enjoyed some retail therapy ... 10 year old style!
Clothes, clothes and more clothes and the icing on the cake .... a One Direction Poster.

Happy Birthday Miss Muppet, So pleased you had a fantastic day xx
(I am still trying to work out where the last 10 years have gone)

My Favourite Things - SKOW

Not far to go now.

and the rethink?

Late last year I was in a Christmas Charm Square Swap.
When they arrived I started to sew up a picnic rug but never finished it.

I don't know what I was thinking, then or now because I started doing this at the weekend

and now I have this

104 5" charm square ready to go AGAIN
Now what to do with them?

I am trying to finish off a few things so that I can start a few more
(my attempt at being disciplined) I am also stalking my inbox as this is just about to start

and I am so looking forward to it.

Off now, it is not quite 10am, it's blowing a gale and I think I need to light the fire 
and find something to help my sore throat and pounding head.
Once I get that under control I might be able to sneak back into my sewing space :o)

Oh, one last thing, see at the top of my Blog on the right hand side.
It's my Blogoversary very soon. Do you feel like a little give away?
OK, let me see what I can do :o)



  1. happy birthday Keegan and love your yummy cake,you are so clever Sharon.Love your SKOW blocks,sounds like you are in for the flu,hope you get better soon,its so wet and cold here i will be happy to be sunning by the beach Friday.xx

  2. Yay for birthdays! Love your blocks, good luck with the charm squares! Hope you dont get too sick :( it's no fun. Yay for anniversaries too! x

  3. The cake looks delish! And I think the post title is fine, good luck with re-using the charm squares...

  4. Sounds like a lovely happy birthday girls day out. Excellent recycling with your charm squares (although they did look good with the white smashing). Happy early anniversary.

  5. Happy Birthday Keegan... 10 years is such a landmark day.... oh my ... that was lots of unpicking... much better to make something you want.... the SKOW blocks are great... so cold here today too... hope you got lots of stitching time...

  6. I was in a Christmas charm square swap last year as well(maybe the same one) mine are still in a pile. I'm a bit unsure what to use them for. They look great in a pile.
    Happy birthday Keegan. lyn.robyn.smith@gmail.com

  7. Sharon, I get your e-mails everyday and I am just blown away with how much you get done with 4 kiddo's and everything else you have to do. I look forward to seeing what you have to show us. Thanks for all the inspiration. Daisy

  8. Congratulations on completing your SKoW blocks...they look great! I, too, have joined FQS Designer BOM...love the fabrics, but am a bit concerned about how I'm going to find the time to make the blocks! Happy Birthday to Keegan :)
