My new CK bag

Have been looking at this in the CK catalogue and web site and drooling. Today we went to Southwold and had a lovely lunch in the Red Lion. When we left the Red Lion I went looking for the shop that sells CK, that my daughter told me about and there was the BAG and at 25% off!!. Imagine my joy when Harry said he would buy it for me. So I am now the very proud owner of this delightful bag - Thanks so much Harry

Sewing for Bean

Many of you may know that my daughter,Sian is pregnant. The baby is due on January 10th and I'm getting really excited. By the way Sian and her partner, Ian, call the baby Bean at the moment. I promised Sian I would do some sewing for her. I bought this pattern and she chose the material and I have now made a bag for the nappies etc - its lovely with two side pockets, one large back pocket and three pockets inside; 3 bibs; a changing mat; and a burp cloth- all using this pattern.
As soon as I can get my camera sorted I'll take some photos of what I have made.

I'm Back!!!!!

and determined to continue this time.

I have a lot of catching up to do and some people I need to contact. Will try to get some of it done in the next day or to as I have some photos to download etc.,

In the meantime, the Cath Kidston Christmas Gift guide has just been posted through my door. And what amazing eye candy it all is!! There is so much in there that is tempting me and yet I am trying hard not to spend

So here is my challenge: I will not buy from Cath Kidston but will attempt to create the look through cheaper alternatives.
I have already started as I have bought this for £6.90:instead of this from CK for £15:
And this for £2.30:

Instead of £5 from CK:
