[Insert wailing sound here]

The wailing is because I am spending all my time separating the horridest small snarling children instead of getting on with the tutorial for my spot on the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop which I share with Sarah Lou on Thursday.   (This is how we generally spend the first couple of days of a holiday until we hit our stride.)  I had an idea for this tutorial such a long time ago, but have put off actually doing it to the last minute AGAIN.  Will I never learn?   Some of the wailing is coming from the children but quite a lot of it is coming from inside my head.

I must be getting a bit of sewing done though because I've just tried reaching for the foot pedal on my laptop.

Here's a sneaky peak:

Lobster Red

Please do go and visit today's hosts on the Hop, who are:

Di from Willowbeck Designs
Jennifer from Knotted Thread

This is such an inspiring blog hop because of the tutorial each participant is posting as part of their day.  This time Di is showing how to make a postage stamp cushion cover - it's a really lovely scrap buster.  Jennifer's tutorial is not up at the minute (transatlantic timing) but I'll be going over to have another look later.


  1. Oh, no! Love those fabrics, though - excited to see what you are making.

  2. Oh dear, I remember those days well, it would probably help if you had semi-decent weather too! I love the fabric you are using for your Blog Hop tutorial, looking forward to seeing what you have done with it!

  3. I really sympathise, some days I do a lot of inner wailing! Sneak peak looks great, can't wait to see it. Hope the small ones start behaving soon or maybe you could just send them out into the rain.

  4. Ooh, look at those sweet little lobsters! Can't wait to see what you come up with. I am familiar with the pain of having squabbling children at home for the holidays -- yikes :)

  5. ooh, magic beans - can't wait to see!

    Love it! If only laptops could sew, then I could browse sewing blogs and sew at the same time...
