Best Day Ever!

Well today has to be the best day so far this year, why? you ask.There are three reasons
1) Is because of the beautiful gift i recived from sally, which i found waiting for me when i got home from college.


This is my first stitched gift from a fellow blogger and i really love it, the design is really cute and i love the colours sally used, it's prefect for my machine bobbins, threads and needles. I alos recived some hand dyed floss. Thank you so much sally it is now sitting next to my sewing machine holding all my little bits and bobs!

2) Also when i came home i found three bags of new clothes from my mummy and new shoes all for my trip to london next week!

3)the wether was quite nice today after weeks a bad weather!lol

Is Having To Much Spoiling My Childs Chance Of A Happy Future?

So tonight i have been completely awakened to a very real possibility, that i am unintentionally ruining my daughters chances of ever just being simply happy. No I'm not just beating myself up needlessly, i read a blog post tonight that made me take a good hard look at what I'm teaching my two year old without even realising it!

My daughter is two and already she has a bedroom full of toys, half of which i could throw away and she would never even notice and with Christmas coming up its bound to get worse! At home i very rarely see her play with one toy for more than 5 minutes before she's running of in search of something else and when i read this post by chance tonight, it made me wonder if she would take this habit and carry it with her for the rest of her life. Would she buy herself something nice only to want more because the first item is not enough?. Am i setting her up for a life of credit payments and living paycheck to paycheck?

I have seen this habit myself in m…

Happy Halloween

Hi guys, Happy Halloween to you all :D


Little miss had a very fun day dressed as a kitty all day. then her grandad and auntie took her trick or treating for hour while mummy handed out sweeties to other little 'monsters'. I love Halloween just because you have an excuse to dress your little humans up all cute or scary for the fun of it.


I have no doubt that this wont be the one and olny time my daughter wears this dress as she had fun pretending to be a cat and wiggle her tail all day.

Hope you all had fun too

Till next time

Tutu Expensive!

OK my first post on the matter of saving money when you have a two year old that likes to shop (that's my story and I'm sticking to it!), Is about tutu's. Me and my daughter are taking a holiday in a few weeks with her grandparents to Devon and every year the site has a fancy dress competition. Now naturally I want my daughter to look the part so I ordered her a hand made tutu in the style of Cinderella, It drop kicked by bank balance by £38.50! now don't get me wrong its lush and I love it, but it got me wondering if I could do it myself. They would be perfect for Christmas presents for all her little friends and no doubt little miss is going to want a lot of dress up stuff too! So I looked to see if I could get the stuff and do it myself, and guess what? Of course I could! This tutu cost me £6.60 to make and I have enough fabric left over to do another!  Its made with Two 6inx 25yrd rolls of tulle one pink one purple and a waffle crochet top from china, found on eb…
