Drawstring Bag and Beads

It's been a while since I've done any sewing and as I'll be selling at a vintage fair in less than two months I'd better get a move on. I've made a few things already but I'm especially pleased with my drawstring bags. 
They're so simple to make and I love this fabric, so pretty!

  I picked up a bag of wooden beads for only a pound in Tiger
They come in an assortment of shapes and sizes with around eighty beads per pack. Bargain!!!
Of course I couldn't just stop at one bag, not when they come in so many beautiful colours.

Have a lovely Sunday and a great week.

Photography #4 Full Moon


On Tuesday (7th February) I'd spent most of the evening staring out of my window at the bright full Moon in a mostly cloudless sky. Camera and tripod came out and I must have taken over one hundred shots of it. 

I wasn't expecting anything spectacular so was very surprised, when I looked at the photos on my computer, to find some lovely shots of the silhouetting branches and one clear shot of the moons surface. 

I don't know much about shutter speeds and ISO settings etc, but I figure if I got one good shot I must be able to get clearer shots in the future. I just need to play around with the settings a lot more.

I kept the last photo in because it looks like a heart...soppy me!

 Have a fabulous week!

Photography #3 Snowy Day in Battersea












This afternoon I enjoyed a lovely walk, with my daughter, around Falcon Park - known to all as 'Banana Park' because of its shape. We had a great time taking photographs of practically everything in sight. These are just a few of my favourite shots. 

Have a great week!
