Keeping Busy

Firstly, thank you for the kind comments on my earlier post. There is still no sign of Fat Boy but we're not giving up hope.

I've been busy sewing today to keep myself busy and my mind of Fat Boy although I did look out of the window and scan the green outside our house on numerous occasions just incase I saw him. But I always find sewing very thereputic and as I need to get some new things in my various shop fronts today was a good day to make a start.

I have a little bag that my Sis bought me that I hang on one of our bed posts that I store jewellery in. It's a handy little thing and I decided that it would be nice to make some. Bags are always so pretty for storing things in I think.

They're only quite small but would be perfect for storing small bits and pieces. Sometimes I find I end up with too much clutter on my bedside table~ handcream, eyecream, lip salve, nail file.... All of these would be much better if I tucked them inside one of these little bags and hung it close to the bed for evening watching telly in bed pampering sessions.

As is always the case, once I dragged out a lot of my fabric stash and started on one, I couldn't stop. The first four are available here if you would like one and there are others waiting to be put together.

I seem to have got my creative flow back again.

Hi there, new to your blog, found you through little cotton rabbits. Sorry to hear about Fat Boy but you never know he may turn up yet. My cat went awol for 4 days a few years back, turned up very hungry and smelly - reckon he was locked in a shed. I love your creations, you are really very talented hun. Sue x

Hi dear Fiona,
I'm so sorry to hear about Fat Boy. I hope he comes back or you find him. I think the posters idea is great. Who knows a kind person found hind him and will give him back to you? As the moving is imminent here, I am concerned about our cat Lepooh. But we will try our best to make it as smooth and comfortable for her in the new house.
Your bags are just adorable! I hope you sell them by the lot!
Lots of love and hugs to you and I will be hoping that you find your cat.
