A warm welcome to my new followers, is is good to know that what I scribble entertains.
A late start to my day after our night out, we had a very pleasurable evening everybody there were our friends as well as work colleagues.
The bowling was very funny they were all trying so hard to outdo each other and mostly failing miserably.
The food was acceptable but then you do not expect Cordon Bleu in a bowling alley. I made a huge Cappuccino Gateaux, David's favourite, which disappeared in the blink of an eye.
Fran asked me to make some quilted mobile phone covers, sometimes on the train her bag gets squashed and she wanted to protect her phone from damage.
I had a look on the web and there are lots of tutorials out there but I wanted something that was simple and quick to put together.
I had a scrap of material and wadding and without worrying to measure threw this together just to see how it turned out.
This is how it turned out, far too big of course at 4 by 7.5 inches it is even too big for my Galaxy Note, it will come in for something.
I was quite pleased but did not like the top stitching down the sides so tried this.
Much better, I slip stitched the sides and used a hair elastic for closure. On the next one I intend to round off the corners.
I asked Fran to look through my fabric and find some that she liked and she found 3! including the blue one above, this is now housing her phone.
This took me half an hour at the most and I am almost as pleased with it as Fran is. I will make her the other 2 tomorrow, if anyone would like a show and tell on making this let me know and I will post it..
We are eating early today and it is in the oven now, Bacon chops from Mr S, jacket potatoes, veg for Fran and salad ( no I haven't put that in the oven) for us. I can barely wait I have the rumblies in the tumblies to quote my favourite character, the one and only Pooh Bear.
I love reading all the comments and do my utmost to answer them all.
