Green Lanes

As some of my followers are aware my Other Half is really into Green Laning and Off Roading. The off roading bit done legally at proper Pay and Play sites.

Anyway, last weekend my OH, myself and a couple of other Green Lane enthusiasts, Shane and his lovely fiancĂ©e, Louise and their little boy came with us for a recce mission to Mid Wales to check out Strata Florida, Nant y Moch, Happy Valley and Soar y Muynydd. My OH is the area rep for the L200 Owner’s Group and is running a weekend away for them.

So, here are a few photos from our weekend away. :-)

Like Topsy

Well, I can hardly believe my little granddaughter is now just over 6 months old. Where has the time gone? It doesn’t seem like two minutes ago that Robert was phoning me to tell me Anne was in labour. Well, here’s a photo update of Little Miss Giggles.

It’s very hard to get an in focus photo of Rhiannon as she’s constantly jigging about and rocking from side to side like a little weeble.

Stash Buster Challenge

I have recently set myself a challenge to reduce my fabric stash and here is what I have made so far. (For a longer blog post please go and take a look at my other (fabric related) blog Pink Poodle Quilts.

First up I made a bag. A nice, bright Bella bag.



Then some placemats for my dad and stepmom.


Then another set of placemats for my dad and stepmom as the others were too posh for the kitchen and have been promoted to the ‘Dining Room’ lol


More little stash busting projects are on the go as I type.
