Didn't Realise

Honestly, today when i decided bethany's soft toys could do with a wash, i didn't realise just how strange & funny they would look until Sophie came down the stairs after taking this photo from the landing window.....


then later when i put some more out she told me it looked like a torture rope for toys..............


It does look funny doesn't it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


"Save us please, we can't take any more"........ :(  ...... "not until you tell me who you work for".... weirdo!!!

Anyway enough of that strangeness I got some more BEAUTIFUL fabrics in the post yesterday, perfect to finish my quilt.............


A few borders round the edge perhaps.......not sure yet but they do look sweet don't they, i'm in love anyway, I really do have a thing for fabrics yummmmmmmmmmmm
Here's a few more beauties..................


OHHHHH can't wait to get stuck into these, a bag or two perhaps, maybe some pillow cases or a nice apron endless possibilities xxxxxxx, am sooooooooooooo excited!!!!!!!!!! I really do love to create, guess thats why blogging is so enjoyable, all the lovely stuff out there, i really do have to restrain myself from spending hours browsing through all the fab blogs, its too much, all that talent.............I love it :D

On another note i wanted to show off another of my daughters talents, this is a beautiful drawing Sophie did in chalk pastels....


I'm gobsmacked as she's never drawn with them before, her first attempt!
Now i know she'll kill me for posting this but hey!!!! we love showing off our kids achievements don't we?
I guess i'm just real proud of the four of them :D

Looking forward to the laziest weekend i've had in ages, may take a trip to the beach tomorrow if by some miracle the weather is good, fingers crossed eh!
Hope you all have a great one & hope to hear from you
Lots of love Karen Xxxxxxxxxxxx

Poor teddies! I always feel like I'm torturing them to, pegging their ears to the line! Fantastic picture. Can I ask - Where did you get your beautiful fabrics?

And be a-u-tiful sketch. I love it. Very, very clever girl!

Those softies look so forlorn hanging on the line.
Wow, more gorgeous fabrics to get creative with, looking forward to seeing more creations.
Your daughter's artwork is lovely. I'd love to see some more of her work.
I hope you get to the beach.

You know I'm a sucker for anything out on the line. These pictures just cracked me up and I'm still giggling here. But, they are going to smell so fresh, when tucked in for a good night sleep tonight. Now, about that fabric....don't even get me started on how cute that is...

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Toodles,

Poor toys! Hehe! But they will feel so much better when they clean and dry and back where they belong. :)
Those fabrics are yummy and I cant wait to see what you create with them.
Gosh you have a very talented daughter! She must follow her mum!
Enjoy the sun!

I'm thinking that there are some small children out there who might have nightmares after such a sight. Ha! They sure do look like a forlorn lot but they will be so fresh and cuddly once they are dry. I usually just threw ours in the dryer for a 30 minute spin and that was that.

Love those fabrics you've chosen and your daughter's drawing is lovely. I have two boys and tried my best to get them interested in anything artsy but they didn't go for it. :/

Hope your day is great. Tammy

Good old teddies, they look and smell so much nicer tho don't they :)
Pretty fabrics, with endless possibilities. Hope you got to the beach, I am a tad envious.

Helen Philipps said...

Yes,I think teddies always look so forlorn pegged up on the line to dry! I love your gorgeous new fabrics - very yummy indeed. Your daughter's pastel picture is amazing, so talented.
Hope you are enjoying your week.

Leah said...

Oh that has made me giggle! Those poor wee things, strung up on the line - hilarious. Your daughter is hugely talented - that picture is beautiful. Have a fab weekend!

Have just found your blog and I love it! Found you through a link on another blog (I forget which one) and I'm so glad I checked you out. Your crochet, baking and sewing projects are gorgeous, love them.

I'm looking for inspiration for a blanket to make for my little niece and I think the giant granny square may be the answer. The yarn you used is lovely - very pretty colours - do you mind me asking what type? I'm a crochet beginner but have very much caught the bug!

(gorgeous and talented girls you have there too.)

The poor little things hanging on the line do look sad. But you brought me a smile and a memory. When teddy was washed my Bethany would sit under him and wait until he was dry.

That picture is stunning.
