Jon's Birthday

Celebrating 24 years with some gorgeous cupcakes baked by Becci.  Going out for a meal next week to Jon's favourite Italian restaurant.

First outing for new Outfit!

Lovely weekend away in new car and caravan.  Weather was gorgeous and the new van lived up to expectations.  Lots of room, comfy beds and lots of features and gadgets to enjoy and keep Paul occupied.

The Westie lads are seasoned caravanners but it was first time out for Scooby.  He loved it and settled down comfortably as soon as we got there.

New car breezed up the hills, Paul says it tows well and is nice to drive.  Off again next weekend, we haven't been over summer as busy settling Scooby into our family so making up for lost time between now and November.

Hello Berlingo!

Yesterday we exchanged our elderly Picasso for a Berlingo.  We've had two good long rides in it and we like it.  It's comfy, great for towing and our dogs have plenty of room to travel in style.

Goodbye Picasso!

10 years - 127000 miles - no repairs.  Done us proud.  Hope the next one does as well.

Debbie Shore Books

I have come to like Debbie Shore's approach to sewing. She's a great teacher, generous with her excellent You Tube tutorials and isn't fussy about you selling anything you make from her designs. I've just received these books from Amazon and preordered her next two for later this year and early 2016.

My fabric stock is undergoing a reorganisation as the house renovations are nearing an end so I'm looking forward to lots of quick makes and getting my sewing machine ticking over again.
