Well it seems that even my bank knows what today is...
Although it's in the back of my mind I'm not dwelling on it. In fact Mr G and I have decided to go to lunch together to celebrate.

While waiting for lunch time to roll around I made this pencil case to hold all those random pens and pencils that seem to gather on the tray on top of the microwave. It's been years since I put a zip in anything and I'm impressed I even remembered how to do it.
Next two jobs are to make reversible bags out of these fabrics. The floral below was found at the Way We Wear Fair last weekend. A score! 4.5 m of seersucker for $45. They lady that sold it to me said it was 1950's but I'm wondering if it's older than that.
The fabrics below were salvaged from Vinnies a few weeks ago - massive pieces for only $2 each. Sometimes it's amazing what you find when you have time to look!
Will post up the bags when they are done.


  1. Good Luck Cherry, Can't wait to hear your news! x

  2. An exciting day! You're getting closer... but good that you're not dwelling on it either - so much easy to say than do though. My first child didn't show up until eleven days after his due date... it felt like forever.
    REST UP!
    All my best wishes to you and your growing family.

  3. Keeping yourself busy - wont be too long now - glad you've gone out to lunch today.
    Love the pencil case and as I told you the checkers were a real hit - sat well on the couch between us - no worries about sliding buttons off the squares - brilliant x x x

  4. How exciting....good luck with it all! the pencil case is very cool indeedy. take care, andy

  5. Not long now, Cherry!! You certainly seem to be making the most of your last few days of freedom!! Good luck...

  6. Good luck Cherry!!! I hope all goes well for you, and looking forward to hearing the good news!

  7. hello you busy bee! Our internet is back on - woot! oh, how I missed the web and being inspired by others *sigh*. I had a nice break from blogging though.

    Thinking of you in these final days xx
