T is for Tuff Spot

The Tuff Spot We’ve had our tuff spot, a builders tray, for a couple of years now and we go through a lot of phases with it.  At the moment we are in a not using it phase so I figured for my letter T this week I would revisit …

Sick #abc123challenge

Sick, sick, sick and oh oh the diarrhoea! Yup I can very much justify the use of sick in my title after the wobble last week of using a negative title in a happy post each week. S is for Sick!! We started on Sunday night with the Robot being …

S is for Smoothie

Attempting to cook in the kitchen with the Robot is pretty stressful but one thing we’ve been enjoying doing together is making a Smoothie for snack time.  It’s my ploy to get fruit and milk in him during the day in what he considers a fun treat.  I really should …

Really Rubbish #abc123challenge

I think that I’ve got into the habit of giving these weekly round ups a negative title, having a mini moan then launching into all the happy bits from the week. Really Rubbish. Are you okay with that? Really I should just have a moan post and a happy post …

Handy Fold Up Pouches

Handy Fold Up Pouches Last month I got carried away making these adorable litte pouches from the book Stitched by Aneela Hoey.  It’s all part of yet another sewalong that I’ve got involved in called #sew6organizers.  This one has been organised by Stacey and Zena and the goal is to …

R is for Reading

Quite Tough #abc123challenge

We’ve been on holiday this week just gone. I demanded to Dave that our first proper camp with the kids needed to be a lot less remote than our usual Scottish trips so we opted for Northumbria. With family and friends nearby I figured it would be better should everything …

Marcelle Medallion A Start

Marcelle Medallion The rabbit hole of the Quilty Instagram world has led me down a path I didn’t mean to recently. I spotted a sewalong for this Marcelle Medallion Quilt hosted by Nicole. I was smitten instantly. It’s a beautiful pattern of points and techniques I’m interested in trying. So …

Quoits for a Toddler

Q is for Quoits, yes, I’ve said it and who knew I’d be writing a blog post about quoits this week. It’s week Q on the #ABC123Challenge and I’ve had to come up with a play activity based around the letter Q that would be fitting for my toddler to …
