Scrap Rainbow See It All Pouch

Firstly hello October! Hello to my blog. Hello scrap rainbow see it all pouch. If you saw my last post you know that I’m having a quibble or a what do ya call it thing with the blog at the moment so it takes much effort for me to get this down. Heck it might kick-start me writing again!

We shall see, in the mean time I’m having a little love affair with my scraps, aka sewing with them. I’ve hit a very nothing gets left behind to my sewing style and I’m glad, I love my scraps!! They loved to be used not chucked in the bin.
