Yummy Anytime

I an effort to get healthier and lose some weight, there is nothing nicer then a smoothie.  Plain and simple I find is the best too!

  1. Hand full of fruit (strawberries today)
  2. 1/2 cup of greek yogurt (natural unflavoured for me)
  3. 2 ice cubes (no need if your fruit is frozen)
  4. 1/2 cup water
  5. Optional 1 tsp chia seeds (for that bonus health kick)
Buzz it all up!

I used my hand blender and enjoyed my "anytime yummy" in a minute of throwing everything in the cup. Perfect!
*image curtesy of google images - but mine looked exactly the same.

Cutlery Roll

My work has this great kitchen and about 2 weeks ago they replaced all the cutlery, lovely sparkling silver knives, forks, spoons but on Friday when I had a bowl of soup all I could find was a fork. Where is the world did it all go?

I had to leave my soup for another day or wait an hour for the dishwasher to finish it's cycle and to ensure that this doesn't happen again, I took the initiative and made myself a cutlery roll for work.

Now I just have to hope that no one steals it, like all the other cutlery because there was no way all the cutlery was in the dishwasher.

I've made a few pencil rolls in my time so I just whipped this up from memory, but if anyone is interested this is a great tutorial to follow, all credits go to "Sew Scrumptious"

Nail Love

A huge love of Pinterest and my nails has me on mani art handmade!

It's been a while

Life has had a dramatic turn of events.  About 6mths ago my husband left his job and I had to return to full time work and all spare time (sewing time) was completed absorbed with household duties and sleep.

But there were moments and here is a little pic roundup of my handmade efforts, not many but I still enjoy it and too many days I dream I could lock myself away and just be handmade.

My little Facebook page is very silent, I'm not sure what I should do with it, I just don't have the time... if only there were more time, but then again that time would likely be swallowed up with some other task that is deemed more important.

After work drinks... come on it is a LOL drink!

 Happy 39th - Oh hell the big 4 0 is so close

 A little clutch for a work collegue

A quick quilt 

1st ever patchwork quilt

 After I made the girly quilt I thought I should make a boyish quilt just in case my friend has a boy (she had a girl by the way)

Baby Shower gift.  I really enjoyed making this little set 

OMG, how good does this pav look...and it tasted equally good too! 

Little Man's birthday cake

I do this more for self though but thanks to my tiny 3 followers if your reading.
