Apparently there is something called Handmade Monday. It's a bit of a *link party*, where people can link their blogs (about handmade stuff of course!) and click links to other like minded bloggers too. Thought I might give it a try, it can't hurt, right? Thought I would share the details with you in case you might be interested :)
This explains it much better than I have done, of course!
About Handmade Monday
And here is the link to the weekly blog post:
I hope you find some of the links interesting reading. In the absence of my daughter (aren't childminders great!) I am about to settle down with a brew and a good read!
But before I go, I wanted to share my little bit of experimentation. My mum (in her wisdom) has sent her sewing machine to live with me. I am not a seamstress. I never will be. My poor old gran spent far too many afternoons trying to teach me to sew, and failing miserably. I can sew on a button, and I can fix a hem (or a decapitated mouse as those of you who follow me on facebook already know) but that really is the extent of my sewing prowess. But like a child in a sweet shop I just had to get stuck in. Armed with a denim skirt that Caoimhe has grown out of, and one which she had managed to get a permanent and irremovable stain on so is no good for Tilly to grow into, a couple of lengths of ribbon and some stick on sparkle, I came up with this little bag:
Ok, so it's not going to concern Kippling but Caoimhe certainly likes it and that's all that matters! My hubby was suitably impressed as well, although he is a bit on the biased side! In any event, fun was had. and isn't that what it's all about?
Til next time!
Welcome to my blog!
If you ask me what my very favourite thing is I would not hesitate to say my family. I came into motherhood quite late on, and was immediately overwhelmed with how amazing it is. Now I would like nothing more than to be a Domestic Goddess, and surround my family in love, good food, beautiful things and lots of happy memories. And like the majority of families these days, we need to do it on a budget!
I firmly believe we all have a little bit of the Domestic Goddess inside us, just waiting to break out. Whether that is knowing how to make a roast chicken feed a family of 4 for a week, being able to make, repair or recycle clothes, hunting down a bargain, or simply turning everyday, simple things into pretty or useful items, with a little bit of imagination we can all dip in to the Goddess inside and make our lives that little bit more interesting.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy sharing my (challenging) journey into Domestic Goddessness!
