May beginnings

What a terribly absent blogger I've been in the last couple of weeks! It's not for lack of crafty goings on, more for lack of spare time and energy. The most exciting development was completing my First Ever Dress. But more about that later in a proper post. This one is devoted to my big sis and her birthday - the first of our family's bumper birthday month.

Her requested birthday present was for some pilates gear to replace her usual hockey kit circa 1995. So I was happy to oblige, and pottered off to H&M to invest in a whole raft of lycra lounge wear. But no PE kit is complete without a traditional PE bag so I attempted some  free-stylin' applique... not sure the results were quite legible but it was quite  fun nonetheless and made for some more interesting wrapping than the usual paperchase fare (who'm I kidding - I LOVE paperchase!)

And no trip to Brum is complete without some homeroasted Moroccan spiced cashew nuts.
So with the first of the birthdays done and dusted, I'm off to Italy on Sunday for my Dad's 61st and my Mum's 60th. Hopefully time for the Dress Post before then, but a week's worth of actual work to get done in one day before the holidays commence...
