A Quilting Quality Time!! #HeatherMakes

Hello there,

Thought I would pop on and say 'Hello'

Over the past few weeks Katie and I have made a lovely quilt!  I did the sewing and she chose the fabrics and helped (being bossy) with the design and layout!!  We really love this quilt!

At the moment I am in the planning things to make and sew for the schools Christmas Fayre.  Pinterest is a great place for ideas and 'how too' tutorials!  I love it!  

Do you use Pinterest at all?  I can spend hours browsing through all the lovely ideas!

Bye for now

Holiday fun & Back to school!


Such along time again between postings! Since Laura's wedding we have been on holiday. We went to Conwy, North Wales. Such a beautiful place. I have been there many, many times. I spent quite alot of my childhood holidays there! My kiddies totally enjoyed being at the places which I'd talked about so much!!

Such a fantastic time with my parents and children! A great week! A lovely end to a crazy fun summer!

Of course school time had to come around again ... Mark has now started secondary school! Back to 'business' and back to normal! My aim now is to get back to my sewing too ...

I re-painted my room. Replaced a few bits of furniture to make my room more 'workable'. I've no excuse now not to be creative! 

Bye for now! I hope you enjoyed the photos!
Hugs Heather

So Much News ... Many photos too!!

Hello there!

I have made one wee hanger ... Nope, not much sewing at all ... This was for the kids school bus driver!  We have named the bus the 'Disco Bus' because of the flashing school sign on the back of the bus plus the music is always loud as my kids always ask for it to be turned up!! 

Disco Bus

14 TODAY!! 

What an exciting few weeks we have had! We have had such a fantastic time.  First of all there was all fun in the run up to Laura's wedding.  Then the week finally arrived ... it was a week filled with family, friend and fun!!  

My friend Sarah came over with her family for a week!  We spent one day on a big outing!  We had a ball!!

First stop was Ballinatoy Harbour.  For all you Game of Thrones people you may of heard of this place!  Me .. I have no clue but it was a beautiful place all the same!

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom!!

Laura you looked GORGEOUS

All the family together

Beautiful flower girls

I think the pictures tell the story!!  I was one proud mama seeing my James walk Laura down the aisle to Johnny!  His speech was fantastic!! 

Such a great week that words cannot describe it!!  It was great to catch up to old friends and meet people I have never met before!  Totally brilliant!! 

Back to the rhythm of sewing now I think!!  I miss it hehehe!!

By for now,
