Some bits and pieces...

Haven't blogged for a while; no particular reason...just been busy.
Firstly the Giveaway from a week or two ago for the Peter Walsh book ,'It's All Too Much'; The lucky winner is Linn, so if you'll email me Linn with your postal details, I'll get that in the mail for you.

One of the buttons on my blog is for Friday Night Sew In (FNSI) which is organised usually by Heidi but this month her cousin Crafty Vegas Mom (link for sign up) is organising things. The idea that all over the world, women are organising to just be able to sit down after dinner on Friday night and work on a project which doesn't actually have to be sewing. Read all about it over at Crafty Vegas Mom's blog and maybe sign up
 :-) ? At the moment my plan is to sew up some of those teddies that I picked up from Sharon the other week.

Now earlier this week I wrote about getting out my old school uniform and hat and I said how I was planning to take it to a gathering (just 5 of us) of old school mates last Saturday. So I put the uniform in a shopping bag and waited till we were all sitting on Ali's deck and then I pulled out the dress. Should have heard the squeals of delight and disbelief! They couldn't believe that I still had such things stored away...I think it is a fluke that I still have them. None of us could  probably  fit into the uniform (well Maybe Chris could) so we took photos of each of us holding the dress against ourselves...Talk about laugh...we did plenty of that!

I love it that you kept your old uniform! When we had Wavell's 50th, it was amazing what people had in the back of the cupboard, including the guys.

Oh how fun! I bet they were surprised! That had to be an extra fun afternoon for the five of you.

I love the idea for women all over to unite at home and do something. I think this is brilliant!

What a great photo montage of the 'girls' posing with the old uniform~almost makes me see everyone as they were years ago!

Have a great day!

How cool that you kept your old uniform. My uniform was orange and brown so I got rid of it as soon as I could :-)

Hi Maria, Thanks for the book I can't wait to try some of the ideas out! I will pass it forward when I have finished reading it.
