Our first balloon returns!!!

I popped into the school office after school today and was handed an envelope with not just one BUT seven balloon returns. We released 147 balloons on Friday and a few of them managed to make their way to down to Dover. So if anyone lives down that way keep your eyes peeled for a green or white Macmillan Cancer Support balloon and if you find one send it back and you could win a prize.!!!!

Last Friday (25th September) I organized a Macmillan Coffee Morning at my children's primary school and we also held a Balloon Release just thought I'd share this photo with you all and let you know that we raised just over £410, which I think is fantastic!!! We were inundated with cakes and scones on the day, especially scones as Year 4/3 had to make them for homework the night before!!!
We shall see how far our balloons travel over the next few weeks. Last time we got as far as Holland!
I hope that all the Macmillan Coffee Mornings that you went to were great fun and raised lots of money for this worthwhile cause.

Monica from MyFunnyBunny is holding a Mother & Baby Mega Giveaway
This is what it says on her blog -
"To celebrate the birth of my baby girl Mylie I am hosting a gigantic give away!!!It will also mark put us back on track after our "give away holiday" because of moving and the birth.We are collaborating with many other companies & crafters to bring you the biggest give away ever!!! So if you want to enter, keep checking our blog for updates!We will be posting the items that are to be included as they arrive!!"

So I decided to make a nappy holder in this really cute retro baby fabric and even tried out the button holer on my latest sewing machine! I took the photos before I did the button hole but it went like a dream and I added a large white button.

There's plenty of room for two nappies and a pack of travel wipes and a couple of nappy bags too! And it could even be used later on when you need to carry spare pairs of knickers and pants for those "Mum, I can't wait any longer!" "oops I did it!" moments.

Obviously with a workshop full of fabric (and I mean bursting at the seams full!) you can choose your own fabric design colour etc and it doesn't have to have a baby theme, if you would like your very own nappy pouch then please just contact me at they cost £5.95 plus p&p.

And don't forget to follow Monica's Blog to take part in the Mother & Baby Mega Giveaway when it starts!

What A Great Idea!!!

Whilst checking out what's been happening in Blogland I'm came across a brilliant idea from Sew Scrumptious. Louise's mum will be 70 this year and Louise has set herself the task of making, collecting, buying and possibly begging 70 presents. They don't have to be expensive just thoughtful!!! Louise is asking for ideas, links and a bit of encouragement to make her complete her task.....
I've already added a few ideas and now my brain can't seem to think about anything else, I should be in bed but as Tompom is feeling poorly I'm putting off hitting the sack as I can see me getting up alot tonight..poor little thing!!! Tompom that is, not me!!!
So if you have any bright ideas that will help Louise reach her goal pop over to her blog and leave a comment!!!
my ideas so far have been a photo of her mum through her life in a collage and a coin from 1939..

Right I'm definitely off to bed now see you all later x
