Sunday Sevens #38

This week I’m treating you all to an extra photo! I meant to include this last week as technically it was bought on Saturday but I did forget! When we were in Joanns buying home things, I couldn’t pass up a fabric bargain! I bought these fabrics…4 of them are 2-3 yard cuts. They were on the sale cart for $1.50 & $2 a yard AND I got an extra 20% off 🙂 I can feel a few summery cotton dresses being made!


Sunday Sevens #36

Yey! Back to posting on a Sunday! Well, technically it is Sunday in the US but Monday in the UK 🙂

I feel like I have really got into the swing of things this week and have been quite productive!

1. They are replacing a lot of the roofing at the apartments and the building work puts Maisy off walking. She lays down every time we pass a large vehicle or a skip! Fun!


Moving Moving Moving …

We have been in our new apartment for three weeks now.  For just over half of that time we were sleeping on an air bed and sitting on beach chairs.  A little over a week ago our container arrived from the UK.  I am now sitting on MY sofa, drinking out of MY mugs and reading MY books. 😀

We left Sheffield last August to come to Mobile for what we thought would be a year.  We had packed our 2 suitcases full of what we thought we need (mainly clothes!) as we knew that we were heading to a fully furnished apartment.  The apartment we were placed in was lovely!  It was in a newly built complex and quite modern.  The square footage was actually almost as big as our house in the UK! We were (& still are) very grateful to have a furnished apartment but it didn’t feel right as none of it was ours and it was decorated how we would have done it.

Talented Tuesday Link Party – No. 27 & My last one :-(


 Welcome to Talented Tuesday No. 27!

Unfortunately this will be my last party!  I just don’t have the time at the moment to be consistent with the party anymore 😦  It’s a shame because I have enjoyed being a hostess but I will still be linking up and coming over to look at the linked up posts.

From next week, there will be 3 new hostesses!  Lindi from Love Create Celebrate , Staci from Crafty Staci & Aspen from Aspen Jay 🙂 Watch out for their posts & social media links on the party next week!

Talented Tuesday Link Party – No. 26 – NEW HOSTESS NEEDED!!!


 Welcome to Talented Tuesday No. 26!

Wow! I feel like this post is a bit of a milestone…we have been hosting this party for half a year now!! Isn’t that great?  It really doesn’t seem that long since we started the party!

That being said, unfortunately Meaghan from Cook Craft Love can no longer host with us 😦 A huge thanks must go to Meaghan for hosting over the last 6 months – I wish her well in her future ventures 🙂 So that means we are looking for a new hostess!! If you think you would be up for it, let me know and I can point you in the right direction…over to Kristina!
