Anyone else getting the urge to tidy up this weekend or is it just me?

A Study In Tidiness

And no, I'm NOT pregnant and "nesting"! But there IS a cause for my compulsion that I suspect many of you will share! Let me know if you agree...

A quick silent sunday from me cos I'm busy writing blog number two!!

I have finally finished, and blogged about, my first ever patchwork quilt.

I made it completely out of my scrap fabric stash apart from the backing which I bought a double flat sheet and used.

It only took me 18 months to finally get round to finishing it after I started cutting out the squares!

I'd really appreciate feedback as I have never made a quilt before. smile

I'm having another rant, this time about communal changing rooms in secondary schools.

A Silent Sunday from me too. It's a funny tale...

Overmydeadbody, that is fantastic! (Also, noticed I have the same futon and chest of drawers as you, but they look much better with your quilt. )

Oh, and I posted a fulfilling photo roundup to cover all the things we've been making over the festive season.

I spent most of the weekend eating, and why I love Jamie Oliver.

I should be at the gym now, but have written this blog post instead, about eating and now I reeeaallly fancy a piece of my choc and banana cake- oh dear- well here's the blog post anyway:
Now That Is Tasty..

We made it through ... just ... a party of 14 three to four year olds, (plus mums and a few dads & siblings), crammed into our house for littl'un's third birthday.

This one may not be for those of a sensitive disposition - my daughter and I made a stuffed cat/thing/monster

Introducing She-la with apologies for ensuing nightmares

After the US election, I worried I would have nothing to write about. So thanks, Joe Biden, for being you.

You just put your lips together and blow, Joe .... why Vice President Joe Biden is like a BIG OLD SEXY TROMBONE.
