After a quick browse on the internet I found out what to use to clean it, a mix of 1 part white vinegar to 3 parts olive oil. Needless to say I didn't have either in the cupboard! A flying visit to the shop soon sorted that.

Just a quick make today..... I discovered the instructions to make a key ring lipstick holder earlier so had to have a go. It took 2 attempts as the first one was too narrow to put a lip salve in. I can see me making more of these - think they would make lovely little gifts.

My first finish in ages..... A messenger bag in blue, lovely denim blue shades, it looks more of a purple shade in the photo. I have been looking for a cross body bag for a while now and when I found the pattern for this I was really pleased.
Another blogging break..... I have been away on a lovely holiday and then had a week of builders in so not had much opportunity to blog.
Here's my WIP this week, a lovely baby quilt made with fabric from the Riley Blake 'Giraffe Crossing' range. It's so cute and I love how well it works with the orange spraytime fabric. The pattern by Elizabeth Hartman, is here. I just need to order the backing and binding fabric now.
I am linking up with Leigh at WIP Wednesday @ Freshly Pierced

Good morning, I thought it was about time I posted on my much neglected blog. I just don't seem to have got much crafty time lately and even less to blog, although I have been visiting your blogs, I just haven't got round to posting on mine!
I've made a few cards, photos of which I will try and post later but this is the latest project which has been on my sewing machine. There were a few set backs along the way and I think I much prefer patchwork and quilting but this was 'an itch that needed to be scratched!'
I have got another pattern in my to do pile, which may make it to the top this holiday but I definitely need to get some p & q in soon.
