I am supposed to be going to Patchwork Class today.   But really I can't be arsed. 

What I really want to do is just stay home and make more cards so that I have plenty of stock.

So... until I make up my mind... I will procrastinate.

I have to go into Manurewa some time today to get Stew his pills (he's a type 2 diabetic)... so maybe I will do that this morning and then come home and work oops I mean PLAY with my cards!  LOL

ABOVE:  and how cute is this???  Coco kept on jumping up trying to get on my lap, so I popped her onto the computer desk by me... she was really confused!  She's so so adorable, and so so NAUGHTY!  My house is like Fort Knox now.. barricades all over the place to stop her getting into stuff and chewing it all up!  I can't wait until she outgrows THAT phase.


I surprised myself and ended up going to Patchwork Class!  It was nice too... so I'm glad I went.  I then went into Manurewa and got Stew's medication, popped into the Hospice Shop to kill time and found this:

 ABOVE: It's a really lovely lightweight dress that Amanda can wear to work while she's pregnant over summer!  I got it for FREE as it needs the catch at the back to be sewn back on!  How awesome is that then???  lol

ABOVE: The bag I almost finished in class this morning.. I only have to do the strap now.

Right, time for lunch...

I have had a busy afternoon... making cards, punching out stars (probably get a blister or two).... and tonight I will be doing the same!
Stew is due home in a minute so I better get dinner ready... left-over spag bog mixture with ?  Maybe toast!  lol  God, I'm a lazy tart!

End of Day: and I have had a truly lazy evening!  My laptop had been playing up, but a phone call to Steve had it fixed in no time, so I've been sitting on me butt in the lounge watching tv and browsing the net.  Bliss.  nite nite.

    No doubt about it, Coco is a cutie~Pie! Darling photo of her! She just wants to help mom!! Your bags are all so pretty on the right! Really cute! ...debbie

  2. My money is on the fact you will do CARDS!! haha my pussycat does that but sits on my keyboard.

  3. Coco and Jo's bella would make a great pair. Both still at the naughty stage but ever so cute, not that Jo thought so when Bella managed to escape out the gate from our place on Saturday and she had to go onto the street in her nightie LOL. Just as well it looked like a dress :) We thought our place was still "doggie proof" from Tarsha but Bella is half her size and of course can get through smaller gaps LOL
    Those cards and bags are just gorgeous. :)
    Have fun :)

  4. ohhh Coco is such a cute puppy...she always seems to be smiling :-)

  5. She gets away with being naughty as she is so cute. She would be a good girlfriend for my Vince. Martine x

  8. O o O ! That little bag is so sweet! I just love it - it makes you smile right off the bat.

    That cocoa sure is growing ! She is so sweet ! I am so glad that you got her-where is her buddy????

    I re-read your note on my blog about that dratted machine and I started laughing. You are sooo good ! I told myself I wish I was rich -you could be my therapist and I could pay you BIG bucks and we both could be happy !!!!!!!! LOL
    But , THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Sorry to bug you again - but - if you have any of that little critter fabric you could make the pups either collars or those little bandanies That look like scarfs for pups. Then they would be in style when you have to go to the vet. ;)
