As Some of you may know I have a new job 3 days a week,well of course it is not really a job I should be calling it a weight loss /exercise plan.
Little Miss X is now with me while Mum goes back to teaching part time. This means that at the moment there will be no time for crafting on these days. The bag making is now reserved for weekends as I cannot risk a11month old in the same room as pins and scissors. Paper craft ATCs , journals etc. will now been done in the evening ,if I can stay awake.
I have had her on various odd days building up to this week ,and all went well but she was not so mobile then. We now have an 11month old who can crawl faster than I can walk (almost ) add to this mix a Black Labrador with the waggiest tail in the world and an obsession with food.
Friday lunch the best finger food, scrambled egg and cream cheese.
I have video footage of this as Wilson was under her chair and she giggled as she dropped food for him.
Unfortunately as she did not have a morning nap ,soon after lunch this was the scene.
one very very tired little girl who just would not give in
until she could hold out no longer
she did not even make it to the cot.

So here in the U K we have had our last Bank Holiday of the year ,and for once the weather was quite good , perhaps not everywhere but down in beautiful Brixham Devon it was a great weekend.
Before we went on Friday I had time to make one more bag,and I am so pleased with this one as it is made from old jeans.
This was fun to make and a great way to recycle.
Now some photos of our weekend in DEVON.
This is the steam train which travels along the coast and passes the house where Agatha Christie lived.I took this just as the sun was setting,and the view from the train must have been beautiful.
Of course the wall was full of crabbers
The tides were very high this weekend and this television superstar came in for a lick of paint.
This trawler is appearing on the SKY ATLANTIC channel on Friday nights FISH TOWN.
This is the view from my window
You know you have a house by the sea when you find crabs by the front door.
we managed to fit in a walk to Berry Head up through the woods which I mentioned in an earlier post.
I still found time for a spot of shopping
I know I am making bags but I fell for this felt one which is a vibrant purple in real life.
A local group are redesigning a flower bed in a very quirky way.
I think this painting is wonderful
