Sunday was a brilliant day, so the bikes went on the bike rack and we were off to Stanwick Lakes. The sky was a beautiful Azure blue and it was reflected in the lake.

I am so glad we took the opportunity to get out and about because I think that was the last time we saw anything of the sun for the rest of the week.
Now Monday was one our 'All days' at Highampiecemakers, and time to get down to making some small bits and pieces for Christmas. I decided to make some coasters for wine glasses and gift tags for special people. I don't usually get much done on Mondays...well, other than a good chat, so to get two items finished was quite an achievement for me.
|8 coasters and 11 gift tags|
Baking day on Tuesday, and its the first time I have made a coconut cake in years. It was very tasty, so think it might be a regular bake.
|Cute don't you think?|
I have also been playing with pincushions, and this site has some really great patterns and tutorials. The hardest thing about this one was getting a plastic pot that was suitable and not full of body cream.

|It really doesn't take long to get them together|

A friend came over and we made these cute vinyl project bags. The pattern is from here and is super simple...... I say that, it did take us all day to get the first one made, but once finished I just knew I had to make another.
|Filled ready for my Hexie project.|
|Some things just can't be thrown away|
It was framed and has been on the walls of many of our houses, but this house doesn't have loads of wall space, so I took the embroidery out of the frame and it has sat waiting for a new life........ what do you think?

Two more purse frames have arrived in the post today, so guess I might be making purses over the weekend. Yeah!
