Random Things Today

My sister suggested I might like to actually finish something I have started. So I cast on a Baby Surprise Jacket.
I managed to finish something - a new bag that will be in the shop.
Eva has become a napper, the girls were like this and being my first I just thought this was how it was, then I discovered that there are very knowledgeable people who can help with this. They will be getting a phone call.
I had flashbacks when I saw some Guides selling these on the weekend. My sisters and I were Girl Guides and we used to be given boxes of these to sell. My mother dreaded this. I remember one year on a driving holiday up north eating packets of them in the back of the car. I'm sure Mum thought this was great. We got rid of them all and we were quiet for the trip. I hadn't eaten one since until I bought a packet for the girls. They have a chocolate layer now and taste better than I remember.

Aah yes...the wonderful, resourceful Ngala!!! I called them so many times with Chloe, that I'm sure they knew me on a first name basis. Good Luck!!!

Oh, I remember selling those Biscuits too - I hated guides. My Mum forced me to go and I used to feign headaches to get out of going. (we had a very nonchalant leader)
As for the napping - my first did that too. We went to sleep school and I learnt the "patting/ssshhh, method". I got so sick of patting I let him scream himself to sleep! He is a brilliant sleeper now!! Yeah.

Your bags are beautiful! I am new to sewing - rec'd a machine from mother-in-law so I'm surfing blogs to learn and get ideas. I love your choice of colors.

I've never heard of Guide Biscuits

I'd nearly forgotten how hard it is when they just dont or wont sleep ...two of mine were terrible sleepers, I had a friend come to stay one day who was a nanny, she had us sorted in no time at all.
bag looks great by the way.
