Mixed Up Saturday

Good Saturday Morning Ladies,

I hope today finds you well, relaxed after getting housework done and ready for the weekend.  
We had another lovely relaxed beach day yesterday,  I managed to get in and swim a few times too, I find it so relaxing.  
We haven't really got anything planned for today, we will see what the weather is like and decide.  We will go into Pals Old Town tonight for a walk round and then we have dinner booked for 8.30pm, which will round the day off nicely .

What are you all up to this weekend? 


Janet's Description:

My first offering for Mxd Up Sat is a:-
Bottle Carrier from June Tailor's 'Quilt as you Go' range.
The materials I used are all from my 'Scrap Bag'.

My second Offering for MUS is my latest Wash Bag and Cosmetic bag from June Tailor's 'Quilt as you Go'. The material is William Morris Design.
This kit also includes the Zips/and the wadding which has the pattern printed on it.

Janet you must be over the moon with your latest Sewing projects, they are amazing!!  The fabric you have used on your Bottle Bag is so pretty,  I love the colours.

Your Wash Bag and matching Cosmetic bag are beautiful,  I love the fabric, the patchwork pieces all compliment each other perfectly,  the little tassels are so cute,  the perfect finishing touch.  Its brilliant that the kit includes everything you need too.

Thank you so much for sharing your projects with us XXX

Ladies I saw this beautiful verse on Facebook yesterday and I couldn't resist sharing it with you. 

Dear Friend,

I don’t need you at your best when you come to my home.
I don’t care what you are wearing or what car you drove here.
I don’t care if there is food on your shirt and your hair is full of knots.
None of that matters to me.
I care about you.

I care about what’s in your heart, how afraid you are. What you worry about in the night.
I care about your deepest fears and your biggest dreams and I am there for it all.
If you mess up, I won’t judge.
That’s my promise to you.

So, don’t cancel me because your house is a mess and your cupboards are bare.
I will bring what you need with pleasure and I will listen to your problems without measure or malice. If you are on the floor, I’m picking you up, or I’m sitting own beside you.
You need never be alone down there.

And before I leave, I will have made you smile at least once.
That’s my promise to you.

So, save your best for someone else my friend because I want you just as you are.

That’s what friends are for.

    Love the quote 😉
    Janet, your bottle carrier, wash bag and cosmetic bag are fabulous. Love the pretty patterned materials. Thanks for sharing xx
    Love the beautiful poem ❤️
    Hoping to pop into town today to look for a dress to wear to a wedding reception in a couple of weeks time. I’ve been looking online, but nothing has jumped out at me. I do prefer to see clothing in the flesh and try on before buying, so fingers crossed.
    Have a lovely day everyone. Sending hugs to you all xxx
