Work is over and I am officially on holiday for the next two weeks - woo hoo!  So I had a little holiday checklist to sort out over the last two days:

  • Clothes washed - check!
  • Eyebrows waxed-check!
  • Toe nails painted  - check!
  • Hair dyed - check!
  • Forehead, ears,neck and scalp dyed bright purple - check check check!

Why is it that no matter how much Vaseline I slather on before the dying process, I always managed to dye everything in the general vicinity of my head?? - No smutty remarks required Charlotte!

So before the Kidlet and I make our annual trip off to my parents in Ireland, I had one last urgent sewing job to do.  Another good friend from work is deserting me to go travelling and wanted a case for her netbook that reminded her of home.

I went for a subtle reminder when planning the design....

Showing my newly polished little stumpy toes!
I left the back plain as asked because she has the idea that she will get everyone she meets to sign the back.  I had palpitations about anyone coming near one of my cases with a Biro!!

My machine is now all packed away and my hand sewing is sitting waiting to be packed, along with a finished table runner for my Mum.  More pics of that will be coming.

One last thing before I go, the lovely Sarah from Narcoleptic in a Cupboard is hosting a Japanese Charm swap.  If you fancy joining in all the details are here.

Now just a evening out with the LMQG to meet Tula Pink to get through, oh I lead such a hard life ;-)

See you all in a week


  1. smutty comments? I don't know what you mean!
