Elderflower and tote bags

I've promised myself for years...well, a couple...that I would make Elderflower cordial. Tonight I have. A friend gave me the recipe and the citric acid and I added lemons...a lot of sugar and the elderflowers. So today after school, I walked home picking the white flower heads...even got some from the school playground! so hopefully tomorrow i'll be enjoying this...

As for my sewing, I was up very late making a start on the nursery commission, that I've told you about. I can't share pictures yet, I want to wait until it's all finished. I will leave you with a couple of picture of some new bags I made last week.

new makes and new ideas

I've had a little time between the park, walking the children and board games to do a little making.
I've tried out a few new ideas......

these are some new glasses cases but someone gave me the idea of gaget cosies, for iphone and the like. What do you think?

And a little something to celebrate.....My husband, who said in the run up to christmas, "I don't want anything home made!" , has asked me to make him a ipod case.....a very manly black one (with no flowers or hearts) this space!
