Recent makes

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all keeping well. So my Instagram account is fully functional now and Matt is helping with the Facebook account (I cant seem to remember my password for instagram to link the accounts together🤦🏽‍♀️). So here are some makes I have recently completed.

My sister in law challenged me to make a peg bag. First attempt is pretty awesome!
I love this idea I found on Pinterest. I used my new Cricut Joy for this project.
Super heroes are not just for boys.
A teeny tiny bauble for Darcey’s teacher, who is having her first baby this year.
And a bike bag for Marnie. Personal use only.

I definitely feel more confident on the sewing machine now, but those bigger makes will have to wait. I’m really enjoying doing the bows, but still working on how I’m going to clip boys bow ties. A few ideas I’ve had haven’t quite worked yet.

In other news. Darcey is really enjoying her lockdown school and her report this year has, once again been amazing all round. Exceeding in reading and writing, expected in maths, but I’m sure since she has been home schooling, we have changed that to exceeding too! We found out she is going to be a Jaguar in Year 2. Not sure if the whole school is going with the big cat theme this year or just her class, but I like it!

I did have a go at doing a video tutorial for making glitter baubles, it didn’t go down too well. Note to self: don’t do videos with two children in ear shot. It doesn’t work. Back to the drawing board on that one. 🤦🏽‍♀️

Lockdown continues…

Hi and good morning from a sunny and boiling hot Bedfordshire! I just wanted to check in with everyone and just update on what I have been doing recently. We’re now allowed to see one friend outside our household, so obviously I have met up with Horan twice recently, at a social distance of 2 metres of course. We talk about all the random stuff, such as how long are elephants pregnant for? All the important stuff, obviously. And we walked past the field where a herd of cows practically chased me away a few weeks ago! Have I mentioned that yet?! It was hilarious, yet terrifying at the same time! Darcey was clinging onto my hand her for life and tried (but failed) to stop herself from crying in terror, Marnie said she never wanted to see a cow again in her life and Matt couldn’t stop his nervous laughing! A great story to tell the girls when they’re older!!

I have been researching stuff about the underactive thyroid I have, because recently I have been losing a lot of hair! Turns out I didn’t really take anything in about it so will visit the doctor when lockdown is finished. I don’t think it will be right for me to go in and see them right now, considering what is going on. I miss my long thick hair so much! As much as I hated it in the summer, I miss styling my hair other than putting it up in a bun or ponytail all the time.

I’ve now got an Instagram account for Bear&Moo ( @bear_and_moo_ ) and I’m posting more photos on there with the makes and crafts I’m working on, so head over and send some love, please and thank you!

I’m hoping to get some ‘How To’ videos on the go soon, so do also look out for those.

Also, have you noticed a little refresh on the site? Revamping the font and colour scheme is easier on the Mac rather than the mobile app.
