Last Sunday I was attending my very first Christmas Market in UK. Organised by Little Birds Market for all sorts of crafters at beautiful Sloans Ballroom in Glasgow. Pretty chamber event I have to say, not too much stalls but all of them with lovely things.
On my tiny round table: Christmas cards and decorations as well as a few lovely purses I was sewing recently and gift bags made from beautiful Paperchase paper.
Little Birds Market organising more Christmas Markets in Sloans during December, so if you’re interested don’t forget to check their website.
Have a lovely Tuesday.
To be honest with ya, we ate this dinner yesterday… which means Halloween Eve (not sure if day like that exist, but for this post purpose it does). But it looks cool and very Halloween-y, right?
What’s in it:
As we have no problems eating leftovers from previous day it was easy to just use the rest of delicious roasted chicken. Chopped the meat and fried with spring onion, mushrooms and honey gravy (left from previous day too). We both love cheese so I layered a good amount of French Brie, Goat Cheese and Parmesan between the chicken stuffing. Placed in ceramic dish with lid and cooked till pepper become soft.
You can stuff your peppers as you like of course. One is guaranteed: it will taste lovely :)
Have a spooky evening everybody.
I’m mad with the lovely purse pattern which I found of So Sew Easy blog a few weeks ago. Here my newest purse I made yesterday. As I do not like to waste anything – that’s apply to food as well as to old, unwanted, damaged clothes – for this project I used my old, wool jumper. Actually the sleeves from the same jumper I used a while ago to make this nice hand/forearm warmers .
Navy blue zip & grey wool working very well.
Love this Paisley lining.
Wool & cotton great duo.
I like the unisex look of this bag.
Lovely 100% cotton lining and zip was purchased on Amazon. I would like to say that the zip came from Plush Addict store and I will order their zips again because they are very good quality, and cheap (through Amazon) as well.
Have a lovely day,
I have to confess something…. I LOVE EGGS and they are 99% of my breakfasts (omelettes, poached, fried, boiled) but sometimes I do prepare eggs for a lunch as well.

Now, when I finally have my sewing machine with me and a bit of spare time I can make new, lovely things. Such as this cosmetisc bag which I found over on So Sew Easy blog. You will find there a PDF with pattern to cut out and You Tube video where Debbie is showing step by step how to make this bag. I absolutely love what the ladies doing on So Sew Easy blog so be sure to check their site for lots of beautiful crafts!
This Christmas I’m going to sew a few of them. They will be lovely gifts for my beloved ones.
