Sunday, June 6


Today we celebrated my nephews birthday. We headed over there first thing for a lovely morning tea with close family. We all had a lovely time, the girls love playing with their little cousin and he adores them too. Because it was his birthday there was a present to be made so I spent all day yesterday making him one of these. But my version is called the Travelling Train Track.

He is a big fan of Thomas so although he didn't play with the track, the trains were a hit. I think the track will end up being a hit with his Mum when she needs to take something with her to keep him entertained when they go out. The only thing I did differently is changed the car track to a train track but later I thought I should have changed the car on the front to a train but it was already sewn on and time wasn't on my side so not this time.

I also wanted to show you what I won from Megan at Simple Pleasures for the Sew Mama Sew May Day giveaway. Thank you Megan for my beautiful prize it arrived safely and will be put to good use the next time I go away, it's just perfect.

How was your Sunday? Did you have nice weather to enjoy the last day of the weekend? Thanks for coming by lovelies:)


  1. Yay you! I wish I had a car caddy for my bag. I am always caught without toys when we're out for dinner or the like. Looks great! xo m.

  2. What a lovely gift! Yep... I bet Mama will be very thankful for that next time they're taking toys with them on an adventure. Truly ace Catherine.

  4. Hi Catherine, Another amazing project. You have done so well, I'm sure as he gets bigger your nephew will love playing with your gorgeous travelling train track. Our boys use the dark edge of our lounge rug as their car road and/or train track. Lol.

    Hope you have a lovely week.
    Cheers, Deb
