My little bit of this big World

Cool wheels

Oh what a trip, tonight we have had a trip in a new Rolls Royce
This model is a Wraith, stunning car
Our friend works for Rolls Royce, he works on the interior design and was given this car to try out tonight, I can't explain the thrill on sitting in this luxury. Looking out to the front on the bonnet and seeing the famous flying wings.
Silent, smooth and loads of power and so much beautiful leather inside.
 Hope hubby wins the lottery soon. 
Oh well back to real life
 I am making the bunting, for both Logan and Finn, 
Dawn did the letters for me, all I have to do is iron them, 
trim the top and attach to the ribbon.
I love the bright primary colours chosen for the backs. 
 This was a request by the boys mum, I am enjoying making them. 
 I was given this book to read
hope to start it over the weekend
The film is on my list to watch.
I have been feeling a bit low in the past few weeks, I think it's just the time of year when the clocks go back, I don't like getting up in the dark. 
Monday was my birthday, not a big one, that was last year, I did go to work and everyone was lovely, we had loads of cakes. Later after work we went for an Italian meal with youngest daughter and SIL. I have a few good gifts, hubby got me a huge pair of tailor scissors, and daughter got me a solitary bee house.  
Going for the trip in the car tonight was unbelievable, the interior roof had stars twinkling, the seats were huge but wrapped themselves around you. When Alex put his foot down the car glided to the higher speed, the whole ride felt without effort.
I had a giveaway and I have a choice for the winner, both of these have been in my work box since I completed the stitching, I can make them into cushions, or just post to you if you want to frame them, I'm sorry the glass in a frame would not travel to where they need to go, so please chose Carrie Rose or Grand Marquoir click on the links to see more photo's. I love to see one of these go to a nice home. 
 Oh who won, 
Congratulations Barb from Wicked Stitcher, email me your choice and home address. 


  1. What a treat taking a trip in a Rolls, I had one for my wedding but I think that's the only time I've been in one. I've read A Street Cat Named Bob and the sequel and enjoyed them both very much, I'm looking forward to seeing the film now. What a fabulous giveaway prize, I'm sure Barb will be thrilled. Hope you had a lovely birthday.

  2. It was my birthday last Monday, too. Hope your day was as happy as mine. blessings

  3. Belated birthday wishes to you xx
    I know how you feel , I feel low this time of year.

  4. They are amazing cars......very luxurious. It is good to know you enjoyed the fun ride.

    Happy belated birthday, they do come around quickly don't they.

    I believe it is quite common for people to feel low this time of year. My husband and daughter both suffer with SAD......perhaps you do ??

    Have a good weekend.

  5. I've read 'A Street Cat' and thoroughly enjoyed it, I hope you do too.
    How lovely to have a chauffeured ride in the Rolls. Did you know the flying lady has to be kneeling in cars in Saudi as she has to be lower than the driver!
