Ooooh it’s been an exciting week here in Leeds! Our city has been picked to host ‘Le Grand Depart’ for the 2014 Tour de France and the first stage is literally going to be cycling straight past Bully Bus HQ!!!!!! How cool is that?

It’s been snowing too – Just as the weather forecast predicted. Very chilly to say the least 😦

So, a little bit more stitching……

Have you guessed what it is yet?

OK – So not much more stitching……. but a little bit more of a ‘reveal’ of my mystery project.

And more playing with the new sewing machine and educating myself to embrace wonky lines and frayed edges……

A delivery of some rather lovely vintage seventies florals for ANOTHER project!!!!!

I love these prints!

And finally, a little batch of tissue cozies using assorted VW themed prints – Perfect for popping in your bag or keeping ready at hand on the dashboard of your favourite bus or bug 😉

If you're going to have a runny nose you'll need plenty of tissues - Just the sight of one of these cute cozies should make you feel better in no time :)

I’m off to play in the snow now with the bullies of the bus – Keep Warm and Happy Crafting Folks! Au Revoir 😉

There were some great rides at LVW Fest as usual, with a significant representation from the water cooled community. Lots of old favourites and a few new ones thrown in for good measure.

Here’s a few that caught my eye…….

Pristine paintwork on a gorgeous monochromatic splitty.

Grrrrrrr!

You can’t beat a classic Caddy! And I was drooling over this one 😉

Nice paintwork…

Naff content but I think most of the boy racers would vote it rear of the year (AGAIN!!!!!)

Another drool worthy option…….

This time it was Mr Other Half’s turn to get excited: He misses his souped up Caddy sooooooo much!

Lulabelle – Compact catering from a classic Splitty 🙂

This one makes me smile because it reminds me of many hours spent handling an angle grinder on my early bay 😉

Ratty Late Bay

Peekaboo!

The water cooled community was very much in evidence at this year’s show.

I love this!!!!

Scoobified Caddy; Yum!

All lined up and looking for new owners……..

Looks familiar! Billy the Bulli sporting the latest hi-tech waterproofing solution – chromework that caught the eye of many a passer by judging by the amount of people who stopped to take a photograph 😉
