Hope everyone's week is going well? - mine is certainly jam packed and non-stop but I won't bore you with the details - I'll get onto more interesting things!
A couple of books arrived yesterday and boy was I looking forward to sitting down lastnight and salivating over the lovely pages, and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I've really got into quiliting lately (well I say that, but not actually done anything yet! I've just dreamt of what I'm going to make....).
I flicked through first, looking at all the pictures - what did draw my attention in 'Stitched in Time' was the old muffin tin filled with trimmings and bits and bobs - what a great idea of recycling. I've got an old rusty tin so will put that to good use now.
Don't the Christmas stockings look fab - loving the mantle with the little trees on - simple but effective.
The dolls I think will be my first project - so sweet.
The other book was 'Quilting in No Time' - "weekend projects made easy" The placemats fabrics are to die for and of course the bolster cushion - yummy.
Providing all my orders are up to date before Saturday, I may well give something a go and I can't wait. Having said that Toby has football matches all weekend but I won't let a little thing like football stop me!!
I've also had 2 bags of loveliness still unopened until this morning which I thought I'd share with you. Yet more Enid Blyton books, 1 lovely floral jug, bud vase, and a blue jug. I was also rather taken with the picture, I thought the girl was really sweet. I might paint the frame at some stage!
Last but by no means least some pretty embroideries which I have in mind for a project, don't know when but the plan's there.
Well, that's it for now. I'll be back again after the weekend, providing I survive all the activities!
So long folks!
