I’m a gadget girl so when my Blog Friend Maree pointed out the “Follow by Email” gadget, I just had to have one too.
So those of you who would like to know when I’ve updated my blog, just by checking your emails this gadget is for you too.
Easy Peasy…..enter your email address, follow the prompts and ‘Bob’s your Uncle’
Just because I’m here, I thought I have an almost mid week blog update, this must mean I am feeling like my old self again, although still coughing!!!
The bag is a replica (only different fabric) of Fabric Origami Bukuro I made at the Brother stand of the Brisbane Craft Expo recently, Using a special fat quarter and a bit of scrap black I created the bag, then wanting to use up every morsel of the special fat quarter I made a coat/jacket for this empty jam jar. With just a smidgeon of it left, just enough for a yo-yo and a fabric tube or two, I plan on tarting up the lid . After that effort I did require a nanny nap!
You may wonder why my stitching is being stored in my refrigerator? Well, I have had a bad experience with iron-on transfers in the past, I prepped several stitcheries and put them away until I found the time to begin……took them out of the storage box, and most of the design had disappeared! It appears that heat does that to them…..not that it’s mentioned on the pattern pack anywhere that I can find!
This time I thought I would be a bit clever and put this one in the fridge between stitching sessions!
While blog trawling tonight I found this tutorial at Quiltsalott for a Biscourn Pin Cushion. I’ve seen them recently and always thought how difficult they looked, this tutorial has smashed that misconception. Who would have guessed it required 2 x 4 1/2” squares. Some of which I had prepared earlier….. Now it needs stuffing……stay tuned for the finished item on my next blog post!
There is another reason for a blog update……….drum roll please…….Brooklynn has a tooth!
Oh and she’s sitting up! Sorry no photo of ‘The Tooth’ apparently it’s only just cut the gum!! I haven’t actually seen it yet, but I’m certain it is the prettiest little tooth to go with the prettiest little girl!
Not that I’m biased at all!
Back to my stitching, or maybe off to bed….. as yet undecided.
Thanks for visiting,
