Bet you didn’t even know I’d been unwell.
I’ve been in a bit of a dark hole recently, not really unwell but definitely not myself. Maybe it is the premenopausal blues or just sick and tired of being sick and tired!!
Whatever it was, it’s gone, and I am back!
A little on line shopping certainly helped in my recovery! Some felt, threads and linen for stitcheries from The Raspberry Rabbits. I have to say the service and attention to detail with my order was spectacular! I highly recommend them so go and check out the site and see if they have something that grabs your interest.
The Book Depository was the scene of my next purchase. This Tilda’s Studio is a really beautiful book. Even if I never make anything from it, I think it is a book I will always love to browse for inspiration.
Some rainy weekend days may have added to my ‘funk’ but we didn’t let it keep us at home and a leisurely drive in the country for Greg and I was a nice way to keep ourselves busy. We checked out some Antique Shops and although nothing was purchased, it was interesting browsing and exploring their wares.
I have managed a few ‘finishes’ this round robin came together nicely and I enjoyed the machine quilting too. To the girls who were a part of this project, thank you for your really lovely work. It’s not always the case in swaps, so I am thrilled to say the least.
This little table topper began life as a very small stitchery, then I thought it may work as a bottle cover, but it just wouldn't play nicely and kept growing……so here we have a table topper!!
These cup cake stitcheries are destined to become Bottle Covers….let’s hope they are of the same mind!
Corrie had a birthday, so a chocolate cake was in order…..this one did include the eggs!
Card classes brought out the paper creativity once again. I do really like the back ground stamp on the left hand card.
This mess yielded the little purple cutie on the right! I call in a no pencil no pin doll. I chose fabric by size from the purple scrap box, cut the shape using my pinking shears, and this is how it looked in the end! Brooklynn was the recipient.
Fathers Day last weekend, saw us spending the day with our darling granddaughter, oh and of course our lovely children…..they are obviously not as photogenic it would seem.
Leah and Corrie have bought their first home, and as luck would have it, it is directly across the road from our place! I just love having them so close. Here was a girl breaking her neck to move out of home and show she was ready to take care of herself, and now if she got any closer she would be back in her old bedroom!
Here is the darling girl, looks like she’s walking, but no, just practicing!
Thanks for visiting!
