The first big news was that myself, Cindy and Hadley got the partner assignments for Mouthy Stitches done, sent out and the stalking has commenced. I have been given a brilliant partner and can't wait to get making for her. With that in mind, and knowing who I was making for I sat here at some stupid time this morning and ordered more zippers, just in case I didn't have the colour I really wanted for my make. (You never can have too many, can you?)
My next news was that I received my last two purchases of Heather Ross fabrics. I found it very interesting shopping around for HR fabrics because the prices being charged are so varied and then the cost of shipping! Goodness me, how can one seller on Etsy be asking $12.95 to ship a piece of fabric smaller than a FQ to the UK but another can do it for $10 less? It certainly makes decisions when shopping easier. I saw the same design FQ of HR for sale by two different sellers and one was asking twice as much as the other. So, my advice, if you decide to do a little fabric collecting, is to shop around! My last two shipments I got for just over £5 each, including shipping. You can have fun for a very little amount of money when you try.
|The three on the right I got from one seller and|
I had to have it just for those cheeky little gnomes.
|A mini tote for each of the girls,|
which they quickly decided were the perfect size for dance shoes.
And a stack of charm squares for each of them too.
I love that wreath stitched on the door!
|And for me some amazing HR scraps, plus another bird scrap which I do not have.|
I could sit here and rave about that HR Christmas tree piece!
Love it sooooo much!
|Yoga girl - love her, while somehow hating her at the same time.|
And liberated goldfish. Well, that's how I think of them as opposed
to the fish in a bag.
|Birdies!! Those orange ones are gorgeous.|
(Sorry, Katie, but no need to go looking for any for me now. Thanks!)
|This was designated Baby Bunny weekend.|
For that Baby Bunny got a sash and her own pillow.
|Helen made whoopie pies.|
Baby Bunny found where she wanted to hang out for a while.
|And Emily gave her a treat,|
but I am not sure if bunnies eat bears.
It has taken me two hours to write this blog, whilst doing other tasks gong back and forth between all things demanding my attention. I think I am going to reward myself with a glass of wine. I have been ever so good lately but I do feel I have earned it this weekend. Life, despite the occasional moan, is good!
