The Good, the Bad and the Shopping Opportunities ...

OK, let's start with the Bad ...
the bank manager may be calling with serious questions very soon! 

And move swiftly onto the Good ...

FABRIC!


Last weekend whilst I was merrily playing with paints with Angela and Tina, and wondering around National Trust properties with my man, the postman came a calling ...

and very understanding postie that he is, left me three,  yes, that said THREE packages at the back through the gate ...


I will always have the Kaiser Chiefs in my mind ... it just pops in, I can't help it!

Ruby, Ruby, Ruby .... Ruby! 


Are you singing it yet?  :)


but to calm the wild child in me, there's a little bit of retro ...

Vintage Modern


well, thanks to Fat Quarterly Issue 9 I was able to take full advantage of my 20% off coupon ...
it would have been rude not to ... right? 

So The Fat Quarter Shop also had this on sale ...


I mean,   SALE!!!!!


Sew Cherry ... delicious! 

Thank you Fat Quarter Shop, you really know how to make a girl happy!

There has been a little sewing ...


and a little more quilting, but really that's not important ....

cos I read a blog post, and did a really Bad thing!  ...

well, some may argue not ...


I tootled off with my special red card to the post office to collect these rather surprisingly heavy parcels...

in the most amazing wrapping I have ever seen! 


I mean really A-MA-ZING!

Blue on the outside, and grass green within ... you have no idea what these parcels did to some of my colleagues at work!  Seriously, there was a full blown audience for some precision unwrapping ...

I really wanted to wait ...  but egged on by my friend Sarah, I was forced to open them as soon as I got to work! 



What can I say ... more beautiful in person  than I ever could have imagined!


Sometimes you just have to jump in and take a leap of faith ...



Oh Summersville ... you do not disappoint!

Thank you Lucie :)



Oh my, it's official, I have my own fabric mountain!

Well, I think some of you knew that already!  lol

Oh and lastly, but by no means least, the shopping opportunity, as if all that wasn't enough ...

My friend Cindy, of Fluffy Sheep Quilting, now has her own on-line fabric shop

She is having a bit of a Launch party with a few friends, and there's plenty of opportunity for Giveaways on their blogs AND 10% off orders over 20 Euros. 

You must go check out the new Fluffy Sheep Quilting - The Shop, it is full of some fabulous modern fabrics, so good, that there may be more post heading it's way here!


Ooops! 

And if you are looking for further opportunities for some giveaways from Cindy, you can also visit  Hadley, Susan and Sarah too!

Happy Shopping!

Goodness me! does Lu have any left? I spent Friday evening supervising the sewing up of a FQ bundle of sew cherry - I didn't feel much for it either way but now it's all pinned up on my wall I am really liking it! Have fun drooling!
