well, lets start with the pretties shall we!
The week started well, with good mail
and the Good Fortune of a wonderful visitor ,
which in itself calls for cake! Right!
yes that's on a dinner plate!
I can highly recommend Chocolate Mayonnaise cake, I used this recipe, if you are interested.
a wonderful day of crafty chat, playing with curves and cake ensued ;)
there has been a lot of this ...
and yesterday, well a morning spent out shopping!
Look away NOW!
My lovely friends from Doughtys were in a town close to me!
and these Heirloom by Joel Dewbury made a dash for my bag!
I had a FQ pack of these in another colour way last year
plus a couple of rogues into the mix
the palest green was on my list since I've just made a mahoosive quilt with it as the background and didn't have enough left for a makeshift backing ... but now, the end of the bolt lives here and I can get on and finish it :)
the palest blue, just a pretty colour, the green is for backing, and the wavy stripe, oh I see this one being binding, don't ask on what yet, but it will come good I've no doubt!
other must buys were to stock back up on the white on whites which was almost depleted, 2 meters left of the last batch is never going to keep me going til spring!
so if you fancy a little shopping spree, you can find out if the Doughtys Roadshow is coming to a town near you right here!
and I came home rejuvenated and happy ...
in between more quilting, and texting, with a testing teenager,
I came in last night thinking this didn't look right ...
and it's NOT!
now, to engage a little reverse stitching and see if we can end the month on a positive note!
