THANK- YOU ALL FOR YOUR WONDERFUL COMMENTS. IT'S REALLY HELPFUL WHEN DESIGNING THE STITCHERIES TO KNOW WHAT YOU ALL ENJOY STITCHING THE MOST.
FINALLY GOT THE "GIFT PACKAGES" ( WITH THE GOODIES INSIDE) INTO THE MAIL FRIDAY. THANK-YOU TO THOSE WHO WERE ABLE TO HELP ME WITH INFORMATION ABOUT THE NEEDLE TOOLS. MARIA- I NEED YOUR ADDRESS SO I CAN POST YOUR THANK-YOU PACKAGE.
WENT OVER TO OFFICEWORKS ON FRIDAY- AND BOUGHT A STACK OF THESE! (ON SPECIAL).
WHICH ARE FAIRLY BORING TO LOOK AT- BUT I'VE BEEN TRYING TO THINK OF STORAGE SOLUTIONS. THESE ARE GREAT FOR A NUMBER OF THINGS- THREADS, FABRIC, BUTTONS, BUCKLES ETC. THE DRAWS COME IN DIFFERENT SIZES!! ISN'T THAT BRILLIANT! THEY COST ABOUT $15 FOR THE SET.
NOW THIS IS THE BEFORE SHOT OF THE DRESSER IN MY "DINIO" (DINING ROOM / STUDIO) WHICH IS FAIRLY MESSY ....
BUT LOOK NOW...
OOPS!! THAT'S STILL THE MESSY SHOT- BUT UP CLOSE.
TRY AGAIN. "BUT LOOK NOW..."
AREN'T THEY BRILLIANT?
SO.. SOME VERY HASTY DRAWINGS THIS MORNING!
DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO PAINT OR COLOUR- SO YOU HAVE THEM IN BLACK AND WHITE. BUT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE RECIPE IF YOU WISH, AND KEEP IT IN YOUR BIKKY FILE.
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE RECIPES- GOES WELL WITH BARBECUES (SOMETHING TO FINISH UP ON) OR WITH A CUP OF TEA OR COFFEE. IT REALLY NEEDS TO BE SOAKED OVERNIGHT IN TEA- MY APOLOGIES. SO HAVE IT TOMORROW AT WORK AS AN "AFTER AUSTRALIA DAY" CELEBRATION!
NOW FOR THE SPECIAL AUSTRALIA DAY COMPETITION!!
JUST LEAVE A COMMENT SAYING:
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE TOPIC TO STITCH.
HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES:
THE RED BROLLY GIRLS
I'LL PUT ALL THE NAMES IN A HAT- AND DRAW OUT TWO WINNERS FOR EACH PATTERN.
YESTERDAY (SOB) WAS THE DEADLINE FOR THIS PROJECT TO BE IN TO HOMESPUN. Sorry Catherine. I've been stitching madly- but this is it so far.
Notice all the gorgeous Rural Jardin fabrics! Aren't they Lovely.
MY FAMILY ARRIVED LAST NIGHT TO STAY THE WEEKEND- I'M AFRAID I WON'T GET A HEAP DONE.
ANYWAY- IT SHOULD BE IN THE JUNE EDITION OF HOMESPUN- ALL READY FOR YOU TO STITCH. IT'S THEIR SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EDITION.
THIS IS THE SECTION I'M STITCHING TO GO ON THE BOTTOM. WELL- HALF OF IT-HALF FINISHED!
Off again last weekend for the Family Birthday Day. January seems to be THE month for Birthdays in my family. So we decided to have the conglomerate birthday- a Bar-b-que in the Mist. It was a tad cold but the open fire brightened everyone up.
A great place for open fires and grill your own steaks!
I managed to get in a bit of shopping!
Here you'll find an Aladdin's store of gorgeous stuff- all the new Moda fabrics, Amy Butler and Kaffe Fassett. Plus goodies from Moda Homewares-throws, cushions, trinkets and all things to brighten your home!
And believe it or not that building to the right- is a COFFEE SHOP!! Who could ask for anything more? Coffee AND fabric!
If you get the chance- call in and have a look- well worth it.
The lovely Tracy from A tinkers Cart- www.tinkerscart.typepad.com rang yesterday to chat about our upcoming day of fun and frivolity- and stitching. Yes, mark those calendars- 19th June, dead of winter in Townsville! (No sweat this time!) Do you remember last year with Anni and Natalie- what a laugh!
You can stuff it with all sorts of sewing goodies- as it has heaps of pockets inside!
And how many of you managed to make the second project??
This Year- I'd like suggestions! What sort of projects would you like to see on 19th June at the Tinkers Cart? Even if you're not coming- you can make suggestions.
Thank-you to everyone that gave me information on where to find those gorgeous little sewing tools.
Maria has given me the name of the person who actually makes them! But, as promised- all leads will be rewarded. So if those of you who gave an address and phone number send me your address (for privacy you can e-mail it to: firstname.lastname@example.org ) I will post you out a "thank-you" gift. (Small).
