Weekend Doings

Hi there, things are really busy around here at the moment but have manged to do a wee bit of pottering about in the Craft Room this weekend, the weather has been awful and we still seem to be missing summer - am hoping it will appear sooner than later.   On Thursday evening I NEEDED to go to the supermarket to get our wee doggie some dog roll that only this one supermarket has.......(spoilt thing) BUT how fortunate that it is right next to SPOTLIGHT hehe........and the below fabric just happened to jump into my arms .........

Of course its purple and green - what can I say it spoke to me, well yelled really "take me home, take me home" hehe  well thats my story and I am sticking to it.

Yesterday I tidied up the craft room LOL really tidied it up, ready to make another mess and of course thats what happened today ROFLMAO.......

So here is the start of something new, a blank piece of fabric on the design wall first thing this morning and a whole bunch of "stuff" all over the cutting table.


then the mess really started to happen Oh My and what a mess it is in now there is material and paper all over the place - but a satisfying afternoon indeed, auditioning fabrics and cutting out and standing back to see how it looks - A very enjoyable afternoon.   

 Now the below pics of the design wall with the fussy cut flowers on it is just sort of being interviewed at this stage have used steam a seam so can reposition them wherever or whenever I want has been fun but I think I need more fabric hehe .....not going to have enough of the one I want to use as I brought it in Australia and cant get it here in NZ so a wee buy overseas this week might be in order.....

  9. Yep they are all so lovely, you choose well, can't remember seeing any of them at Spotlight here.

  10. Oh Aunty Sharon, I now know why you said the fabric yelled at fact, I thought I heard it yelling across the ditch at me, but at the price you have to pay over there, maybe I'll just print a pic of it onto fabric and make that a pocket on a I don't think I'd have the patience to make the wall hanging, but oh my gosh hun, it's looking fantastic already. What was the name of the fabric range you got over here? That was from the wee quilt shop right? Hugs Naomi
