Roll Call so far…

April 28, 2010

… a few different places recently!

++ Hilsea, Portsmouth ++ Tilehurst, Reading ++

I better get a move on, not much fabric on Ebay these days…  No sales on Etsy yet, for some reason I don’t do so well on it?  Is anyone else like that???

Fat Quarterly E-mag

I’m always on the lookout for a great wee read and it was through a Fat Quarter Swap with Katy, Brandie, Cynthia, Laurie and Rebecca @ SewMamaSew that I came across the rumours of a new e-mag – Fat Quarterly.

Today is the launch day and I rushed over to their Etsy Shop this morning and immediately ordered a copy.  I wasn’t disappointed!  It’s a mixture of Articles, Advice and great Patterns from the world of handmade.  Did I mention some amazing Giveaway’s?  Oops :O)

Check it out for yourself at Fat Quarterly.com.

… a lovely article about Fresh Figs author Joanna Figueroa who is their featured artist.

The thing is, its all that lovely Creative Vintage fabric!  It makes me smile :O)

I’m sure a few of you will agree with me on this :O)  Keep stitching everyone!!

Kaffe Fassett

… as if I’ve nothing better to do these days!  But it will use my Kaffe stash up nicely, really it will :O)

Its a simple enough design with not too much colour for those who fear colour combinations.  I’ve always thought that yellow is one of the forgotten colours, as its not seen too often in quilts for some reason!  Yet personally I’ve produced 3 or 4 projects using the colour, mainly given as gifts to friends :O)

Yellow Potpourri is perfect for beginners and a great way to introduce fussy cutting.  If you’re not sure what fussy cutting is checkout Google.  Check it out quilt folk!!

Nice House

Home to Roost

Back to the grind so to speak!  A weekend of out and about keeping my other half occupied and fed, well fed he realised after some nice Homemade Meatball Bolognese yesterday.  Got to keep my man happy :O) He was indeed.

… and the Roll Call for the end of last week :-

++ Marple, Cheshire++Lochmaben, Lockerbie++Cottingham, East Yorkshire++Worthing, West Sussex++

Chances are that most of these may have arrived safely, Royal Mail are doing alright so far.  I’ve just a few International ones to get done today.  Their sitting on my to do list right now, in a lovely pile of freshly cut fabric as I write :O)

The binoculars have been out, spying on all those birdies that have appeared recently.  Lots of them, the feeder isn’t emptying so quick these days either!!  Gus says its down to them nest building, although we have seen some fledgling Dunnocks already.  We even have a local Woodpecker giving us some calls in the local forest near our house!

Love Birds

So the week is starting to brighten, the sun is out and I better make a visit to the Post Office.   Get my motor running, toodlepip :O)

Ebay Fabrics Added…

April 4, 2010

P & B Textiles Bundle

I’ve added this lovely little fabric bundle to Ebay this evening, one lucky person is going to get the last of this little lot!  I hope it makes its way to a new home shortly.

The problem I have is that when it comes to end of rolls its difficult to let them go, especially as they look so pretty.  So in order to make room for new fabric, I have to get myself into gear and get listing.
