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)

Fabric Garden Goodness

Busy little bee today, cutting, organising, planting ready for the weather!  Spring is definately here :O)

A quick visit to the village Post Office :-
:: Holsworthy, Devon ::
… winging its way at this very moment :O)  This afternoon I’ll be scanning and photographing more fab fabrics ready for Etsy {see our button on our FB page} and Ebay, not forgetting I’ve some crochet to work on and get finished.
Ah, lovely the sun is coming out :O)  So I’m off out for some fresh air…

Just a wee change from cutting fabric for the Paintbox Quilt Along that I’ve been working on.  I love a little bit of Crochet, so I’m sketching some colours, planning the size because this maybe blanket like and checking out how much of Rowan Kidsilk Haze is in my Stash.

Colours so far – Jelly, Trance, Candy Girl, Blood, Majestic, Putty, Liqueur, Dewberry, Marmalade, Meadow, Hurricane and Mist.  Lovely colours with some brilliant names!

Yes, I’m going to admit it now – I have Wool Stash and Fabric Stash and I wondered today how many others have the same addiction :O)

My space will be a little different for a day or two as I’m likely to start cutting more fabric for the Quilt Along…  So what’s in your space today?  Now you’ve seen mine!

Tonite, I’ve added a few more fabrics to Ebay :O)  Busy cutting Fat Quarters again, but this time a new bundle has been added to Etsy!  I’m trying to split up the ranges, as there is so many to choose from.  Its a bit more organised, but as I’ve found rather time consuming…

Check out Country House Crafts Shop on Ebay.  Toodlepip!

After a first visit to Hobbycraft at The Fort, Easterhouse, Glasgow on my return I took a detour via the Post Office in the village!

On the Roll Call today :-

Orpington, Kent = Tring, Hertfordshire = Finchampstead, Berkshire

… a few different places this week.  Some of which I had to check the spelling :O)

On Sunday, I was indeed entertained and wined and dined with Bovril and a Pie that I couldn’t really finish.  Not my cup of tea so to speak!  It was a game well won, with a few points missing from penalties…  have you guessed where I was yet?
