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.

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)

My Favourite Colours!

My Favourite Colours!

 

This is an example of the delicious fabric bundles that are now on SALE on eBay.  I’m in desperate need of a clear out so that I can order some new fabrics in!

Today hasn’t been too bad, tried out PAYPAL’s postage buying service direct from Royal Mail and do feel a little guilty about not visiting my local Village Post Office.

Fat Quarters packs of fabric are now on their way to Kidderminster, Montrose, Audlem, Warrington and Lowestoft!  I’m happy that these fabrics have now found a new home…

It’s getting late now and better get some sleep.
