Naughty Little Blogger

I have been the most terrible blogging person for the last few weeks.....I am almost at the end of my 2nd week of holidays and although I have been doing a fair bit of stalking, I have been very remiss when it comes to posting...............

I also cannot share any pictures of recent accomplishments (just yet) as they are for my not so secret swap partner......yes, you know who you are.....and my gorgeous swap buddy reads my  posts (albeit few and far between)..........sooooooooo, you'll just have to take me at my word that I have in fact been keeping myself amused.  It has been lovely bouncing emails back and forth to my Sisbabe and establishing a new blogging friendship!

However, I can share some piccy's of some gorgeous fabric.......a few posts ago I may have mentioned some fat quarters of Etchings that I just HAD to have.......then DD no2 fell in love with them and insisted I utilise them for her..........well, of course I really had to replace them with.........


Aren't they just so nice and feminine without being prissy.........the pattern has plain white fabric in the blocks, but I'm hopeful that the metreage under the jellyroll won't blend in too much.....if it does it will still be lovely.

Now, on the first week of my holidays I had a little trip to Wynyard to the Fabric Parcel..........ohhhhhh deeeeeeear, its such a lovely lovely lovely little shop.......


Whilst I was there, these little beauties caught my eye.............they are from a range by Anna Griffin (never heard of her until I fell in love with these) called Fleur Rouge........the colours are probably not shown well in this photo....but are they not lovely.....and just look at the patterns on the front 2 fabrics.......sheer gorgeousness!!!!  Now of course I have absolutely no idea what to make from these babies.......I would certainly welcome any suggestions.............:)  Until then I'll just have to fondle and gaze upon them and probably cry when the rotary cutter makes its first cut!



The old cat Jack has been very happy to have his Mumma home for a few days - like most of the quilty cats he does enjoy sitting on a pile of fabrics at my sewing table in the sunshine..............he's not particularly helpful at looking down the lense for me though.....

...........whereas this baby girl.....shes only too happy to oblige with a smile......she just wishes she could pile onto my sewing table too!

So that must be the end of todays post........the weather in Tassie is a little dismal today - drizzle but not cold - just dampish.  Best go play in front of the Janome for a short time before the kidlets return home from school.............Happy Sewing Ladies xoxoxo

Lovely fabrics there my dear....I could see a large scale patchwork bag with shoulder handles like the mini bag on my blog.
