Could you resist the temptation?


This is about the extent of what I can show you for my recent crafty ventures.  This is a friendship swap block I made for Gloria in our guild (who, by the way hasn’t blogged for quite a while, busy little bee she is….needs a good prod along!!!! LOL)

Here are the ones I received from my group….


I’m really liking the browns and blues at the moment so I was after those colourings with curves….something I’ve never been too game to try….until now!  Don’t they look great??

and finally, I can say I’ve picked up my new baby…..

here she is…..


…and that’s about how far I’ve got too!  I never thought I’d be able to hold back on playing with my new girl, however I’ve been a bit time poor lately, and she’s just had to wait!  I did have a little sneaky look though…..


…but I didn’t want to get too close or my report cards would NEVER get started!!!!  So I’ve had to resist the temptation to play…….could you resist????

But I have been readying myself with lots of goodies from here,  like these brights 099

…and more blues and browns.


And my favourite store sent these my way at between $8-10 a metre……could I resist, I ask????



And Wendy sent these Fossil Fern gifties in the parcel



so I can make even more goodies!!!!!  If you get a chance, take a look because she often has wonderful specials…this one was a free fossil fern FQ for every $10 spent…..oops, now you know my secret!!!! LOL  Go for a visit, and tell Wendy I said “Hi”!

I must get to and visit some more of you in Bloggyland…..have been very absent lately, and missing you all dreadfully.  I will be back real soon….holidays are only 5 weeks away (but who’s counting!!!??)

Sugary hugs

XXX  Wendy :O)

I don't think you will have time to sleep on your holidays with all the sewing projects you are lining up!

I do not think I could be as strong as you. A new machine to play with, those report cards would have been a tad late. I can't wait to see the beautiful projects you make with her!
