All Set

I have a very busy day today so I thought I would get prepared early for...
I am joining all my friends over at Cheryll's. If you want to join in click HERE.
My arm and hand a feeling so much better and I have several things in my sewing pile for tonight.
There is a little stack of stars that have been waiting for their rusty bells which arrived yesterday, another redwork block, a mini quilt stitchery. I will decide tonight. I also have the Tim Tams as promised and my favourite cup ready for my cuppa. Hope to see you there.
Yesterday I had to buy some fabrics for a project I have been asked to do and so off to the fabric store I went. Happily I found what I 'needed' and was making my way to the counter.
But then I tripped over this and it fell on to my pile accidently and rather than embarass myself by declaring I didn't know it was there I just bought some. Does this ever happen to know being set upon by bolts of fabric.
So I have given it a home and secretly love it.....I feel a flurry of redwork "Frosties" coming on.
I must dash but I thought in wishing you all a lovely weekend I would leave you with another quote from my little book "Moments of Pleasure" by Paul Wilson..
"Relax and Enjoy it - Accept small pleasures as they happen. So much effort goes into trying to influence the way things happen, and so little is spent in actually appreciating them."
I wish you a weekend full to the brim of small pleasures.

Blessings Michelle xxx

  11. Glad the arm is feeling better. Just had the same problem as you with the fabric. Needed some black, saw some other so got 25 cms of three fabrics. The lady in the shop suggested I got one more 25 cms then that would make it easy for her ( 1 metre) Didn't take me a second before I had that other 25 cms.

  12. The fabric that came home with you is lovely. What a nice pile of provisions for this evening :) Um, where do you buy those rusty bells?
