It is hard not to smile when the spring sunshine is breaking through the clouds. It is such a lovely time of year and makes you feel alive and ready to tackle anything. Unfortunately that for me will be a vegie patch overgrown with weeds this weekend but the promise of fresh vegies in a few months time will spur me along. Can you see my little rainbow of stitchery above? This will be a new BOM due for release in 2012 - I am working on it each evening and am loving it - I hope you do too.
I have also been working on some new projects using appliques cut from my Go Cutter - It is hard not to be motivated when you have this little miracle worker which takes the hard work out of cutting. Thanks to Sandy I now have a link to a retailer who sells them here in Australia for just $169.00 - Are you tempted? If so go HERE.
I am still searching for a name for my new "BOM" but I decided that this one will be made from Stash - I have chosen a lovely eclectic mix of Pastel Blues, Pinks & Greens. I am having so much fun putting it together.
Even the cutting table scraps are pretty. I am thinking that these scraps would look lovely suspended in a glass jar - It seems such a shame to waste them.
Talking about "pretty" look what my friend Jenny sent me last week. It was such a lovely surprise to receive this in the mail. It is a pattern in Jenny's Monthly Magazine that she writes "Elefantz Home". You can subscribe to it each month or even just buy the individual patterns. Go and visit her and take a look at her Etsy shop she has lots of nice patterns there for you to purchase.
I will be finally making my Soy Candles and Melts this weekend and will share with you the process - I am starting to worry about my Christmas list and need to make some inroads to crossing off a few gifts. In the next few weeks I will also be arranging the Advent Swap for 2011 so all of those "Advent" girls get ready and watch your inbox for further info.
