MEeeeee. it´s not everyday that you win not one but TWO giveaways!! The last time I won a raffle, competition or such was about thirty years ago. From Debbie at Debbie´s Cross Stitch I have won a $20 gift certificate and from Monique at A Half- Baked Notion, sets of her beautiful earrings. Two generous bloggers who took part in the Grow Your Blog Hop.
and have incremented my number of mini hexies, thanks to a visit to the doctor. Amazing how many hexies one can sew up while in the waiting room.
I´m not sure just what I´m going to make with these. I´m attempting to reduce my embarrassingly large bag of scraps which, high on a wardrobe shelf, wobbles, heaves, erupts and spews its contents earthbound showering the innocent victim who so unwisely adventures to open the wardrobe door.
This week I fell to the temptation of entering our local patchwork shop, really just to say `hello´ to the girls...as you understand... and bought this pretty fabric called Quilting Bee by Fabri-Quilts. Thought I might recover one of my sewing baskets.
and that same day I popped into our local sewing shop. The lady is retiring in April and the DMC threads are reduced to 1 euro. We only have DMC and Anchor threads here so I have decided to stock up a bit. Of course if at that moment I had bought a dozen or so silks, you can bet your life that I would have found the same colours in my stash, so I just came home with 5 shades to start with.
........the Super Duper lady gave me her old DMC colour chart which is SO useful. I am very grateful. Now I just have to mark off all the colours I have and note the ones I want to buy before she closes.
Thank you for visiting. See you next week.
