Chickens and Canvas

I have been internet shopping for Christmas presents. Such fun! I get to sit here in my jammies and spend money without a guilty conscience. hahaha

Anyway, I had a brilliant idea for presents this year. I am giving lots of people on my list, a chook! Yep, you heard right. A chook, chicken, hen ~ of the feathered variety. Real live ones, too! Now before you think I've gone mad (well madder than normal) click here, then click on the Smiles section. It takes a little while for the video clip to upload, but it's good.
I have been buying other things for presents, too. Got some good discounts as well, but I can't show you them, in case peoples are watching ... shshshshsh....

Of course, old habits die hard and I have found some things for myself. But I've only bought absolute essentials. Things I needed. Honest!
Like these lovely light weight cotton canvas fabrics. Ordered them from Shanghai, (with some trepidation). Aren't they great? Wonderful for bags. I seriously want to get into bag making next year.

Merry Christmas (in Shanghaianese)


  1. The fabrics are beautiful, when you make things with them, you must show some pictures.
    Arrrr Internet shopping... Hubby cut my card up, so I cant shop anymore. He said I could spend more in a day than he earns in a month!!! xxx
