DH has been spending long hours working on a new contract. We were quite enjoying the fact that he was home each day, even though we had no income, and we were living off savings. We have decided we are ready for a retirement of sorts, so we are now looking for alternatives to the long day, work slog.
So, here is a "snapshot" of my time away from the blog.
Back view: I used flannel for a different texture
A cute little ring I treated myself to. Just couldn't resist! :)
I bought it on Etsy
And of course, I hit the plastic when the craft show came to town!
Some lovely silk "hankies" and some beautiful cords for fibre art. I bought these and some Jacquard Lumiere paints from Unique Stitching.
This you-bewt multi-use ruler from Aussie Patches. Great for using with jelly rolls and strips. I probably would have passed it by, only I arrived at their booth just as they were demonstrating it to another shopper. It's fabulous! I know I'm going to have fun with it. :)
Then, of course, I had to stop by BeBeBoldJapanese and check out all the lovelies that Jane stocks!
I bought this cute little owl pattern, some fat quarters (already 'absorbed' in my sewing room, a bag kit (I'll show you when I make it) and some cord.
