Pink and green... and little bit of sweat


Found these very pretty scrapbooking 'things' - do they have a name? at the discount bin at Spotty.  Lovely lovely Heather Bailey decals and such.
They will make easy cards for people - a bit of heavy cardstock paper, a guillotine (mwhahaha!) some spongy sticky stuff for a 3d-ish feel and voila!




A package was thrown onto  my front verandah today - I was upstairs and heard the thump - and that only means one thing!!!  Pressies!!!

This was what I won from Judy of Punch&Judy

Wow - super quick postage - no mucking around with country folks!
(my photo doesn't show all the templates - I wasn't ripped off lol!)



I have big plans!!  Scrounging (is that a word?) in my stash pulled up a range I had bought quite a few years ago and had started a project of 9-patch blocks, but got bored and stopped......well, they are perrrrrfect for how I want my DWR quilt to look.

Very subtle

Very clean

Very pretty, but not girly

Very crisp

Very neutral, but not boring

This is mainly by Anna Griffin - 'Charlotte'
 I am going to have maybe a Kona Snow solid for the background and a mixture of these (delicate shell pinks, creams, taupes, soft soft golds, hints of pewter for the arcs.

Thought I should practice first!!!

Using my Curve Master Foot - I did have to sew and unpick about 5 times, til I turned the pieces over with the smaller one on top and it went - First Go (well almost - I know it's not exact on the end - but It Did Work!!)  No puckering, no gathering, no pins, just skill - I just wanted to high five someone, but instead I did a little fist in the air, all by myself.



Can you see all the little holes and threads?  

These are called Perseverance

This I must remember.
