Catching up.....


Fabrics are slowly turning into other things......


some to stay and some to go.....

mixing up the patterns is my favourite bit


and then I stare at them and plan and think.....

but alas no time for staring tonight, our #1 is going on a big cub camp this weekend and when I looked in his bag to see if he had all his equipment all I saw was a toothbrush...2 boxes of mint choc poppets.......Oreo cookies and some fruit pastilles!!!!!!! I guess I've got packing to do :)

have a lovely weekend

  1. Gorgeous crafting I'm seeing here. Typical kid eh?!Thinking about feeding the belly and not a scrap of interest in the practical things like clothing. :) Although it does sound like he's keen to brush his teeth while on camp.

  5. Gorgeous fabrics! At least he packed the toothbrush to compensate for the sweet stuff!! I've got to go through that in a couple of weeks and I'm dreading it!

  8. Just gorgeous gorgeousness as always Jane. I'm hoping inspiration will hit me at some point today.

    I think that sounds like a very good munchy bit of packing.

  9. toothbrush??? what the heck? You've raised a miracle!
    (when Alfie came back from cub camp the smell in the car when I picked him up made me retch!) (wretch?)
    Anyway - I'm giddy on Fridayness. Cleggy home tonight (he'll be asleep by 7!) and at last, the weekend is here. Glad I made you laugh with my scarf story. I nearly kept it on.
    Speak later

  10. Jane you have such a talented eye for fabric, what to put together, what to buy and sell. I am sorely tempted to add to my stash but at nearly 2000 hexagons now, I have to stop and start sewing them together or I'll end up with the king size blanket I never intended to make.
    Temptress!!

  11. Your #1 sounds just like my eldest. Instead of the usual worries that 11 year olds have about going to big school all she could think of was the gaps between food. You have to love them.
    I hope you have a great weekend,

  12. I had a duvet cover in the fabric used on your largest hoop as a child!

    I think your son has his priorities just right, the then 9 year old came home with a dry facecloth & soap & clean pants... Bleurghhh!

    He had a whale of a time
