This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

Stitcher's Angel Gifts have been sent...and Received!!!

This year I participated in the Stitcher's Angel project run by Helen

I was quite nervous about this my first swap...after deliberating should I...or shouldn't I...due to my course and the role of caring...I finally decided Just Do It!!!

These are the gifties all wrapped up...

little drawstring bag...needlecase...and a pincushion...
with a couple of fat quarters and some floss!!!

These have safely arrived in their new home at Marian's

If you get a chance hop on over to Marian's...

she handweaves on a loom using traditional weaving techniques using hand dyed Australian yarn with specialty yarns eg. silk, mohair, lycra, fine copper wire amongst other yarns.

I have thoroughly enjoyed making these items for you Marian...

and Thank You Helen for bringing Stitcher's the world all over together!!!


Helen at the moment is having a giveaway of these 2 patterns...

the one above is Tagged and Bagged...

and this one is Belle of the Ball!!!

Have a lovely week Friends...and it's so good to see the warm weather back with us again...

I can see plenty of Salty Blue Days ahead!!!

How beautiful... I find it amazing what all these creative minds come up with.
Salty blue days you say... we've just had our first heavy frost.
White sand, white snow... miles apart but brought together by friendship.
