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!!!

Friday Night Sew-in!!!

After seeing this logo around the blogs...I kept going back and back to it...

and finally decided...Just Do It!!!

A Friday Night Sew-in hosted by Heidi...

the idea being that you get comfortable...put on your pj's if you like...

put on a cuppa...

settle in and do some sewing or craftwork...knitting...scrapbooking...

whatever you wish to do...and then blog about it on Saturday!!!




I think I'll either do this one above...


or this one...a Table Runner by Barrie Sue Gaudet at Bareroots...

this has become a WISP (Work In Slow Progress)...

my New Year's Project for 2009 LOL!!!

But have only come this far due to my TAFE course (which I have put on my other blog My Dolce Vita) amongst other distractions...including starting new projects!!!



Whichever one I decide upon...I'll be sure to be armed with plenty of chocolate...

and maybe even be tempted to watch that fabulous movie Chocolat with the gorgeous Johnny Depp and the delightful Juliette Binoche (I love her shoes in that movie)!!!

I think I'm going to have fun!!!
One Stitch At A Time
"Take your needle, my child,
and work at your pattern--
it will come out a rose by and by.
Life is like that...
One stitch at a time,
Taken patiently."

I will be thinking of you when I am in my pjs sewing. Eating chocolate is a good idea.
Have fun!

Chocolat, one of my fav movies... I even have the song from it on my playlist.
The PJ sewing party sounds like fun and I know I'll enjoy checking in to see what you have accomplished...
I'm with Kath there would be no sewing completed with that gypsy Johnny on the TV in front of me.

chocolat is a fantastic movie, and Johnny Depp is oh well you know.... my knees are turning to jelly at the mention of his name.... I too have joined the friday sew-in, thought by the time I get started on friday night, for you it will saturday morning.... but I wont be watching J.D. thats for sure, as no sewing will get done. lol.

It is a lovely idea, and the accompanying chocolate would be a definite must!
