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!!!

New Fabric...Patterns and Book!!!

I'm loving the repro fabrics at the moment...
I ordered a small bundle of fat 1/4s from Fee...they came tied up with a little ribbon...



along with this gorgeous teal colour fabric...


and this Layer Cake which I had ordered another time...
I just love the darker colours at the moment...
maybe it's something to do with the weather not warming up quick enough!!!
I'm just hanging in here for a 'salty blue day'...


Fee also sent me this pattern as a surprise...'Home is Where my Heart Is'
Such a lovely package all together...
Thank you so much dear Fee...I love it!!!

Fee has some great stuff for sale at the moment and all at reasonable prices so hop on over here and have a look!!!




I've also had a little Anni Downs shopping spree as well!!!
The new book 'Some Kind of Wonderful'...from Sarah...



Some new patterns...


And this wonderful Doorstop Kit from Jukejema Quilting Barn that as soon as I saw I had to have...

 

and it's all lighter colours but oh so lovely and homey and comforting...


just like this apron I saw...
as I sit here with a swollen knee..perhaps a good excuse to just keep creating!!!
Thank goodness Mr Armchair is here to help out with JoJo as I hobble around...

Happy Creating...Dzintra
