So yes, the full time work continues and crafting is slow but my mind is full to keep-me-awake-at-night-capacity with ideas. !!!!
This week I sent off my mini quilt to Monda and I received a great parcel from Erna of blij als mij
Erna and I arranged a little swap when I coveted one of her teeny tiny hedgehogs. This week I got the best parcel .
Can you see why I fell in love and not only did Erna send me a promised hedgehog, she also sent a friend and a gorgeous toadstool for them to live under. Thanks so much Erna , they are very happy here and have a little shelf all to themselves in the sewing room.
There is also a new addition to the family this week.
This purchase has been a long time coming and I spent an inordinate amount of time yesterday pressing buttons and trying to make sense of it - you know I think if I press the buttons in the right order it might even cook dinner for me. The gorgeous Donna helped me with this purchase and has been waiting patiently for me to show some photos. I have taken hundreds, the software is loaded and I promise tonight after work- there will be photos. I'll warn you now , they will not be anywhere near as good as Donna's or Annie's. I got a twin lens kit but the other lens is arriving hopefully this week. I have no idea what it does but I guess I'll have another manual to read.
I have done some crafting this week - I made a bag for the Mirabel dolly. The dolly is sewn and half stuffed - I would love to get her finished this week, I have braces on the brain this week and want to make a little boy with a knitted vest and braces.
Also, with thanks to futuregirl -Annie and I are setting up a Craft-at-work challenge but I'll tell you all about that tonight. If I don't get moving I may have no job to actaully craft at!!!
