Fiona was the brains behind our Wombat Stew Secret Santa. I haven't revealed mine yet (and it's killing me because it's AWESOME!) as it is still on it's way, but I did receive mine :) Marieka stalked me well, she even knew that I call my
I LOVE it! Even the back is sexy :)
Fortuitously, the night before Marieka posted my gift I asked the girls where to buy new rotary blades online. Marieka said that she could pick some up (along with some new quilting needles which I desperately needed) as she had a voucher and was going to the post office anyway. I'm totally goofy, I hassled her for her paypal details not cluing in to the fact that she was sending me a secret santa package ;) Thank you Marieka! I love the cover and I really, really, really appreciate the needles and blades!!
Moving on to other recent stash additions, I recently purchased some yardage to make myself some summer dresses. I'm not sure when I'll get around to it, but now I have some GORGEOUS voile (Notting Hill at that!!) with which to play! In fact I would be happy just to roll around in it LOL
I am fantasizing about buying a FQ bundles of Notting Hill but then I think maybe a half yard bundle and then I die at the price. So for now I will be content with the voile and continue to fill my cart and not check out ;)
At the same time I ordered a couple of solids. I really have to check the invoice before these are absorbed into the stash as I have no idea what they are. Black, grey, blue and lighter grey. I'm sure they all have fancy names like campfire ash and stormy tempest ;)
Because it was a sale and I had to fill a flat rate envelope... I also splashed out and purchased two charm packs. Cuzco (DIVINE!!)
and Cherry Christmas.
Cherry Christmas will be set aside for next Christmas (it arrived a few days before Christmas when I was winding down on sewing and winding up on packing) but Cuzco is sitting nearby waiting for inspiration to strike. I really want to make some cushions for our new house (let's not think about the fact that it's 14 months until we'll be moving in!) so I might use it for that. It is making me think lap quilt for the sofa, but that is what Colour Therapy is for. Maybe lap quilt for Little Miss? Once we're back in Australia with cold winters they will need more than one quilt on their beds, so it might even become a quilt for Little Miss... Hm, lots to think about there :)
