Going places...

New car, begging to go on a little road trip yesterday, we ended up in Chichester - a treat for me!

I bought fabric!  I needed some for a new Bee, I needed some for an idea I'd had for my sister's birthday present and I needed some for my sanity.  Eternal Maker to the rescue.

I now have Kei dots, only FQs, so don't shout at me...


I now have some voile, flannel and more herons...


And the postman also finally showed up with my last Christmas present from my sister c/o Amazon...



It looks brilliant, and I am thinking I need to make one of these soon, 20" zipper and all...


 Maybe for when I have somewhere to go in June?!

  3. 3 goes at word verification, it's gone a bit weird, really hard to read!

  4. I've got ten super long zips in bright blue if you want one. And this new word verification is going to cause me to stop commenting it is so irritating and hard to read. Blogger needs to make it vaguely interpretable!

  5. Lovely buys Hadley and know you will do something amazing in the new bee. That book looks cool too - off to add to the evergrowing wishlist!

    PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE GET RID OF THE WORD VERIFICATION. I`M BEGGIN` YER.

  6. I have that book on my mental wishlist.

    I also want word verification banned. I often comment on your blog and have navigated off the page before I've realised I have to scroll down and do the word verification. I rarely go back to re do :-( and the new verification thingy is no easy to read....

  7. We're off to a wedding near Chicester later this year, I might have to persuade Hubs to take us on a detour on the way home...... I think the herons might be worth the nagging!

  12. Sanity shopping, I like it! Given that you've started so early you can make me a bunch of stuff for June too, 'k? ;o)

  13. I have no idea where my comment has gone - instead of the usual 'your comment has been saved' I got 'sign up to blogger'...I'm going to save this one before publishing in case it goes the same way!

    So...oh yes...I think it's a good job I don't live closer to E.Maker! I love your new fabric and I'm looking forward to seeing lots of lovely makes from your new book. Good luck with wrestling with the 20" zip! (Hope no word verification goes smoothly...)

    Fingers crossed...

  20. I ran into the double word verification all over blog world this morning. One word is fairly easy to read and the other is squinty!

    But when I turned off the verification late last year, I got my first spam - had to turn it back on. Maybe Blogger will makes these words easier to decipher soon.

    Love the Zakka book. Author has a good way of combining fabrics in a fresh way. Lot of scrappy goodness projects too.

  21. I love the book, and I am sure you deserved the new fabric! As well as needing it.

    ReplyDelete

  33. LOL, your "don't leave spam" comment warning is pretty funny, I see that those folks that go here before me had some influence on you. I love that book and what lovely fabric. Always fun to go somewhere in a car that is new to you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Um, why are you BUYING books like this? You should be writing them, then you can tell the silly old tax man to sod off!

    ReplyDelete
  35. That book looks like great fun. I can't wait to get these UFOs out of my way so I can play!!!

  36. I love the pouch with the zip. Have you seen the tutorial that Ikatbag did on sewing a continuous zip - looks totally doable and much neater for a pouch like this one.

    Can't wait to see the finished product.
