Other ideas!

I finished my #scrappytripalong and I really can't wait to show it to you in its full glory, but the weather has had other ideas today... rain, snow and more of the same, so a full on photo shoot will have to wait until tomorrow - fingers crossed.


I want to get some decent shots before and after the obligatory wash and tumble; and I swear, if we wake up to more snow and a closed school tomorrow, you will hear my screams before you see the photos!  For now, I am snuggled under it and am still finding it hard to believe that it is ALL MINE!

In other news I have posted a couple of colour combo options in the Pretty Little Pouch Swap flickr pool...



I am going to make a mini Schoenrock Cross block, as part of Leila's QAL and to use on one side of the pouch.

And now I know why I don't usually give options!!  I could have just asked 'red or pink', but that would have been too simple. 

Anyway I know what I am going to do, I know what fabrics I am going to use, and shock horror they might not be exactly those I grabbed for the pictures, because it was just a thermometer; I like my partner, so I am not going to make her anything I don't think she'll like!

Along with the above, I have a To Do list as long as my arm for tomorrow, with no room for snow, so here's hoping!
