So whilst I sit here, a little delicately, I'll show you my wares from yesterday.
First there was Liberty. The lady in the fabric department told me that they will no longer be stocking the quilting cottons; they only had the two prints that I bought, and the brown (loads of brown!) left. She was not even sure if they will be doing further collections just to be stocked elsewhere!!!
|Bit of a shocker of a picture, sorry - the sun was so bright, and now it is too late to move off the sofa!|
I did buy an iron-on 'H', then a trip to the stationary department, and a tin of pencils had to come home with me.
We headed to Covent Garden as I wanted to take a look at a Fossil bracelet that I had spotted online; it was in the sale, so now it is mine too...
I love the London Transport Museum shop; and just because it would have niggled me not to, I got an anniversary mug; I am the same age as the Hammersmith & City line...
I got the tape measure on sale in Cath Kidston, as I have a bad habit of slicing off the stoppers so they retract right back inside, so now I am forearmed; and a last minute pick up of the US quilting magazine I also got passing through Victoria station last time, on the way home from Susan's.
I have to admit that it is a rare day that I have both the time and money and actually find things I really want. Success!
So that's me; no sewing to show you, but I have plans; plans I have been really good about not getting on with until all my other 'To Do's were done. I have 3 sets of Bee blocks to make in July, and the key fobs to finish for FQR, and then it's me time. I have skipped this weeks Patchwork Please! project, as I have an idea for a moneybelt-apron, and I want to make it at my own pace, and with the makes for kids coming up, I will skipping those for the main part; so the pressure is off.
Apologies in advance, as there will be a bit of deja vu for the regulars over the next couple of days, as I have my Fresh Sewing post, an FQR introduction and my second quarter FAL round up all to write this week, but I am sure I am not the only one; so no time to get into mischief, what with swimming x2, Cubs, a recorder concert and the school fair to fit in around work too.
I wasn't going to mention Google Reader, as I never used it, but hey if you do/did, don't leave me hanging!
Let the long week begin folks, deep breath xxx
