IF THEY COULD SEE ME NOW,
THAT LITTLE GANG OF MINE,
I'M EATING FANCY CHOW AND DRINKING FANCY WINE.
I'D LIKE THOSE STUMBLE BUMS TO SEE FOR A FACT
THE KIND OF TOP DRAWER, FIRST RATE CHUMS I ATTRACT.
(Sweet Charity...wonderful film!)
You'll find the reason for this lyric later!
I have done very little crafting this week, having been madly busy with family stuff, band stuff, Crop stuff, stuff stuff, stuffy stuff and stuffy noses..you get the picture?? *grin*
But lots of planning has been taking place (well, 30 minutes anyway!)
These are destined to be included in the Crop goody bags...but what are they??
These are two little linear quarters of fabric purchased recently for specific items..... the one on the left is from The Hungry Caterpillar range! Love it :)
I'm still plugging away with the quilting around the flowers when the mood takes me...which isn't that often, I freely admit. I'm definitely not a Natural Born Quilter, that's for sure......
And that's it crafting wise.
However, as several commenters told me last week, I got my Raptors all in a twist. It wasn't a falcon but a Sparrowhawk. Well, slap my wrists and send me to Aberystwyth...look, I've been making an effort.....
The brass band that I play in had its 20th Anniversary Dinner and Awards ceremony on Saturday night...it was a fun evening that held a big surprise for me....
As I've only been playing for 7 years, being awarded the Musician of the Year was really pleasing, albeit unexpected!! I'd better practise a bit now :-)
And finally, after this mad weather of ours still shows no sign of becoming a normal Spring, this has been the sight near my village.....
The combination of the mauvey blue and zingy lime green is a combo that is balm for the soul. I've had to stop and stare and just drink in the colour.
And that's it...short(ish) and sweet this week. I'm looking forward to the Anniversary swap of the ATCs - Julia let me play in her craft room so I'm a stamping virgin no longer!!! See you around :-)
