IT AIN'T WHAT YOU DO, IT'S THE WAY THAT YOU DO IT -
AND THAT'S WHAT GETS RESULTS
Thank you to all those lovely deskers who gave me such lovely support for the card making last week - I really appreciate your thoughts and input. I have really enjoyed playing with colour in a different way.
There's lots of potential in this week's post - that's a posh way of saying that I'm pondering over a lot of stash but haven't made a start on anything yet!! :-D
Margaret Glitter&Glue was telling me all about her church's amazing work with schools in Uganda - she makes bags to be given out to children there. Well, I have quite a lot of fabric in my stash so thought I'd like to get rid of some in the nicest way possible. The box on the left contains the furnishing fabric, whilst the right hand one holds the linings. Since this pic was taken I've cut out quite a few bags but will show you next week.
Ah, there are some real old favourites there, brought from all over the UK. If I see a fabric I like I buy it, simple as, you just don't know if or when you'll come across it again. We're only talking about a metre or two, more if it's a seriously good bargain. I'm quite ruthless and unsentimental about using these, I don't hang on to things for long (with the exception of Mr LLJ of course!!)
Talking about Margaret, she did add to my fabric stash last week:
Beautiful fat quarters from a craft show, with some lime I got in Hobbycraft.
Some pieces from her stash - glorious stuff!
And some lush ribbons - they will ALL be used Margaret, have no doubt!
Elizabeth (The Silver Scrapper) had promised to send some papers for my card-making attempts and it turned up a couple of days ago with a beautiful card. They're really funky papers, thank you!! I'll enjoy using these!
Everyone has been asking if we felt the earthquake that was centred about 30 miles away - NO is the honest answer!! G and I were walking on our special beach when it happened and we didn't feel a thing or hear anything. Friends of ours thought a bus had crashed the noise was so loud - maybe the sand changed the frequency of the shock waves, I don't know. Or maybe we were concentrating too hard on watching the amazing land and kite yachts.
Just breezing along the tide line - it was fun to watch. All those birds in the distance are Oystercatchers, there seem to be loads of them on the estuary at the moment, obviously lots of shellfish and worms in the sand.
Two having a race with the Gower and Worm's Head in the background. Perhaps we were too distracted to notice the earth move - if ya know what I mean!! :-D
Have a great week xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
