So glad the Easter Bunny came today ... Jess and I had a blast tearing around and finding all the yummy chocolate eggs early this morning :o). Now, since we're both (probably??) a little old for the Easter Bunny to call at our house, my DH is "Easter [Hus...]bunny" in the JoyPatch, a job I think he quite enjoys ....besides, the perks are pretty good too!!The scales are going to be groaning under the extra choccy weight we'll all be carrying after the Easter weekend LOL!!
Part 2 - More Yumminess, but this time it's fabric!!!
I can't wait to play with this .... it's my new Jelly Roll .... "Aviary" by Moda - It's the prettiest line I've seen in a long time. I simply LOVE it!! Isn't it just absolutely gorgeous!!??! I just love the pinky creamy pastel shades ... sooooo girly ;o). I've got some yardage and some charm squares on the way and when they arrive I shall be turning them into a quilt!!! :o)
Part 3 (final part) My Sewing Room
I was over reading Karen's blog at Cotton Spice and she's shown us her sewing room, along with a bunch of other designers studios and she's asked to see ours in return ... so here's mine!!! The description is above each pic..... Firstly here's "Bertha" ... my faithful Janome 6500, love her to bits ... she sits on the Horn cabinet that my Dad gave me years ago. Beside that is a little cupboard made by my dear Dad originally for my DD1's Barbie collection. Well, she's long grown out of that so now it's where I keep my pellon, buttons, coloured threads, calico and many, many other bits and pieces. You can't see it very well, but on top of the little cupboard is a chest of drawers made out of the drawers from a Singer Treadle sewing machine cabinet.
This one is my cutting table, which also has my ironing board and the shelves above house the computer and loads of other things that I have to have within reach when I'm "working". Under the table I have two sets of drawers for fat quarters and scraps.Here's part of my stash .... it lives in the bottom of the bookcase so that I can browse whenever I feel the need ;o). Above the fabrics are a load of patchwork books and magazines ... I must go through them one day ;o).........
Here's inside my cupboard ... with more books ...and my precut fabrics ... Parts of where I "work" are organised chaos, I know :o). But I love my little sewing room, it's my sanctuary :o).
Well hopefully you managed to get through to the end of this post so I'll now wish all of my bloggy friends a very happy Easter ..........
