So glad I didn’t make any rash New Year resolutions lol!!

...... like not buying any fabric this year!!!

I swear, I only went in to buy a few pieces of felt ………. I got a bit carried away though lol………January 10 154 aren’t they pretty ;o) … Mmmmm, choc dipped strawbs and cherries ~ and what about that delish beady trim???!!January 10 155Or do you prefer the ric rac with it???January 10 157I really don’t think any explanation is necessary …. all of these are simply irresistable … which is why they all came home with me :o)!!!January 10 158

I did get the felt too though … I didn’t forget what I actually went in for LOL …. This is what I made with it ~ I think Sophie Cat must have thought they were real flowers he he he. January 10 144These were made using Simone Gooding’s “Posy Trio” pattern that was in ‘Australian Country Crafts and Decorating’ magazine a while ago. January 10 149Cute little primrose and violets.

I won a giveaway on Wendy’s blog a little while ago and my prize arrived …. look what I got!!!January 10 131Don’t you love those little boy fabrics, and the fabulous trims!!!??! That lovely Rosy diary is going to keep a record of all my stitching hours and projects over the next twelve months :o)! Thank you so much Wendy … I love it all :o)!!!

I've put a few more designs in my Etsy Shop ~ all PDF, please pop on over and have a peek :o), just click on the button on my sidebar.

Hope you week is going well … not long til the weekend :o) ….
