Well it seems the love has come early. I almost jump with joy when the I hear the postman coming up the path, thinking he may have with him some of my newly bought fabric. Ohooo I hope a couple of you can relate to that feeling of excitement.
Ohooo how high I jumped when my new fabric came.
I am so in love with the pretty Micheal Miller one.
And not only that but some pretty fabric treats from my lovely friend too.
One pretty I enjoyed making with some new Christmas fabric was a little Christmas Tree, and yes a teeny tiny sprinkling of lavender went in too. I really should experiment with some more Christmas smells, Lavender is a favourite of mine, so I guess I tend to use it more. I would love to know what smells and fragrances you like at Christmas, I quite like orange and Cinnamon.
Talking of pretty fabric, my lovely swap supplies arrived from the very lovely JennyFlower for the Paper Bag Swap At Contented Blog I am really looking forward to making something for Jenny, we are having a jolly olde time emailing one another. Jenny was a little nervous that I may be a little scared of her fabric she was going to send, as she had probably gathered from my blog, I am a pretty pink kinda gal. Ohooo Jenny you couldn't be more wrong, I love it and how thoughtful that you have chosen a wonderful selection of beautiful autumnal colours.
Would you like to see what Jenny sent me.
The most gorgeous handmade pretty pink fabric bag, and look at the delightful corsages. I was asked that If I wanted to, I was welcome to keep the little bag for myself. Ummmm yes. I LOVE it. Thank you Jenny.
And look what was inside, and all mine to play with and make something lovely for Jenny and then send it back to her.
I have even got some real posh velvet, I have never worked with velvet before so that shall be fun. I already have one or two ideas of pretties that shall be made for Jenny. I hope she shall be happy with them, Jenny is a very talented crafter and makes beautiful items. So I shall do my best to bring a smile to her face :)
Would you like to know what I sent to Jenny, well of course there was a little pink in there.
Good luck Jenny. Hope you didn't faint with all that pink and girlyness ;)
I am also looking forward to sending a little swap off to lovely Lisa We have been doing a little chatting as it were and thought it would be lovely to do a little handmade and thrifted swap. It is my first international swap so I am very excited. :)
Happy fabric playing :)
