Hush hush ..... shopping and a finish....

This  is very hush hush...... so this is as much as I can show for now, stay tuned.


I joined the Jigsaw club at Patchwork with BusyFingers hopefully I can get started this week.


My parcel contained this terrific folder with 2 of Sue Daley's little books, hexie papers, templates, needles, cottons and fabric so no excuses not to start.


I was very naughty buying this wonderful fabric pack from Threadbear Patchwork and quilting, I have the pattern for "Miss Matty's Parlour" quilt so looks as though I have something else to start.


I needed a fat 1/4 to make a small project so off to "Sewer's Delight" I went and they were having a sale so my fat 1/4 turned into 4 metres of fabric, the hanger and bobbins...... ho hum I'm so weak I know.....


Now to my finish, Sandi...Teresa...Norreen and me have been making the "Mouse Pincushion"  pattern by "The Birdhouse" and it has been a lot of fun to make.

Well almost a lot of fun.... I was adding the crushed walnut shells today and yep I spilt them everywhere... even in my cuppa, the coffee table, my chair so that slowed me down but I did get it finished.








Its very cute and useful but I think it will look great with my pincushion collection too.

Beautiful pincushion. There is going to be a lot of lovely show and tell if Natalie comes to visit Sunday Stitchers.
It's great to see I'm not alone in the 'no self-control' department when shopping. I think it needs to become a recognised aliment.

lovely purchases there Helen, must have missed the fat 1/4 unless it was hiding behind your meteridge.

Very cute pincushion. It's hard to pass up a sale. My fabric store had a 50% off store and so I walked out with more than I had intended to buy.
