Catching up

No matter how hard I tired, I couldn't get the camera to download pics this week, then tonight....bless it, it performed. So here is the summary of an op shopping and fabric buying week.

My new favourite dress.....it actually stays up because I can pull it across the top really tight, not like the elastic stretchy ones (I have cut this pic extra skinny to try and hide crap behind it- didn't work)

today I scored a few more 'snack' containers. I love these and use them for many things, have eneough to move them to craft room now. For $8 a bargain.


A funny bag, Modapelle brand, green is my fave at the moment, and a girl can't have too many handbags, right?

I popped into GJ's yesterday, where I was very restrained, I bought a new ruler as i'm not liking my 6" wide one, I like 6+1/2" better. And this pattern screamed 'house frock' or casual dress, I love it.



Also this week, my fabrics have arrived from the US, for the back of my quilt. I've fallen in love with black and white fabric, and all this cost me about $60. They are from here, here, and here
. I'm so happy as I got some Jennifer Paganelli Sis Boom about 3 yrs after the rest of the range, to tie in with the quilt top.

As the computer is slowing down terribly, I'll add a few more fabric pics later.
Tomorrow is the big b'day and thanks to all the b'day wishes, there are a lot of us Novemberians out there! I'm off to Tinniegirl's for Thornbury Craft Bonanza, yay! First I'll check out this market, stop by and say hi, or if you haven't been, now's a good time!
Must go and get some sugar, or we'll be cakeless tomorrow....
