New babies, new projects..

 Oh, the excitement!  I had a parcel! Just that plastic one on the box, not the box itself- more on that later.

Now, I had been having a couple of emails about this parcel, but it arrived so quickly! It is here! and I was only discussing it with the lovely sender on Thursday, and here it is!

Lovely Ian has helped me choose, so these pretties have appeared for me to play with.

First, these lovely ducks and geese in green and black. There are eight different colours of these, but- you know I love green, ( and blue, and red, and .. and... ) so, what to put with these for a project?

 How about a lovely co-ordinating stripe? 

Yes, we can do that, too..

(also in a range of delicious colours, in case not everyone is as much a fan of green, as I am)

and then a couple of plains? just to go with the others? and make some really fun stuff? yes, we can cope with that as well!

So, some lime green and black appeared like magic too!
I cannot tell you how helpful Ian has been. 

And, guess what?  These have appeared, a lovely little collection!
These are all 100% cotton, and I have a very good idea of what I plan to do with them- but you will have to wait and see- this is just the tease.

Now- I do suggest you go and look at some of the stuff over here- I was very hard put to choose, as they have some gorgeous fabric- the ever popular scotties,  and their friends the cats, ( at the best price I have seen- do not tempt me further!- and no, they are not paying me to say this!)

Scotties Curtain Fabric and some really lovely childrens fabric, too- I nearly chose thisBeach Huts Curtain Fabric

and I was very tempted by thisRoar Curtain Fabric

but, I finally chose the fabrics I have, and you will just have to wait and see what I get up to!

( I have borrowed those images from Terrys)

Now- that box!

It contained a very special gift for my youngest. She will be 21 in 2 months time, and so a very special birthday present was in order. Following on from her sister, a sewing machine was the item to be purchased, and so, we trotted off to Bambers. The lovely Maggie let her play among the machines, and try several out, and this is what she is getting...
Again- she is on break from her studies, so it seemed sensible to allow her to play with the new baby, while she has time. So, until your actual birthday, dear- PLAY WITH IT WITH YOUR EYES SHUT!
