Side tracking for a new little project!'

Anni Downs patterns I find always hard to resist.

I purchased this new pattern pack a few weeks ago from Hatched and Patched , and  the project just jumped out of the packet and  wanted me to get  started....

I have to say I really love the size of this one, as it  is really thin on the sides, perfect for packing in when travelling, and  I love that it filled with  crushed walnut shells too!

This one is for Dzintra!!!

After seeing thar gorgeous Lemon cake on her blog, I had to try the recipe!!
It doesnt look anywhere near as appetising as Dzintra's  but it sure is yummy!!!

Off to have some now!!!! 
Oh, and I used oranges instead  of Lemons!!!


Another post!!!!

No not possible for  me to do 4 in one night!!!

I have been stitching on other things too, but nothing I can show just now!!!!
But stitching n e v e r stops at this place!!!
Its finding time to take pics!!!!

And yes a new other diversion!!!! Flannels!!!!

Just how can one resist  wanting to stitch with  flannels in this cooler weather!!
Just perfect to blow the cobwebs off the sewing machine too!!!!

After a few photo uploads and emails back and forth,  Kerry, from Cottage on the Hill ( who has such a great range of flannels) (Sorry cant work out hoe to "link", hopefully computer back soon so I can come back to link to her website) has sent me this great bundle!!!
So.... What does one do adter oohing and arhing!!!!


Cut it  up in a million pieces of course!!


And then what???

Start stitching it together!!!

Then what???

Watch this space!!!!!!
Ill be back!!!! 

A new pattern!''!

Anni Downs has released another irresistible "quick and easy" pattern.
Cant wait ti get stuck into it!!!

And... Who could resist another pin cushion, just never have enough of them!!!

Update on Stitch a long...

I have been having fun stitching along with this design, but have had many "dawnifications" enroute to fit with my Japanese taupey style.

Stitching along....

Another productive weekend finishing off some blocks  of Natures Journey stitch a long that I am doing.    I think I will get kicked out of group soon as I am tagging way behind in only having
J u s t finished April blocks.... but the Dawnifications" take full blame for the slow process.

Anyway just about to start May blocks today...... Not bad seeing it is the  last day of the month, no chance of doing these in a day!

Oh well happy just plodding and it is great inspiration  to see all the others getting done along the way too.

Oh Chookyblue is having a birthday celebration this weekend, hope over to here:
To see what everyone else is up to!
