After the Show

Life always seems a bit flat after the excitement of meeting lots of stitching chums at a big show. So I have been looking at my purchases in detail and planning how I am going to use them.

I am pleased with my goodies, and have to chuckle when I think about these threads Dale.... I know Sarah has been out to Perth and stayed with you, so I just had to buy these from her stand at Festival of Quilts. It certainly is a small world. These are well travelled threads. Love the simple colour choice with a multi...... have lots of plans for this combination.

I bought this silk for a certain bag challenge, and cannot decide which colour to use. Could not decide at FOQ so bought all 3.... still cannot decide! Help!

Was bought back to reality yesterday with another plea from the grandchildren, they had used up all the pages in their sketchbooks...... so could I please come and help them make some new ones. So we made simple Japanese stab books. I allowed enough paper for one drawing a day for the rest of the summer holidays that are left...... I had a phone call this morning. They enjoyed the painting and collage we did yesterday so much. The sketchbooks are nearly full as a result. Best laid plans. However I did leave the instructions with their parents, so over to them.
