Paulina

...and the troupe trickles in....
Some lovely soft fabric I ordered came a few days ago and my fingers have been itching to get started in on it, I have shown great restraint though and not touched one square inch of it until I have finished a couple of other projects that I am working on, now if it had been chocolate that had come you would be staring at a photo of an empty candy wrapper right now!It has been a pretty good week for getting stuff, these two lovely books also came in the mail, I will be having a look at them this weekend, apparently our weather is going to be foul so it definitely is a stay indoor weekend. I am really started to feel very spoiled, as if the fabric and the books weren't enough I also won a wonderful door prize! This wonderful little pincushion so lovingly made by Jen at Jen Maruska Design was also in my mailbox today, I am just thrilled, my old pincushion was really starting to look a little ratty so now it's time to retire it and use this lovely new one, thank you Jen, it is much appreciated.

Well that's it. I am outta here, see you all next week!

what a great week - the fabrics are just beautiful, and have such a good finish to them. I am currently entertaining a little monkey running around with my riding hat on!

I'm so happy you like the little pincushion. : D

I'm enjoying your elephants in tutus - they're darling!

Can't wait to see what you make with all that lovely new fabric!!

Paulina is another cutie - your fabric is so pretty. Where do you order your fabric from? I have always thought that it is hard to order fabric without actually seeing and touching it. Are you happy with mailorder fabric? Hope you enjoy your weekend even if the sun isn't shining.

I so enjoy all your little creatures. I am going to start making dolls and creatures in the new year. It's my resolution, and one I'll keep.

I can see why you chose to buy the books, the covers are very eye catching. Congratulations on winning, the pincushion being a perfect prize for a perfect stitcher. x
