I am so very pleased that two regular visitors won! Thank you both for letting me know, on a regular basis, that I am not hanging out here by myself!
You will also find a sock monkey in your packages ... well if you didn't notice already I haven't quite made Lara's yet but it will be in fine monkey shape by Monday. Could you both email me your postal details and I will get them off to you.
It has certainly been a busy week here and I think that Outlook Express may well never recover. Thanks to a girl who is one of the kindest people I have ever met who mentioned my tutorial to Craftzine which has led to mentions on One Pretty Thing and Mom Advice. There were also a few other message boards who also included a link to the smocks.
Thank you so much everyone! I have been totally blown away by the response to say the least!!! I have a few other things that I want to share with you all at some point in the future including a puppet theater (no photos yet sorry) & the tents that I used recently for Joshua's party ... but for now I have some other pressing jobs to finish before we leave for our holiday in three weeks.
This week I have perfected my procrastination skills ... achieving nothing much before midday. I have rarely gotten to bed before 3am. I have repeated this line on occasions too numerous to mention ... "please kids you have to go and let me finish this quilt!". I have given my Bernina a run for her money to the point that she bit me on the finger on Thursday night ... OUCH!!!!!!! And all I can show you for now is this ...
oh and maybe this too ... is this too much Catherine??? :)
For the life of me I am unable to settle on a binding ... you have no idea how many stripes I have in my stash ... and not one of them is quite right! So brace yourself Jenny you will be seeing me Monday morning as soon as I off load the kiddos! Mind you it is no hardship to visit you ... things are looking pretty nice across that side of town!!!!!
Our Miss Megan got to have a play with her new toy and look what she has made herself!!!!
Anyway I should go and rev up the old machine again ... thank you all so very much for your support!
Happy 'back to school Monday'!
PS I have not visited Bloglines this week ... but I will take a deep breath and pop by in the morning and make myself known to you all again!!!!
