...along with other crafty bits.
It happens every time, the last week before our big Exhibition and Sale, barely a quilty thing to be seen around the Cottage, today there was lots of hand embroidery, crochet and knitting going on.
Courtney with her huge ball of wool was the first spied, well, right in front of the sign in book so thats logical...
Pat and Sue were working on workshop samples for our next workshop, the first week after the Exhibition we will be making lotsa scrappy charity quilts, looking really exciting.
HOWEVER....there was one totally amazing quilt to drool over.
Outside in the carpark, came across the perfect 'Bee' truck for the 'Bee Man', (a.k.a. Lorraine I's Darling)
Oh...and talking of bees, did anyone see that report on bees and the way they like to sleep, curled together holding each others little feet. Blown away by nature.
And for the last...a little bit of crazy.
I come across the weirdest things and ideas on the net, some so way out your eyes just bug reading them, some so funny you giggle for days, and some you wonder "well, what the heck?, it might work" and this is one of the latter.
To my embarasement I did not keep the site I read this on, it was one of those gals who love to find a simpler/cheaper way. Now if you love Pinmores (as I do) this might pique your interest, as it did mine.
The unnamed gal (sorry, cringe) warned about pin sticks as the erasers taper to a point, however, I can testify that pinsticks can happen rather easily even when using Pinmores.
These little suckers are cheap cheap cheap, $4.53 for 50, so if they work, will let you know. Thing is, got all these little round hollow bits left over, any ideas???
