Fabric from Harvest Moon by Buggy Barn and Itsy Bits arrived last week.  Finally I have some gorgeous country checks.  It's embarrassing to have country fabrics, but hardly any checks. But no more.  Itsy Bits is a lovely range too.  Tone on tone with just a little pattern.  Nice.

While I spent an afternoon photographing them to list on my website, my little shadow opened his eyes and looked back at me.  "How come you're taking all these photos and NONE of me" he said.  So just to make him happy...............

I've also listed some of my fabrics on sale.  They're a good price and I'll be adding more as they sell.

There's a few changes happening on my website.  I've added a few buttons and rearranged others.  I've still got a way to go, but it will be easier to navigate your way around when I'm eventually done.

Be Creative Country

I'm off to "Be Creative Country" in Dalby which is a women's camp organised by the church.  There are several enticing workshops on offer, but my little group of ladies are going to make our Kindred Spirits bag.  I have a feeling we're going to have a great week end.

Love to have the King Parrots pop in for a visit. He wasn't at all keen to have his photo taken, so we had to be really quick.  I'm not sure what he was chasing, but he quite liked my camelia bush.

Not just my jeans, but the entire load of washing came out of the washing machine looking like this.  It  happened because a complete notebook got recycled through the wash.  Not only did Mr Apple lose the precious contents of his book, somehow I have to find a way to clean off paper pulp from my washing. It's not exactly what I had in mind for the day. I don't know why I washed anyway - it was raining!  The black socks are going to be a challenge.

When I think of Buggy Barn, I always think of gorgeous rich colours that say "buy me I'm irresistible".  The folk art range that has just arrived is no exception along with some blacks which I adore.  These two I've photographed here are just a sample of the 19 I've got in, so if you want to have a look at them I've put them on my website here.    If you'd like samples, just let me know and I can pop them in the post for you.  They're just $12.00m or $4.00 for a fat qtr so once again, a good price.  

My house painting is still coming along.  The man from the paint shop tells me I should not paint unless I know we'll have 24 hours of over 10 degrees.  That's absolutely not happening, so I try to give it a couple of hours at least before the temperature drops in the evening and some days we've been lucky to even reach 10.  I love the cooler weather, so no complaints there.   I wonder how painters operate in cold countries or do they have some magic paint that doesn't need higher temperatures to dry.
