I can't believe we're into September already - i promise to post more regularly this month! It should be possible as i'm not planning any more 4 or 5 week stays in the hospital :) I shall also hopefully be sharing some stuff that is actually scrapping - having signed up for 3 cj's and doing the recipe card swap i'm itching to get going. Have given up looking for my missing basket of adhesives in the theory that, if i stop looking for it, it'll turn up :)
Not doing terribly well on the stash diet - over the weekend i've bought some more Basic Grey paper, some 7Gypsies bits, buttons (rather a lot!) and some American Crafts ribbons. In my defence most of them will get used up doing at least 2 of the cj's and won't just be decorating the house. I was bidding on some gorgeous fabric too but i lost out on the two lots i was bidding on - they were both fat quarters but one went for nearly £7!!! I've set up a search for the fabric on eBay so hopefully some more will get listed before the end of this month. I wanted to use one of the FQ's to go with this fab pale pink fabric i have to make a tote for my niece to put her school cookery stuff in. She has a proper recipe binder and ingredients journal both of which she lugs around so i thought the tote might be a good idea.
On a technical note, we finally got the new printer - this would be the one i've been waiting for since last October!!! DH came home with it on Friday so fingers crossed we'll get that set up tomorrow. He also brought home new books - just for me! I got the new hardcovers from Kathy Reichs, Peter Robinson, Diana Gabaldon and Bernard Cornwell, plenty to keep me going for the week. Off to have a quick look through Domestic Goddess - have been asked to make something secret but need to check i've got everything!
She remembered to post!
