Better days...and fabric!

After a horror day yesterday... which started with lumpy milk on my weet-bix and peaked with my huge kitchen light falling right out of my ceiling (in a cloud of plaster dust and electrical wires!)...today didn't have much to live up to. I'm happy to report it was much, much better than yesterday :)

I did a bit of Christmas shopping (yay...I've started), and arrived home to a letterbox stuffed with goodies of the fabric kind...how could that NOT make a girl smile?

This is the personalised Christmas stitchery I showed you the other day...

...but this one has my name on it (even if it didn't, you could probably tell it was mine by the red polkadots LOL). Of course I made a start immediately, using scraps from my Christmas tablerunner charm pack to add some colour. Speaking of the tablerunner, the backing also arrived...

...which is a good thing because Tracey and Linda have almost finished theirs! Some yummy Bliss was also in the parcel...

...I have no idea what I'm going to make with this yet, but am happy just looking at it for now :)
I also added to my newest collection...Charm Square packs.

Sweetwater are releasing some gorgeous fabrics and things lately!

This one was just for fun too...there are some really cute fabrics in this pack! My backing fabric for a Gardeners Journal also came, so I'm going to be a busy stitcher in the next little while.
Then there was this...

...sigh. They are fabric labels, personalised fabric labels for my Christmas gifts....does it get any cuter?
Enough show and tell...my fingers are itching to stitch!

Sounds like it was a challenging day! Love all your fabric shopping...it would have soothed those frayed nerves!

Ooooooooo love the fabric, really love the bliss fabric. I think I need some of that.
hand quilting going good (1/2 way) and have ordered my "named" stitchery so I can't wait for that to arrive.
Hope your day stays good.
love me :-)

Sorry to hear about your light disaster - sounds like it make a huge mess. I think your shopping was the perfect distraction. Love all your new fabric - can't wait to see that table runner.

So sorry to hear about your disasterous day... and glad that your letter box has been turning your day around.

I love everything~ those fabrics and tags are so fantastic!! I'm so lovin' that table runner. I wish that you gals lived closer so you could help walk me through each step. I can't believe this runner project is Tracey's first~ she's doing such a great job! You're all so incredibly talented!
