Goodies Number 1

Kiddie decided she wanted to make pudding of some kind after Sunday lunch.  She didn't want any help - she was adamant so we left her to it.  After a while (and a couple of hiccups) she came back in the room with these little babies.

The photos don't really do them justice.  She'd made choclate cupcakes with bright red (?) butter cream and edible glitter (glitter with everything - it's a must).  But... because I'm trying to lose weight she'd made me 2 teeny weeny ones in petit fours cases so I didn't miss out but didn't fall off the wagon. Hopefully it won't make any difference tonight - Tuesday night weigh-in!

Goodies Number 2

Stash.  Stash!!  STASH!!  STASH!!!  My fabric stash has grown somewhat this weekend which can never be a bad thing.  :o)

A bundle of 24 fat quarters has found it's way into my bag and is heading up the stairs to The Spare Room as we speak.

On Sunday we visited 'Stitches' at the NEC.  That's main annual trade show for needlecrafts, knitting wools, fabrics and 'habby'.  One of our suppliers is branching out into patchwork fabrics and we bought some to see how it goes.  Some of the designs are fab.  Very 'Cath-like'.  And there are some really cute mini prints too.

Bundles of 4 FQs are in our shop for £8.95 but they won't be there for long.  Tomorrow afternoon is the next P & Q workshop and I would imagine our band of new enthusiasts will be stash-building too :o)

Goodies Number 3

Shhhh.  Don't tell OH but I've bought " ANOTHER new book!!.."  Our bargain book shop in Lichfield is brilliant.  SOmehow they manage to get stocks of some of the most recent craft books at stupidly cheap prices.  This one was a fiver and while I've never noticed it before, I thought it would be brill for more fund raising projects for The Tribute Fund.  I shall sit and peruse...

Other books I've bought VERY recently have included the Tilda books by Tone Finnanger.  And all are £5 or £6!!  My arms are several inches longer due to the weight of my bags when I leave the shop!

Right.  Must go and get ready for work.

Next time - once I got the nod that the parcel has arrived - I'll be 'doing a reveal' of my return to blog swaps.  The Nightmare Before Valentine's Day swap organised by Apryl was fab fun.  I'll show you what I made and sent and, when it arrives, show you what I received.  Excited!  :o)
