My Little Pirate...and new goodies

He's done!
My first little pirate.

He's 13 inches /33 cm tall and has blond cotton wool hair and brown eyes.

He's listed in my Etsy store.

I was looking for some fabric on Sunday and had already settled for plain black and red cotton since I couldn't find anything I liked. It was sheer luck that I came across the black fabric with the little scull pattern and the red fabric with the white dots.

The black fabric was a remnant!! How lucky is that?? I just love these kind of finds.

I bought a bit more of the red /white dots fabric and can see some mushrooms coming my way in the future...... :0)


My mailman had some parcels for me today. YEAH!!!!
Did I mention before that I love getting mail....

The poor mailman wishes I had a bigger mailbox , so that he doesn't have to get out of his car all the time to bring things to the door....

I had ordered 3 books over E-bay and today they came.

Doodle Stitching by Aimee Ray

A wonderful book for beginners. Lots of details and easy instructions.

I love the look of this type of embroidery and plan to give it a try, hopefully soon.
It's almost like drawing with tread.

Sew Pretty Homestyle by Tone Finnanger

Beautiful ideas for things around the house. Love all the pink....

I still haven't figured out why I like pink so much these days.

Bend-The -Rules Sewing by Amy Karol

What a wonderful book by the super talented Amy Karol.

Great Ideas, easy instructions. What else does one need???

Also in the mail ....cute Japanese fabrics I bought .

They are sooo cute!!

For now they have to wait with aaaall the other wonderful fabrics to be turned into

cute little thingies.

I need more hours in the day!!!!
