The question on everyone's lips..... I love ric rac and sell it in all colours and sizes, my fav would have to be the linen ric rac. Have never known how you measure the width of the different ric racs until now.
Great to use when doing embroidery, simply run through your printer, press onto your background fabric and start stitching.
Then simply remove by submerging in warm water, agitate for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
Just had an email from a friend offering me some money for the Breast Cancer Comfort Cushions, a group we support.
Sue works in an office. They buy a box of diet coke to keep in the staffroom. They then buy the cans back for a $1. The money they raise goes to a charity of their choice. This time my group will be the lucky recipient.
Check out the new COSMO Thread Album, you'll find it on the left hand side of the screen. A very nice range of variegated threads we are starting to build on. Gail Pan recommended the ones that arrived yesterday.
I know l am the last person in the universe to learn how to operate her Facebook page. Still don't really know how to - the blog does it for me automatically.
My friend Sue gave me some hints today. One of Sam's past girlfriends has been in touch - hi Jess. So tonight while l have been playing l have found my 2 nieces - Ash and Tess. Have sent them a message, fingers crossed they get in touch. I haven't seen them in almost 9 years.
I live in the Dandenong Ranges, it's a tourist area. A couple of times this week we have started our day with a walk around Emerald Lake which is about 5 minutes away in the car. It's such a pretty place l wanted to share it with you.
I am not the best photographer in the world but l hope you get the idea. When our boys were little we'd often pack a picnic tea in the summer and head up to the lake. The kids could paddle around in the pool.
In recent years it's become a bit run down. However this year there has been a lot of work done to improve the facilities and clean up the park. It's looking great and we are very lucky to be so close to such a wonderful place.
March, April, May Calendar I am away from Saturday April 15th until Monday May 8th. going on a road trip with seven other ladies from Chicago to Nashville. Along the way there will be a quilt shop or 2 and 4 days at the Paducah Quilt Market. I will be posting my adventures on the blog and Facebook.
The shop will be closed during that time.
