MY GORGEOUS NEW STASH OF MATERIAL/EMBROIDERY/BOOKS..A RED/WHITE THEME HAPPENING!!




Hi ladies...

Well Christian is still very SICK with a temperature last night of 40 degrees Celcius...I was just glad hubby was home & managed it , otherwise it would have been ANOTHER CALL OUT for the poor old ambos!!
SOO he has missed two exams and I have had to take him to the doctors to obtain a certificate re his condition etc for a re exam in february...& whilst at the doctors he HAD to get a sample of something we dont like to talk about....

NO 2'sss!!! to check for certain bacteria which , if found has to be reported to the health department.....AS THIS IS A TAKEAWAY food poisoining issue...

OKAY!! whilst taking this "LOVELY SAMPLE" to the local pathology today...parked right outside a fantastic...awesome...CRAFT shop we have here in williamstown..."STITCHERY BLUE"..............

Its kind of funny as i was JUSt GOING through my UNFINISHED AMOUNT OF CRAFTY STUFF before taking this wonderful specimen or TWO!!....
my knitted bags...my cross stitch..& other sewing stuff...

AS at the beginning of the year i bought the wonderful book..
"MADE IN FRANCE"...........IT IS AWESOME..

AND found the other day another one by the same authors..
'LINEN & THREAD".........

I LOVE LOVE THESE BOOKS...& AM now more determined than ever to do my RED & WHITE cross stitch...embroidery...AND FINISH THEM...!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOO I did buy lots of material ... in the themed colours...red/caramel??
LOVe them...
SOO i have gone from apple green colours for mums birthday to kind of RED/maroon/linen type colours for my embroidery./craft fetish...

I JUST want some red/white gingham material..and some matching coloured paint!! and then will be satisfied...(re painting frames..etc etc)..

Hi Andrea,
Wow I hope Christian is staring to feel better again, what ever it is that he has had sounds pretty nasty.
I love those crocheted bags, too cute! (Did you make these?)
Also loving the stash of fabrics that you got too.

Hi Andrea,
You always such pretty bits and pieces on your blog. Thanks for sharing.

Oh poor Christian! Has he been swimming in any yucky pools or public pool recently?
When my son was 9yrs old, he got a terrible bug that was eating the inside of his gut from a dirty swimming pool. Took months to repair.
I hope Christian is on the mend by now.

I'm off to check out that website.
Hugs,
Anna
