It's hard to believe.....

that the month is almost over! I know this is a recurring complaint of mine but where the heck did it go? The first part of May is always hectic, there's Mother's Day and then we have 5 birthdays with just 4 days in between each one. My birthday is the last of the 5 and honestly, by the time it arrives I'm just relieved to see it come and go. :)

I treated myself to a new wireless All-In-One printer - the perfect size for my work room, one less reason to run up and down the stairs, always a good thing.

I had planned to take a day or two off and stitch but got side tracked by another project I've been wanting to get to for a while.

The little basket started out as a prototype for a finishing job but then I decided to make it match the thread drops. It also gave me an excuse to play in my collection of scrapbook paper, something else I rarely get a chance to do lately.

I can't forget to show you a picture of Roxy (she belongs to my neighbor) all decked out for a bachelorette party - I couldn't get her to give the sticks up long enough to get a picture without, still cute though.

For those of you who missed out on the Blackbird Sampler fabric last time, I unearthed more - pictures have been updated, details can be found HERE

Thanks for all the wonderful comments about RIR3, I really appreciate it!

Hi Deb,

I'm interested in a few of your fabrics, but I can only find 4 that I really want to buy. Could we work out a price plus shipping? - I'm in the UK. Please email me: jonandkarenv @ tiscali . co . uk (remove spaces!)
