Little things *Edited!*


I got some very exciting mail this week. I did a little charm pack swap with a lovely flickr friend and I'm sure I got the better end of the swap because she sent me this lovely little hard to find charm pack of Wonderland by Momo. I loved this line when it came out, but back then I didn't know that fabric went out of print, and decided I would buy this 'later' and never managed to find any.


I had also placed an order for the Zakka Style  book compiled by Rashida Coleman-Hale after Trudi tipped me over the edge of temptation with her sweet little sewing kits. I'm joing in with the Zakka Style Sew Along happening on Flickr just now.


As soon as the book arrived I got straight to work and used a teeny tiny bit of my precious Heather Ross Mendocino to make my very own little sewing kit. I made a loop and button though because I decided that ties could end up being too much temptation for a certain puppy with a very strong urge to chew anything he can get his wee paws (or jaws!) on.


Yes I'm wearing my PJs. I got soaked on the school run, and put on my PJs and slippers as soon as I got in the door :)

*** Edited to add ***
If you get a wee second it would be great if you could pop on over to the Fesival of HSTs viewers choice to take a look at the gorgeous quilts there. My friend Hadley's Constellation quilt has made it to the top 10! and it would be great if you voted for your favourite (AKA Hadley's) quilt :)

    Cute puppy pics, and no shame on the jammies and slippers. It's usually what I am wearing after getting back from the morning dog walk. Wish the rain would clear off!

  11. Love Wonderland and I missed out on it too. I have a little bit in a PIF mini cushion from Reene to enjoy though.
