I have had a lovely, quiet day today. Bit of the dreaded housework this morning and then this afternoon treated myself to some quiet stitching.
I am involved in a Valentine Cone swap with a group I am a member of. Today I finished the cone for Donna and sought out some goodies to fill it. It will be nice to receive a Valentines giftie in the mail soon.
I also felt the need to stitch an Icicle Doll... Belinda Schneider has us all hooked on these. I think this little girl shows my sombre mood today. I dont normally use the Shabby Chic type fabrics, but really enjoyed making this little girl today.
Yesterday my sister Lee treated me to a day in Melbourne at my favourite patchwork shop - Patchwork on Central Park. The fabrics were gorgeous...they have such a good range. I had to restrain myself, but did buy a few beautiful fabrics as my sister had treated me to a voucher as part of my Christmas present this year... fabulous present!!!
We then visited Rock, Paper, Scissors and I bought some new papers, embellishments and some of the Collections Arches (as I have run out!!!).
Lovely, lovely day!
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend too.

big storm rolls through - how we are. made of where we live. how it remains what we are , where our foot palms touch the Earth, how we can go and take it. How the crows will find us.
