Another day and a bit more craft.

What a great time it was on Sunday, I went into Melbourne for another guild meeting. Lots of laughs, lots of tea (a few trips to the loo,) a good bit of sewing and oodles of fabric fondling! 
Someone had brought along her stash of beautiful wools from the Waverley Woollen Mills.....dreamy and so soft, all in shades of blue, purple, green and cream. Then, as if that wasn't enough, she pulled out of her basket handfuls of Echino, Kristen Doran, Ink and Spindle.....oh the name dropping was intense! 
Having a complete fit of fabric envy, Rachal and I wisely decided the only option left to us was to nobble the fabric queen. We quickly worked out a devastatingly clever plan to knock her on the head and nick her fabric...... unfortunately we weren't overly quiet when planning our assault and as she was sitting right next to us she quickly got wind of our plans and escaped. Sigh! 

Anyway, today I had craft group and this is what I came up with. Not sure I like the skin outline in black, but it's a couple of years since I did any embroidery so I was just messing about trying to decide if I still like doing it.


  1. This is gorgeous Clair!
    I think a sneak attack is the way to go next month, we'll come up with a secret sign and then run! : )
    How's the Anime quilt coming along?
    Looking forward to seeing it next month.

  2. *giggles* You're such a card love! Love the spotty fabric, I've got a thing for spots at the moment and your little skipping miss is just too cute! I am planning a trip to Melb in Oct/Nov so will let you know, I plan to kidnap you for a day of fabric fondling ;)

  3. she's so cute *sigh*!

  4. Curse me indeed - and I safely escaped today, too. I didn't realise my days were numbered. And I swear I didn't bring the echinos etc today purely to torment you. though I may bring them next time just to make you jealous ;-)
