First, in honour of Sunday Stash, I thought I would show you a little of my recent shopping. *happy place* If you are fabric dieting, turn away now, because this is Wee Wander by Sarah Jane. I'm sure you've seen it around blogland, because it is so delicious. I managed to nab a fat quarter bundle from Hawthorne Fabrics, who shipped it so fast, I thought they had sent it by rocket.
I don't know what I am going to do with this yet, but it will have to be something special! If you have any good ideas - let me know! I love pretty much everything about it - the prints, the colours, the cute little animals. See the little horse. How can you resist him?

In addition to fabric shopping, I popped down to my local embroidery shop for cross stitch supplies yesterday. I have joined the Facebook group for the Once Upon a Time sampler, and one of the girls there mentioned monofilament thread for adding little sparkles to her bubbles. Naturally, I thought I had better give it a go.
Going into a brick and mortar shop was deadly. After finding the thread, there was the DMC gold which looked good for the crowns. And a variegated floss for a golden ball. And a Q Snap frame to replace my splintery old hoop - which is square to keep the linen from distorting, and plastic so it doesn't catch the fabric (even so, I covered my precious linen with paper towel before clipping it on. You can never be too careful). Oh and the hot pink scissors. I needed those, you know.
I got three stamps on my new loyalty card. I don't think that's a good thing.

And just to prove I do more than sew, here is something from the garden. We are harvesting tomatoes by the bucket (literally) at the moment. These are the first of our Green Zebra tomatoes - they are ripe - they just stay green. And stripey. They taste pretty good.
What have you been doing? Lots of lovely sewing? I'm linking up to Sunday Stash. Come and have a look at the lovely fabrics. Mmmmmmm.
