Worth the wait …

31/05/2012 § 4 Comments

Not another parcel of ribbons from Carmarthen, but a book that I ordered a while ago …

I decided, during an evening browsing session, a couple of weeks ago that I needed a bit of a treat.  Isn’t it easy, these days? No trip to town, or jostling through crowds, just a sit down with the laptop and clickety-click – all done!  Then I forgot all about it until sifting through stuff in my inbox where I found the receipt. I didn’t want to look too closely as I couldn’t actually remember what I’d bought! (It’s an age thing – just wait all you youngsters – your time will come).  Anyway, for the last few days, and especially since my experience in the dentist’s chair on Monday, I’ve been looking forward to my surprise – and today it arrived!

I almost didn’t want to open it ‘cos the cover in itself was worth the wait! I’ve only had a little peek ‘cos, like the best bit of a pie, I want to save some till last! This one caught my eye though …

What a project – could I ever attempt something like that? So much inspiration oozing from these pages – and so much more to ooze!

I already have one of his other books …

A treat from a couple of years ago, with pages packed full of colour and amazing photographs. I love his use of simple panels and blocks to complement vibrant and exciting colours and patterns.  Totally awesome.

I pulled out a load of fabrics to make this cushion some time last week, but then forgot I was going to make it! (Is there a bit of a theme going on here?) Not till I opened it up just now to look for a favourite picture, did I put 2+2 together and make the link with that pile of fabrics in the sewing room – I wondered how they got there!  Maybe later on …

I’m going to blame all the painkillers & antibiotics – there’s a nasty infection where I once had a tooth and I’m stoked up and rattling with pills!  It’s obviously affecting my brain, somewhat!

Whilst waiting for yet another prescription today, I treated myself to a magazine and some tea-towels for Dolly, to cheer myself up a bit more …

My favourite page is all about mustard and aubergine – what a combo …

I wonder if mustard is as good a flavour to add to aubergine, as it is a colour?

Three for a fiver, tea-towels from Sainsburys – not bad?  I also bought a bright orange washing up brush for Dolly, but it’s getting a bit sad to take photos of that, so you’ll have to guess what it looks like – not too much of a challenge?

I’ve been told to rest up and have had to cancel the retro market in Winchester for Sunday.  Quite a good excuse to do a bit of sewing though – I’m sure I can sew/crochet and rest at the same time.

Three cheers for the extra Bank Holiday weekend – enjoy the party, if you’re having one – we’ll probably escape somewhere very quiet with the collies!

    Kaffe has an amazing eye for colour, I remember seeing his house featured in a magazine… every room sings at you. Although I am not sure I could live with it all the time…

    Hope the pain eases soon and have a great weekend.

    The cocktail of tablets is working, but I feel rather spaced out – like being in the middle of a KF quilted house maybe?


  • Feel better! I think I am going to make some scones to celebrate the Jubilee. I’m sure you are sick to death over it but over here it is novel.

    The bunting everywhere looks quite jolly and the shop windows are all stuffed full of Union Jacks and pictures of QEII – I’m sure she’s really fed up with it! Enjoy your scones – don’t forget the strawberry jam & cream!
