A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
This month I stitched my Nan quota on another band sampler!! This one belongs to Rachel and she said we could stitch anything we liked which went with the existing bands.

Congratulations to them both. There will be an Easter themed prize crawling it's way to you some time not very soon!! I intend to get them in the mail before the chocolate expires and I'm forced to eat it myself.
Finally, the Large Boy and I had a bit of a bonding session last week, we built our first flat-pack together! I am the Master of the Flat Pack in this house, I built the desk in the office all by myself, including the cupboards underneath it. So here is our finished bookcase:
Those are all the books that were just lying around on the floor or piled on top of the existing book shelves!
