My Lego Motorcyle

That title is strange, right? Let me explain. I promise I haven't gone off my rocker:

When my better half was about 8 years old, he had to have his tonsils out. His present when he woke up from the general anaesthetic was a Lego motorcycle.

Since he told me that story, any present that we buy each other after surgery or other nasty procedure (which thankfully doesn't happen very often!) is called 'Lego Motorcycle".

After my recent operation, I received a healthy stitching budget as a present, and this is what I ended up buying over the past weeks, as soon as I felt well enough to go back to go stash shopping, both online and in brick-and-mortar shops:

That's pretty cool, isn't it? Included in that pile are some random fabrics which I fancied, my fabrics for the new Button BOM by Lynette Anderson called Christmas Fun (see below) and also the materials for Spring Knotgarden by Chatelaine, for which Ineke signed me up.

And also something else that I will share with you at a later date, as soon as I figure it out for myself.

Here are said fabrics for Christmas Fun:

And this is the sneak preview of Christmas Fun which Lynette gave us a few weeks back. I cant't wait for this project to start. This is the project that follows her My Garden button BOM:


Now all I need is about 48 hours in each day to work on any of this!
