Lots of things to show you

First of all my Secret Victorian Garden by Châtelaine fresh from the framer and still partly in its packaging. I'm very happy with how it looks. Just as well, because it cost me an arm and a leg to get it framed.



Above are the fabrics I bought this afternoon for Heart's Desire, the free BOM by Esther Aliu.

I finally caved, seeing all the lovely works in progress on this BOM's Yahoo group.





This is Minty, our fourth cat. I don't often get to show you our little girl, because she is very shy and frightened. But recently - since we moved her downstairs and kept her in her own safe little world (a big dog crate) - she is doing really well.


Lots of buying of fabrics has been going on recently and this is a beautiful example of what I bought in a sale: Sumptuos Living by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics.

Not sure what I will do with these, but I'm sure the perfect project will come along at some point.





Thank you for your comments on my recent post about the first block for In My Garden. It will get sorted somehow and for the time being I have moved to safer ground: block 5 of Henrietta Whiskers, which is coming along beautifully.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

Secret Garden looks lovely it's worth getting these professionally framed after all the effort you put into them.
Love your black cat too.

Secret Garden is prachtig in zijn lijst en nu nog een plekje aan de muur vinden of weet je al waar deze komt te hangen?
De stoffen zijn prachtig en we hebben dus weer iets om naar uit te kijken in de vorm van foto's op je blog.
Minty ligt er hier heel ontspannen bij,ze ziet er mooi uit.

Groetjes Yvon.

Secret Garden looks fantastic framed. Minty is a beauty. Hopefully she'll learns to be less afraid.
The fabrics are looking yummy. Where do you buy your fabrics from btw? I'm always in need for a good seller.
