Firstly the out going stuff. In Bee a Brit Stingy we had a mini swap of a pin cushion for the person who's month was after ours. I was making for the lovely Di and as it wasn't a secret swap we decided not to post sneaky peeks. As a result I had to wait until Di had received in order to be able to show you what I made. A swap where you know the partner but don't seen sneaky peeks in the group of what everyone else is making can be a bit of a challenge. Well for me at least.
I thought I'd try my hand at some stamping and
I think every project I worked on that weekend got stamped!

Saturday my goodies from my most recent fall from the Not-Buying-Fabric waggon arrived in the post. I was too busy to get a photograph of them until now. This bundle of goodness rocked up from Gone to Earth (Along with some magnetic bag snaps and some fusible fleece which I didn't bother to photograph due to them not being that photogenic.)

Then today I had two bits of postal loveliness. It's Catherine's month in the HipBee's and she's asked us to make Lynne's Square Bob Sponge Pants block. (OK I know I have that completely wrong but I'm in a hurry and I'm sure you know the block I mean!). These are the lovely fabrics she sent us to play with.
Also in the post was my winnings from Lucy's recent giveaway. Thank you Lucy!
I've got so many ideas of what I want to do with these Wellie Wearing Donkey's I'm not sure which will the best use of them. Also I have another Moo Card for my collection (Which excited me as much as the fabric. I'm so easily pleased!). (That's two now. I don't count the ones people punch holes in to use as tags.) Even though I've had moo cards for a long while now I only got excited about the collecting potential when Katy let me choose a moo card from her set when she broke down on the way home from the retreat. I immediately was drawn to the bear with a camera (for obvious reasons). All of a sudden I felt the need to collect and swap moo cards, a bit like top trumps! The real specials in the collecting are ones that seem to have been made just for me - Lucy's moo card definitely fits into this category. What you probably can't tell from the little moo card is the embroidered girl is not only stood on a pile of books and I love reading but she has the initial J on her chest. My initial. If you haven't got your own moo cards you really do need go make some. (Not least because at some point I'll probably want one!) You can go here to get started.
So that's my post about post. Had any good post lately?
