WEEKEND MADNESS

Once again... it's off to the Doctor's for me... and then Stew... then lunch at a mall... followed by a quick visit to Spotlight to get some 'stiffening' stuff for the next bag...

THEN we are going to check out a local Boarding Kennel for Teddy to stay in next weekend when we go out of town for a few days.

So, it is going to be a busy day.
And I will leave you with this:



ABOVE: I saw this book in Whitcoulls the other day... and all I could think of was "So, is there a 'LOSERS BIBLE' then"? It kinda made me laugh.

Bye for now....

ABOVE: Found this awesome material today in our travels... it's an extra wide batik... *drool*.

Having no end of trouble trying to find some 'stiffening' stuff to put behind my material when making the bags. Damn. What do other's use ? I have ended up having to buy a heavy-ish iron on interfacing. Not quite what I wanted, but it will have to do. I was using a really heavy interfacing that it not available anymore.

Oh well... we are off out again now to check out the Boarding Kennel for Teddy...

And where the hell is everyone? I am getting lonely here. *sniff*

So, the kennel is lovely, out in the country, totally GORGEOUS set up. Teddy liked it, so he is booked in for next Friday. We are going for a three day jaunt up north, staying with Lacy and Tim just out of Kerikeri. We hope to have a wee look around the area. It's just a mini break after all the stressful weeks we have been through.

End of Day: a very successful day ... and now it's time to say : nite nite!

  6. *waves* ... I'm here now Chris. Felicity and I met up this morning for a coffee - thanks for putting us in touch. Not sure if I should really have bought this humungous chocolate dipped strawberry as I left the mall - but oh well, I did ... and I'll enjoy nibbling away on that later. :)) - Strawberries are healthy aren't they?? ;-)

  16. I love the batik. I use iron on pellon for bags and for a really stiff one like my square stand up one I'm using stuff called Fast a Fuse. I think you'd have to go to a patchwork shop to get them though. Spotlight PN never had them.

  17. One of my quilting friends uses old wallpaper rolls for templates and stiffening..(I think) she said she goes to second hand shops and looks for it there...usually she can pick it up cheap.
