Thank you Sonia. It's a real treasure now.

My pal Sonia sent me a Tim binder for Christmas. It contained plain and patterned pages - made from Tim Holtz papers if course - plus others that had been made into secret pockets. Such a clever idea and coupled with a lovely little verse and charm. I was more than over the moon.

The day was wet so we decided to go out and do some bits and bobs shopping plus we had to book the motorhome in for its MOT.
I bought a can of fabric spray glue for the patchwork bag I'm attempting to make although it's not necessary apparently it's really useful.
One bargain garden buy was a rechargeable cordless mini hedge trimmer. We have an Italian cypress that requires several good hair cuts to keep its shape and size and hand shears are hard to use on it - for me anyway. Also from the same store we bought a set of 2 obelisks for £9.99.
You can see one from my craft room window and the top if the smaller one on the other side of the box ball. I couldn't resist them at that price.
However, the best bargain of all was 6 perennials for just £1 each!!!! I'll plant those tomorrow if it doesn't rain again.
A good day out all round.

A very happy Easter to all of you who celebrate it.
I received a gorgeous card from my pal Barb who's crafting talent has no bounds. Her neatness and choices of colour, pattern and embellishments are always a pleasure to see.
Thank you Barb.

Both in the garden and made of card!!!
I thought I would have a go at something a little more 'masculine' whilst at the same time use up some of my old paper stash. I really love paper piecing too. The base is an 8"x8" canvas covered with Tims retro papers.
Anyway, this is what I've ended up with.
