Secrets and Shopping..............

No no the shopping isn't the secret............I am just slack and hadn't gotten around to showing you what i got while away............what else to buy on a road trip but Leanne's "Romancing the Road Trip"

Just happened upon a quilt shop open on a Sunday afternoon..............jammed on the brakes, pulled over and reversed back up the road...........well worth the stop........I don't have much in creams so got a few......

Now shhhhhhhhhhh don't tell Fairy Girl but she has a birthday coming up this week and since she has slept with Mr Red Rabbit since last week I thought maybe I should make her a special friend.........gosh i don't know how you girls make softies all the time..........so dam fiddly and I had to sew the crutch together again once finished..........so don't look to closely..............but I am sure Fairy Girl will love it............

Take care till next time...............

  2. Of course she will love it - it is so cute.
    P.s. I find it easier to sew up the inner thigh than the crutch.
    hmmm, not a sentence you will hear every day!

  8. Making softies is a bit fiddly - why I much prefer quilts!

    Love all your photos of the grasses and flowers too.
