MORE FROM SATURDAY - BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TOO

I ran out of time, was tired, went to bed knowing I hadn't finished loading pictures on here, never mind they are here now for you. Following are things that were actually given to me on Saturday, for me to keep, I am just so lucky as you will see.
These wonderful wools from Janice, I was cheeky and asked her for her offcuts, you know, the bits you cut off once you have sewn all the ends in from your knitting, but just look at the treasures she gave me, I have used some of them already, they embellish a dream on my E machine, thanks Janice...
Di has been clearing out her sewing room, she has amassed magazines like me and now feels it is time for them to move on as it were, she knows I like this particular magazine so kept it back for me, cheers Di, it is great...
Di also gave me this fabulous book, she knows I am 'into' this  type of thing, a great gift...
these fancy papers are also from Di for my Journalling...
plus a pattern she knew I was after...
Thanks Di for all the above.
*************
The book below was LOANED to myself and Rebecca to read by my friend Pat, not sure who gets to read it first Reb or me? Cheers Pat, I will get it back to you as soon as...
****************
Di LOANED me this book as I have become very intrigued by 'dyeing' of late, I had a quick look-see when I got home, and it is really amazing, can't wait to give this a try...
again, thanks Di.
*******************
So what did I buy? I had Lisa as our stall holder at the group this time, [more about her later] she and Neil brought a wonderful array of fabrics and threads for us to purchase. Very difficult to choose as I wanted it ALL. I finally settled for the following fabrics - these are for my Dear Jane Baby quilt...
and these are for..who knows what they are for, I don't as yet, I just knew I had to have them.
the following two packs of Baby fabrics are what Lisa has asked me to make something with for her, as a kind of advert for the fabrics, I have almost finished the Cat Quilt for her with the fabrics I had before - go back a few posts to see the fabrics - I have an idea for these from Lisa, so shouldn't take me too long to make what she wants...
Blue above and Pink below...
****************************************************
Do you think this colour will suit me?
I am going to give it a go - what the hell...

Remember I said I had BIG news for you, here it is folks

Lovely post Jan. The Tray Dyeing book is a really good one. Will check out Lisa's website. Hair colour looks good but there are drawbacks (so speaks the voice of experience!)

AHA Caz, but will it be me! I saw someone in town with this colour and I loved it, she though was a whole lot younger than me. Oh so what I thought, remember the When I grow old and Purple poem? That will be me....from now.
