Hope everyone is getting into 'routine' again, after our summer:)

Things are settling here not too bad. Nursery got off to a great start (maybe too good) mum had only to stay for the first morning-I couldn't believe it! But this last few days have been a little more difficult-we have had some tears, not wanting to go in, but I am hoping it is just a little blip. I heard a little bit this morning, that 'some of the children are a bit noisy', so I think that is what is making her nervous, but it is still early days:)

I was flicking through some photo's (after the return of my camera) when I realised I had never shown a winning!
The lovely Stacy from Buttermilk Basin, had a giveaway and although I didn't officially win, I got rewarded with $25 due to my 'advertising campaign' so this is what I 'ordered'

.....and some of Stacy's lovely wools and patterns

I also promised I would show my purchases from the Festival of Quilts;

My pride and joy-Valdani threads!

And the new book by Veronique. The little house in the above pic, was also from her stall.

Now it is confession, it's not Internet purchases (bet that is what you thought!lol) but, I am admitting that I have an addiction to wools!!
This last few days, I have been having some fun in the kitchen, not baking, but 'stewing' and yesterday, I became a little braver and experimented hand dying.
Here are some bundles I put together,

It is so difficult to show colour properly-this is a brighter pic, but again, it is not totally true to show the colours and the lovely textures.

I had such fun and I can feel another hobby coming on!lol!

I found these pics too and realised I had not shown this wool runner completed-again, I can't get the pic to show the colours properly.

Don't suggest a cure please, for my 'addiction'-I really don't want one, but I somehow don't think hubs would agree.....:)
Hope you are having a great week and don't forget to say hello, if you are passing by,

Blessings, Shazy x


  1. Ohhh...cute items. Colorful and fun. Can't wait to see all your finished projects.

  2. It looks like you had a good shopping time at FoQ and have since been having fun in the kitchen. Now I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your spoils.

  3. The colours of your wools are beautiful! A wonderful addiction I'd say!!

    Love all those treasures from the FoQ. Lucky you!

    Hope all settles with nursery school.
    See you soon!

  4. I hope school continues to improve for your little one! I know that was one of Kayleigh's fears, all the noise, and seeing all the big kids in the halls.

    Love your runner! I always have a hard time getting the true colors in my pictures too.

    Have a great day!

  5. Oooh, la, la, girlie!! I was just about to upload pics of that prim store from my last post, when I noticed a new post by YOU! LOL and of course, you didn't disappoint us at all~ tee hee!

    Looks like you have another wonderful hobby to share w/us and you are doing such a great job adding to your stash! LOL

    Love your new patterns/books, but mostly those yummy wools and Valdani threads! I've been getting an addiction to them as well!
    Your tablerunner turned out beautiful!! So glad you shared it all w/your faithful bloggettes~LOL

    Hoping Leah adjusts soon.

    Enjoy your day!

  6. I tried to leave a comment earlier today but it would not work. System down error of some kind. Anyhow, I was on the designer's blog yesterday of your new French quilt book. I didn't realize there is a book with the block designs in it. I was studying her different blocks on the blog. Looks like a good book.

  7. Oooh I LOVE the book and all the eye candy! Your wools turned out gorgeous!

  8. I love your wools... I find you either have the addiction or you don't understand
    I guess I have to say i understand and hubby would agree with me...
    Can't wait to see what you do with it all..
    Hope little one learns to love it...

  9. Love those threads.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  10. Shazy, Go for it and have a new hobby! As I always tell my husband, "I could be out drinking in a bar!" LOL he know that is so far from true, but I always use that excuse when I find a new hobby! Your welcome to try it out... ~Ann

  11. Oooh Shazy!
    Where to begin?? Lol!
    Love, Love, Love your wools, maybe I should buy from you and leave E-bay alone...hahaha! Your colours are gorgeous!
    Loved your goodies from FoQ, although there seems to be more valdani threads from what I remember...hehehe! ;)
    And I love your 'wins' from Stacey at BMB.
    Hope Leah is settling in a bit better for you soon.
    Have fun with that wool!!
    Hugs Wendy Xx

  12. You've taken to this wool dying like a duck to water!! What a great job! Maybe I'll have to start buying my wool from you !!

  13. god!! what a discovery your blog!! I love your style, I am into wools as well.
    I have loved everything I've seen

  14. How very sweet of Stacy to reward you like that! Oh my, what a fun shopping spree that must have been! I'm sure it was hard to pick out just what to get.

    Your new hobby looks like so much fun! The colors seem to be very deep, rich... I love that! Great job girl!
