First Finish for 2013 and 3rd post this month!!!

Silly Flake by The Cute Mermaid Design
 Whoo Hoo, first finish for the year. This is a freebie from Cute Mermaid Designs. As you can tell by the name of the chart this is not a snow flake as we don't get snow here in I changed it to the sun as we do celebrate Christmas in the summer time.
The fabric is from Sassy Fabrics colour of the month and the threads used are DMC.

I Got Mail

Okay 2013 was supposed to be the year of no new stash buying but hey who can't resist a bargain, especially when that bargain includes FREE SHIPPING. And it isn't technically stash buying when it will help me get rid of stash is it?

*images from Amazon but books bought from (proudly supporting Australian companies when I can)

I have so much yarn lying around that something seriously needs to be done and hopefully these books can be part of the answer.
Just a word of warning if you follow my lead and purchase the one skein wonders book be aware that there are corrections for some of the patterns that need to be downloaded from the publishers website.

Well onwards and upwards towards the weekend my friends

Scary Start to 2013

With all the doom and gloom in the media this is the only headline to grab my attention in days

The only interesting thing about this is they are due around my birthday....OMG a Kardashian may share my birthday with me - I can feel a reality show coming on !!

Kate and Kim's baby due on the same day?

Bookmakers are offering odds of 50/1 that the Duchess of Cambridge and Kim Kardashian will give birth on the same day.
