Green fingers...

Although I have been out in the garden a bit lately this post is not about gardening it is about dying yarn and the colourful fingers that often result. I used to be ultra careful to not get any dye on my hands with gloves and newspaper everywhere but with the little time I find to do these things lately it is easier to just get the colourful fingers and let it wear off. It is only food colouring and it is slightly amusing to see Miss E running around trying to find a 'washee!!!!!' to clean my hands only to discover however much she scrubs it won't come off!

Here are the results of my lastest dye up!

Have you seen this AMAZING costume!!

I frequent the grosgrain blog. Not just because of her amazing giveaways but because of her inspirational creative sewing!

Check this out!!!

This is...

My favourite kitchen tool.

I really had to think about this one as I am one of those people to have HEAPS of little kitchen gadgets that just sit there. I could NEVER throw them away as I might just need them one day and then where would I be! So after much thought I decided on the very uninteresting dishwasher!!

(photo not of our kitchen it is from the FRANKE site)

I love being able to 'hide' dirty dishes and not having to wash heaps of bottles by hand every day!! Boring I know, but I love my new (new house = new dishwasher!) dishwasher!

Thanks to Handmaiden for this weeks theme.

You can even find online coupons for any kitchen appliance or tool imaginable.

Lots of Vintage Lovelies

Oh it was SO fun recieveing all the packages, opening them up and discovereing what lay inside! BUT it was also hard work sorting them all out. I piled them on the kitchen table and tried to remember who sent what and then redistributed them all. I appologise if you got some of your own back, or if you got multiples. A few people sent a lot of the same print and they got a few of them back as there were not enough people on the end for then to be shared around!. I hope you all recieve at least a little of something you love!

So what are you going to do with yours? A quilt perhaps? Small projects? or just save them and look at them every now and then! I think I will make a quilt with mine!

PS If I have 'short changed' you on your FQ's please let me know. I would hate to have messed it up!!
