I called in at my sisters house for a cuppa after we'd been to Yarm last  Wednesday and she gave me a little package and said "this is for you".

inside were these 3 pieces of gorgeous fabric I sooo love them.

I love those little candy striped awnings, now what can I make out of this one? Maybe a big drawstring bag that I could keep all my balls of wool in do you think??

I might sew a cushion cover for "Sweetpea Cottage" out of this one, that little pink doggie is sooo sweet and would like to live in there He tells me!!!

This fabric has a beautiful blue background, and I set to and stitched this little bag to pin my brooches onto and there's enough left to cover a little notebook that I'll write snippets of information in when I'm reading magazines or bloggs.

The silver brooch on the right says "seasons greetings" on it so it will be going on the collar of my coat from the first of December it was a present from my mam. Before I forget I must tell you last Tuesday 10th Nov I passed a house in the Town that had all the Christmas lights on outside and the tree up inside, and there's a young couple at work also got their tree up...thats  way too early for me  what about you?
Bye for now ...Lucey xx

10th November?! Insane!!

I have to say I'm itching to get our tree but I think I can definitely wait a couple more weeks.

The fabric is gorgeous - how come I never see anything like that on my travels around?!

Far too early for me. We go to the forest to get our tree the first weekend of December.
You are a very lucky lady with a very lovely sister. I would be so happy if my sister had chosen such gorgeous fabric for me.
I have sent you an email. A little parcel arrived for me today. I love it.
