This is Brighton Pavilion...
HERE is a link to Brighton and more information on The Brighton Pavilion. If you want to know more! It's only up the road from me.... Well ok, about just under an hour in the car! I used to. Go to Brighton a lot for shopping and cinema and the pier, Han likes the shops there! Not so much these days.... It's funny as I live near to Brighton I have never seen it as a tourist attraction! Ha ha but it is, there is so much to see there, Han and I love the Lanes, lots of nice shops and boutiques to visit.
And why have I shown you this??
Well today my mum brought me something rather interesting.... Look...
With this fabric inside... Yes!! Brighton Pavilion!
So thought I would take a look at this new quilting project that has just been launched here. I saw it on the TV and appears my mum did too! She instantly thought of me and searched the shops for it, and today brought it around! Yipppeeee how exciting! At this stage I am not sure if I am going to subscribe to it or even make it. But it's something new and interesting right now! I love a good distraction!! Ha ha
So what else have I been doing?
Remember the lovely Prairie Schooler design I am stitching? Of course you do! Ha ha
But unfortunately this design has to go back in the Bucket Of Doooooo.... Why I bet your wondering?? Not because I want it to :( oh no!! I did not realise how much green this design needs. OMG!! so much green!! Not any green though it's DMC 3362.... Seriously I thought there was enough of this green in the border! So for the mean time this design is on hold.
What will I do now?? Ha ha well I cannot stitch more of the lovely cute months from The Snowflower Diaries as they have not been released yet!
So what did I do?? Started an Easter stitch! Ha ha what else!
Ha ha it's a Trilogy design called Beatrice!
This stitch is a easy on the eyes one! See I am stitching it in 16 count Aida... Hand dyed some time ago by me! The photo does not show the colour of the Aida very well at all... It's more like a browny yellow or sandy colour.
I am keeping all the bits inside one of the lovely gifts sent to me....from dear Sue (kiwikid). I love love love the things she made for me :) very useful indeed.
Oooh yes! Have to show you all something rather funny and silly that has stayed with me for a while now... Ha ha it is rather silly.
Yes a throw away coffee cup, the ones that come out of the vending machines..ha ha with coffee in! Ha ha but it's never had any coffee in, oh no! It would go all soft. And what am I using it for?
I needed somewhere to put all my thread cuttings when stitching...something I would not forget to use or misplace. Ha ha a coffee cup! And why not?
It works! Well for now anyway! I noticed it is rather looking tatty, scruffy and oddly shaped now :( so I will have to get my thinking cap on now, to think on what to put my thread cuttings in now? Have you any ideas? Oh I like different... See that way I will not forget to put them in it, and won't lose it or misplace it! Ha ha cannot wait to see what you all suggest!
Well must get back to stitching!!
Until I next pop by, remember to keep smiling :)
