My weekend....

Last Thursday's Scrapbooking class at the Craft Den was great...just what I needed! We used the new Bo Bunny papers. I scrapped the pictures of George that I had used in my mini book, I just love them! Lynne has ordered more Bo Bunny stock which will be in the studio from the beginning of September. I cant wait....they are gorgeous I had a sneek peak at them.

I have also finished my page, that we did a few weeks ago. The class cut all of the flowers out but I'm not that patience so I altered my design slightly and just cut out some of the flowers to overlap the photo of me and me Grandma, sipping wine and chatting at the get together we had for my 36th birthday! I added a florish and a title to finish the page off.

Well, it Monday morning and I am recovering from a hectic quilting/sewing calendar. This weekend it was my monthly sewing class and The Festival of Quilts at the NEC. Our group hire a coach, there was about 40 of us. The show is so big you never get to see everything in a day. I did a bit of retail therapy....I bought some gorgeous fabric, it's the Amy Butler range.

At my monthly class on Saturday I made a new tote bag for all the new fabric I was going to purchase on Sunday LOL! The pattern is on one of the blog I follow Moda Bake Shop, it has some great patterns for bags, quilts, cushions.......

Those new fabrics are gorgeous! Love the bag, too. I'm totally addicted to MBS! Thanks for stopping by my blog. My husband would be insanely jealous of the cutie patootie in your header. Bull terrier, right? He's had his eye on those for years.
