I've been wanting some fun hair accessories so in preparation I got some lovely fabrics from Miss Matatabi and a couple of sale FQs for good luck:

There's a great reversible double gauze, the most beautiful Joy Flower, Nani Iro (see detail below), Fruit Paradise in Blue, Cotorienne by Yuwa and I'm not sure about the last one - it's pretty but isn't actually the print I ordered so I've contacted Frances and hopefully it can get sorted out. **Edit: She messaged me straight back and is sending me the right one - I love great customer service! Thanks Frances!**

The internet then distracted me with these cute washi tapes I got on sale from Chamby and Cor:

This morning the postman distracted me further when he delivered these beautiful Essentials by Pat Bravo prints that I won in a giveaway from The Intrepid Thread. Art Gallery fabrics are so very soft and I'm hoping to turn these into cute summer dresses for the girls! Thank you Julie :)

I've been enjoying this song and even the baby is nodding her head to it:

I need to stop getting distracted from today's aim... to finish my bee blocks!

  1. It's so easy to get distracted isn't it? :-)

  2. I'm waiting for some black double gauze from Frances so I can start airelle bliouse #2. I am half way through #1 and am finding things to distract me!

  3. Distraction of the nicest kind! Pretty purchases Lucy!

  4. So much goodness to get distracted by!

  5. Lovely additions to your fabric collection :-)

  6. I know all about distractions. I should be stitching up a cross stitch pillow for a swap and hear I am on the internet!

  7. Well hey, I got distracted by zips halfway through trying to analyse the number of changes the average customer makes to their data each month whilst at work today. Yeah, I can't think why I got distracted either ;o)

  8. Wow, what luck Lucy!!!

    The bundle from the Intrepid Thread is gorgeous! Have fun making something with it. I have that "rain or shine" linen print, too. I've wanted to make a linen quilt for some time and have been collecting fun fabrics for it. Now I just need the time.
