plans afoot and all that stuff February

Hewoo all

Well today I have been tuned in to the Tv watching the news to see if any more have been found in the terrible Earthquake that hit Christchurch NZ this week. I am feeling so sad for those suffering there to those who have family still missing if it makes any difference I am praying that they may be found alive. I had a young friend when I was a YOUNG  girl actually we were in our very early 20's and I lost contact with her and I have been thinking even more then I normally do this week I think she came from the other Island and who knows she may still be living in Bondi today but if you are out there Sandra Kearnes ( I hope thats the correct spelling anad of course neither of us was married back then) I love  ya and miss ya  -I am always thinking of you, wish we hadnt lost contact all those years ago.

I still havent finished Hidekos bag but that will now go to the top of my agendas of things to finish. I still havent gotten  the correct handles- I dont know wot I did but boy oh boy I stuffed that up- I went online - Ebay of course - And purchased several different types and sizes and isnt it always the way not a one of them fits the top of this bag grrrr, one thing though I DO know know the size I want so Hideko dont worry I wont be much longer finishing your bag I sure hope you like it when I do finish it.

Cols feeling much brighter and is gradually putting everyone out of the jobs they took on when he was so ill. I am grateful for all the help I received but its so nice to have the boss up and at it yet again, he managed to walk 27 holes today with his mates - they play golf every Wednesday and Saturday and talk about a pack of old cronies this lot take the cake, have made friends with several of them and they can be so funny but it gives Col a time away from me and me away from him. We definately do need some time outs occasionally VBG.

Now then plans afoot- I have signed up for a monthly club from the beautiful online shop call Flights of Fancy Boutique (Obviously to fly there you need to add the www and drop the spaces and Capitals and all that n throw in a .com at the end but hey you all KNEW that huh?? anyway the monthly club is called the Trim and Treasure Club I have taken a couple of piccies of some of the trims oooooooh they are so beautful and I havent seen trims and treasures such as they scource anywwhere so if you are like me and in need of some extras in the trims or treasure dept. you could join up yourself I promise you wont be dissapointed Go to the web Site and check out this months Trims and Treasure Club if you dont believe me theres way more in the web store then just the Trim and Treasure  club of course beautiful ribbons and embellishments so go look!!!  The below piccies are all from anyway these are from the February Baggie yup the lot of them, and theres even more in this months offering I am not being paid for this comment I am just a really happy satisfied customer. I have also found that Carole (the owner) is one of the lovely ladies in this world nothing is to much trouble for her- and believe me she must have at times wanted to tear her hair out when I got on the emails but always lovely- thanks for being so wonderful Carole.

"Now Bear" I hear you ask what will you do with these gorjas trims well I am going to make my very first Crazy Quilt with each months trims and embellishments I may find that I have too many in any one month and I am seriously considering if this does happen then I may do a second block or just keep them for other wall Hangings who knows what the future will bring in the line of light bulb happenings in my tired old brain, heavens I even had to correct the spelling on Brain how tired is it - VERY tired.

 So thats what I intend doing and when I get fed up with that for the month maybe I will finish off my UFO's, this year I dont plan on doing much else am not going to be in any Round Robins or the like just want to complete some things wont that make a first.

Anyway thats it for this post - its only taken me 3 days to do it but then I had so many other things going on around here sometimes it doesnt pay to open your mouth I just wind up putting my big number 10 n a half foot into it

Will try and show some more pics next post have lots to show and they are mostly last years that for some reason or the tother just didnt get put up on my blog, do you get the feeling that when I was a young thing that I began full flight with a diary and by the second week of January it was hidden and forgot about - found that years later- and burnt it up on the fire one night wot a load of trifle I did write VBG Much like  can be said of this poor old blog huh?? BUT I do get n occasional entry up way more then I did in that diary of many moons ago

byeee for now hope you enjoy the piccies

love n hugs Bear xoxoxoxoxox

Bear, of course I am patient with my purse. I can wait till you have got an ideal handle if it takes long!! LOL. As you know, not few Japanese people have been suffered with this quake. Still there are several who haven't been found. It's sad. Anyway do you imagine I have got the same embellishments from Fight of Fancy? Hideko

Bear said...

love n hugs bear xoxoxoxox

Bear, I joined up for the Trims and Treasure club in January, and was delighted with the February offering, too. I used a bunch of it! I'm saving up the January offering in teals and browns, though, for my trip to CIFI.
BTW, see that dangling trim with the pink leaves and green beads? I bought a whole spool of that several years ago and still have a bunch left. If you need some, let me know!
