ok new all in one has decided it will play for Bear


         I have had such a wonderful time the past few days--- NOT ---- nor has my number 1 pooter techie - ie no 1 son Kieron. anyway after 3 days of trying it finally decided to allow us to get it installed on the pooters (mine and the desktop), so now I can at long last show my little BOTM (block of the month).

        These are the Language of Flowers, as I said earlier you also can join in on which takes you to the Pink Bunny catalogue of wonders and delights. Theres also a larger BOTM there as well - but I am so happy doing this one- as I said in previous notes its a 6and a half inch block so nice n small and I dont have to get all worried on what and where and especially when I need a calm down effect from having problems with a certain purse clasp and getting it to play nice -I put the former away and do a little on my blocks

            The BOTM  are so cute, the first is Daisy- innocence ----its actually all but finished  but I messed up the small white ribbon with the word Innocence on it- I was putting some Fray Check on the edges of another block when I pick up the daisy block- dont ask how I did it but I obviously touched the ribbon and hey presto I have only the Inn left- I wonder if I can put the rest of the word onto it, will try it out on some scrap so heres that one
There are some changes to it one is the small daisy on the bottom left corner with the little pearls in the centre, Valerie was lucky enough to have a very special daisy with pearls in the middle- quite different to this but very
 gorjus Anyway up the top theres a larger daisy with the ribbon over it- Valerie had a lovely piece of lace in that place but I just couldnt find the piece of lace I liked so I added this quite different daisy I think it works do you?

         For some reason my blog is playing up I have only got the previous 2 paragraphs showing and none of the bits n bobs up top that allow you to format or to add images etc so I am not going to be able to add the Pansy block at this stage so will you all coome back tomorrow and have a look, anyway I should complete it before I show you it shouldntI??? So I will, now we all know when Bear says tomorrow she prolly means a couple of days BUT I WILL Try to do it tomorrow I does promise But I also want to work on Hidekos purse also. My dearest Hideko who has the patience of a saint I have gotta finish her purse.

            Ok so I will come back tomorrow and show some more who knows I may even be a long way further with Hidekos purse I am really struggling with it- IT doesnt want to be nice and go together at all!! I had no problems at all with Rebeccas wedding purse so why is this playing up why oh why??? I so want Hidekos purse to be beautiful and its all going so wrong maybe I will get it to work tonight then I will feel better about it then wont I.................. so for now

Hewoo its cold out there

Hi all

  I will have something to show in a couple of days I am again working on Hidekos' bag and the purse Clasp,   Its so cold here in Adelaide that I dont feel like going anywhere much -Col has an Ear Nose and Throat appointment at the hospital tomorrow I hope they agree to fix the poor mans nose for him he feels so terrible at present and has done for a long time- Hes been on the waiting list for an appointment, for at last 5 years - all those little ones getting tonsils or adenoids or grommets out and in  before him gggg. Anyway tomorrow is the day.

  My old printer - one of the all in one jobs hit the died and gone to hell button the other day  Col and I went over  to the shops and got a new one similar to the old one but its not the same I have been argueing with it since -- to get the silly thing hooked up even had Kieron down to see if he could get it hooked up - but nope its being a pain in the rear end.

    Anyway I have been making little 6 n a half inch block of the month, for a wee while now. I am getting from "The Pink Bunny"  Valerie Bottell's wonderful online shop ( )  - so far I have almost completed the Pansie block, I  have finished the Daisies, and also well on the way to finiishing the Lilly of the Valley. I have ordered the Roses one next - its Pink roses. I am really enjoying doing this - I have never been in a block of the month  and being that these are 6 n a half inches big its proving to be a challenge for me cos we all know how I love doing BIG!-- 20 inch is right up my alley so with these I have to think small gggg and would you believe there was a spiderweb rose on the Lilly of the Valley block and its in 4mm ribbon. I havent made a spiderweb rose THAT small EVER well not since I began to make them my own way and -- you ---- know---- what--- I LIKE it. I am ever so surprised that it actually came up so great and to think that I like it is amazing. I guess that will mean you all hate it gggggg BUT Kierons coming back down here in the am and we will have another go at getting the printer and the computers to talk nice and I will be scanning my little heart out. Tonight I am working on Hidekos bag Whoohoo I am feeling much better about the bag and its GOING to go together and thats THAT!!!

Anyway this is  where I am up to - Thought I would let you all know I am about---- and  I havent gone into blog sleep again---- I am being so good this year---- aint I but???

Loves to all and Big hugs to all
Bear xoxoxoxox
