Do you remember when I wrote that my word for 2013 is ADVENTURE?
Well, adventures have begun in earnest!
I think I'll document one new thing every week through the year because it will be fun to look back and see all the new things I tried, or experienced.
I have three weeks to begin with:
Week 1 - drove my husband's new company car for the first time after saying 'no' for 4 months!
Week 2 - moved house!! \o/
Week 3 - had my very first manicure...
This was a very special gift from my Blossom, who whisked me off for an afternoon of pampering yesterday. I even had a pedicure! Oh bliss.
Afterwards she took me for coffee and scones, before a wander through the recently rebuilt Stockland shopping centre. We wandered into the Peter Alexander sleepwear store and got lost in the delicious racks and shelves of pjamas for over an hour! She tried to sneak out with some friends she met in a basket...
There are lots of cute knick-knacks in the shop as well. I found this coffee mug that simply had to come home with me!
It housed my morning cappuccino today and you know what?! I really felt like a superhero!
My brain went into super-creative mode and I designed a whole new quilt...
There are eight stitched blocks, and some pieced blocks. SOOOO pretty!
Now to plan the fabrics. That will be hard. Will I go with what I have??
...or look for something else? Decisions, decisions.
I *really* love Lori Holt's fabrics....mmm....might have to buy some more (the top fat quarter bundle is her 'Sew Cherry' range).
What new thing are you working on?
Have you had an adventure lately?
