Why do weekends go so fast??

It was fab but over way to fast! So Polly and Rebecca came to stay and play! arriving early Saturday and leaving early evening sunday, in that time (minus the time we took out to go fabric shopping) we spent in the cabin sewing,
Polly was working on the "shroud" a quilt she has been making for her mother for quite a few years which has been named "the shroud" polly planned to get 8 blocks done over the weekend but actualy doubled that and made 16 YAYY!!
while polly was working on that I was trying to encourage me sewing bug to return which has been MIA for some time.....this is what I came up with, rather like it i do !!!

needs tweaking which I will do with the second run, but very happy.
 our shopping trip was almost completely successful, Polly and I have decided to work on a Dear Jane quilt together so went off to buy fabric, I didn't come back with the yellow I needed but did get the rest so plenty to be getting on with, Polly didn't get her yellow either.....must be a shortage of yellow fabby we thinks!!
google Dear Jane quilt to see what its all about, we have a FB page set up....if any one wants to sew along with us just yell and I will add you to the group.
so a lovely weekend was had.....whens the next one ??

Play time......

Tuesday......... I was able to spend the day in the Cabin and play and this is what I came up with, I turned this stampin up delivery box into a lovely storage box for some of my stamps.
lots of paint, paper and glue, I painted the box and parts, then stuck them all together and added paper then covered it all in a white glue and water solution to seal it

I left the back space the full width to allow room for my misty and stamping card

i'm going to make a smaller one to house all my project life card and bits and pieces.

Where did this week go??

It has flown past and gone and we are now in March HURRAH......even closer to spring.
so what have I been up to this week?
a bit of colouring in that's what......
the first one was with Promarkers,
which I really do need to add to my collection, never seem to have the right colour !!
then I went onto my stampin up Blendabilities, just love the colour removing pen!!
and then back to the Promarkers, I need a bit of practice but am very happy with the results.
