I've just read a note from Lynn that she received my package! That was quick to the U.K as i've sent it last friday. Now, i wonder how long the other two packages to the U.S and Canada takes. I had a personal exchange with Lynn and promised to make her a mattress pincushion and i know
she loves roses but i couldn't find an appropriate rose pattern to complete it into a mattress pincushion so i've chosen one of PS designs as she loves that too. And made a scissorfob from one of the roses alphabet in one of the U.K magazines.
I am so happy to hear you like them both Lynn. Over your questions, i will answer them later, i try to take a few pictures of the materials or how i made it. It may take a while though as it will be a busy week ahead.
At this hour i should be at the dance school for ZUMBA! I've joined the trial lessons that was offered for this coming four weeks. It's once a week. But the teacher called this morning that i am placed for tomorrow evening as the group for tonight are quite crowded. I am really excited but don't know what to expect.
CHRIS signed for the gitaar trial lessons which is for two evenings while GRACE signed in for the HIP-HOP dance trial lessons which takes five evenings. Me and Chris will be for tuesday evenings while Grace on wednesday evening.
A couple of standard roses that i bought last week and i would like to put them in pots with some smaller plants but i don't have big pots yet, hope to get those by wednesday as i don't have a car tomorrow.

Bought some small plants this afternoon: petunias, Verbena's, phlox and one i can't remember the name. oh well, it seems i am spending more on plants these days than on crafts items. Flowers plants didn't interest me much before, ussually luck of time to take care of them but now i want to try.
Here's how my peonies looks like today. I do so love them, such a pity the weather is too cold to sit down outside and admire the flowers!
Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me a comment, and all the links over the hardanger. I really appreciate them all.
Hope you are all having a good week
(the draw is still open until wednesday)
