Lucky lucky me!


Lucky lucky me!

OK--now don't be jealous!! Look what I won from a drawing at Cicada Studio!! They are the most lovely linen fabrics....I just love them. They are sitting down on my craft table and I just glance lovingly at them every few minutes, LOL! I was trying to wait and make something from at least one of them before I posted it on my blog, but I'm too dang busy with a big order and haven't found the time. Still I wanted to share. You should really visit her Etsy shop and pick some of this up for yourself--I'll vouch for the quality. You'll have to excuse the pics a bit as the white balance is a little off--the whites are actually quite warm and wonderful in person--which leads me to my next subject..........

Guess what? I finally had to break down and get a new camera. The girls were goofing around with my other one and screwed up the lens--so it wouldn't focus properly (dang kids!! lol) Face it, you are little screwed if you have an online business and can't take a good picture--so I had to take money out of my eyeglasses fund to buy a camera! I might have to change my name from Mrs. Kwitty to Mrs. Magoo pretty soon if I can't manage to save up enough for glasses 8-D !!

Not much new to list today--just a couple more bookmarks is all I've been able to squeeze in

Just click the pics!!

Beautiful fabrics, and I just love the dandelions. Can't wait to see what you do with them!

That is some nice fabric! Is that mushrooms in the back? Fun....

You're right about the camera...you can't do much online business without one. I've been limping along with my old one for awhile....waiting to replace it!

What pretty fabrics you won!

Last year I walked in the kitchen and I found my camera in the pet water bowl. We guess a kitty knocked it off the counter. Hubby was very kind and got me another one. I don't know what I did in my previous life without a digital camera. It's my third arm anymore. Your pics are looking great!

Those are delicious fabrics!

Not be jealous?! You're asking quite alot there, young lady! This is Cicada Daydream we're talking about!!! Absolutely beautiful linens, gorgeous! I am jealous beyond belief, but also thrilled that they found such a great home.

No need to write in such a self effacing manner! You are absolutely brilliant with pictures, old camera or new. And I love your bookmarks!!! As evidenced by my recent feedback after purchasing one. I'm going to be repeat purchasing one to send as a treat to my 95 year old stepgrandma, who loves to read. She will adore your bookmark as I do.

You're very talented, and spread joy far and wide. I'm a big fan.

Those linen fabrics look beautiful, you are indeed lucky (and you deserve it). I'm glad you got a new camera but am sorry about the eyeglass fund depletion. I've worn bifocals since fourth grade (I'm blind as the proverbial bat), so I feel for you on this score.

jillian said...

Wow! Beautiful fabrics. Your birdies are so sweet!
XOXO
