for your token crafting content this week, here’s a pic of me at Craftea Chat tracing a new Amy Cluck Pimp Stitch design that I bought on Wednesday.  The pattern is here for your shopping fun…the girls email their patterns to you super-fast.


[In this pic you can also see my poor engagement ring, which is currently missing it’s diamond.  Never fear, I haven’t lost it, it popped out on Valentine’s Day (!) when I was cleaning the ring.  And it’s safely in a box.  It amuses me, because every so often a shop assistant or random friend will go "OH MY GOD!!!! YOUR RING!!!!!"…assuming that I’ve lost the stone just then and haven’t realised.  No, I haven’t got it fixed yet, because since I’ve got married, my finger is so fat and squidgy that I can’t get it off anymore.  One of the small conundrums of my life…lost weight or cut ring off?  Easier said than done, in both cases.]

    Wow, lucky it popped out when it did!

    I just got a blue water soluble pen but any fabric it touches seems to slurp it up….I guess I shoulda sprung for the more expensive one I see in your hand!

    That’d be kinda funny – freaking out everyone for the first time thinking it had just popped out. Hey, ta for the link (again) really like this pattern… today I bought me an embroiderin’ hoop!! I’m going to give it a whirl (and I might have to pimp that pattern).

    BTW – love the new banner / blog look.

    Ooooh, I bought that pattern, too! I thought it was so cute!

    That is hilarious about your ring. Now you can tell who your observant friends are! ; )
