My new toy!

I mentioned in a previous post that one of the reason that keeps me away from my sewing room is my new toy.



Well, I'll tell you what I bought.



Hummingbird's Egg. Internet photo.





It's not something you buy very often. Well, at least not in this household.








Even my unshaven darling loves my new toy.













Care to guess?




Ah! No! I didn't get a loom. Good grief, I have enough craft supplies as it is.

I don't want to embark onto another one.

Don't get me wrong, I still love to weave and I still go to the craft club to enjoy an hour or so on the loom. But I didn't get a loom.

AND I promised Mangofeet I wouldn't show any weaved project on this post so ... carry on!



Have you guessed it yet?







My new toy is a new-to-me thing as I can't afford a brand new one. So, did you found what it is?






If you say ...









Oh! I am such a drama Queen! hehehe!







Did you say .....








Keep strolling down ...







This must be my longest post yet, lol.

Oh I'm getting there.




Are you?











 Honk! Honk!





Did you say a car? You are right!! But I have no prize for you, sorry!




Not any kind of car.


It's an electric car. No emission, no noise!  Everything, well most everything is touch screen kind of thing. Only two knobs. It's so cool.

I want to make some seat "mats" or whatever those are called because the seats are such a light grey. While cleaning my sewing room I found two blocks from a few years back.


I made these extra blocks when I did a quilt for MIL and FIL. (Picture of that quilt is higher up in this post.) These blocks were to be pillow shams. Obviously, I never made the shams so how about using these for the seat covers?





I can framed it with the dark blue fabric and it would be big enough. Hmmm! I like that idea.


I have another new toy. It's a brand new one too. No, it's not a kitten (I wish I'd be so lucky!) I can't show you this new toy because I am using it to take the pictures. I have a cellular phone. Yes, me!! A cell!! I didn't want one but my dearest bearded man got me one. Now he's texting me smileys and kissy faces every day. Awhhh! I can't complain about that.


Until next time ...




Zoom, zoom.  :^D




I am linking up with Cynthia from Quilting is More Fun than Housework
and Sarah from Confession of a Fabric Addict for  Can I get a Whoop Whoop?


I thought others might be inspired to use their scraps to create some seat covers.






It's Flannel Season

One of the glorious mornings we had this week. (No, it's not snow on the ground, just frost.) In real life, the sky was more orange ...
