WOYWW 67

So here we are another week over, just a few weeks now until my first Grandchild! HELP (and I am still only 35! in my head ) What have you been up to this week? if you would like to show us just pop a photo on to your blog and join the ever growing list over on Julia's blog and we will come and have a look.

On my table this week there is a pile of fat quarters I have had for years that I have decided to do something with. I don't think I have said on here yet but we are going to Bangkok for Christmas this year to spend it with youngest son who lives there, and I want something to keep my journal and pens together when I am travelling. I was looking at Elizabeth's blog the other day and she was doing a book cover,  that started me thinking, I am sure I can do something that I can roll around the book and keep my pens in. We will have to see! Other than that its just my laptop as I have been doing committee work, a picture I am not sure about and a few mags that a friend gave me.
I am sorry I didn't make it round to as many as I would of liked last week I am hopeful for this week.

Thanks for reading,
 Cath

What on earth are "fat quarters"? Whatever it is - it looks very colourful!
Enjoy your grandchild and visiting your son!

Oh Cath, you are SO lucky. I made an Asian AB awhile back and used some lovely images of Bangkok. You are so lucky to see the real deal.

Congrats on your first grandchild. I know it will be a special event.

And yes, you may call on me ANY time to help with the book. I learned a lot just sewing and making messes. The best part of the project is, there are no mistakes because it's a scrappy type journal cover. However, you know where I "live," so drop by anytime for help, advice, or encouragement.

That fabric is really colourful bet it will make a great book cover/holder

Good luck with the designing of your pen holder. Being a Nan is the best thing in the world. Enjoy every minute when the moment comes.
