Spend more time with friends and family & *New Fabric*

Now all the house work is out of the way I can concentrate on getting back to crafty stuff. Last week I ordered some new fabric from Etsy. I love buying new fabric (yes I know slightly addicted!!) and I especially love it when the post man delivers it :)

I'm planning on making some new bags out of this gorgeous little lot which I bought from luckykaerufabric.

Then I saw this and thought they would make some lovely purses/pouches. I bought this stash from downshadowlane.

Going back to my New Years resolutions No.4 was to 'Spend more time with friends and family'. Yes I am amazed too that I am still trying to fulfil them!! So far not doing too bad with 2 & 3 :)
Anyway to help me keep in touch with friends and family more (as most of them live up north) I decided to treat myself for my birthday and buy one of these!

It's a note book so its only got a 8.9" screen and is the size of a note book. Small and compact and perfect for Internet, email and other basic programs. So easy to set up too, within about 10 minutes I was up and running and talking to my Mam on MSN.

Great for on the go, meaning I can always keep up with my blog reading, sometimes I find it really hard to always read my following blogs....and I hate missing out. Not any more :)

Some major work going on in the studio/sewing room this weekend so I will try and post some photos on the progress. Have a fab weekend. xx
