Random Acts of Kindness

My creative space today is all over the place. A bit of this, a bit of that. I spent the morning going through my teaching resources and a few other boxes that haven't been opened in quite a while, oh, and DO I HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU... but it will have to wait till tomorrow. Don't be too upset - there is a reason for that, and I'm about to let you in on it! :)

You see a little while ago, Nin decided to host a fabric scrap swap. Now, as you know, I love getting packages in the mail, and the idea of getting to play with someone else's fabric? Yes please! But I haven't really sewn that many things yet, so even though I have a little fabric waiting to be cut, I didn't have anything I could swap. well I left a message on Nin's blog, letting her know that if she ever decided to do another swap down the track, that I would love to have a go. Enter Roz.

How blown away would you be if someone saw a comment you had made like that and decided to send you a package of scraps, JUST BECAUSE??? I still am amazed by it (and I know some of the reason behind the gesture - but I am still plain gob-smacked!). So here is the scrumptious package of goodies that arrived in the post today.

Kid in a candy store???

Look at all the fabric unpacked! Woo Hoo!!! I have already had a play in it and have started thinking of what I can make with it. Further suggestions greatfully accepted. :)

Scrap Happy

Some silk silver. I confess, I had to google to try and figure out what to do with it. If you have ever worked with it before - PLEASE let me know! :)

I have a few plans for these pretties already. :) Perhaps something a little inspired from The Attic. Stay tuned.

 Hope you have all had a wonderfully creative day. If you are feeling like a sponge for inspiration, head over to Our Creative Spaces.
