My favourite time of the year, wonderful balmy weather, lazy days, clear blue skies. With Easter and public holidays bunched together we have had a lovely 11 day break. Visiting family and friends, relaxing on the beach, entertaining, lots of braai's and its perfect weather for sewing ( no humidity) so I have been cutting 2.5" strips  

                                  and cross cutting

                                         added to my stash                                         

Michele had a giveaway and I received this parcel of Saral transfer paper,
it's an amazing product and I can't wait to try it on my next project. Thanks Michele!

The Help - Kathryn Stockett
