Yesterday bluebell and myself went to the Bramble patch one day yearly sale . We scrabbled with the rest of the ladies for our bargains . I didn't buy a lot of fabric . I did buy a creative grids 5 7/8 ruler . Very useful for half sq,. triangles . At £5 a bargain

It's a small but lovely place , for the sale they use the workrooms . It sure was crowded . When we stepped outside to return home we both said Phew, fresh air . I heard other ladies say the same thing .

The crowning point to my day was to find 3 magazines on my doormat . Recently bluebell introduced me to a magazine by Pat Winter . The mag is called Crazy Quilt Gatherings . I purchased issue No, 4 . That was the current issue at the time . I was so taken with the content of the magazine , I ordered the 3 previous issues . I have never seen a magazine detail one craft so comprehensivly .

It is beautifully illustrated , informative with many sites where to purchase the components to embellish crazy patchwork .

I have always done crazy patchwork but usually just feather stitched the seams . occasionally putting buttons on a bag .

I'm giving you Pat Winters blog , do take a look at her site it's mind blowing .

If you would care to take another look at my site tomorrow I will put on something I have made from the No,. 4 issue .

It isn't such a oh ! happy day today , my printer has decided to call it a day , I cannot complain I have had it about 5 years
