Another day, another chickadee.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. We had a really fun weekend and we’re having marvellous weather for a change!

As you know, we went to Bamberg on Saturday. Just as we get onto the Autobahn, the Good Husband says: Do you have the camera? *shock horror* Me: I forgot the camera! Damn… Him: No problem, we can just turn around and go get it. Me: Are you crazy, that’ll take at least 15 minutes. Him (while doing 180kph and not slowing down): Yeah well, you need pics for your blog, right?  It’s no problem, we can just turn around quickly.  Me: No, it’s okay. Too far now…

Yep, too far – if we turned around when he first mentioned it, it wouldn’t have been far and I would have had some new pics! 😯 Fear not, as it happens I have lots of nice pics that I took on previous visits so here are some ‘old’ new pics. 😉




What would a Saturday be without a bit of crafty/stash shopping? Got some of the (what I thought to be Graziano linen) checked fabric at the stitchy shop, a couple of meters of different coloured ribbon and the two cutest sheep buttons you’ve ever seen! They’re really… –  well you know, cute as a button! :mrgreen: The checks on the fabric is 2cm square (3/4″) whereas Graziano has a half inch check, and this isn’t linen but a mix of some sort.  I know that when I went there first and saw the fabric, that it was called Palermo,. As time went past I sort of started assuming that it was Graziano. The mind is a wonderful thing – makes you remember exactly what you want! 😉 (I souped up the photo for a better view.)


So here we are – another post and another chickadee. I only have one more to do (made a good start on that) and then you’ve survived the chickadee invasion! 🙂 Like the organised person that I am (*wink wink*) I already made a list of what’s next on my list to stitch. Of course, after buying the checked fabric that list is now obsolete because I have fabulous plans and visions for the new fabric!
