She's done it again.....

Seriously, I cannot keep up with Tula Pink's fabric lines. I am still stuck at 'Nest', I have worked through 'Neptune', I am keeping 'Plume' for a special occassion (although exactly what, I have no idea), and now she's about to release, 'Parisville' - this is really only a sneaky peak.... I am loving the colours, but can't wait to see the designs - you just know it will be spectacular!!

I know it is OTT.... but I lurve it!

Mr Fitz complains that this light is a bit over the top, however, I disagree...... or do I? Actually I know it is OTT, but I simply don't care, I love it love it love it! It will hang in our dining area and will be beautiful. (One of the cash jobs for that electrician I am searching for)

Light purchased from a friend who runs Heavenly Lights
Oh, one more thing..... Amitie Sale Day is Friday 6th August, be there or be square!!

A case of the verbals

I can't stop talking today. As part of my job I talk, I negotiate, I sympathise, I advise, I talk talk talk.... but today I am in a super super mood and have a bad case of the verbals and I really can't afford to be chatty, too much to do.

Okay, so this is my silent way of talking..... Firstly, Mr Fitz, some friends and I had dinner at last night at the most fabulous place . Carsons Lounge in Yarraville is SENSATIONAL! It wasn't only that we didn't have any ankle biters with us, it really was amazing, well priced, awesome service, the food was incredible.... need I say more. 33 Ballarat Street, Yarraville. For those in the west - do yourself and favour! For those on the over the bridge, don't be frightened, come on over, it's worth it!!

Secondly, and this is more of a cry for help. Does anyone know of an Electrician who does jobs on the side. I got a quote from a company last week and nearly fell off my chair. Anyone??

That's all. have a great day!

81 days and counting.....

81 days until my big trip with my Mumma. I am starting to get so excited... and nervous. How will I cope without Mr Fitz and Baby Fitz for 3 weeks? I know I will cope and there will be oodles to do, but 23 days without my little munchikin makes me feel a little ill.

Anyway, here are a couple of places in NYC I am dying to visit!

The City Quilter looks pretty good. It has a big range and gets some good reviews.

but wait, there's more......... drum roll please........

ta daaaaa - heaven on earth....... Purl Soho.

I have been dreaming of visiting Purl for years when they were in the world's tiniest shop front. I love everything about this shop and I can't wait to step over the threshold. (all pics will be loaded on our holiday bloggy)

So, you can imagine, how many pennies I am saving. I am so annoyed I got rid of my credit cards, all of them..... no more fantastic plastic for me...... :( Needless to say, I am just about ready to rip up our new carpet at home to sell.

81 days, 16 hours, 59 minutes and 3 seconds til take off.

H.A. - Hexies Anonymous

"My name is Mrs Fitz and I am an addict"

Ahhhh, my beloved hexies.....I am now starting to dream about hexies..... I think about them constantly. Every time my gammy fingertip taps on the keyboard it reminds me of my hexy project..... I have covered thousands and thousands of papers with beautifully coloured fabrics, I have sewn thousands of colourful gems together and my needle has gone backwards into my finger tip a countless number of times - this is your cue to say "ohhhhh poor you".

It is worth it though, this is going to be a wonderful diary of all my favorite fabrics. As with handquilted projects, the cottony softness is a constant reminder of why I love fabric and quilting so much. Patch Andi took some shots at our most recent Modern Quilt Guild meeting, so here's a snippet of my hexy project. I am currently joining all of my metre x metre pieces together.

(PS: my post title was not intended to make light of any type of addiction and that is not really my finger!!)

Oh, I almost forgot, today is Wonderful Wednesday (even though it says Tuesday above), it's hump-day! Time for one of my favourite tracks.

2. Brandi Carlile - 'The Story' from her album 'The Story' 2007 (click image to listen)
She is pretty cool, a little folksy, a little country (country is not my style). The lyrics in this song are really beautiful.
