A few new things

So its been a horrible start to my holidays. I chipped a tooth a few weeks ago but I thought it was okay and avoided the dentist (I seriously have panic attacks thinking about it!) but then a few days ago I got a horrible pain in that tooth and half the thing fell out! I went to the dentist and I have an abscess and have to have a root canal :( Gonna cost me about $500 aswell. Then I did my tax return and I have to PAY $1500!!!! Not cool! So thats how my holidays have gone so far. But before all that nastiness I did go shopping and here are some of my purchases!

My first ever sewing machine! It was reduced from $600 down to $300! Yay!

A cute magazine I found, full of scrapbooking & papercraft ideas & samples.

A cute little book with lots of simple sewing projects to get me started. Id love to make the little square bear in the bottom right hand corner for my friend who is about to have her first baby.

A beginners guide to sewing which is perfect for a total beginner like me!

A gorgous knitting book, again for beginners like me!

Does anyone out there who is crafty remember the first book they used for craft stuff?

  1. Hello! I am a nurse too! Love that you have a cat called Yoda, both of your kitties are pretty darn cute. I had a cat called Princess Leia once.
    Hope your tooth gets better real quick!
