Hello my name is Bev and I have an addiction to PDF's.


I hope you have had a great start to the weekend. Did you know I have an addiction and I can bet you do to. I can't resist downloading those PDF's. Did you even know what those letters mean,besides that the ones I download usually contain a free pattern or stitchery design. PDF stands for "Portable Document Format" in case you really needed to know. Well I thought it was about time I started sewing up the ones I have saved on the computer. I started with this little stitchery bag.

"Take time to smell the flowers."

This was designed by May Britt a couple of years back for a swap. The thing I loved about making this little bag was I used up two different types of wadding. I joined them together to make the front and the back. This year as well as last year I really am hoping to make all my projects without hopping out to the shop to buy items. I will be using up those smaller pieces of wadding in projects like this.This project called for some cord. Now I didn't have the right length but I did have a huge shoelace type thing. This was cut up and knotted at the ends,just perfect.

Another thing I am addicted to is magazines. Gosh it is awful having these addictions!!!!

Magazines I won from Michell

I was lucky enough to win some magazines from Michell's blog. It was fun to receive these magazines. Of course this meant it was time to stop work and put the kettle on for a cuppa and a read. Thank you so much for sending these to me Michell.

Now I hope you all have a fun weekend and do something you love.

Happy days.
Bev C

That stitchery bag is so darn adorable! I love the size, and that green fabric framing the sweet angel. Such a great way to frame a stitchery project. I'm addicted to magazines too, which can be so inspiring.

Hi Bev. Congratulations on your win. Thanks for explaining what PDF stands for. I've never known, not that I really gave it much thought. But it's interesting to know! Hugs, Christine
