Just getting in the festive spirit early this year!

Meet the new toy at our house - a Thermomix.
This is very exciting. Very, very exciting. This weird but wonderful things cooks, chops, weighs, stirs, steams. Pretty much, it does everything!
Last night I made risotto without stirring it once. You probably think the lack of stirring is the amazing part, but the fact I managed to cook something is truly amazing.

We have named the new member of our family Bimbi.
We love you, Bimbi.

Trying to get Amitie a spot on the online map.
We now have a Facebook fan page - This will be a place for quick updates and photo sharing.
I am trying to kick start our Flickr presence by adding a new group for The Circle Game blog. Flickr is a new thing for me, please have patience while I master it!
Our online store is there and will be getting bigger and better very soon.
And of course the 2 blogs.
I wonder how many user names and passwords my brain can store before it explodes?

Found this picture in the photo archive here at Amitie. 
I looked at these gumboots before my morning train trip and thought I'd be over doing it. I thought the rain would stop. 
It's now 2.19 pm and it's still raining.
Oh gumboots, why did I neglect you this morning?

The girly girl in me loves pink.

Perle threads.

Fabric shelves.

Liberty prints.

My dream machine is pink.

And this flower from the front counter is too!

The other day while shopping I visited my local craft superstore (will remain nameless) and was shocked at some of the prices.

I used my sneaky, secretive photo skills to capture proof... our heavier weight fusible pellon (same product, from the same supplier) is on our shelf for about $10.40!!

It is worth checking out your local, independent craft store.
