Flurry Furry Blurry

Hi everyone =). Sorry for the silence earlier this week!
I shall jump right into some crafty news.

First up: I met Jacqui, a local crafty blogger from Hazelnuts. She handed me a bag (ooooo... curious ;D ) which I could not open immediately as I had to run to my next class. It was hard to resist opening the package, but it would be *totally uncool* to bring out a pink bunny in front of my lecture mates. ;)
Oh yes, it's a pink bunny.

Pink bunny from Jacqui

Jacqui's bunny ia sooooo adorable. Jacqui is really talented, as can be seen on Hazelnuts! I am so in love with its tail. I thought it looked French (please don't ask me why! =D), hence the Eiffel Tower. Monsieur Pinko sounds like its name, but does it really look like a boy to you? ;)
I also gave Hazel, Jacqui's adorable daughter, Marie Cherrie, the ice-cream brooch. As it turns out, she is also a pinky-fan, and likes the brooch. Yay! And Jacqui actually asked me whether I sell them =D =D. Double yay!

In other crafty news: Some books that I am coveting:

Meet Me at Mike's by Pip Lincolne,
which is available on
Hardie Grant Publications website.
And you can even have a sneak peek

Sew Darn Cute by Jenny Ryan, which is available on Amazon.
Check out
Sew Darn Cute Flickr pool!
*Oh my - Is the square bear's body fabric "my" fabric?
Yay for mushrooms and Cosmo!!*

I Love Patchwork by Rashida Coleman-Hale, which is available on Amazon.
She posted some
sneak peeks on her lovely blog.

Lastly... A little word from me:

I feel guilty, I really do. My lack of posting this week has been eating me up. I knew that I would have little time to post this week. Or next week, or the week after that. =( At the moment, I'm frantically meeting deadlines and preparing for the exams which are coming up in less than a month's time. It goes without saying that I have not been sewing at all this week.

I will continue to post, but will do so less frequently over the next few weeks. Bear with me, and I shall bring you lots of my wonky sewing stories once the storm is over! =)
I have been so swamped with work, and I have turned to the two things that comfort me the most:

Blueberry muffin (yes, I L-U-R-V-E blueberries) and coffee!

What comforts you? =)

Hope you're having a super sweet week!
