|I saw this 1930's print and had to have it. Reminds me of "Milly-Molly-Mandy"|
|And then I saw a pinking blade. Saves me trying to sharpen mothers old pinking shears.|
Cause I need them, you know.. I'm sure you understand.
And then to cheer myself up after hearing a child call out "Nanny" in the mall... awwww it sounded like my granddaughter but then she's 4 hours away...too far sometimes .. I went to my favourite shop "Three Buckets Full" and bought these
|Beautiful old wooden cottonreels. Why, cause my friend Myra has heaps and they look so neat in basket!|
Friends are worth diamonds ....
I received a parcel in the mail last week and low and behold it's BUTTONS!! My dear friend Carolyn from Little Bear Studio picked up these gorgeous buttons at a market in France!! I am thrilled to have some from overseas. Carolyn and I grew up next door to each other. She was the oldest by one month but I was the biggest by.. . well lets not go there.
But today Sunday I'm giving up sorting the front room because I want to be sewing. I need to sew a quilt for my great-nephew who is due in a couple of weeks. It'll be a cot quilt and as he will be in his Dad's basinet for awhile I don't have to rush. It's so exciting. I'm going to be a Great Aunt for the first time. My sisters and brother have been great aunts and great uncle for 15 years!!!
|A lot of strips from jelly rolls and a gorgeous fabric with boats (they sorta look like kayaks I reckon.. sorta)|
Have a great Sunday everyone.
