buttons

I just finished and added to my online shops this new scarf, I love the fabric and the buttons. It is nice and soft. I need to make one for myself, and am going to look at lining one with some thin wadding for more warmth. I am freezing in my old house today! I've ordered some lovely red knitted hand warmers from Ariema, and wish I was wearing them now.

tablecloths

I had to pop into the opshop to see if they had some fabric to make some cushions that would match my nana's old lounge suite, that I recently scored from dad's shed. Its a gorgeous deep peacock blue. My old couch was red, so I did need some new cushions. I found an actual cushion ready to use (the green one which has tiny touches of blue - sorry pic a bit blurry), plus some old tablecloths. So this afternoon I got the old husqvarna going.

Of course I had to make a couple of bags as well. Love the pear fabric, it has apples on the other side. Again I have recycled some tablecloths, I am adding these to my madeit and etsy shops.

red door

I have been off the radar for a few weeks, the reason being I have just had my house re-plastered and painted, so no more cracks and a new gorgeous red front door. So the last few weekends have been packing and unpacking and cleaning plaster dust off everything. I think I have mopped the floors about 5 times in 2 weeks. I have only just set up the PC, but my sewing goodies are all still packed, I am waiting for some more shelves for the spare room to set up properly. Of course I am itching to get sewing! soon.

meanwhile, garry green pants goes bye byes. A lovely customer has purchased barry's big brother, so I popped in in the post yesterday. All my bunnies comes in a fabric bag as part of the packaging, this one is from a tablecloth i found at Savers. I hope he is enjoyed in his new home!
