I got these in the mail a couple of days ago from the Book Depository (oh I love that site!!!!!!) … I’m in the middle of the latest Elm Creek Quilts book “A Quilter’s Holiday” at the moment so I can’t start reading either one yet, but they look like they’ll be good. I love a good quilty novel :o). Also had a bit of fun in the local op’ shops, my friend Valerie was looking for a pretty cup and saucer for a craft project and while she was browsing I found these ……………I couldn’t resist them, so I bought the pair for just $8!!!! There was LOTS of lovely china, think I’ll be going back for another look very soon ;o).
I’ve tried my hand at something completely different this week and I really enjoyed having a play with something totally unrelated to stitching. Not that I don’t still love my stitching, he he, I ALWAYS love my stitching ~ but it was nice to have a little change ;o). I couldn’t resist the gorgeous little rosebud beads …..and the pretty rosy charms :o).
I have been doing some stitching too, I’ll be able to show you what I’ve been working on very soon …. hope you like it! Here’s a little hint … keep an eye on the Among the Gumtrees blog ;o)!!!
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend, looks like it’s going to be another (very) warm one here!! I’m off to the shops to get a new bike helmet and jacket tomorrow so that I can go riding with my DH :o) …. how exciting!!!!
