Things are looking up!

Look what the postman bought this morning!

Some beautiful vintage sheet fat quarters from scenic Switzerland!

She makes the most bright and lovely quilts and patchwork, as well as selling gorgeous vintage fabrics and quilts, so do pop over to her blog My Rose Valley if you haven't already visited!

Thanks Annette, you have made my day!

Thank you all for your positive comments on my last post - they certainly cheered me up.

The part for the car has arrived today and should be fitted tomorrow, so

Hooray for that!!!

And the sun is shining yet again today - spring has finally sprung.

But the good weather has a side effect which brings out the worst in me - I feel full of energy and plans for both the house and garden and it makes me want to PAINT!

So yes, yet another project has been started (to add to all the other WIPs!) which I will hopefully be able to reveal in a few posts time!

Enjoy this lovely weather!

Edited to add: sorry folks I've a feeling you can't see any of the photos as my little Picasa symbol is missing!
Bear with me whilst I rectify that!

  13. Oh I do love crafty deliveries!

  14. Hallo,
    Great textiles, which make me think about the days gone by..
    It's inspiring what you show me.
    Now I can try to make some vintage cushions myself in a nice blending of textiles, instead of buying too expensive at a shop.

    Thanks a lot,


Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to leave a comment - I love to read them!
