Well isnt blogger being delightful? I was starting to have withdrawels without my daily dose of everyones posts and I bet there is lots of frustrated bloggers out there.Least it gives me time to get this post ready via wordpad,)
I have been MFB (missing from blogging) due to family dramas that got me down (plus those nasty hormonal moments grrr) but here I am again on my way back up.
While not blogging I have been....
recieving lovely parcels
Lyndel sent me a package of velvet and a lovely card..Remember I asked Here if anyone had any I could have?Lyndels gift will be used to make something for Miss4.5 in the future.Thanks so much you lovely lady.I still need more if anyone has any.I especially am looking for deep gypsy colour scraps for a crazy patch I am working on.
I have also painted some cheap frames gypsy colours
|Dream frame is the after|
I knitted a hat to sell giveaway? (not quite as cute as original pattern but used up some of my stash but came out ok
|My Version modeled by Miss 4.5|
|Pattern from "Knitting Little Luxeries" by Loisa Harding.Mine was from library.|
|Family Circle Pattern book $1 "Lovable Knitting and crochet" Patons Brand|
|Will be for sale soon|
I also made these bird wings (to be added to very soon with dress head peice and footwear) for miss 4.5 thinking they shall come in handy for a dress up at school later in the year,
|More to come soon|
I used fabrics from my stash and used a differnt pattern on each row but you can use same ones over again.I also added a button to the back where wings join and elastic for thumbs to spread wings.I used satin fabric underneath just to make it look a bit nicer.These are so easy to make and can be glued on if you hate sewing.You can also zigzag edges if you want I didnt but if any start to fray I will or I will buy some no- fray product liquid instead.
I read a book called Shall we Dance based on a vintage clothes shop as was A Vintage Affair I liked A Vintage Affair best tho.If you read them let me know what you thought.
And I went opshopping of course.Here are some of my finds ....
Vintage Games just like Scarlett buys
.And a brand new unopened Twister DVD game for $3 (its hidden from the gremlins for a rainy day,was a great buy as they retail for alot more.
Some butterflys on sticks for our one day tea party.
A set of drawers I would have loved but not for $170 in an opshop.They are the Bali made ones.
Some fabric peices including this Shirley Braber piece even with a few letters cut out already its still a gorgeous peice and only 50c, good for a bunting methinks.
Not sure what they were making but this decorated doiley was lovely and was only pinned to the back fabric and was also 50c they put alot of work into it too.
I got this tin for $1 and it had vintage crochet pattern pages inside yay.Why did you put your name on the top Angie whoever you are?
These cool sunnies in GREEN are they 70s? Vintage Vixen will know as she has a great collection she just showed us,anyway I LOVE them and they actually suit me I think anyway.
|Excuse my background again.|
This Rabbit edged baby sheet so cute for Master 5 weeks.(still havent met him yet)
Am loving these silver shoes tho newish they have a 20s look and they fit me and I LOVE them $5.
Leapard pattern pants, am thinking Miss D from Pull your Socks up would rock them since she has a no jeans ban this winter.If you are a size 10 and want them Desiree just let me know.
Another poodle lol but is so cute and only 20c
And fabric sheets and doonah covers to make some vintagy dresses.
Think thats it.Of course there were other random bits like kids boots and kids clothes but wont bore you with that.But one kids jacket was awesome.Miss 10 is away and wearing it long denim with furry collar and sleeves wish it had been my size.
Think thats it for me so glad blogger is working again I was able to catch up all the blogs I love to follow.
