Well hello!
Hope everyone is having a good week and enjoying the sunshine (well when it comes out in between the showers!)

First of all I want to say thank you to Carolyn of Love Stitching Red for this lovely tweety artwork! I won it in her blog giveaway

And thank you too, to Karen at Blueberry Park, as I won this crochet kit on her giveaway as well!!

Get me and all my blog giveaway wins!!! I seriously am not a winner generally so I can't tell you how pleased I am feeling with all these goodies.

I also want to say a big thank you to Leirka of Sweet Lovely Afternoon for this sweet award, my second one, yay!

I promise to award it as the award itself states, to some other bloggers v soon in another post!

And so to a few teaser pics for you.......
some new fabric bought to make some simple totes for the 'Makey Do'. Yummy and fresh!

Some fab thrifted items picked up recently, a gorgeous table cloth with such beautiful little flowers and lace/crochet edging; beautiful bundles of lace, which I have already used some of on the tote bags; a fab lace runner which will look perfect displaying my items at fairs and a fab old wallet which I hope to embellish soon.

my lovely thrifted chest of drawers, I need these for some extra storage in my workroom! I'm looking at giving them a clean up - bit of a sand down and a lick of paint, giving it a new lease of life!

And I couldn't go without you seeing my gorgeous vintage fabric, what utterly lovely patterns and colours, I cannot wait to get creative with these!

back soon with some pics of works in progress and finished bits too. Enjoy your week ;0 x

Hi Kirsty, your new fabrics are wonderful. I especially love the honeysuckle one in the bottom picture and your vintage thrifted laces. Look forward to seeing what you do with them!

Lucky you - winning two blog giveaways! Can't think of a more deserving recipient! Well done! Enjoy!

Love, Carolyn x
