A friend gave me this wonderful book...it has a wonderful message for any age.

The sewing room needed order to be returned...the pile of mending (boring!) is done (why does it take 8 months and 1 hour to do that mending...hehe)...fabric is sorted...shelves are dusted...and the floor is now thread free.
Why do we put these things off, but then so enjoy the finished result?I am now ready to attack the fun things with renewed vigour!

They brought back memories of dolls kept in little suitcases with their clothes & taken to friends places to play. Dad even made me a little white painted wardrobe for my room.

Bought these pieces...some for my retro/30's collection & perhaps some for the Birthday fat 1/4 swap girls.
It was worth the 4 hr round trip to have such a nice day!

Finally, after extensive excavations into the bottom of long lost baskets I found a blue & white stripe that might "do". Shall play with it tonight...I will let you know how it goes!

It was time to construct Rosalie's pretty sewing bag from GDITC at Nundle. I was really happy with the stitchery...I like to use a variety of stitches to give texture & interest...also added a whimsical touch or two to make it my "own". My mum had been given some old ric-racs which she passed on to me, so some green was added at the base for a fun touch.
Toot, toot...it's the parcel delivery with a "squishie" for me!!!!! I love those squishie parcels that I get in the mail...the excitement of new fabric arriving...isn't it lovely? This scrumptious treat came from the lovely girls at Provincial Patch...thanks...I love it. I have some plans for it...but for the moment it is just nice to admire & dream!
A trip out for coffee with my DH & darling daughter made the day a real treat...the usual nasties (aka ironing, washing & housecleaning) are waiting for my undivided attention from tomorrow...oh well today was lovely!

Hope the rain this week was shared by those who needed it most... we had 90mm this week...beautiful for my garden...wonderful for the farmers. Sadly it seems to be feast or famine, and while we are pleased with the rain others are fleeing their homes due to flooding.
The local birdlife could be seen sheltering on my back verandah clothesline as well as these bedraggled rosellas on the fence- at one stage there were 12 of them and a couple of kookaburras.
