I have a birthday gift coming.................

I am celebrating a milestone birthday this year and have just chosen my gift - Above is a little clue - I wonder what it could be?

Look at my Vintage Love........... I found this gorgeous Italian Glass Jar in a local thrift shop for $1.00 - With a wash with vinegar it has come up sparkling and looks great filled with some vintage buttons. Have you had any good finds at the thrift shop lately? I also found something yummy and french looking but I am working on something to show you with it so that will have to wait until next time........................

Just in time for easter I have had some lovely things arrive in store. This bunny ribbon trim is adorable at just 98c for 2 metres.

And some delicious looking Rounneries in dessert roll form - Yum !!

Have you felt this fabric yet? It has such a different luxurious feel.

I am currently using it in a few small projects - I will show you next time.

Thanks again for all of the lovely well wishes - I now have an appointment with a "specialist" so it is just a waiting game for now.

I am off to the Quilted Crow's gathering with Marg Low and Gail Pan next weekend - I am really looking forward to seeing their new designs.

How are you going with your Baseco bag? Mine has had her first outing and has become my "handbag" for now. If you have finished yours please leave me a message so I can pop on over and check it out.

Until next time,

How exciting - are you having a party??? I hope you enjoy your special milestone year!

Maybe a lovely Yellow Beetle (with a Gerbera in the vase) to attach the number plate to.

No have NOT started the bag, Have to do my UGLY first.

The jar with buttons is so neat! I have never felt that fabric, and could find some wonderful use for it. Hope all will be well with you Fiona.
