Even though it has been a busy weekend it has been a lovely one - The rain has stopped here in the South of Tassie for now. It is forecast to start up again later in the week but right now the sun is shining. I still can't believe all of the goings on in the world this past week. It really makes you appreciate what you have and want to give as much as you can to those that have lost everything.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those people who are making sewing kits, have given money or have bid on any of the 150+ auctions going on in blog land - Every little bit will help.
My oldest daughter (Sammy) who is almost ready to have her 3rd child spent 2 days packing up toys and clothing from her two toddlers which was collected by "The Truck of Hope" to give - Everyone just wants to help - That is so wonderful and I am so very proud of her for sharing her children's things.
I spent the day out yesterday visiting garage sales and picking up supplies to send with my sewing kits.
Whilst I was out I popped into a local store called "Fragments". They sell lots of vintage style doors, mantles, hinges, knobs etc...... Honestly it was just a delight to wander around all of the lovely bits which one day I hope to own (SIGH).... But for now the mission was to buy new knobs for the lowboy and dressing table that I am currently painting for our bedroom.
These are the ones that came home with me - Both are made from cut glass and have brass bases. I think they are going to look fantastic on my new furniture. The dressing table needed 8 knobs (OUCH) but I had been saving for these for awhile so I just had to have them. The handle for the wardrobe was the nicest one there and I had to take the shop sample as it was the only one - Lucky for me.
I have also spent some time over the weekend finishing off some new designs.
I have had lots of fun playing with hexies
This new design just needs the binding sewn down then it is all done.
And I have also been working on another French inspired project - I love both the French and shabby looks in my home - I think I might call it Shabby French Country Style - I wonder if there is already such a thing?
Have a wonderful week wherever you are,
Love and Hugs
