My Dragonfly Coins Quilt is finally finished. It has been beautifully quilted by my friend Dawn and The binding is on. The pattern and Kit for this quilt are my Daily Deal today over at Fee's Shabby Shack. The kit even comes with the pre-cut dragonfly's and all of the fabrics are identical to the original.
I managed to go on one short treasure hunt this week and found these delightful English Shabby Rose Plates - I love old mismatched china and can't wait to use them next time I entertain.
I found these two at the same shop - Aren't they pretty?
I received a text from Helen yesterday morning who was doing a spot of Garage Sale shopping and came across two ugly ducklings that she thought I might be interested in - After texting me the photos it was a very easy decision to say YES. I can just imagine this one prettied up with some shabby fabric in the doors.
Hubby and I spent some time last week at furniture shops looking for a cupboard suitable for our bathroom - We had no luck BUT this beauty will be perfect for what we wanted - With some TLC she will be beautiful.
And here is the second ugly duckling - I know that you can see the potential in this one too - Imagine gorgeous crystal handles and a nice crisp white paint job - Yummo !! I can't wait to get started on them which hopefully will be sometime this week.
Unfortunately I have had to face reality that Christmas isn't far away and if I am to stick to my resolution of last year of making gifts for my family and friends and not buying commercial stuff I had best get moving ! BUT I have decided to include items made by others so I will spend some time looking around Made It and Etsy to fill the gaps that I can't complete. I think it is so very important to support other artists so it will be fun choosing just the right gifts for my loved ones.
This week I will make my list and see just how much I have left to do.
How about you - Are you starting to get a little scared at the prospect of Christmas creeping up on us?
We are off out for dinner tonight so I had best get a wriggle on.
