Super Saturday

Some days it feels like the sun is shining just on me. Like today at the Sallies when I stumbled across someone’s entire stash of patterns and crafty quilty stitchy magazines dating from the year dot. It was a fascinating hour, sifting through all that creativity, but in the end I chose just a few Enid Gilchrist books, some Top Kids magazines and a couple of cross stitch leaflets. The rest can make someone else’s day.

At the next place I found some pinky-red fabric and a pile of doilies. A huge pile. The beginnings of an idea for this years Christmas tablecloth to go with some beautiful Living Light candles Mum brought up earlier in the week.

The last one was such fun to sew.20121124-115949.jpg And finally the library where I picked up some Christmas crafting books including one from Mollie Makes, the new Elm Creek Quilts novel and some softie books for school where gift making is in full swing and there are not many teaching weeks left at all.

  1. That is such a lovely cross stitch. It is such a shame that someones hard work should end up in such a place but lovely that you should give it new life.
