Perfect Day

Sunday sailing, it was a beautiful day with just the right amount of wind.

Playing with glass.

Just a little more Christmas bunting.

Thnking About

This quilt cover and

This pattern

might make this dress.
Well another week has flown by and sadly I haven't managed 3 photos a day and it just might be another week before the 3 items above actually get together.

Three Photos

I'm joining Angela with 3 photos a day.
Not sure if I am going to manage this every day.

Hopefully I will blog a little more.

Todays photos seem to have a red theme.

Making Christmas bunting and attempting find some Christmas Spirit.
Suddenly everyone wants to catch up before December 25th as though the world will end on this day, the middle part of the year passes quietly along but when November hits we seem to become very popular.
Does this happen to anyone else or am I just being a "grinch"!

Tea Towels

These arrived in the post today, lovely Australian tea towels.
There is a shortage of these in the oppies over here and I want them for a special project.
Thanks Sue 

Creative Spaces

I decided my Piece of Cake Frock just needed a little something, so I added a contrasting pocket and 3 buttons down the front.
More creative spaces over here.

Antiques & Oppies

Our local community held it's annual Antique Fair on the weekend, dealers come from across the state to participate.
There was loads of pretty china and glass as well as few vintage and retro pieces.

My find of the day came from the oppie that cleverly opened on the weekend,
$2 for the tablecloth and a delightful chat with the ladies.

My Place & Yours

This week over at My Place & Yours it's all about the frock.
I have lots of favourite dresses some are vintage and some recently purchased but this is my favourite at the moment.
I bought the screen printed fabric last week and made it from Jody's pattern "A piece of Cake".
I love this pattern it's sew easy to make and wear.

Friends & Fabric

I had a lovely day out with Sue on Saturday we ventured off to the Bowerbird Bazaar with hundreds of other people. You could hardly move inside and we did a lot of sideways shuffling along the isles and waiting patiently to peer at the stall holders delights.
I purchased the screen printed fabric on the right and knew I didn't have enough fabric to make another frock but a quick trip to spotlight and I'm all sorted.
Just need a couple of spare hours now.

While at spotlight I couldn't resist some of this fabric either, not sure what it will become yet.
