A Birthday Gift.....


Dia Duit, I found the little heart shape on my travels. A dear friend of mine, loves anything purple. I lined the heart with laverder coloured felt. When I was at Lucello's, I purchased some beautiful french ribbon, which I gathered on my machine, to line the side of the heart. In Kim's scrap box I found a lovely old doiley which has lavender cherries embrodiered on it, the lovely lavender flower trim, some silk thread and the three pacs of trim. Added to this will be the scrap bag on the left, the scrap bag with the birdie is earmarked for another friends birthday.

From Lucello's Scrap Box......

Dia Duit, a couple of weeks ago, little sister and I travelled to Melbourne by train, to visit Lucello's. I had a wonderful time in Kim's scrap box. For five dollars you could fill a paper bag with scrap. Kim was very generous with her scrap box. I purchased four scrap bags, two are earmarked, pictured below for Birthday Gifts.                                                                                                                                    
These generous pieces of fabrics, were in one of the other bags. I find making scrappy quilts and things difficult. Not so, with this little bag of loot. For a very dear friend, the following pics are the makings of some Christmas gifts for her.


I fell in love with Jenny's pattern and had to purchase it. (jennyfromelefantz), still in the throes of stitching and will have more to show next month. At the moment, I am struggling with my mojo, all enthused with a project and there it sits...........Sla~n, O'faigh

We Are Out of Here............every picture tells a story.....




Dia Duit, yesterday DH and I went to the local BCF shop (Boating, Fishing and Camping). Once the restoration of our trailer sailer is complete, we are in need of safety gear and life jackets. When we were in there, my thoughts turned to Spot and Molly. Spot loves the water and is a great little swimmer, where as Molly when she was a tiny tiny puppy, had a bad experience and fell in the dam where the pups came from. So, Molly loathes the water. When we go on our boating holidays down the track, these little tackers will need life jackets. The BCF store, did not have jackets small enough for them. I looked online, and found some cute and safe jackets for them. To make sure they fit, out came the measuring tape. I think the pups, wondered what the devil I was upto.....grin....as you can see they could not get to the sliding door quick enough, after their measurements were taken.I had the giggles with their antics.........
