Don't you just love it when the mailman brings you something fun , sure you do , I know I do and it was a lovely surprise to receive this pattern in the mail from my friend Annette .Annette designed this bag for the pom pom bloghop .
You all know how much I love fabric postcards , why I belong to two postcard yahoo groups and exchange postcards on a regular basis but this card came to me from my friend Linda ,what a great surprise .
I will also share one I received from an exchange, remember my little card with the bird with the postcard in its beak , well this is the card I received in exchange for that card from Terri in Ohio .
Another past time I enjoy is looking for treasures at yard sales etc. , the fun of the hunt is really wonderful , well last evening I went to a local large yard sale that took place as a fundraising event at the curling club . My mission was to look for sewing treasures and I was successful ,just look what I found .
I found some fabric scraps as well nothing much but a few pieces which I will share once I actually use them, then I went to the dishes table , don't need dishes but you never know what you might find right . I saw this hint many years ago on Martha Stewart and loved the idea so when I spotted this bottle I quickly snatched it up for a measly $.50 ,how could I go wrong ,right.
I also found a pretty green bottle and a very old green clear glass vase , you can see the little bubbles in the glass , I was hoping to find a glass bowl so I could make a garden mushroom like I seen Fiona do ,however none to be found , maybe the next sale ;-) Oh you want to see them do you , ok here they are .
Now I haven't just been treasure hunting I have been sewing up a storm on my mystery quilt which I am also sewing along with Darlene , yikes that is a lot of log cabins but I love making them so no problem here .
I am not finished by any means but I do have a good start , funny thing is I am not sure if I can't read or can't count but either way I should have 48 of these started and only have 46 ;-) I am using lots of different scraps which I hope will give this a nice look .
I guess I should let you go I appreciate you stopping by , hope you have a fun day doing something you love and thanks for the visit .
