Very Overdue Update

Has it really been nearly 2 months since I last posted!! The days just just seem to slip away so time to do an update before we head out of August and leave Winter behind.....

Mid July and our family home finally passed onto new owners - a  family with young children ....so lovely to know that the wonderful life we had growing up in the home and in a lovely area can now be passed onto another family. My sisters and I had another week there packing up last minute things - even got the old box of wines, which dad kept reminding us about, from under the house ...not sure they were of any value though! We stayed in the house with no furniture so we "camped" indoors - luckily the gas heating and electricity was still connected !!

With Mum's birthday late July and mine early August we celebrated together in Bundanoon
and while up in Bundanoon we though we should pay a visit to Berrima Patchwork and of course some purchases were made! A few more fabrics to add to my 30's range and some....just because I loved the bundle of colours together! 
I have been collecting old doileys which maybe one day will be made into something and was fortunate enough to find this lot for $5 at a local op-shop.... I now have around 30 or so....I do at times wonder about the person who actually did the lovely embroidery on these.....
....and one of my doileys was just the right spot for this lovely posy of flowers gifted to me by a special friend..... 
Sad to say there's been no progress on any creative projects since my last post..... perhaps next time! 

Happy Stitching
