More Op Shopping

We are back from visiting the family in Regional NSW. It was a big trip and it took me a week to recover. I am currently having a little sewing (blog) break. The kids are on holidays so we are just enjoying some time together and getting out and about in this lovely, hot spring weather. I did manage to visit a couple of op shops up north and picked up two more vintage sheets (at $1.50 each) that I will use to make the girls some summer pj's or lounge pants and a gorgeous basket that will be used to hold my ribbons and buttons. Love it! I will get back into sewing this weekend as we have a party to attend on Tuesday and I plan to make the party girl a little dress. The girls helped me pick some cupcake material yesterday for her dress and lets just say its very pink!

Here is the quilt that my Mum made Nan for her 80th. Its not a great photo but she printed out photos of the family. Nan was thrilled and plans to hang it on the wall above her bed for the summer months. Its a really thick flannel. I wish I had the patience to learn how to quilt!

Thanks for dropping by my blog and for your lovely comment.

I wish I could quilt too. Actually I have 2 completed quilt tops but I appear to have binding fear and there they both sit in my WIP pile for more than a year already.

I love those things you have sewn too. My favourite is the Ottobre tops for your beautiful girls.

Hi Kelly, isn't this whole blog thing amazing! I hardly know anyone who crafts, be it a little bit of sewing, knitting or toymaking etc, but out here in blogworld crafting is everywhere. I've had a quick tour around Two Peas and like what I see! I've added you to my blogroll. When I finish my bridesmaids dresses I'll give some of those habitual patterns a go - and I'll look for Ottobre, thanks for the tip.

Cheers, Lynda

Hi Kelly and thanks for dropping by my blog. I love the pink cupcake dresses (you must have your hands full with twins!). Just between you and me, I have some of that material from Spotlight as well......
