Am enjoying this swap through Mrs Martins Quilt Shop. We get to stitch something for our partner for each room of the house in their nominated colors. I showed you the lovely goodies I received in an earlier post, but this is what I stitched for Kerrie, my partner, for her laundry -
A peg apron - what a cute idea - a great pattern from Hatched and Patched, and it was fun to make.
I also stitched Kerrie this lovely Lynette Anderson design - love the quilts hanging on the line. The pattern was gift from my friend Karen, so I've stitched two - one for me as well.
Not on a sewing front but we have a fairly new "pickers market" where I live, and I enjoyed a visit recently and bought home some new treasures -
This plastic box of lovely old kitchen bits and pieces was just $8. A bit of a clean up and they make a lovely display.
I also bought this basket as it reminded me of one my mum used to have with all her sewing bits and pieces in it. I'm not sure if that was what it's original purpose was meant to be, but it does look lovely on my Singer sewing machine.
And I couldn't leave this Bendigo Pottery coffee canister there as it matches my tea canister perfectly. You can see why I try and not visit too often.
