Busy Busy ...............


Twice now I have tried to get back here to post and life just got in the way.  But finally here I am.  Look at these gorgeous threads that have arrived.  I can't wait to start a new design with them......  I am currently drawing up something very special which will be a gift to my newsletter subscribers next year - I can't wait to share it - It starts in January so stay tuned......



I found out which day my local "op shop" gets a new delivery from the warehouse - I wasn't even aware that this happened but apparently it does and now I know which day to go hunting..... 

 Maybe it's worth trying to find that out from your local too? 

I picked up this lovely bundle of VINTAGE Christmas Ornaments.  The santa is made of glass and the little manger ornament has a $40 price ticket underneath - I can't work out why it's so special but apparently it is....  They cost $1.00 for the lot.  BARGAIN !  I also bought 4 gorgeous Shabby rose pillow shams but they are currently on the washing line so I will have to show you next time.


I have chosen a winner for the name of my new stitchery quilt - It is "Garden Treasures" Congratulations Mrs Shepo.  E-mail me Pat and we will arrange for your 2 charm packs to arrive.  The pattern pack for the first month have now all been posted so they should be arriving at your house some time next week.  It's never too late to join if you're interested.  Just $10 per month over at www.shabbyshack.com.au



Can you remember when my first grand child was born?  Well Tom will be 5 really soon and my daughter has asked me to make a cake similar to the one above.  Wish me luck !  I am still trying to find some pirate figurines because there is no way I am tackling them out of icing !



I have also been loading up some new stock to the web site like these adorable wooden spools which come in a 10 pack


And this gorgeous mini quilt stand.

I am off to Melbourne for 4 days next week.  I am going with one of my oldest friends and the last time we went away together to Melbourne we took the car and filled it with shopping.  This time we are flying so we will have to be a bit more careful with our purchases.  We are both looking forward to the break. 

I hope wherever you are that you are enjoying your Saturday.

Hugs,

Fee xx

Hi Fee,
Try the candle section in every shop you know. I have seen little pirates, soccer players, ballerinas etc all in candles.
Good luck.

Why not get the Lego figures then he can use them after wards.

Pretty threads, perfect name for those stitcheries.

Enjoy your time away.
