The Tempest Tapestry is looking good. This one has silver highlights and the right silver thread is on the way to me via ebay. The silver is included in the kit but I have only the chart. Very easy to stitch and can be a cushion or framed. I think I'll frame mine.
Op. shopping again, I bought this very pretty sheeting. Wide enough for a queen size bed I have lost count of how many metres I have. I kept going back to the shop and they had more and more of this brand new fabric at a giveaway price. Now I have enough to make sheets, doona covers, some curtains and even a nightie for me so I can be lost in plain sight and Chatlotte and Emily won't be able to find me in bed.
I'm sure there'll be enough of the fabric left to make you something pretty to wear. I know you run when you see me coming toward you with a tape meassure in my hand, but perhaps you'd like a little apron to wear at meal times??
Half price day at the op shop and I bought this pretty pink doll chair.
All the bears wanted to sit in the chair but Emily rightly chose a Diamond Jubilee bear. Good thinking Emily, the other bears can have a turn next year.
Never one to resist a bargain, I found this Tower of London Beefeater on ebay. I already had 2 cows from Cow Parade, a china Golden Jubilee cow and a Bovingham Palace cow. The Beefeater is from Cow Parade too and a lot cheaper than the china ones.
Yesterday I had a break from cats, bears, sewing and ebay and had one of my favourite days out, lunch and a matinee with friends.The actors didn't go quite the Full Monty, but enough to give us a lot of laughs.
I wore a blue sparkly top straight from the op shop with my op shop brooch.
I saw the Queen on TV this week shopping in Fortnum and Mason's and wearing an almost identical brooch. We both have good taste. I wonder where she buys her clothes? or which op shop they are donated to????? I think we are almost the same size!!!
