Gotta love a party

Yesterday was one of those really cool days- market, b'day lunch and vintage finds! Throw in some cake, and serious S&B, and what a perfect balmy Saturday!

Here were my scores....great earrings that matched my turquoise jacket, and will also look great with purple

and heading back to Cathy's for cake and coffee bought me this loot- literally, they were for sale, and on my wish list!

I started the new Dortje pants, and cute out the patterns for the next items. My free big roll of pink paper has come into play- perfect for adding seam allowances. It isn't thick enough to use with a rotary cutter, but I can hang them- perfect when I want to make lots of them!

A little suprise came in the post this week- Eleesa sent me this gorgeous pin cushion, so well stuffed!!! Vintage tea towel, button and I'm in heaven!

Last but not least- bare bulbs are covered, a trip to Bunnings with a lighting expert friend (me ole neighbour Wal) and we have shades! A bit boring for me....what do you suggest?

Thanks for helping me with the celebrations!

You had a great day!! When I traced the Dortje pants I also traced the Insa skirt - soon, soon.
Is that shade in your sewing area?? If so what about decorating it with buttons, glue them on in interesting patterns.
Or stitch something on it with a bright colour - a trailing pattern I think.
