Good old e-bay! Some hot bidding on this fabric, but I go there in the end, and it arrived in the mail in all it's gorgeous-ness today! I'm going to make a halter neck dress for Miss P and save the rest or something next summer!

Thought I'd do a show & tell post - light on the words - heavy on the photos! Finally got round to using this fabric! I adore the pear and butterfly motif - and the colour!!

Very inspired by the old family photos posted by Marianne at applehead. Thought I would put up this one, for amusement value only - Christmas early 40's style at a Kindi/school in North Yorkshire. Look at the little boy with the hat on with his finger on balloon at the front! And the little girl with her hat to the side!! My Dad is the one 2nd from the left with the big grin on his face!

Here is the skirt for Miss P, made from the Op Shop find sheet - trimmed with polka dot orange and white - looks cute on - will try and get a photo of her wearing it today. I like the fact that when something is made at home, not only is it made out of love, but it is a true one off! You just can't get that at Pumpkin Patch!!

Hello Sunshine Op Shop Monday - Little P is at Day Care, so did my usual dig through the local O/S. It yielded some yellow today, some spu-nky fabric - a skirt for P? I think so!!! Little Italian Jug, melomine egg cups and a German tea pot. Now to get sewing!!

Some 60's glass, a couple of Jay Manby wooden block paintings, and a messy lounge room (which I know is where the eye will lead!!) this taken for flicker's corners of my home. Hardly any of the other pics on this group show mess - my place gets out of hand - though I must confess, I am much happier when everything is in it's place, and I will spend too much time nesting once Little P goes to bed!!

Received this piece of lovlelyness from Aunty Cookie - a family portrait! I'm not sure how to add link-ups, but her blog is called aunty cookie and is well worth a good rumage around! Going to make it my mission this week to work out the link-up bizzo! Love using words that make me sound like a computer iliterate old shrew!!
