Yesterday Rosie & I went to the beautiful town of Trentham to visit one of the best op shops in the area.
I love this oppie!!
It was full of treasures, all neatly piled and sorted and at such reasonable prices. Like opshops in the old day always were. I had a lot of fun looking for fabric for my scrap quilt and for bunny making and did find some ace vintage pieces.
The scrap quilt is coming along nicely although I think it will become two quilts. A brighter, more colourful Australiana inspired one and the other might be more gentle and faded.
Usually I make the bunnies first and my mum matches the colours for the cardi's,
but this time we are working backwards and I have all three cardi's already. It's been fun finding the co ordinating fabric & I'm really happy with all three combinations.
This post has taken a few hours because I've been sitting with Kate & chatting about a million things including the new Daylesford craft group, Handmade! We are meeting for the first time this Monday, 8th March at 7.00 at The Perfect Drop. If you live nearby and would like to come then send me an email or just turn up!! We love to see you.
Before I forget I'm happy to say that Tania will be receiving the knitting pattern book from my last Creative Space!! Yay for you honey!! I hope you have fun making the teensy tiny cakes and teapot. Can you please send me your address?
For more Creative Spaces pop over & visit Kooyotoo.
Hope your space is a happy one today,
see you soon xo
