Look at them arent they yum !!! I'm inspired to make a quilt from these beauties, will have to add some extra prints but will keep the blue. red & white theme. My inspiration comes from this site Dutch Sisters, I love it soooo much. Actually this blog has some amazing crafts, could browse on it for hours :). Have a look...
Picked up a few nice bargains this weekend, first got some nice jumpers from our churchs thrift shop on friday. We set this up every friday, sell clothing, shoes, books, bric a brac & toys. Here's bethany as our acting till assitant
I think she's found her calling.
We sell everything off at one or two euro, then all the proceeds go to mexico. People in the community have been great with donations, the stuff they give is really good quality, we've even received clothing that still have labels on,amazing! Also got this lovely book
cant wait to put my feet up later for a quiet read :). I've read many inspiring books about quilting & i have to say making a quilt or a blanket for a loved one is so rewarding. Did a quilt recently for my mother & father in law which was received with joy, but what was so special , a week later my father in law described the quilt as feeling like they were wrapped up in love. The absolute joy of creating a special gift for special people!
Here's a bargain from Tesco, cost me four euro, BARGAIN
Wore it to church this morning with this stunning shawl i received from a friend in Israel
The stitching & beading detail is beautiful, what a sweet gift
I felt so good wearing it. Dont you just love that feeling :).
We were saying goodbye to some friends at church , they came to work with us from OM for six months & today was their last day so we had lovely cakes afterward with them, This was my contribution........
Colorful cupcakes, they were chocolate inside & got eaten real fast, i didnt get one :( oh well! On the bright side it gives me an excuse to make more :)
Finished the bunting, i think its sweet, added some tiny hearts, pattern from Attic 24 & some little buttons to the hearts inspired by Sandra at Cherry Heart, check it out her bunting is amazing.....
I started blogging three weeks ago, And i've got to say its such a pleasure to receive the sweet comments i've gotten from other ladies out there who share similar interests, so encouraging, i feel like i've made some precious new friends. thank you so much, lots of love in return xxxxxxxx.
God bless each one of you, love Karen
These are for you xxxx
