So, my growing list of 'cheer-me-up-pressies' include:
a wonderful print by Anke Weckmann - her etsy store - the girls are so like my girls it is uncanny - so I had to have it. Along with the print came lots of gorgeously strange postcards and prints of Anke's illustrations - my D2 and I poured over them this morning, talking about what we liked and what was our favourite face. My favourite is the postcard of the girl with swishing hair - love her striped stockings and her wistful face. Thanks Evie of homemade romance for the link!!
My Chaletgirl Block Swap is still going strong - "the (9-patch block) force is strong with this one" - so much so that I feel just a little obsessed with it! I just adored this AMH's fabric so much and enjoyed making these blocks So Much that I wanted a quilt just like them!! Lots of Good Folks range and just a little bit of Kaffe for sanity's sake:
More Chaletgirl Goodness - I received my Vintage Sheet Swappage!! Oh, such lovelies! I can honestly say that I truly like all of my new ones - Sheridan (and her mum) put in such a huge amount of effort and needs a Huge Bloggy Clap!! Look at the card that came with it - a little piece of vintage love stuck on
The following photos do not show how very pretty the colour all are - really, very pretty!
Now, was I talking about Chaletgirl? Yes, there is more - after my sobbing into my hankie about all the Heather Ross stuff she has, and I don't...sob...sob...I cheered up considerably when I was offered to be part of some HR buying and stashing - yes, please!! This is what I got:
Look at that face, will you?
Now was I talking about 9-patch blocks? Yes there is more - I am very very inspired by this wonderful beginning and basically I want to copy it exactly - no, I won't do that!! But vintage fabrics and polkadots - this I will do!!! I stared and studied the photos until my eyes ached last night. I think there are lots of Kaffe dots and I need to get some - oh, what hardship!
Phew - that is enough for now! Get away from that Paypal button Bronwyn!
