I've had a really weird week, I have been to 2 funerals & had a major product launch at work but I made It thorough and I have also had lot's of lovely goodies come my way too.
Firstly a big thank you Steph from Mon Petie Poppet in Australia who was my Apron Swap partner.
I received this beautiful apron when I returned home from Mum & Dad's which put a big smile on my face.
It is soo beautiful and the hand embroidery is amazing.
I think I will only be wearing it on special occasions as I don't want to get anything down it.
Thank you Steph for a great Swap.
Now whilst at Mum & Dad's I did take a day off from family duties and went to a massive car boot sale in Needham Market with my Auntie Sue.
I got some great bargains, an Emma Bridgewater photo album for £1, an old Enid Blyton book for 50p, a hexagon patchwork cushion kit for £1.
But my bargain of the day was a bolt of Sanderson Rose fabric with 13 ft on it for £2!!!!
Yes £2, it is perfect for my deckchair project and the lady seller was lovely.
I was so chuffed.
We also popped into a couple of charity shops where I bought these wooden coat hangers which I have already started covering for gifts and to sell.
This fabulously funky 70's curtain great for my fabric stash.
Getting out for the day with my Auntie Sue & cousin Lucy was great, I have such a large family that spending quality time with them all is often difficult.
Finally I wanted to show you my CS find from my shift a couple of weeks ago, you might have spotted it throughout this post???
a gorgeous pink eiderdown.
It isn't feather but tereline, I took it round to the in laws and my MIL to laundered it for me.
Thanks Penny, it is lovely and clean now.
It now has a new home on my spare bed in my sewing room.
Pickles has taken a real liking to it and sleeps on it all the time, Treacle doesn't get a look in.
Thanks for all your lovely comments and emails, I'm not sure how I managed it this week but you all helped me through it.
Well the week is over and I'm glad a new week is here, I hope you all have a lovely Sunday.
