Recent Treasures

First up here are the little fairy's and a wee fairy tee pee that I made for H's Birthday. I think that they are so sweet and I love playing around with different embroidery stitches.

A little over a week after H turned 3, a little friend turned 3 and I made another fairy in a little pouch as a gift.

Some recent op shop treasures include a pair of double bed sheets with matching pillow cases. I really love this style of vintage florals but this set is causing me a dilemma - not sure if I will cut these ones up or save to use as actual sheets on the girls beds.There is also a more  modern floral pillow case which I think will one day become a summer dress or tunic.

A stack of cloth napkins. We started to use cloth napkins for each meal when the children transitioned away from wearing bibs. Because we use so many I was pretty happy to pick up a bunch of new ones. These have sweet hand stitched accents

I also found these place mat and napkin sets at the same shop as the napkins. They are little works of art. Not sure yet what I will do with them but I just had to bring them home with me.

Well I have finally finished my studies so I am planning to spend a lot more time in craft projects and to share them all here.
