Blows the cobwebs away....

Gosh it's a bit dusty in here ;) I'm not sure if I even have any readers left! Although I did get an email from a Real Life Friend who stumbled across the blog, so big waves to S! So weird how different worlds collide in this age of the internet.

I've just realised I had some comments in moderation - thanks Mel / ShabbyChick for checking in on me. Must try and sort the comments to come to my e-mail (I think they must go to an old addy).

I'm not sure I have lots to catch up on. I've tried really hard lately to not spend too much money on frivolous things, and what with no car boot sales well the pickings haven't been too rich.

I thought I would show some pics of things I was lucky enough to be given and that I never managed to show off.

First of all was some fab decoupaged letters that I won from a giveaway over at Clover Cottage. I love them so much! OH attached them to the fireplace and, even though I was worried he would hate them , he didn't!!!

Then we have a lovely owl brooch that was part of a swap I had with Louise. I did take some photos of the whole swap but can I find them? Nope. Anyway, it was a lovely stash of goodies. I'll try and gather up the rest of the stuff and post a photo.

Then we have a lovely little hanging butterfly I got from Little Gem. She sent it as a thank you for sending some fabric for her to use in her crafting sessions. It's lovely and it hangs in my room and makes me smile!

I made a start on a little crafty-ness the other day, I made a patchwork cushion for my DD. It was using pre cut squares that I got from the Vintage Fabric Market. A lovely site and I especially love that it isn't hugely pricey and the prices include postage. Anyway, here's the finished article. It's my first ever patchwork and I have plans for lots more!!

I took some other photos of some things I'd like to share, so I'll try and come back tomorrow or soonish with some more things to show off!

Thanks for reading if anyone is still out there!!
