Hey everyone, I wanted to share my newest finds from "the man"...thanks Donna. I've been in the market for a new (old) scale because mine sucks and I hide it in the cupboard  because it's ugly and it barely works.  I found this one and have put it proudly on my kitchen bench.  I also found this melamine set which is charcoal grey with white inner.  I love the  little handles.  At first I wondered why it came with three saucers and three cups.  The other two cups look like sipping tea cups.  Anyone know? Not sure if they are maybe sugar cups? But then, why are there two? Maybe there are two other saucers missing? Anyway, if anyone knows, can you let me know.  I don't really mind, just love the shape.  OK, gotta go, hope you are enjoying this lovely sunshine we are experiencing in sunny Melbourne today!

Scale $5 - and it works!

3 x cups & saucers + 2 x cups $2 - bargain!

Hi again! I have been a little busy lately and haven't posted anything for ages.. I've been busy making new blankets for a client and thought I would share them with you all.  I was asked to make a blanket for a 5 year old boy who loves animals and a pink blanket for a 7 year old girl.  Tell me what you think.  My daughter wanted to keep the pink one! (So did I)
The fabric is fine cord, cotton/linen and polar-fleece backing. It measures 1.5 x 1.1m and cost $60 to buy.

Had to use this bird fabric when I saw it.  It's fine cord fabric with a thick polar fleece backing.  The pom poms just add a dash of gorgeousness! It measures 1.5 x 1.1m and cost $60 to buy.
