The Christmas mood strikes!!

I have learned,

in whatsoever state I am,

therewith to be content.

-St. Paul.
Hello, I have just dragged myself out of
my sewing shed, and boy it was hard to
do!! I made an early start on....supposedly
cleaning my sewing shed up, I did start to
but then I laid eyes on some Christmas material.
This is what I’ve made this morning, a
Christmas present bag and a small gusset
Christmas box. Great ideas to jazz up
the joy of giving at Christmas.
 Getting in the Christmas mood....already!!
I am rather pleased with this little stitchery
that I enjoyed making.
A couple of days ago after I’d painted the
furniture for the dolls house, I made some
cute bed linen for the dolls bed. I rather
like the ric rac, it is nice and bright.
Funky bedding for the doll house
My rascal friend Heather and I went for a
trip to a quaint little town about 20
minutes away from home. We had heard of
a fantastic craft shop there and had to
investigate for ourselves. Of course
Heather finds the best things!
The hand of a precious soul
We also went
for a walk to the op-shop and it was
typical of a small country town. Everyone
we met said hello, smiled and seemed
cheery. It was such a peaceful place.
I promised myself while I was on holidays
that I would do one spring clean job a day,
That hasn’t happened yet today, but it will.
I attacked my antique tea trolley yesterday
replacing all the doilies and runners with
fresh ones.
 Clean up day
Some of my treasures
 I just love the look of sparkling
China and dishes. I’m weird, I know.
Well, I can hear the sewing shed calling my
name, so I must go.

Love the bedding for the doll furniture.
Have fun? with your Spring Cleaning!
