Hi Dear Friends! I can’t believe that I’m joining again the ‘Sunday Stash’ at ‘Molli Sparkles’! And even better, I can show you the fabrics I won from his Celebration Give Away! It’s a beautiful bundle of low volumes from ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’! Thank you!!!
These are really beautiful and soft fabrics! I don’t have many low volumes in my stash so this is fantastic add to my collection. I had thought to use these for my diamond quilt but I shall save them for an other project.
Buttons from my trip to Finland. There was a big box in the fabric shop and the price was by weight. I was happy to pick some wooden buttons and some simple ones for pillows.
My zippers needed to be organized because they didn’t fit anymore in their small storage box. Now they can stay outside so I can see and pick them easily. Metal zippers are from my friend ‘Tilkkutie’, thank You! and most of the others are from hb:s trip to Athens! Few last poor zippers were living in my drawer but now they are happy with many colourful friends!
You may know that we have been collecting sea glass for many years and make jewelries and decorations with them. Hb made an other trip and look with what he returned! I could spend hours (and I did) organizing them …
He found some really good and special pieces. Not all of them are for jewelries … like this huge blue piece …
Except that I love the sea glass and their colours, I love the mystery hidden in every piece! Many sea glass pieces are like our privite secret. Also it’s very exciting to think about stories that those pieces many carry. Where have they lived, from where they have travelled, what items they have been and who have holded them. For me one of the most nice things were, when one little boy said to my friend (who was wearing sea glass pendant) that it could be from Pirate’s ship! Her pendant was white and first the children were wondering if it’s piece of ice and how it doesn’t melt!
Then to totally other thing. I have got this old suitcase from friends and it was really nice for decoration in our shop, but it’s not suitable to store anything. So finally I started to fix it.
I tried to take the inside paper away, but often that’s not possible. I cleaned it as much as possible and then put the first layer of paint. Hope to continue this next week. When it’s painted, I shall cover the inside with wadding and fabric.
And then also totally something else, say cheese! This is the best cheese from friends in Ioannina Greece! It’s smoked and so so good! Also it brings to us wonderful memories from our trips. We used to go to Ioannina every winter and had the best time with our friends! That area is so worth of visiting. There are lots of beautiful villages and special places to visit and to make short trips.
I have finally finished ‘one thing’. Here is a sneaky peaky until I shall show it. You could never guess what this is! … but you can try!
Thank you for reading my blog! My warmest thanks also for your always lovely and supportive comments!
