Blogtoberfest Day 31: Holiday Snaps

 Picture of the coast,

 Bit cold for a surf if you ask me,

 DJ about to take the next photo;


 My Nan's beautiful garden from the dining room window,

 Horrible picture of the water from the balcony, I wish it would just be sunny for a couple of hours :(

Mural painted on the side of our decking.


Be back later on to wrap up my first Blogtober!

Blogtoberfest Day 31: Flea Market Finds

Even though Sophie is not doing Flea Market finds this week, I just had to share because I have had bountiful finds this week!

Found at the Kongwak Market this morning. 
Can't wait to get home and find some matching fabric to recover the cushion in.

Also found at Kongwak market. 
Just love the colours of the anodised cups. 
DJ is happy because I already have a set and I said we can use these ones instead of displaying them. 
Somehow drinks just taste so much better out of them!

Bargain vintage pillow covers. 
I'm thinking I may have to get started on my vintage quilt. I'm thinking vintage chenille for the back of it, so I better get searching for that.

DJ has promised more Op Shopping for tomorrow so hopefully there will be things for me to share next week on Flea Market finds since I have jumped the gun this week!

Blogtorfest Day 30: Lazy Day

Op shopping in the morning, homemade sausage rolls for lunch, DJ made Lasagne for tea, Pinot, and The West Wing season 1, I don't think my day could get much better

I wouldn't lie to you

Just made it down to the holiday house. Weather is still really nice and I'm sitting outside wondering whether I should go get a drink :) Thought you would love to see a picture of the beach at night! Be back tomorrow with some better pictures for you (or not if it rains like they say it's meant to!).

Blogtoberfest Day 28: My Creative Space

Unfortunately the rotary cutting fairy did not come and cut out the rest of my quilt :(
But I am slowly getting there. 
The rest of the blocks are cut out and the rows are all sewn together.
Hopefully by the end of the day I will have a new quilt. 
Can't wait to show you how massive it is (it won't even fit on my lounge room floor!)

For more Creative Spaces, hop over and see Kirsty

Blogtoberfest Day 27: Wednesday Love..

Today I am loving small parcels,

 That are waiting on your front doorstep, when you go outside, 

That have cute little warning stickers like these,

And even cuter masking tape on the back,

Boy am I glad I ordered two of these packages,

more cute stickers and card,

And this very silky and soft material, 
just look how gorgeous that elephant looks,

It's a huge bit of fabric, and I have two pieces,
Now I want to make this or maybe PJs?

I would love to know what you are loving this Wednesday...

Ps. Don't forget to enter my Giveaway!

Blogtoberfest Day 26: Tuesday Treasures

My Tuesday Treasure is the first thing I ever got off Etsy. I has being eying off these two on therunnybunny for weeks, maybe even months, when surprise, they turned up in the mail. A lovely present from DJ!

Bunnydeer has to be one of my most favourite things I own. 
It is slipped casted and DJ got her specially made for me.
I'm really not to sure why I love it so much. I just find it so kooky and cute!

Really love Owl as well. How cute are those little little acorns she is perched on. I really like the detail on her feathers as well.

For more cute Tuesday Treasures see Clare.

Blogtoberfest Day 25: At my House

 Feeling like I'm not getting anywhere with my stitching....

Wishing my killer neck/head ache would go away and I could do some more stitching...

Wishing there was a rotary cutting fairy that came during the night and cut your quilt out for you so you didn't have to...

Wishing this bowl of jelly beans would never run out...

Getting excited because Ms Dabbling all Day has almost finished my blanket (and hoping she is free for some op shopping this Wednesday?)

Wishing the weather stays good for the long weekend so I can enjoy four crafting and sunning days at Phillip Island...

And hoping you have entered my Giveaway!

Blogtoberfest Day 23: Lucky Dip Giveaway!

Finally have a little time to myself, so I guess that means it's 100 (+2!) Posts Giveaway time!  

Now, just for my amusement, I am going to make this a little different. You can either win:

4 Fat Quarters Christmas fabric and assorted ric rac or

Two Fat Quarters, ric rac, assorted trimming and gorgeous buttons.

And now the catch (well you didn't think it would be that easy did you)!

I have placed each of the prizes in two different boxes. 
You have to tell me which box you would like to win without knowing what is inside! (I know, I'm cruel!) Kind of a lucky dip shall we call it.

Just leave a comment saying Red Box or Gold Box and I'll draw a winner on the  3rd November. 
If you are a follower or become a follower, I will throw in some extra goodies for you of course (I would love to make it to 100!).

Good Luck!

Blogtoberfest Day 22: What 25m of Bunting looks like...

After 10 hours today and 6 yesterday we now have 25 meters of beautiful hand cut, ironed, starched and sewn bunting! 

Unfortunately it is not to decorate my room or anything like that, but to go with Kelly to Houston on Monday (she could only fit the bunting in her suitcase not me!).

Really doesn't look like 25 meters does it :(
I'm off to bed...7 hours at a sewing machine really takes it out of you.

Ps. I think I could make bunting in my sleep now!

Blogtoberfest Day 21: 100th Post

Yay! Post number 100!
Now I know I promised you a giveaway, but I have 90 feet of bunting to make before tomorrow night so I'm holding off for a couple of days. 
Giveaway stuff is sitting here ready to be photographed and posted, but there are piles of bunting and fabric with my name on them!

Sorry Peeps, hopefully I'll be back here tomorrow.
