Isn't this bird motif super cute! I love how it's presented on this soft grey, polka dot card. Much more fun than a little plastic bag.
This is so clever! It's a rose brooch made out of a zip and topped with some diamente style beads. It would be a lovely present or a great little project to make yourself with left over zips and beads.

How cute are these buttons?!? They make up the lovely bundle of goodies that Sammy of the Sew Crafty Sewing Centre sent me (catch up on my last post here).

....and here's the latest pic! In my mind I had an idea to cover the wall with pictures, posters, prints and random objects and so one by one, I started putting items up on the wall.
These are technically on loan from my Mum, so I'll have to find something to replace them with, eventually. The tennis racket is my Mum's that she used in the 70s, so it is an actual vintage piece.
At the top of the stairs I've put one of my favourite paintings, which my Mum did. The bright colours really stand out in the frame against the white wall.
This awesome enamel diary jug is also my Mum's...I know, I know! It's going to be much missed when it's taken back but I'll have fun looking for a vintage piece to replace it with.

The fabric is 100% cotton and looks like very good quality. I was super impressed with how neatly it was packaged. And a quarter of fabric is perfect for an afternoon's sewing project.
Also included were these fun cards. My favourite has to be the one below with the sewing machines on...what sewing fan wouldn't love to receive this card for any occasion or simply just because it has sewing machines on! I'm going to struggle giving this one away! ;-)
