Happiness is a weekend full of vintage floral...

Hello beautiful people!!

I am feeling most fortunate this weekend, as I finally seem to be back to my old self. I broke my own rule last night and stayed up late working on some orders. I know I vowed to leave weekends free for recreational crafting only, but I just felt the urge to get some work done. After being sick and uncoordinated for 3 weeks (THREE FLIPPIN' WEEKS!) I am just over-joyed to even WANT to stay up late sewing! It is good news!

The sunny weather also brought the first local markets for the season. I found a gorgeous little duo of tea cups that I snatched up for the grand sum of $3.00. My small person walked away with a new scotty dog made by a cute (but rather grumpy) old granny, and a spunky pair of leggings that appear to have been imported from China...You know the ones, with funny animals printed on the bum.

There was a local girl selling original artworks for about $40.00. They were so beautiful and I would have loved to have chosen one. Unfortunately I had an arm full of King Protea's and it turns out that Miss Zavian's new game is 'lets run away from mum as fast as possible' So I had to restrain her until we were safely back in the car...

The weekend also saw me re-piling fabrics and giving my sewing room a spruce. The rest of the house has not been so lucky...

I hope you have had a wonderful weekend too! Ready to start the new week?? Yipee!
