Crafty Stuff...

Hello There! Ive been a bit absent blogging lately with school holidays and rellies visiting. I have managed to do a little bit of crafting. I have all of the blocks sewn for my sisters 4oth birthday quilt. Its top secret but Im dying to show you!
Something I can show you is a new cover I made for a thrifted stool my mum gave me. I just made this up as I went along and looks rather snazzy I think!
I also made a little jar cover thingy - cute huh?
Ive posted off my fat quarters for the Vintage sheet FQ swap. They need to be in the mail by Friday so theres still time to join in!
If youre looking for some ideas for your fat quarters you may be interested in this simple quilt I made for my daughter using vintage sheets and new fabrics.
I made this with 8.5"blocks sewn 9 blocks by 11 blocks for a total of 99 blocks. This made a good size quilt for her bed. I used a whole vintage sheet for the backing ( the orange floral )and then stipple quilted all over. Such a simple quilt which showcases all of the beautiful fabrics!
Hope youre all enjoying the week! x

Flea Market Finds

I didnt make it to the op shop this week but last weekend I scored a few things from our local market including this fantastic crochet book for 50 cents. Its got all sorts of projects in it including a cute pair of slippers ( which I may have to whip up to keep my feet warm in our "cold" weather ). Ive already made a cushion cover out of it ( yes, another one! ) and I love the jumper on the front. I also bought a big bundle of doileys and linens and a stack of china plates .
And I bought this from the tip shop a while back. I love the design of it with the little cow horny bits on the sides. Its had a bit of a dodgy repair on the back but its a very solid chair and Im thinking of making some patchwork covers for it. Do you have any ideas for it?

Have a great week x
