My Weekend treasure finds




I have a great love for fabric. This weekend I found some beautiful cotton pieces. I will add them to my little stash and hope for some inspiration to come my way. Summer is on the way so....skirts and aprons sound good to me. I also purchased a "Jelly roll". I am going to try my hand at some quilting. I do love a quilt at the bottom of a bed. I found a few gorgeous books too. One I really love is "Peter and Wendy". The illustrations are beautiful. I get all excited as I love our evening bedtime reads. Today was Livy's wash day. She gathered all my market bags and cleaned them on the lawn. So with our wonderful Sunny day, it has taken an hour for them to dry. I have brought her her own antique solid metal iron. Tomorrow she can press them for me.

Hi, Suzanne! I love your new cotton collection, but especially love the Peter and Wendy illustrations. It makes me want to draw. Do you know the Belle and Boo blog? Mandy is a wonderful illustrator.

Thank you Nicole.

Although we don't run our lives around too much structure, I do like the Waldorf daily guide. I would love the book illustrations to be painted on a bedroom wall. I am tempted ...

HAve a great day
