I really do fancy stopping by here more often than I do, but then the week runs away from me and suddenly I find another whole week has passed by. So it seems another catch up of this and that will be best way to go today.
It was an even thinner car boot haul this week, but I just can't keep away. The week I don't go, the best treasure in the world might be hiding in that field and I'd have missed it, but then I wouldn't know either would I. My lot loved this wee band I found as much as me. They seem so familiar, maybe I had some as a child and that's why I was drawn to them, whatever the reason I love them.
I really want to get back to making stuff now the Bun's are back to school and I have a few full days. Somehow I haven't been able to get my making head on though, although I've got plenty of inspiration to get me going again.
I couldn't resist this quilting book. It's the best one for me that I've found so far. It's got templates all ready to use in the back, the fabrics are a mix of vintage and just downright cheery and the quilts are handquilted with tons of cheery stitches.
It works for me, because it's got the kind of quilts I'd like to make in it, the pictures are just up my street and it's full of original ideas (well ones I've not come across yet). All very important stuff when choosing a crafty book I think.
These two are my favourites. I'm keen to have a go at the one with black florals in a much bigger way than the dolly size here.
For the most part when I've not been working, I've been having a huge autumn clear-out. Bags full of stuff have gone to the charity shops and tons of muck hoovered up.
Then tonight I did something daft. I did it once before at the Buns old school and now I've gone and done it again. I went to the PTA AGM and volunteered to be Chair. The dad who was Chair definately needed a break after three years and no one else was coming forward so this idiot here put her hand up.
It must run in the family though as Eldest went for Chair of the school council this week. Posters were put up this week, campaign speeches were today and then voting tommorow. She's gone to bed all nervous about the results - fingers crossed.
