Look what I have been receiving in the mail lately. Firstly, I was lucky enough to win a giveaway of some lovely 'apples' from Wink Designs. The package was so beautifully wrapped and presented. I didn't really want to open it. But I did, and look what I found inside. A little felt purse with an apple on the front, of course, some apple fabric, and little packages of fabric and felt apples, leaves and covered buttons to match. And a gorgeous card with apples. Marina, your work is just beautiful. Thank you.
I also was a lucky winner at Silly Gilly's blog - look at these fantastic vintage boys patterns. What a hoot! I am getting quite a collection of vintage patterns now, so these will fit in very nicely as I don't have any boys ones. Don't you just love the little box brownie camera in the McCalls pattern. Go and visit Gillian - she has a great blog and sells some lovely things.
I have also been busy making a few 'Not Another Green Bag' bags. It is a bag pattern which was sold at the Sydney Quilt and Craft Fair on the Amitie stand in kit form. Fantastic bag to carry, and looks so much nicer than the eco friendly green bags that everybody has. I have used a Timtex base to make it sturdy.
And on my last post picturing the cupcakes, I was asked where the gorgeous paper cases came from. They came from Cake Deco and were $6.90 for 50.
