Flea Market Find, Some Crafting & A New Suprise

It has been a few weeks since I have joined in Sophie's flea market find so thought that today I would show you a recent flea market find when we were holidaying in Victoria. I fell in love with this beautiful porcelain rose swag with absolutely no damage at all and for the bargain price of $2.00

Don't you think that it is just the prettiest thing?

I have been doing a little sewing lately - I am currently working on a new design which includes this stitchery which is mirrored 3 times. The centre rose is done using some beautiful Cottage Garden Threads and the outer border is stitched using my favourite 2 strand Cosmo Threads.



I have also finished some beading - I am making some of these scissor fobs for christmas gifts and can add them to my list of finishes for Judith's Early Bird Christmas Challenge. They are made from crystals which are just so pretty but have not photographed well. I have made a couple extra of these which are not included as gifts on my list - Does anyone want to do a little private swap? E-Mail me at goldwen at bigpond.com if you are interested.


And here is my "new" suprise. Baby Mia born on Friday to my son Josh and his girlfriend Bec. They came to visit last night and here she is snuggling with me. Another excuse to make some more pretty baby bits.


Have a great week. I have a Beef Hot Pot in the slow cooker today whilst I am at work so will share the end result and recipe with you tomorrow.
