End of the week chatter....

My stitches were removed by the surgeon on Tuesday who was very pleased with my hand so hopefully in a few weeks once the healing process is complete I can get back to stitching. In the meantime as you know I have been keeping myself busy with E-Bay purchases. Look at this glorious TILDA fabric which I purchased.

And these as well. They are just so lovely. I intend to make myself something nice out of it once it arrives.

They have to come all the way from France.



I also found myself browsing the shelves of The Book Depositry again. My main book case in the house is now full of books so I need to get another one for all of the books which keep arriving in my letter box. They sent all 3 of these books in seperate parcels this week and each arrived on seperate days. I am sure that Mr MC thinks I have shares in the company - LOL.


Whilst out and about getting my stitches removed I couldn't pass up the opportunity of a little thrifting. Look at this gorgeous crystal bell with a tarnished silver handle - Isn't it spesh?




And this lovely glass lidded wooden box (without the buttons) - I thought it would look great with colour co-ordinated buttons.





So that kept me busy for one whole evening - Trying to sort out buttons with just one hand is a tedious and tiresome job - But it did keep me entertained.




And look what arrived here yesterday from MODA under the supervision of "Dreamer" the sewing assistant. Park Avenue Jelly Rolls, Fresh Cotton Charm Packs, Alliance Dessert Rolls and Lots of yardage..... Most are "On Special" in my E-Bay Shop. The Alliance Dessert Rolls are just $15.00 and Yardage is just $12.00.
So what do you have planned this weekend? I have bought some white spray paint which I will have to get Mr MC to help me with - I am not sure what is going to get sprayed yet but nothing will be safe I am sure - I just love white furniture - LOL !! Havea great weekend.

Yummy purchases Fee. The fabrics are going to be so much fun to work with and I adore your button box, what a great idea. Reading your post has made me decide to go visit the Book Depository next, if I buy anything I'll blame you-lol.

My goodness!~I've had LOTS to catch up on today. I'm SO sorry to hear about your surgery on your hand. I am SURE that I have carpal tunnel from years of upholstery/slipcovers/draperies,etc, but have not gone... GLAD that you are doing the right thing getting whatever surgery was required for whatever reason. good girl!
I received your lovely package today! thank you SO much. There's no telling how long it's been sitting at the post office, as we have not gotten our mail in two weeks! FINALLY, someone was coming over today and brought it to us. I can not begin to tell you how honored I am that you would take the time to send me such treasures. I look forward to posting about them today or tomorrow. You are entirely TOO generous!
I want to get over and check out your ebay store soon. I adore your pattern!~and can not wait to make it.
You are a divy! You have an eye for things. Do you remember Lovejoy? I think that you are Lady Jane! :)
My husband is like this. He can walk into a room FULL of "stuff" and immediately open a drawer,etc. and find a treasure!
Thank you AGAIN, for your kindness. HUGS! XO Sandra

Love your new purchases!

Glad you liked my blog post...doesn't she have a beautiful home..I think it's nice the way she's incorporated lots of interesting things in the rooms, but it doesn't look cluttered....probably cause it's so big!!
