Another Sunday ...

I'm starting to wonder if I should change my posting schedule to Sunday? It seems to be more achievable for me lately. After a busy week I went to bed at 9.30 on Friday evening. Those of you that know me will understand that such an early night is almost unheard of for this night owl. And I slept for a full twelve hours!

Anyway, I did get a few things done this past week - first up, I'm entirely thrilled with this lodestar ornament - the pattern is another by mmmCrafts:

It's so pretty! The pattern is for a tree topper, but there are options to make smaller ornaments too - thought I'd mention that if you go looking for the pattern for yourself.

I also completed the binding on Camo's aviation themed quilt - so glad to be able to have it done in his birthday week:

Rowley wanted to be involved in taking a photo of the finished quilt, and how could I say no to that sweet face? My dear friend Lizzy did a lovely job of quilting with a cloud pattern, and even helped me track down some more of the green fabric so I could use it in the binding. I am so lucky to have such beautiful friends xox

And last of all for today, on Tuesday I had an urgent sounding call from my Mum alerting me to some Copeland Spode Byron pieces that were at the Op-shop. Of course I dashed over to pick them up and was so surprised to find this:

There were six place settings in total of all the things you see in the picture. The two handled soup bowls are just darling, and to have a coffee service with demi tasse cups was such a surprise. I don't know how I'll squeeze it all into the buffet cabinet, but I'm sure I'll manage it somehow. And when I tell you that this treasure was only $32 dollars, you'll understand when I say I feel like I won the lottery.

I'm not sure what I'll work on in the sewing room this afternoon, I have so many things I can choose from, but you can be sure I'll find something to do. Hope you're all having a lovely weekend, chatter soon! xox

It doesn't matter when you post, it is always a pleasure to read your post. The star is amazing. You did an excellent job, as always. Thanks for the link. You did score BIG with the Copeland Spode Byron. What a treasure this is. Give Rowley a big hug for me, please. Enjoy! ;^)

instead of blogging on a schedule why not blog when you feel the urge to write and share photos. So many put themselves on a schedule and it feels like work not fun/sharing

Janet said...

I agree, it doesn't matter when you blog just continue to do so.
WOW, WOW AND WOW on the dishes what a steal. Congratulations on it. I can't wait to see it used.
The star is very pretty.
Rowley is gorgeous and so photogenic. I am sure Camo will love the quilt.
Take care and yes, don't make it feel like a
chore, just post when the urge strikes.

Twelve hours of sleep sounds wonderful. you probably needed it, too.
Beautiful star!
How amazing to find the china, and at such a great price! It wears a glorious shade of green!
